An apple tree in late autumn
When I put on the scent, I was a little scared at first: I got 1:1 cheap nail polish remover smell in my nose. I sniffed again. Still nail polish remover. Only after a few minutes does this note warp to make way for something flowery, bitter. I intuitively thought of violets and old grannies. Finally, something fruity is emerging, an apple that is becoming more and more intense and completely displaces the flowers. At first it is pleasant, the perfume smells like an autumn meadow. You can smell the moss, the leaves, the late bloomers and the ripe apples that have fallen to the ground. This phase is very beautiful, it smells like autumn, without being sweet, like fruit, without being artificial, earthy, without being musty, but it lasted only very short with me.
The apple is still increasing in intensity. At some point he crosses the border of the pleasant and tips over into the fermented. It now smells like fermented cider on a hay nest. Alternatively, the smell somehow reminds me of pencil. It's funny, this "Artemisia".
The apple withdraws a little. The autumn meadow is back, but it is now a little later in the year, the late bloomers are already faded and there are only the old apples and leaves. When are the birds gonna get all these apples? I also smell a few sour rowan berries on the buffet, perhaps they taste better to the birds as long as the abundance still prevails. You'd better hurry. The fruits ferment more and more.
Ah, they're getting to the apples. Now the perfume has a very pleasant smell.
It ends in a soft, warm vanilla-wood scent, which still keeps a memory of the sour-harsh apple scent. The finale is very nice.
I want to like the fragrance because it captures the autumn smell of an apple tree very authentically. It's probably the first fruit scent where I don't flee out of sweetness. But I wouldn't wear the scent, the "fermented must phase" disturbs me much too much. Still, I like the idea of the fragrance and it's definitely something else. But perhaps less apple would have done the composition some good.
