Sin in autumn?
Hello you snoopers and welcome to a new fragrance description from me :)
Today I report about Majaina Sin, a fragrance from The Different Company, where I got to know the fragrance brand a few years ago thanks to a dear friend. She is totally into iris fragrances, so of course I came into contact with the fragrance "Bois d'Iris" of this brand at some point, which I would highly recommend by the way!

Since then, I've been trying out scents from TDC every now and then in case they cross my path. Well, frankly, I just can't remember where I ever saw those scents. Rather, thanks to you dear perfumas, I can get hold of these fragrances when it's time again, when you bombard me with samples and overwhelm me (does that sound like a complaint right now? Nah, now I won't get another sample... *sigh*)!

And so it's no different with Majaina Sin. If I hadn't gotten a sample of a perfume, you would have my mental effusion now (does this word sound ambiguous somehow? If yes, then you thought of exactly the same, you piggies!!) can't read here :D

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with slightly citrus notes such as bergamot, flowery citrus orange blossom, herbaceous ginger and almond-scented heliotrope. In the background there is a beautiful, light sweetness, which at first reminds of chocolate, then becomes more ambry and finally mixes with the cinnamon and maple syrup, while the scents of a chestnut gradually rise.
A little later, the sweet notes become stronger. In the scent cloud, which then rises beautifully and flatters your nose, as you sometimes say here, to express it with your words, you then smell a great mix of cinnamon, but now mixed with powdery vanilla and tonka bean. Also the chestnut becomes a little bit stronger later and conveys a nice autumnal feeling. As always, I have difficulties with orchids and therefore describe them as "a flowery scent", which I perceive more in the background, but cannot say whether these flowers really smell like orchids.
Otherwise, the fragrance becomes softer and softer, so that, as so often, the later base is mainly characterized by vanilla, which gives off its powdery and sweet fragrance, which also comes across very authentic. Of course there are also other scents like musk, cinnamon, maple syrup, amber, some woody notes and some chestnut to smell, but vanilla is the most intense scent, which remains later than the only scent. All in all, Majaina Sin is a beautiful autumn scent.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is above averagely good, so that you don't have to get too close to it to smell the scent of one or the other, because you definitely "produce" a (small) scent cloud with the scent! The shelf life is longer than ten hours. But you have to keep in mind that from half of this time on the fragrance only smells of vanilla.

The bottle:
I have always liked the TDC flacons very much. In principle, they are quite simple, since the bottle itself is simply a rectangular container, in this case with a brownish scented liquid in it. But I've always found the great, three-step and circular lids (here in white) to be very striking and made great, and from the side the flacons have always reminded me of Aztec temples, which I think are great! Yes, a very nice bottle.

As it was probably already apparent in my fragrance description, I liked this fragrance very much. It's nice and soft with great, powdery-sweet notes with an autumnal orientation and reminds us of upcoming cooler days (because of the chestnut and vanilla), but this shouldn't sound negative, because in autumn and winter you can look forward to nice paths covered with red-yellow leaves (and where children collect these leaves into a big heap to jump in... well, that's always the case in comics:D), and great events like Halloween and Christmas are approaching and you shouldn't be sad that summer is over (which can do you any good, considering how many people will moan again when the temperature rises above 30 degrees for days on end, which we still have ahead of us at the moment!). Besides, it's better to sin in autumn! No, not what you're thinking now, but chocolate eats more easily if it hasn't melted into a sticky mass in the summer heat :D

Be that as it may, the fragrance is suitable as an all-rounder, I think you can use it during the day as well as in the evening when going out, and I also think that it is actually equally suitable for both sexes. So I would definitely recommend testing it.

That's it for me again for today. I wish everyone a nice evening, then until the next time :)

Too much sugar ruins the cake
The first few seconds of Majaina Sin are intoxicating with very sweet vanilla, chestnut and a bit of citrus that hint at great things to come. Sadly things take a wrong turn immediately: every new note that makes an appearance –heliotrope, amber, tonka beans– adds a new layer of heavy, powdery sweetness. A few minutes after application the fragrance is full-on feminine gourmand, floral and cloying and just too much for my nose to take.

Even as a lover of sweet scents I have to admit this one is not for me.

Gourmandish orange, vanilla, some maple syrup & a tad powdery. Pleasantly sweet yet uneventfully tame, if not lame. Good tenacity though.
