"Daim" in French means suede. But I would never have thought of it if I hadn't looked it up or looked at Parfumo here. Because something completely different occurred to me! Namely the chocolate brand Daim, of which there are some versions in the meantime.
Hmmm... chocolate... some of you have been moaning about me here, because sometimes I would contribute with my comments to the fact that the water in your mouth also runs together and then you could not control yourselves any more, so that you stuff yourselves afterwards also with sweet stuff, mu ha ha ha, so you are all also real sweet cats (... Cats!!!! :DDD).
Well, now it's suede, I hope the scent isn't too overwhelming in the heat, phew...!
I smell a little leather and powdery iris at the beginning. The iris makes the scent softer, which also makes the suede smell quite soft. The fruity apricots give you a moderate but nice sweetness. The cardamom is quite strong at the beginning, which I personally like less. This makes the fragrance appear heavier and spicier. However, the cardamom gets weaker and weaker as the scent progresses and eventually radiates from the background, so that I soon don't find it so disturbing anymore.
A little later, the fragrance continues to smell soft leathery, with the leather initially smelling a little stronger, but then weakening again (well, because the fragrance generally weakens). The fruity-sweet notes also remain and smell quite nice. And, uh... that's about it, by and large.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is moderate and can therefore only be smelled at close range. Soon it becomes even weaker, so that others would have to get even closer if they wanted to perceive anything at all.
The shelf life is longer than ten hours, but it seems to be much shorter, because it becomes very weak with time.
The bottle is rectangular, high and thin. It is of high quality, lies well in the hand and looks quite nice for its simple design. On the front a rectangular label with name and logo can be seen, whereas on the newer Serge Lutens flacons the label is black and occupies almost the entire front. I think it is the case that if you don't screw on the spray head, you can put a round, black lid on top of the bottle, otherwise the lid is high and cylindrical. Like I said, a nice bottle.
Well, I think Daim Blond is a great fragrance because it's quite beautiful (even if I personally shouldn't be a leather fan,... and that although Batman has a leather mask and leather cape... argh, that's just by the way from your everyday nerd here, he he :D), but the fragrance isn't so great that it's worth the high price of a Serge Lutens fragrance (for me), but everyone has to know for themselves. It is not a special fragrance, but not soo 0815 either. Just try it out for yourself.
It smells quite autumnal to me, but I think it will hardly disturb me on warmer days because of its weak charisma. If it were a little stronger, I would say that you could also use it for going out, but it's a nice everyday scent.
Yeah, so you can try it sometime!
And to all those who want to moan at me again because of my Daim chocolate comparison, because I make them eat more than they like, I can only say to them: I don't care! Ssh! :DD
Hey he he!!!
