Price dwarf uprising
Insurrection II Wild is not a big one price-wise (quite the opposite- quite a small one), but makes a fierce stand against authority in the form of "Naxos" and "Pure Havane".
I want to start with a memory. And that is of my childhood. During this I loved these red Em-eukal cough sweets, wild cherry flavour. I was only too happy to suck these as a child, cough or no cough. I still remember my grandpa frequently taking me to the pharmacy downtown and buying me a big pack of Em-eukals. And I associate one smell in particular with my grandpa, the smell of (delicious) cigars. And so what belongs together comes together - sweet cherry tobacco DNA.
But from the beginning... Also here (as with Sillage by Armaf) everything started with the fact that I sprayed in the perfumery once again randomly loose, including "Naxos" by Xerjoff. I was instantly blown away by this one and did a little more research on this fragrance. It turns out that "Pure Havane" by Mugler should be a fragrance twin. Since I always wanted to try this one, too, I looked it up in perfume stores, but couldn't find it anywhere; it was also sold out everywhere on the internet. Then I discovered that "Insurrection II Wild" is supposed to be a twin of "Pure Havane". When I then also saw the price on the Internet, I ordered the fragrance without further ado blindly on the Internet.
Meanwhile, I had enough time to test this wild riot extensively. Right away it should be said that I had "Naxos" a little differently in memory. This had a stronger honey note and was overall creamier. Instead, I perceive a very clear cherry in the opening of "Insurrection", even though it is not listed as a fragrance note at all. Moreover, the cherry is still accompanied by something fresh, which may indeed be mint, as has already been noted here in the comments. But also the honey and tobacco, which are listed as fragrance notes of course, you can perceive quite.
In the heart note "Insurrection" is then a little sweeter and a light cocoa note joins the cherry, which also never completely disappears in the further course of the fragrance. In the drydown, I personally can no longer detect any significant change and the scent remains consistently tobacco cherry-sweet. Black Forest cake meets it in fact also quite well.
The sillage of the fragrance is quite strong especially in the opening and is able to fill a room well. Also the durability is with me on the skin with about 8 hours quite in the good range, just for the price. Speaking of price - you can already tell from my headline. "Insurrection" is available on the internet for already about 20€- 25€ for 90ml. I understand that as a clear challenge to the "big" fragrances, if you calculate this once. For the price of a "Naxos" you can buy just under 10 flacons of "Insurrection", still about 4 for the price of a "Pure Havane".
I do not want to talk badly about these fragrances, because they also deliver a good quality and just "Naxos" comes along for me again more elegant and adult, so that the price here may also be justified. I just want to suggest that "Insurrection" does not need to hide from its big brothers and for the price is worth a purchase all the time.
The bottle also makes something, even if it is not the most beautiful. But as he comes along, packed in a slipcase, which is reminiscent of a Bible, can already be amazed.
Like all fragrances with this fragrance DA "Insurrection" can unfold best in autumn and winter and can actually be worn by any age group. Since he comes across but rather sweet and less creamy, as bspw. Naxos, he can be worn especially by the slightly younger well.
So who likes "Em-eukal" cough drops, delicious hookah tobacco is not averse and looking for a lot of fragrance for little money, I can only warmly recommend "Insurrection II Wild".
