By Osiris, look at me! You are now a smelling butt!
Hi folks, welcome to my new fragrance commentary!
Oh yes.. my title refers to Asterix. More precisely, to Asterix conquers Rome! I'm talking about the great cartoon, I've never really seen the real films and to be honest, I'm not really interested in them either. Anyway, in this Asterix cartoon, there is a scene where a magician called Iris tries to hypnotize Asterix (and in front of him, he enchants another "patient" who thinks he is a bird afterwards).

His words "By Osiris, look at me. Look at me very hard. You're a wild boar now!" never left my mind, because I thought it was just funny. And now that this fragrance by Sylvaine Delacourte is called "Osiris", I couldn't help thinking :)
At this point I would like to thank Cinnamon Snail for this hiking package, which has given us these scents :D

Well... I'll start sniffing around. It's a pity that in reality you can't hypnotize people like in Asterix, right? Let's try it: By Osiris, look at me. Look at me firmly! From now on you only want to walk around in bikinis and underwear! ...will it work? ... no, of course not... And yes, this is a Don Juan De Cat comment, so it was clear that at least a little bit of lewd behaviour would come, right? That means you know what you've gotten yourselves into while reading this commentary, so keep reading and drop the pitchforks again... (where did you get such pitchforks anyway?? Tsss...) :D

The smell:
The fragrance begins with fresh neroli, light floral notes and an orange/mandarin scent. There's something sweet about it, although it's not yet clear exactly what it is, so I'd go for a mix of honey and jasmine.
A little later the floral scents diminish a little. The honey becomes more intense and is therefore more easily recognizable and can be smelled. But also the jasmine can now be better distinguished from the honey. Neroli remains, in addition there are now more and more softer scents such as benzoin, which make the fragrance creamy, especially with neroli.
As the fragrance progresses, the neroli becomes a little more intense, making the scent appear heavier. The sweetish notes of course remain, even if the honey in particular seems to mix with the jasmine again, which is of course not bad, as both smell good anyway. The benzoin further enhances the fragrance's creamy feel, so that the scent somehow feels soft on the skin despite its heavy appearance.
At the base, the heaviness of the fragrance diminishes a little, which is probably due to the fact that the neroli now radiates a little weaker. Also the sweet notes are a bit weaker now, but I have the feeling that it's a bit more floral, which makes the fragrance a bit stuffier for me, but you know that from me, because I'm always grumbling about floral scents, ... so as always it's possible that you like the fragrance much better :)

The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is good, but no firecracker. It will certainly not be noticed so well from a distance, but from close up it should smell good for a while. The shelf life was quite good, because the scent lasted from morning to night, the usual eight to ten hours.

The bottle! The bottle is a slightly inflated container with a thick base and is filled with a yellowish scented liquid. On the front, a black and white label shows the name of the fragrance and a plant drawing. The great thing is that this drawing is individually designed for each fragrance and also looks nice, the style is a bit similar to the labels of Diptyque. The lid is gold-plated, cylindrical and seems to be made of brushed metal. A somewhat simple-looking, yet beautiful bottle.

Conclusion:
Soo, I didn't think the smell was bad. At first I was afraid that it could become a sultry and heavy scent, because the initial floral notes seemed a bit sultry, but fortunately it didn't develop that way. Sure, the fragrance is of course quite heavy, but I don't find it so muggy or rather stuffy now. Of course it's not a fresh scent and in my opinion it belongs in winter, but there are scents that take your breath away, or at least that's how I feel, especially with some flowery women's scents (and yet I'm testing so many women's scents, just for you bikini babes... uh... for you ladies it should be called...!)

Anyway, this scent is quite nice here, but you have to like and be able to cope with an intense neroli scent to enjoy it, otherwise it's absolutely not for you. It's more suitable for the evening, as it's a little too opulent as an everyday scent.

Also, as a target group, I would focus more on older ladies,... um... more mature ladies... adult ladies? Bah, whatever I say is surely wrong... I'd rather say that the scent is not for twenty year old young girls, so it's more like maybe 30+?... uff... :D

Anyway, you can test the scent, especially if you like neroli. And that's it! I hope you have a nice evening, so see you next time :)
