Servus, Grüezi and hello to Germany, Austria and Switzerland! Here is your Systm again!
Well, who of you still knows this greeting? Right: Bet that... :D
Systm from somewhere on the A.... of the world bets: To me, Elysium PC seems so familiar and yet completely different!
yeah, i'm really bored again! :-D
Elysium Parfum Cologne starts, what a surprise, citrusy! You can smell very well and clearly the lemon, bergamot and lime out, which is nice and pleasant and not pungent or toilet cleaner/cleaner like. To my surprise, the red pepper also rises shortly after spraying in the nose, in any case, it then tingles in the nose and I almost have to sneeze.
After some time, I also perceive apple, May rose and very faint blackcurrant. Hach, what a beautiful fragrance!
Again some time later I smell cedar, benzoin, vanilla and musk, with the scent remaining slightly citrusy the whole time.
At first, Elysium PC doesn't remind me of anything I'm familiar with, and if it does, it's only minimally reminiscent of the citrusy top notes Creed uses in Virgin Island Water, for example. After some time, however, Elysium PC somehow seems familiar to me.... I had to think a bit and then it came to me: Bleu de Chanel EdP! Because of the benzoin I even have slight associations with the drydown of PDM Carlisle / XerJoff Amber Star but really only very light and short, maybe 10 minutes? Then the fragrance begins again to go in another, independent direction.
Elysium PC starts very nicely and mildly citrusy, then becomes citrusy-fruity and then citrusy-woody.
The fragrance has an interesting progression. With me, it is first independent, then it smells like Bleu de Chanel EdP, very faintly like Carlisle / Amber Star and then again independent. Yes, very slightly soapy but is that bad? NO!
Sillage / durability
Sillage and durability are mediocre. It lasts through a working day i.e. 8 hours, with the sillage and longevity noticeably decreasing hour by hour and the fragrance getting weaker and weaker. How far the fragrance radiates, I do not know, have never tested it.
@!Price / performance
I hate to say it, but P/L is more bad than good here. That's not to say the fragrance is bad, it definitely isn't! But for what the fragrance offers d. h. the durability and sillage, it is absolutely not worth the price! This is about Elysium PC and not about the perfume!
One smells here but clearly the high-quality ingredients (fragrance notes).
Elysium PC is a very nice, clean scent that fits perfectly in all seasons and is great for the office and appointments. But equally great for going out to dinner and other activities.
Thanks to VintageGold for the bottling :)
