Tulip is the new leather
Much has been written in this forum about the difference between modern leather scents and those of old style, also by me. Perhaps not the most scientifically exact, but at least unbeatably pictorial, the Konsalik has done in his (surprisingly underpocalized) commentary on Davidoff's Leather Blend: Before the fragrance industry could really reproduce leather, it evoked the adjacent and surrounding scent impressions, so that in the mind of the perceiver the gap closed with leather as if by magic. Today, leather is simply slammed in front of your bib. Just like with the two methods of conceiving an erotic image: You can show a silk stocking that has fallen to the floor or a brightly lit naked body
The more radical challenge in this respect is the tulip fragrance. Because tulips do not smell. At least not if you're not a bee. So the only way to go about this is to take the indirect approach. Lehmann has succeeded excellently with this fragrance (similar to Byredo with La Tulipe, the two fragrances would be worth a parallel review) in capturing sensually, with very simple means, that which surrounds the tulip spiritually and which I can't express more aptly than Ttfortwo (whose brilliant commentary I highly recommend, and to complement it perhaps that of Gelis and Asphodel), which is why I'm taking it from her: Spring and early summer, freshness, uncomplicated beauty, morning dampness and floweriness without any scent or meaning.

For the Lehmannian tulip, a triangle was formed by a clear, possibly even foregrounded, tart velvety citric, a really unusually beautiful, but very unobtrusive and rather unspecific floral note, which I harmoniously attribute to the violet, and a strong green element reminiscent of meadows and bushes in the morning dew, which could come from tulip leaves. And then in the middle of the triangle blossoms: the tulip.

As far as the floral pole mentioned in the second place is concerned, I would also consider a reference to honeysuckle and, even more so, to freesia to be plausible. I cannot perceive the rose geranium mentioned above in the fragrance description (which should not come from the manufacturer, as HL never gives notes) and I can vouch for the fact that the fragrance does not smell promimentally of this flower, which I also find difficult to describe. Maybe there is only a little bit of it in it to give the light scent more substance.

The fragrance in its overall composition is of classical, well-balanced beauty. There are no overhangs, nothing eccentric or offensive. The citric doesn't stand out aggressively (tulip is, although a summer scent with citric, infinitely far from a cologne), the flowers never become dominantly heavy-blooded and melancholy, and the green never tips over into the greenish and vegetable (like Sisley's Eau de Campagne, which I like very much). In the end, I usually burn for such perfectly balanced scents, I am an Apollinic at heart.

Tulip is perceived here primarily as the fragrance for women. That's not entirely unreasonable. The scent is certainly most becoming to the ladies. It is there for all age groups from the senior citizens' residence to the grammar school middle school without restrictions. I see it more in the office and workshop and in leisure time and sports (if you wear fragrances there) than in mundane activities (although it would also go well with a summer open-air theatre performance). I maintain that it exposes its wearer to a highlight of attraction, whereby it radiates more a vitamin-rich, sporty and well-washed Lätta sexiness (or alternatively a serene Empire dress beauty) than complicated wickedness.

However, the view of tuple as a women's fragrance could also be influenced by the fact that soliflores (although this is only a nominal soliflore) are considered to be less masculine. However, tulip can also be considered at least as good a citrus-green summertime scent in the style of Creed's original vetiver, and then it becomes fully suitable for men. I use Tulip regularly and am still as enthusiastic about it as I was at the beginning. I never changed my score, which I established at the latest when I wrote the statement, for good reason, Tulip is and remains a 9 for me. What I am just a little bit surprised about today are the 9 durability points. It is possible that the manufacturer has (I've bought some more) had to reduce the fixatives under the influence of some guidelines (he once hinted at something like that, but not specifically for this fragrance).

Not included is "Tulip" in the current hiking fragrance pack initiated by me (my first...), for which there are still a few places available. For those who are interested: Have a look at the forum.
