Praise of solidity
The word "solid" has had a pejorative aftertaste in German for quite some time (at the latest since the late sixties), as long as it is used in the figurative sense. Although this is by no means an empty word as a counter-concept to "windy" and "shady", social preference is clearly on the side of the non-binding, the adventurous, the unforeseen. Solidity is desirable as an all-round property only in the insurance sector and other nerve-racking high-voltage industries.

It's no different with scents. Flutteringly blown away textile fresheners, prollo bars exhaling half-life and lowered danger and raspberry-leather anchovy paste spasmodically brushed on amazement from the (pseudo-)niche: Between all the non-binding, the adventurous and the unforeseen (in all its habitualization not infrequently twisted into binding, routine predictability, of all things, but that is not the point here), - between all this pale splendour, therefore, my own man often thinks: Doesn't there just... something solid? That fulfills its task, simply smells good, does this for a long time and doesn't even want to surprise me, but instead with a medium degree of complexity and the highest balance simply satisfies the aesthetic feeling olfactorically? Wouldn't such a fragrance even surprise me, upset me and inspire me to actually help me achieve this certain coolness in the sense of a relaxed decoupling from the world? Wouldn't such a solid fragrance indeed be - new avant-garde?

Harry Lehmann's "Russian Eau de Cologne" is undoubtedly recommended as the pretender to the throne of such a conceivable title ("Avant-garde through solidity"). As part of my first Lehmann order, I was particularly excited about this candidate - and not only because of his indefinite, but certainly very old age (Weimar? could be!). And boy, oh boy, he didn't disappoint! The freshness directly after the spraying was described here sporadically with "citric" and surely there is also some citric gathered here; nevertheless, my impression was rather an alcoholic one. Brandy? Cognac? More like Münsteraner camp grain! Clear and round, but still fresh and pleasantly shaving watery. After a few minutes it becomes extremely linear, but in the best sense: friendly (wild) leather notes and humanly dosed oak moss shine brightly, while the cologne water character remains subtle and helps to keep both components in balance
The durability is just like the Sillage surprisingly high. "Russische Eau de Cologne" (Russian Eau de Cologne) is quiet in the meantime (at least on me), only to be noticed again soon thereafter with elan - and to attract attention: Two arm lengths are still possible after a few hours, whereby intensity and endurance can be increased safely and predictably by one or two more sprays. With the ridiculously low price called for, a wasteful approach, by the way, doesn't hurt at all. It is this linear solidity, made simply competent, that makes my eyes shine whenever I put on this clay man.
