Juicy beauty ponders on sunny Sundays
"Aqaysos" sounds like a Greek demigod, but it is my souvenir and my memory of a great city trip to Vienna. He just jumped up my nose as a spring companion, as you rarely experience it. Love at first sight, there's no other way to express it. Pierre Guillome has once again surpassed himself. "Aqaysos" is a creamy juicy currant scent with enough depth and treats to never get bored and keep you busy for days. A bitter-green fruit that I can't get out of my head...

Some blackcurrant, some musk, some dry grasses and some sunshine - that's a real work of art. Not the most beautiful currant of all time, because it is much more than that. It's not a monothematic scent. Much more a painting emerges, an impression that cannot be replaced or described. Purple, green, yellow, brown. Airy, complex, aromatic and light-footed. Light wind, cool hay, precocious berries, sparkling sparkling water. And all this on a hint of cocoa that you almost miss at the end when you blink. Because that is the Achilles tendon of this hero - he doesn't honor you forever, to say the least... All in all, however, an exceptional fragrance. A perfumed van Gogh.

Flacon: thick glass, black, good in the hand, stylish, great sprayer - nothing to complain about!
Sillage: a tender currant seedling.
Shelf life: a small minus point - 5 hours "only".

Conclusion: exactly for such olfactory miniorgasms we love and practice our hobby. Perfume in all its beauty. Sophisticated, high quality, special. You'll never get anything like that off the peg in a Douglas. Spring can come!

Black denim
They are my first choice for casual trousers, they almost always fit, the wardrobe is full of them, and you always buy them again because you think you still don't have enough. According to this, if you're looking for a new summer fragrance and don't want to buy any more perfumed black jeans, you shouldn't ask for one in the store. My perfumed black jeans are my citric summer visitors, I love them, but they are just enough for me. So a short announcement was made to the specialist staff of my trust, with a request not to pick out any black jeans. Said, done.

In front of me are a few modern looking, not really sharp-edged, yet rather striking flacons that look as if they are filled with engine oil. Black. Fragrances by Pierre Guillaume, French fragrance prodigy, chemist, perfumer and freethinker, a modern, urban type of his craft who has been creating perfumes for a little over 15 years, at home in science as well as in his craft. Exciting Type.

One of the candidates presented to me stands out in particular. The start is alcoholic, medical, tart, the comparison with Voltaren ointment from DaveGahan fits perfectly, the nose gets stuck because it smells surprisingly attractive, but already tart, dark shakiness mixes into the picture. Lime. No tropical cocktail lime, but a bitter, bitter lime that reminds me more of grapefruit and bergamot, even if none of it is listed in the list of ingredients. The impression is firm, matt, a dark, defined tone that is additionally tinted by coriander. Coriander I can't smell isolated, no contrast, so it lies on the lime more like an extra layer of varnish that gives it even more strength and edge.

A further facet now opens up as the fragrance develops: black currant, properly peppered, with matt, dry, light musk. As soon as berries and musks play a central role in a fragrance, I like to get into an inner fight-or-flight state. The range, with which both are used in fragrances, is enormous, from animalistically sweaty to clean-dry is everything in musk, both I like depending on the environment sometimes more, sometimes less. Berries are harder there. In such beautiful and proven contrasts as raspberry/leather they inspire me exceptionally, in synthetic-sweet blackjacks with Happy Berry permanent grins in the face they rob me of the last nerve. Here currant, diamond black, completely unsweet, aromatic, somewhat smoky and with a lot of pepper, presented in a dry, matt musk setting. In addition, there is a cool, light wood note, which at first, however, only suggests itself.

What a great idea. The scent now feels like driving through a pine forest in a convertible after a hot day on the beach at dusk (in my case I would wish for a Jaguar E-Type, it should be suitably black), from the Pacific a cool, foggy breeze. During the day one has sweated, but now one shivers slightly, while the skin is still burning from the sun. The slight dry sweating can also be found in the fragrance, I lean out of the window so far as to attribute it to the animal musk part, but this is by no means unpleasant or repulsive, but quasi just perceptible vibrates with and increases the charm of the impression, and that's how it should be. In this phase of cooling down, the fragrance remains quite a while, berry, musk, pepper, citric, wood, all there and polished to a very harmonious overall.

The fragrance slowly cools down towards the base, becomes lighter, almost menthol-green and resinous-woody, the light, I think synthetic wood tones stand out more clearly, while the dark green citric of the start, the blackness of cassis and pepper linger for a long time.

Aqaysos is an exciting, atypical dark, yet cool and fresh scent for the summer, which creates a harmonious picture from atypical components. He looks completely modern to me, I place him completely in the here and now. He goes his own way for a fragrance that fits perfectly into the hot season and will play a special role in my summer fragrances in the coming season with its cool and edgy facets

The bitter soul of the blackest currant. Pepper seeds glowing purple. The echo of subterranean thunder. Rocky layers shaken in the deep.+4
