When the days took on colour
In the past, when there were only three television stations, they were accompanied by a clear number of programme guides. My weekdays, by the way, have practically the same colours as the "Hörzu" to this day: Monday is yellow, Tuesday green, Wednesday blue etc
In the Hörzu, the actual entry was always written in smaller letters under the actual entry when a feature film had already been broadcast. With older or reliably popular films like "Pillow Talk" this could be a quite impressive series of dates. Maybe the increasing space requirement in the annual cycle had forced the end of this strange custom sometime.

If there were a list of other scents of the Em-eukal candies of the wild cherry variety, I would spontaneously include two names: the Lucas plant 'Black Gemstone' and 'Une Nuit à Bali - Suma Oriental', although I can no longer check either, because the corresponding specimens have long since been distorted. And also in this case a single test has to be sufficient, the sample tube (many thanks to Ergoproxy!) only gave out a tiny droplet.

These sweets are underlaid with cowhide leather oud after about half an hour. Aha - a quite extravagant composition. Soon the oud note comes across so rough and leathery (it even says hello to 'Epic Man') that one might think of a somewhat over-exaggerated, yet not un-original variation of the raspberry-leather-idea.

A hint of heliotropic bitter-mandy-like sweetness gradually dissolves the sweetness before our em-eukal receives reinforcement within two hours: of morello cherries from the glass - sour is that. In the further course of the morning the... "fruit" takes over a more reserved, simpler sweetness (vanilla above all, almond if you like). The calming effect is good. The development is supported by a certain reduction in content to a sweet leathery texture with a hint of candy, with patchouli cocoa. This doesn't seem as contrived as before, the abundance of information is fortunately misleading in this respect.

As I progress, I get a little carried away. A distant memory of the older fruit from 'Red Hoba' by XerJoff comes to mind and the cherry theme remains present. From the afternoon on, a softly oiled sweetness is whispering silently, maybe a somewhat lame "Finishing Part 1", which is essentially over after eight hours. After all, there is - unfortunately, apparently only as a bouncer - a carpet of dark musk, softly fructified sweet and sweet like candy, as a conclusion of part 2 until the evening. Nice! The rearmost end or part 3 is musk on a rest of vanilla.

Conclusion: On balance appealing, but not completely my construction site.

Different tastes
That one caught my interest with the red bottle and because it sounded like a grown up LPRN - any version....
So I bought it spontaneously on a stroll through Zurich and never regretted. The feedback is promising: Citrus and woods, lovely fruity, nice vanilla. The longevity is really good.
A lot of people around me like that smell. If not overdone. That can get pretty unpleasant, especially in the beginning, smelling like red fruit jelly ("Rote Grütze" in German) - a bit to sweet.
The beginning, like in "all" the crazy packaged Lucas perfumes is way more complex and interesting than most of the heart and the longlasting base. Obviously he likes to start with a blast but not confuse the wearer and his surrounding with ongoing change.

The different reviews on Fragrantica.com and Parfumo.de surprised me. The reviews on Parfumo were mostly positive, not necessarily enthusiastic (erotic, mysterious, interesting), but few opinions went lower than "okay, nice" while the Fragrantica-crowd seemed to be either puzzled (rotten fruits) or disgusted, one review stating that Qom Chilom reeks like a wino.
In fact, it's supposed to invision a waterpipe. Not a brothel, not an old Persian city, not a rotten fruit. And maybe, just maybe, waterpipes are more appealing to European noses, since they are geographically and culture wise a little bit closer to this tradition then someone from the other side of the Atlantic?

Anyway, it's one of my favourites. Not to pleasant and not to experimental. Definitely worth a try!

Sour cherry, which becomes soon bitter and woody. Somewhat reminiscent of cherry tobacco, packed in plastic, with more fruit than tobacco.
