I can' t help, Again I associate a gem-crystal with a parfum. During I was testing Bois de Copaiba some weeks ago I have noticed: I desired to wear my amethyst-jewels. That was when I prepared myself to listen to a concert. When I came to the choice of fragance I decided for 'Bois de Copaiba" though it's a risk to test a scent the first time in a situation like that. I wore black clothes. But before wearing the jewels the fragance has to be layed on the skin. However: Then I sprayed the scent on my skin. First there was developing a traditional full citric-flavour which was changing within a short time to a sweet and flowry unity mixed with a slight scent of ginger and vanilla.
But then the copahu-balm was laying down over the top note with a perfect woody flavour. It was overwhelming and at the same time in my mind and inner eye I saw violet. Before I had decided for pearls, but now I was longing to put on my amethyst-jewels. Not at all I had that in my mind before. First I had to hold it against the light enjoying the beautiful crystals. The smell of the fragrance was not allowing to forget it. It was changing then to a combination with mahagony-wood and mhyrre which I alway find a little disturbing at the first few moments. The bitter-almond-scent of the amaretto was following undoubted together by a very tiny touch of flavour of the poisenous cyanid. At first I was rejecting this bitter-sweet smell: No, this is not mine at all, never! But I did not have time any more so I had to go with that scent. And not only I was going to get accustomed I was beginning to like it very much. This parfum-composition was fraganting constantly and steadily with the strong intensity all over hours. Fortunately it does not have more than a strong sillage. The concert I am still remembering as violet music. In fact it was Mozart, Puccini etc. Bois de Copaiba has convinced yet conquerd me. I love it since then but will not wear it very often as far as I know now.
