The bottle is the best!
I was really curious about this fragrance, albeit primarily because of the bottle. If there's a snake draped on anything, I'll be blown away. Now I finally had the opportunity and unfortunately I have to say: the bottle is the best thing about this perfume!
Ylang-ylang, popcorn and vanilla are mentioned in the accompanying text to my little specimen and there's hardly anything more to smell. By design, Pure XS Olympéa is very similar, the same combination of vanilla, sweet and salty. But I find Olympéa more harmonious, more harmonious and better made. But the basic idea for this fragrance is so good - if only it had been better implemented! I can smell the popcorn, but it hardly comes into its own. If popcorn had been more dominant and saltier, less sweet, it would have done the fragrance good, giving it more depth and character. So at the beginning Ylang-Ylang unfortunately knocks everything down; it's somehow all too much, it even causes me a slight headache and a violent aversion, when this over-dominant note turns into something that smells slightly fermented, like fully ripe honeydew melons shortly before rotting. After two to three hours this finally subsides a little and the fragrance becomes more cuddly, harmonious and harmonious. It now resembles even more Olympéa, becomes sweet-salty, vanilla with a woody base. But the ylang-ylang dominance and this hint of ripe honeydew melon just won't go away, so I'm afraid to wear the scent a second time. If you have Olympéa, you don't need it anymore and if you are thinking about buying Pure XS... there is only one justification: the bottle! Otherwise Olympéa is always more beautiful and harmonious, IF you want to go in the salty vanilla direction. And a real gourmand isn't for me either, by the way.
