Commissioner Olfattke takes a time-out
Last chapter - Many astonishments

Commissioner Olfattke was amazed today.

On the one hand there was the fact that the thought of his departure tomorrow made him discontented. Just three days ago he had longed for the moment when his silly forced vacation would finally end.

On the other hand, he was just taking part in a kind of bus trip. It had led to Gut Emkendorf, one of the country music festivals that took place every summer as part of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. And despite all the arrogance of the capital, he had to admit to himself that Berlin did not offer such an experience. More remarkable, however, was the fact that he, who had previously reviled the participants on these tours as a collective Alzheimer's self-experiment, had been embarrassed to find that the majority of the remaining passengers were hardly older than himself. But much nicer.

Thirdly, he was amazed by his scent of the day. What now - di Sale? Already the prelude had been after short salt little house above all herbaceous-spicy-green, with tidy ethereal oils thereby. A swelling, sugary sweetness that diffusely reminded him of fir needles and scuffed past the fir honey did not fit into the picture either. You had to smell pretty much to feel a distant maritime aura. And the tide was out. During the morning, the sweetness had given way to a more balsamic, creamy, slightly bitter impression, which finally ended in mild wood. And before that problematic muff could have developed, the scent - as clever as it is atypical for the manufacturer - faded away in the course of the afternoon, leaving only a brackish-gray hint behind. Whatever sea might be meant by this, the nearby Baltic Sea was certainly not.

Fourth, yesterday's experience of a harmless mini-crime case had made it clear to him that he was by no means as dull as he had thought. It had felt surprisingly much better not to find a massacre at a crime scene, but only to solve a simple case of vandalism. Over the years, he may have become thinner-skinned instead of thicker-skinned. He'd think about it.

But by far the most amazing thing was the little piece of paper in his wallet, on which two names and an address had been scribbled in eagerly clumsy children's handwriting. He, of all people, a cynical sourpuss who had always made a bow about children, had been forced, so to speak, to become a pen friend of two primary school pupils. With that sincerely worried sympathy, how only children can feel towards the old, the two had reassuringly assured him that it didn't matter at all that he didn't have a WhatsApp and so he was allowed to write a letter as well.

His new smile about this consideration made him realize that he urgently needed to think through his relationship with children in general. Maybe he could practice on that with... Martin? Marvin? Marius? What was the boy's name? Damn, he didn't even know his grandnephew's name anymore. Although his sister had only raved to him about her newly hatched grandson three weeks ago. And he had barely listened.

Tomorrow night, he'd call her

Holiday refresher
Profumum Roma. Niche brand from Rome. Flacons unspectacularly beautiful. Ratings here are from 0 to 10. So this scent must be an extreme splitter. One you love or hate. Let's see/smell.

As my consultant said in my favourite perfumery: this fragrance brings her to the sea and/or memories of her last holiday by the sea. I see I was not sure at first whether I would like this mixture of (synthetic) salt and seaweed. So first out in the fresh air and after 30 minutes continue to smell. What do you want me to say? Yes, Acqua di sale will bring you to the sea in your mind, this salty seaweed note now lets a few woods sound through and compared to the classic smell on (Italian) coasts, the fragrance is very fine, almost soft around the corner. In the style of most Profumum Roma creations, a slightly sweet note has been added to this water without ever becoming intrusive. Well so, because these sweet scents are mine so not at all.

I find AdS rather one-dimensional, nothing seems to develop, and I don't mean that at all negatively. Even after 10 hours, with my eyes closed, I had the feeling of strolling along the Lungomare repubblica in Riccione, so intensely this fragrance sticks to you. And I like this saltiness that is so characteristic that makes the fragrance unique and unmistakable. Alone for that there is an extra point from me, because how many perfumes are today so similar to others, partly almost interchangeable.

Sillage strong, durability massive.

Whether AdS is good or not is up to each individual. I understand a 10 rating, then it is simply a direct hit. I find a zero a bit harsh, because sooooooooo it's not bad now either :-)

For me it's just a great summer scent that makes every beach holiday longer/revive

An olfactory daydream
A trip by boat from Tuscany to Sardinia. Around you the smell of the salty sea and in front of you the smell of Sardinia and the myrtle floating towards you. A scent that clears your head, makes you happy and pleases almost everyone after giving you a wonderful feeling of lightness and freshness.

A day at the swimming pool
This is a very expensive, over-priced scent! I tested it for a very long time, having been lucky enough to obtain several decants of it before writing this review. Quite an original perfume - pretty unusual in its approach to the subject of salt and the sea. There's no development in this fragrance, it is just "salty" and smells like your skin after a day at the swimming pool with a touch of a chlorine overtone. A new interpretation of an aquatic scent. Aria di Mare by Il Profumo is quite similar, but more playful. Tirrenico by Profumi del Forte points into the same direction. But both fragrances mentioned here for comparision are more interesting, more herbaceous, too, whereas Acqua di Sale is a perfume which is totally mono-linear and could bore you stiff after several applications. Some people pay the moon in order to smell...different. Nice after a long summer holiday when you are back at home and wish you were not. Tremendous staying-power included!
