Searching for the remote culture of the Incas
When a perfume is named "Les Grandes Prêtresses Incas / The Great Inca Priestesses" I' m expecting an extraordinary scent.
A long time ago, about 35 years I had the possibility to visit a very exclusive and private exibition of the art of the Incas; "The gold of the Incas" in Switzerland. I remember that there was explained that the "Gold of Incas" were in common their ability of biological galvanic, which they applied to cover not so precious materials. And what I out of all remember is that no face, no depicted animal no mask, nor sculpture had a hint of a smile or any kindness or tender expression. They all had frightening, painfull and dreadfull expressions of cruelty. That culture did not seem to have hope and no confidence.
I can't help, but since then, if I watch photos of the people of the Andes I yet seem to recognize in their faces a certain expression of the art of their ancestors: Gloomy and depressing. The descendants of the prehistoric Inca may forgive me.
Out of that we have the idea of cocoa which they drank, bitter and without sugar and of people chewing coca-leaves.
But concerning the scent "Les Grandes Prêtresses Incas / The Great Inca Priestesses" I'm not smelling something like the bitter and woody scent of real and fresh grinded cocoa-beans nor do I know the smell of coca-leaves. I assume the smell of coca-leaves as a green taste and scent.
But in "Les Grandes Prêtresses Incas / The Great Inca Priestesses" the ouverture for me has something disgusting, a smell of old yeast.
But this smell I had already in several scents and there must be responsible a certain ingredience I cannot identify. For instance in the top note of "Memoirs of a Trespasser" by Imaginary Authors" had the same smell. Similar smells I experienced in certain mono-santal-scents.
Fortunately this note is vanishing every time I tested "Les Grandes Prêtresses Incas / The Great Inca Priestesses" after 15 minutes.
Then a very shy fragrance is apearing, green, fresh, some spices, something woody and a slight bitterness. This is followed by a weak but delicious flower-mixture, creamy and green as well.
This very weak and detaining fragrance is astonishingly long lasting.
Ignoring the for me really peculiar beginning it is a well composed scent with a sillage which I can perceive only a few centimeters away from my skin.
I wonder if "Les Grandes Prêtresses Incas / The Great Inca Priestesses" could be characterized as a real perfume as weak as I experienced it every time I tested it. Just if I'm pondering the price.
