No, now comes no introduction to the Bible, no excursion into art and literature, I give you now the concentrated charge of my highly personal interpretation of Salome, as she appears in front of my inner eye, triggered by just this fragrance water.
I have to admit, Salome didn't cross my path purely by chance. I was looking for her. I did not know her at all, had never heard of her and suddenly she stood in front of me and I knew, yes, that's her! Exactly her and no other!
Salome is a woman, and by that I mean a grown woman, not a girl anymore. She's probably never been a girl, but as she is now, everything about her is just right. Her appearance, her being - everything is in perfect harmony.
When Salome enters the room, she is noticed. She has a presence and charisma that no one can get past. Not everyone likes it, I must admit, this pride that she confidently carries before her. But she doesn't care in the least. Because she knows who she is , what she wants and what she has to offer. It is not about being admired, desired or liked. The only thing she wants is to be allowed to be the way she wants to be. She takes this right.
But Salome is not an undercooled, arrogant person. Her pride is paired with a warm, inviting aura that makes her so irresistible. Salome combines the familiar with the uncertain, warming security with seductive wickedness. Supposed contradictions dissolve in her.
I admire this Salome. And when she accompanies me, she always radiates a little on me and I then have the feeling that I may also be a little like Salome.
The character Salome has been artistically processed in many respects, I do not need to contribute anything else at this point. But I find the name very appropriate for the fragrance. And it is certainly the most personal fragrance I own. I really like a lot of my fragrances, but this one stands out. Never would I have thought it possible for a fragrance to touch me so personally. I had been looking for that one scent that just exuded those qualities I described. About some detours I then came to him and was simply overwhelmed.
I was looking for an animalic, feminine fragrance. It achieves its femininity for me because it is at least as strong as it is soft (please don't rip me apart for this... I know about gender categories and how pointless they are - have mercy on me). Some other animalic creations seem emphatically hard/strong to me. I'd rather smell those on a man, then.
I would describe the fragrance chypre-like, which gets its appeal from indolic jasmine and animalic musk. You might think it's a vintage spicy scent, but thankfully it doesn't seem soapy due to an excess of aldehydes.
What can I say, Salome will hopefully be with me for a long time and it will be hard for other fragrances to knock it off its throne.
