For the lovers of traditional feminine florals
Hannele is one of the perfumes I love more and more with each sniff. The opening initially put me off, because rose is one of those classic notes I really don't love, but it dissipates in seconds, giving way to a powdery floral bouquet where rose doesn't dominate (or turn soapy) but rather lends a delicate feminine feel to the fragrance.

This is also one of the few perfumes around whose marketing is absolutely spot-on: this does remind me of the classic 1950s Finnish film beauties and the soap-fresh image of Armi Kuusela, the first-ever Miss Universe. This is not a modern perfume in its approach, and probably won't appeal to younger generations, but that is part of its charm. Throughout its development it maintains a very powdery feel, freshened up by lilacs, and the dry-down is a classical sandalwood-vanilla-tonka harmony.

Hannele also has good projection - spray carefully, because this lady will easily fill up a small room.

As such there isn't much that is new about this composition per se: but its release in a time where the general public's tastes lie in wan florals and watery freshness is kind of surprising, and very refreshing. It has a distinct retro feel that nevertheless doesn't romanticize the past to the point of sentimentality, despite its rosy qualities. It is refined, classy, and well worth a try for any aspiring perfumista.
