Simple ISO E Super - Thought for layering - unfortunately no highlight
Now I am going to the rituals because I have received a voucher for a free product for my birthday and immediately think to myself: WHAT IS THIS? Where are my perfumes? Oh no, not another assortment change...
YES. And then there's this scent there... How magically attracted by the word ISO E Super I storm right at it and spray first of all. Now you're probably wondering... What's that? What's he like?
Yeah, what can I say? After I was captivated by Zarkoperfume's Molécule 234-38 and Juliette has a gun's Not a perfume, I ordered Ambroxan and several variants of ISO E Super (ISO E Super, Sylvamber & Timbersilk). That's why my nose is now very sensitive to these fragrances. The ritual L'Essence was unfortunately the worst variant ever chosen.
However, you should keep in mind that Rituals intends to market this fragrance as a layer fragrance so that you don't use it individually, but spray it over the other fragrances. That makes the perfume's more expensive, of course, without one actually noticing it... Suddenly you buy 2 fragrances... Smart concept...
Does it at least work? Yes! If you layer this perfume with a different fragrance, it will hardly change the fragrance of the perfume you are applying, but it will prolong its shelf life and also the sillage. This is due to the ISO E Super. And it's definitely great for that.
But is it worth it? No! Because on the one hand the scents already hold quite well and on the other hand it is simply ISO E Super, which you can also order elsewhere for 20% of the price of Rituals. The slightly diluted bottle has exactly the same effect and smells exactly the same. The only one where I'm not 100% sure whether it's ISO E Super, Sylvamber or Timbersilk. I'd have to sniff that out again at home.
In any case, however, it is exactly this fragrance variant that almost burns in the nose, it is so dry. Woody, dusty. You don't like to take deep breaths.
Solo, it's definitely not wearable. Besides, the scent disappears very quickly. He appears - as we know it - every now and then also again. But all in all, I wouldn't make a buy recommendation here. You are better off with the other more expensive fragrances, because the ISO E Supers they contain are simply the better ones, which appear smoother and gentler. UNd these you get on the market unfortunately not simply so to buy.
