Kirké vs. Erba Pura - Rumble in the Fruitjungle
Moin you dear Parfumos and Parfumas,

today we come to the duel of two fragrances that could hardly be more similar and yet - so much in advance - have enough differences to justify that you need both. (Sees my wife, by the way, differently, but what does she know) // (Honey, if you read this...you're right, of course, I love you and remain fair - you also use both ;-P) It's about Erba Pura, which already lives a little with me. And his, here as the most frequently listed "fragrance twin" Kirké from the house of Terenzi.

Already the whole last week I have eagerly awaited its arrival. Saturday morning then in the DHL status was finally the redeeming statement "In delivery". Okay, mail is ALWAYS between 14:00 and 15:00 with us on Saturday. It is 12.30 o'clock, so we go fast to the beverage market. 13.00 o'clock then arrived at the home mailbox I open it and see......a yellow note. This can't be true!!! Okay, calm down, let's have a look first, he must have left it with the neighbour. Yes, he must have left it with that nice Mrs. Schmidt, who always accepts packages. She's always at home. The poor old lady can't walk properly. I ought to leave some chocolates at her door again.......

And then I see it, ready for collection at the DHL branch from 12.00 on Tuesday. FROM TUESDAY!!!! My weekend was over. An hour later, my wife (clearly amused because of my dejected mood) and I arrived at the supermarket. And that's when I see him. The delivery man. My wife knew what was coming. "Honey, wait...!" But I was already not listening to her at all and ran to the mail van. Completely out of breath, I panted out my last name and street address to the delivery man. An hour later, happy again, I sat in front of my package like a little boy on Christmas Eve and opened it. My wife says I have a problem. I don't know what she means. But it doesn't matter, let's get started.

Kirké vs. Erba Pura
The bottle: Kirké 9/10 - Erba Pura 9/10

Both get a 9 from me
From the packaging to the weight of the bottle, the processing to the sprayer are both in no way inferior to each other and are excellently processed and both look incredibly chic. But both get a point deduction because the fill level is not to be recognized.

The fragrance: Kirké 8.5/10 - Erba Pura 8 ,5/10

Let's give in to the scent progression and start with the Kirké.

The fragrance starts off breathtaking. The top note is just insane and completely knocked my socks off. An incredibly tingly pear, peach and passion fruit surround you and you feel like you're in a fruit basket. This "tingle" that almost reminds you of champagne, gives the fruit basket a certain effervescence. Of course, a little synthetic resonates here, but for me it does not always have to be organic fruit. The fruit basket is also not completely sweetened by the currant. The acidity of the black berry does the whole thing here seht good. The aroma starts off strong - but gets lighter and lighter, which suits it incredibly well. And after a short while a few flowers come through, discreetly and not disturbing. These remain at the party until the end. The fragrance trail is really great through the base in persona vanilla, sandalwood and especially the musk and it all complements each other. Nothing disturbs. Great fragrance!
Erba Pura

Here the start is already a completely different. Directly to the start, the fragrance starts with a good dose of citrus. And how he starts. Already after a few seconds you can recognize the heart of this fragrance, the bulging fruit basket and you immediately feel what a powerful fragrance you are exposed here. So please everyone. If you are testing this for the first time, leave it at one spray for now. Because even though this is a fruity scent, and fruity always suggests a bit of lightness, what you have here is actually a real monster of strength and power. So beware. :-) the fruit basket consists, at least to my nose, of Caribbean fruits. Mango, passion fruit, white peaches. Great stuff. But again, for all its praise, you can't deny the scent a certain synthetic quality. But again, totally okay and almost to be expected with the license. Especially the conclusion of the fragrance is then but again quite different from the Kirké. Because this fragrance says goodbye vanillig-holzig. The base is an absolute dream.

Durability: Kirké 9/10 - Erba Pura 10/10

The Kirké holds out 9 hours, on the clothes even longer. But he is not enough to the Erba Pura. The holds with three sprays also 15 hours without problems. THE powerhouse among the fruit fragrances!

Sillage: Kirké 9/10 - Erba Pura 10/10

The Kirké is the first 4-5 hours very present, but then becomes much more skin.

Again, the Erba Pura the clear winner. I can only give a 10/10, because the thing radiates for hours and floods rooms. Unbelievable.

Wearability: Kirké 9/10 Erba Pura 7/10

And here comes the great strength of the Kirké and the reason why his H/S has quite advantages. Because this fragrance goes almost always and everywhere. This is not possible with the Erba Pura. For the office (especially in summer) unsuitable but by this brutal sillage also generally no candidate for Ü25 degrees. Since the Kirké has the nose in front.

Both fragrances are 100% unisex by the way!!!

Compliments: Kirké 9/10 Erba Pura 8/10

I can only speak about my wife and my work colleagues - and here the Kirké has the nose quite easily in front. O-Ton of a colleague:

"It smells like that other one, the strong one you have - but nicer."

