I'm sure Kylo Ren doesn't use that scent...!
Hello, noses! Good evening and welcome to a new comment from me. Probably 50% of the potential readers, but above all readers, have just run away because of my title alone... after all, it contains the name of a Star Wars character from the newer movies. However... I could ask those who have run away now how they even know the name Kylo Ren or remembered it and know that this character is from Star Wars... after all, Kylo is one of the new villains and despite his novel lightsaber he's not as iconic and well known as Darth Vader, who even all those who have never seen Star Wars actually know... but okay, that's fine,... just run away. You freaks!! D
So... and why am I thinking of Kylo Ren here? Apart from the fact that I don't like this milky-faced and boyish looking Obermotz at all, I had to think of him as a nerdiger Star Wars fan, because in the fragrance list below among other things Yi Yi Ren is listed. And when I think of "Ren", I think of Kylo Ren.

And that I have absolutely no idea what Yi Yi Ren really is, I don't have to mention, do I?

But let's get back to the scent. I was quite interested in the scent. Because I use as body cream the Dao series of rituals and I had always liked his scent, even if it should come across a little feminine every now and then, but hey, I only use the cream for myself, so whatever. And I hadn't been interested in any real body cream for a long time, until I had just discovered the one from Rituals. And a body cream, at least for my arms, is just necessary, because otherwise they will dry out sometime because of you, yes exactly WAY YOU! Since I test so many scents for you!!! Yes, you have a guilty conscience, because look what I'm doing for you here, and you call me nerd... tsss....

The fragrance:
Soo, you know what? The fragrance smells just like the body cream or other products in the Dao range from Rituals. You can smell lotus, which has a great, flowery-sweet scent and which comes across beautifully exotic. And somehow its scent reminds me a little of coconut...
Hm... what's Yi Yi Ren now? According to the internet they should be Jobstränensamen (I don't even want to know what that is again...!), and that they are mainly used in traditional Chinese medicine. I don't know how they smell now either. Probably they work together with the lotus and give the fragrance just this striking scent of the Dao cream, which smells very nice in my opinion.
Yeah, and that was it, actually. That's all you smell. So the fragrance smells just like the cream, and that without any great fragrance development or divisions into head, heart and base.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The radiance is rather weaker, I would even say that it is as strong (or weak) as the cream, only that it radiates longer and does not weaken as fast as the cream. But this does not mean that the fragrance has a long shelf life. I would assume a maximum of about three to four hours here.

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical and green. You can see the logo of Rituals and the name of the fragrance on it. The lid is cylindrical and bronze coloured. The bottle looks okay because of the colour, but is still very simple.

So, that was the scent to the Dao series. I thought it was quite good, of course, I like this line too, but I would also recommend you to try the scent. It may be very simple and unfortunately also quite weak in its charisma, but it smells really nice.

As described here on Parfumo, such a fragrance can actually be used for meditation or simply to create a pleasant atmosphere. It is one of those fragrances that you like to have in your nose all the time, because they are neither too sweet nor too intrusive, nor too annoying, nor too stuffy or anything else. It's like just having your peace and quiet. On a beautiful spring or summer day. Where you sit outside in the park or in the garden, surrounded by beautiful smells, few noises, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and many noisy people, but more in nature with soothing sounds of animals like birds, insects, a brook and similar great things (but if you see hand-sized killer wasps, then I'd rather leave :D).

Yes, the scent is recommendable in my opinion! So test him if you ever meet him!

And that's it (already noticed, "that's it" sounds like "Star Wars".... Okay okay, I'm already quiet!), I wish you a nice, relaxed evening. See you next time :)

In harmony with myself
This scent belongs also to my favorites, already for years, in particular to my favorite cuddly scents.
To establish the balance of Yin and Yang, he is advertised - and that is no exaggeration.
In his gentleness he helps me to calm down, to find my inner balance, to be in harmony with myself, to come down.
The fragrance would go well with yoga, for example, or even, freshly showered, with a cup of tea, or a glass of wine, on a warm summer evening to relax on the balcony.
What Yi-Yi-Ren is, I have no idea, but the lotus is in any case the most beautiful lotus I know.
It's a soft fragrance, but it's still very perceptible. I combine it with the corresponding care products. Thus I get also a tidy durability.
