There are scents that immediately trigger stories in my head. From wild to sensual, cheerful to thoughtful and from short to long, everything is there.
Then there are scents, I just "see" the scent. Its notes, its molecules and its character "Byzantium" from "Tesori d'Oriente" is such a fragrance. No matter how hard I think about it, I could shake the one sleeve energetically first, then the other, no story will fall out.
For me, that means writing in a more relaxed way for the time being. Because when the stories go off in my head, I can hardly keep up with writing. Everything is fully automatic and put in a trance until the very end. Then... phew... what was that...?!
With this gem here, I can write down my scent impressions in a focused and relaxed way at the same time
After the first spray, you are greeted by a marzipan, somehow cinnamon-caramel cloud, which is so warm and dense that at first you cannot perceive anything else. The mimosa likes to dance along, holds itself back for my perception and fortunately so that neither my stomach nor my head sounds an alarm. Almost at the same time it becomes slightly rosier but more vanilla. A mixture that becomes even denser and takes over everything nearby. For me it's an absolute oh-experience with joy-shock, because the individual notes and finally combined, although very opulent, result in a wonderfully delicious and gourmand fragrance story. Now the fragrance becomes darker, more mystical and in the course of time still very balsamic and creamy. A kind of fragrance I can imagine that it can be (too) exhausting for some people. You have to be able to tolerate a certain sweetness, which is not sugar-watt sweet or syrupy sweet, but still goes in that direction. The balsamic notes add a little bittersweet twist that turns the final step to cotton candy or sugar cubes away. Somehow the fragrance also evokes an association with a caramel to medium chocolate sun cream, rather thick and without glittering particles, but which almost feels like a delicious sauce on the skin and increases in intensity with the warmth of the sun. So there really is a clearly perceptible cocoa note, which additionally confirms the brownish colour in my "nose cinema". A wonderful scent, studded with many small scent stones, which all together finally result in a dreamlike delicious scent. A picture with mosaic stones, assorted colours and perfectly laid out, as it can be found on the otherwise modest bottle. A composition that appears both very tasty and "edible", but at the same time is again simply "only" gourmand and fine. Your own skin chemistry will decide whether you become more or less of a biter.
It is undisputed, however, that with "Byzantium" a fragrance has succeeded that is able to sweeten cloudy hours and warm up cold days. Because of the sun cream wrap, I would even trust it to last through the summer, if you are modest. The thing that does not suit the scent and the environment the best is a too high dosage. This is of course true for almost all scented waters, but if one contains so many naturally sweet and sweetened elements, it can be really tedious.
Less is once again more.
If you take this to heart, then you will be rewarded with many, fantastically delicious and happy scent impulses, as if you were in the middle of an oriental candyshop.