But you'll get compliments with both if you use the right dosage - guaranteed.

Price/Performance: Kirké 8/10 Erba Pura 7/10

Yes decide for yourself. In my case 95,00€ vs. 180,00€ for 100ml. Both worth their money without question, but of course the Kirké wins since he is only half as expensive.

Conclusion:

The Kirké has a hell of a top note and I like it better than the Erba Pura to start with. In the heart they are both absolute fruit grenades and in the base then the Erba has easily the nose in front. The Kirké is generally also a little more floral than the Erba, which develops very nice woody towards the end.

Who is looking for a H / S monster should reach for the Erba, but with the awareness that the applicability is thereby more limited. Power have however both. Only that the Erba Pura is here again significantly stronger, especially in terms of sillage.

All in all, both are really great and in the end it is a matter of taste (or the fragrance religion) that decides here.

I personally put due to the lower price, the dream top note and the better applicability quite narrowly the Kirké on the one.

I hope you all had a happy Easter. I had one, as my daughter spent an hour beaming as she scoured the residential neighborhood. Oh yeah, and I intercepted the package delivery guy outside the supermarket. Yes, Easter was good. :-)

Hanseatic greetings⚓

First not known, now not beatable
This is my first comment about a niche fragrance, which I had to rate here, because I think that it is wrong with some ratings, even if you can't argue about tastes.

So it happened that I went to the Vollmar in Bonn, a beautiful Ladeb with old pharmacist inventory, in short: It has real charm and a mega selection of niche fragrances of all selections, mainstream niche as well as niche niche.
I was thinking of testing Molecule 01 from Geza Schön. Had they sold the last one that day - great. So I tested myself a little, uninterested. Went from Aqua di Parma's Fico di Amalfi to Creed's new Aventus Cologne to various Jo Malones'. Scented houses that I all knew and knew well.
I have to say that I'm a bit sceptical about fragrances and don't know their origin, Creator. Suddenly a smiling woman came up to me and said bluntly: "I think he would suit you well." You don't hear it too rarely, but since I was about to leave anyway, I thought, "Let's give the scent a chance."
She sprayed two blasts on my arm without telling me what it was. I waited briefly, smelled, wow very very sweet! Away, poor again, still mega cute. There was a picture in my head of freshly showered. So I don't buy expensive perfume for this. I said goodbye without asking for the name of the brew and went for a stroll in the city.
Meanwhile the sweetness flew into my nose again and again, which slowly flattened out and became rounder and also did not seem too feminine but was somehow sexy, RESPONSIBILITY! Not woody smoky fresh sexy, but sweet, sweet, fruity berry sexy! Quite different from a pushy Erba Pura Xerjoff Sospiro (who is just disgusting among us, sorry my opinion).

So off again to Vollmar and scooped from the birds. What's the name of the fragrance and, above all, who is it from???
Smiling, the lady looked at me and told me a little story about Tiziana Terenzi and her origin, from a small family business which had made candles primarily for churches, even the Vatican.
I really like traditional houses and family businesses a lot. Nevertheless sceptical, since I heard the first time about Tiziana Terenzi at that time (shame on my head!), I bought the love elixir, which really enchants my environment, like Circe himself did back then. The salesgirl gave me another 20%. The day was saved, Molecules 01 forgot and I happy.

The scent brought me to Parfumo, I researched more and more. And wow! I can't get out of the amazement. I like scents that project, but at some point cling to me, that's exactly what Kirke does for me! Is nevertheless present for 10 hours, but not at all intrusive, but always a little sweet under the nose where I can only indulge ...
Meanwhile I have ordered some bottlings of other Terenzis here at SOUK from very nice members, so much Kirke has flashed me.

Finally a little more factual.

100ml Extrait de Parfum for Terenzis prices absolute top price performance ratio.
Fragrance is unisex, many have arranged him to the female side, but find him even more wearable as a man! The fragrance is really appealing and durable and Sillshe 1a! It doesn't have much development, but becomes rounder after about 30 minutes and from then on it says: ENJOY!

Today I caught myself smelling ten times on the T-shirt of the day before, put it back again and again, then smelled it again. High addiction factor!

Fruity Smasher
Now once again a comment on a fragrance by Tiziana Terenzi, a brand that I appreciate very much. A fragrance I already own a few months and I do not regret it at all. The Terenzis are really not cheap, but these extrait de parfums are often worth every penny. This one is still one of the cheaper ones, as there are also fragrances over 500 euros with this brand. This one costs around 170 euros, as this range is a bit cheaper. Slammed on a 30% promotion, so it didn't cost much more than a designer. And I have to say, this one is worth every penny, especially thanks to Beastmode performance. This brand just puts a lot of emphasis on performance, the rest is a matter of taste.

