A soft bed for the queen
I was very curious about this Piguet, because he seems to have inspired the fantasy and love of writing of some commentators. Probably the comments were written during sleepless nights...
(L' insomnuit = sleepless night).
I must confess, after the first spraying I found it disappointing at first: Purple melancholy with a little bit of cream blows towards me. A sighing autumn violet in the mist... That will not rob me of sleep! Fortunately, after some time the scent picks up speed and unfolds more and more. Behold, the mist clears and the bergamot conjures up a few pale, warm sunrays and the tired violet turns into a fruity sweetness. In the fragrance pyramid there is plum, in my opinion it is more like plum jam.
Plum puree, without spices. More and more the smell is dominated by an intensive flowering, the iris. In the background the oud is discreetly added, bringing wood and a small autumn fire into play. This smells deliciously fruity, quite intense.
But all the time I have the feeling that something is missing...
The perfume gives no satisfaction, no peace. This fruity iris is beguilingly beautiful, but it simply doesn't give you peace...
I often perceive flowers in perfume as "communicative".it's as if they want to laugh, chat, sing, languish, sigh, attract attention.
While citrus scents simply smile and shine, the woods are present in quiet beauty ,and you can wallow in spices.
For my taste a flower must be well "wrapped".
For the feeling "Now it is good and a round thing", the basis is missing. Now that it is developing aromatically bit by bit, the perfume becomes pleasant, round and very appetising.
The plum jam iris queen is, so to speak, a soft bed made of the warm and spicy mixture of tonka, sandalwood, cedar...prepared, she calms down.
Now is the time to gently slumber away, but that would be a pity! Because the fragrance is so beautiful now and lasts and lasts and lasts...
So, off into the night, whatever it may be, (because that's what L'insomnuit was invented for) and let others share in the fragrance. It shouldn't be that hard, the fragrance is noticeable !
As so often, this little fragrance has grown dear to my heart through intensive occupation with it and I don't know if I can live without it...
It simply fits too well into the autumn! :-)

The Devotional Pulsating Iris
First of all, one can perceive an intense and powerful sweetish fruity note that evokes in me the image of a wonderful, freshly harvested dark purple plum.

At the same time, the plum is accompanied by a fine citric nuance, which also brings with it very delicate herbaceous features and in my opinion ensures that the plum does not appear sweet - sticky, but pleasantly brightly sweet and is due to the bergamot.

These two notes are accompanied by a light, but penetrating fresh, delicately ethereal wooden nuance, which sets a wonderful soft accent and comes from the fir balsam
The hunch, which is already perceivable subliminally at the beginning, unfolded completely a little bit later.

A very intensely dense, creamy, very fine, lovely, powdery note can now be perceived, which hides tender, flowery nuances in the background and almost drives my heart into a heart attack and makes me feel completely happy!

"Didd is' aber noch nicht' allet - This is really the crown uffjesetzt here!" :-)

The Iris - Absolue is supported by another Iris note, which seems a little more buttery, has a little more intense creamy and quite decent earthy roots and comes from the Iris - Concrete.

In the background and only in my case floating briefly in front of the skin, a very fine, from the inside warming, sweet woody, very soft resinous nuance provides a wonderful mystical depth, which gives the scent something devoted and pulsating and is due to the oud.

In the last 4 hours a smooth, creamy, very discreetly powdery, vanilla-like, softly spicy almond cream can be perceived, which thanks to the cedar wood receives a fine soft wooden background and ensures a wonderful finish.

Cypriol and sandalwood I couldn't see, but I can imagine very well that these fragrances were used for complementation.

In total, the fragrance lasts 9.5 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is conceived in the first hour in such a way that one is perceived very clearly to the 1.5 meters and then oscillates 2.5 hours on a very clearly perceptible whole arm length, before it minimizes itself in quiet steps up to the conclusion of the smell
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "ParfumAholic" for the bottling.
