Clean Moschus and I - a love-hate relationship
Well, let's just say we have a difficult relationship, the Clean Musk and me. For me, he is often not so clean, but rather like a quite stubborn admirer, who has been told 100 times by the flower that he would be quite nice, but a relationship would be out of the question. And the guy just doesn't get it. That's how it is with the clean musk and me - it can become quite penetrating in my nose, stick to the skin like chewing gum under my shoe and generally strain my nerves quite a bit.
Panthea begins for me exactly like this: Stinging musk freshness - aggravated by pointed citrus! A little like L'eau by Serge Lutens or Muschio Bianco by Acca Kappa, both of which I already had in my collection. Acca Kappa had to leave, because his clean note got on my nerves too much in the long run, the Lutens was allowed to stay, but is rarely worn.
All the lovers of Panthea, who are now flocking together in excitement to defend their favourite: chamber, chamber! Because luckily Panthea is going through a metamorphosis on my skin, which is no less amazing than the metamorphosis from a (quite unsightly) dragonfly larva to a beautiful, dazzling, transparent, floating insect with amazing flying skills. The fragrance becomes more flowery within minutes - indefinable to me - I can't say that I really smell iris, but the powderiness that develops there would go well with it. A discreet vanilla note, fortunately from the unsweet corner, now also mixes in clearly, and below it a hint of the earthiness of Patchouli is to be guessed. It sounds a bit like a weird mess: clean musk, citrus, flowers, vanilla and patch? Is that possible? Dear ones, I can report to you: Not only does it work, it even floats! In the totality it is fairy dusty, delicately iridescent shimmering, like a dazzling dragonfly.
I find Panthea to be a rather reserved fragrance (i.e., after the first 5 minutes in which I still find it penetrating and almost unpleasant). However, it is clearly more perceptible to the surroundings, as my office test today proved. Because even hours after the application of visitors in my office, there was still commenting on what a new scent I would take out today.
But what about me and the Clean Mosque? I'm not sure yet if I can really ignore the first five minutes of the fragrance in the long run and continue to wear it. Because actually this moment of spraying on and smelling the fragrance for the first time is for me a lovingly celebrated moment of well-being and something I look forward to every day. On the other hand, the wonderful delicate scent that Panthea has turned out to be has been with me for hours now - and I am almost inclined to think that this should more than make up for the first five minutes!
PS: Short statement, according to which Panthea fortunately does NOT smell with me: sweat, shoes, muff, etc. - also not in the fine, sensitive and critical noses of my roommates!