The bottle is a looker, like all of this brand. Big lids, heavy massive bottles. Just looks like luxury. Perfect, if then also the content is right.
Like all fragrances from Terenzi, this fragrance is declared as a unisex fragrance. I find great when everyone can decide for themselves. Could you theoretically wear even with fragrances of the opposite sex, but many (especially men) often lack the courage. With high-quality niche fragrances is much possible. Many fragrances of this brand drift slightly into the feminine, but are still unisex if it fits the type. You can also read here that Kirke is rather feminine. Would have to choose between the two certainly, but this cliché thinking is not for me and rather boring. He seems to be very popular with men at almost 75% male owners and high fame on Instagram. Like I said, no one should be talked into this.
Kirke has his own charm I think. Kirke has a very neat touch. Should one but still definitely test, especially as a gentleman. For the typical image of an established man is not, but very stylish, well-groomed, unique and already a little funky. Also for ladies, of course, a great choice, because sweet-fruity fragrances on ladies always come good and ensures a well-groomed appearance. The Erba Pura I find but still a little more feminine, which goes in a similar direction and is rightly Duftzwilling.
Kirke is not a complex fragrance, but still smells thoroughly high-quality and luxurious. This fruity touch smells roughly like high-end hair shampoo. It conveys that well-groomed touch without being too staid. Thus, rather less recommended for a staid outfit. In addition, a fragrance that does not have too much progression. The top note of various fruits stays extremely long and the DNA changes very little. Pear, peach and passion fruit. A great trio which harmonizes great together and smells really unique. Musk comes in quite early and offers a great counter component. The base becomes really soft and rather ordinary. Until one has arrived at the pure base, however, it takes many many hours.
I am surprised by some statements about mediocre or poor performance. For me, Kirke is one of the fragrances with the best performance. Already Beastmode, especially with the sillage. Already two sprays are extremely violently perceptible. Also the durability is super with double-digit hours. Already world class, especially since it is from the fragrance type not necessarily a heavy fragrance.

Kirke is always portable. In everyday life, to go out, etc. In closed small rooms you should dose this but sparingly due to really good sillage.

A fragrance that I can put especially younger people to the heart. Just a great DNA that stands out and most will like and also get the one or other compliment.

Smelling you makes people feel good.
The scent starts off like a fruity fruit basket, super yummy and fruity. If you love fruity scents, this one is perfect!
I wore it yesterday for the first time, got into the car of nem colleague, he smelled in the air and said "what is this perfume?" I thought first ohje, is that now positive or negative? Before I could say anything he continued "that smells really good" and his look looked like he was enjoying it. I told him it was called Kirke, he asked again "what's it called?" then I said I'll write it down for you so you can look at it later. Wrote it down for him and yes I still smelled the perfume on me all legal evening.
The next day I wore it again, it had been on since 6:45, and at about 1pm, over 6std later, another colleague said, "what is that perfume?" Whenever people walk past you they get this scent, and it makes you feel good right away when you smell it". This comment is also what my review is named after, a rather interesting compliment that I will remember.

So the scent lasts super long, after 6h the sillage can still be smelled when walking by, and the scent is liked by virtually everyone, it has no unpleasant notes, and I don't think anyone would mind smelling this scent, on the contrary. Most seem to find it very pleasant to smell this fruity fragrance.

Ugh, yuck... get out!
I've never been a fan of peach iced tea, I'm sick of it after half a glass. Just like I don't like clothes that smell of dripping, intense detergent. How did I get Kirké? Like many of you, through Erba Pura. I tested Erba Pura at our Beauty & Hair Salon in Ingolstadt (one of two niche perfumeries). It was sprayed on a paper towel. It was a bomb, it smelled for 3 weeks in my jacket in the closet. That was too much for me. Do I really want to smell so?

Kirké I wanted to test, because I do not dislike Erba Pura in itself, but this synthetic peach detergent note is just too dominant for me. Like Erba Pura, Kirké lolls in the finest peach synthetics, constantly across the entire fragrance pyramid. This seems to be the USP that Kirké wants to bring to the fore. All other notes have to surrender to this synthetic, find space in the suffocating room full of plastic.
I can't even see Kirké as an evolution of Erba Pura, I would have just wished away that annoying synthetic note!

A notable development Kirké does not go through, a pity actually, could have been almost only better. Kirké is, however, a little calmer in the sillage, possibly also a little tangier in the top note and also has something subliminally aquatic. I got this aquatic or "watery" subtly on the nose throughout. But aquatic, powdery, synthetic, fruity? This combination does not fit together for me.

But at least beschte synthetic quality - you have to let both brands. 1a! Who drives on the exact synthetic described by me off, happy to report!

Thanks to Saschispatz with the sample and the fragrance experience.

Fructis shampoo mixed with the scent of fruit gummy candies, sweet fruity and annoyingly synthetic. More suitable for casual situations.
