The ball is like his own child,
tenderly he caresses it in the wind;
a twist, he flies into it,
hard, but always very fine.
Zizou, of Algerian descent,
gives the Ă‰quipe Tricolore the approval;
makes her a world and European champion,
and his opponents promptly call the spirits.
With the royals he is the king,
because without him the Champions League is unworthy;
his volley goal in 2002 a feast for the eyes,
and brings the whole world into a frenzy with it.
ZinĂ©dine Zidane, one of the best, for many (including me) THE best footballer of all time. A virtuoso on the ball; a player, so elegant, so filigree, so fine, so noble that one had the feeling that when he touched the ball, the earth stopped...
Well, what does the dear Monsieur Zidane have to do with the Eau Soleil Blanc?
When I got my bottling a few weeks ago, I had it in front of my eyes the very first time I sprayed it.
The fragrance simply reminds me of his playing style; such a brilliant and incredibly beautiful style, as it will (probably) not be seen again in this form. And this fragrance has that noble, exquisite, beautiful glow and charm that bald-headed Zizou also exudes.
I was immediately blown away by the scent and that's always important to me; I just want to be knocked out from the start. Many people see it differently and there is often talk of "one should wear scents several times, test them etc. and give them time bla bla bla bla bla..."
Yeah, it's a matter of opinion. Personally, however, I usually only buy flacons that inspire me immediately, from which I fall into a kind of trance from the first smell on, because I can't do anything with all the other talk as mentioned above...
It was similar with my favourite player, Zizou. In 1998, World Cup final, I was a 13-year-old football enthusiast at the time, following my passion at the club, playing in the same position, wearing the same number 10 and watching the game with my dad, and after the game I said to my dad: "Dad, that bald guy, what's his name? TSI THEN or something... He's my favourite player from now on!"
My father just nodded and replied: "My son, I understand very well..."
Right at the opening you get a fat slap of fresh and minimally spicy notes on the face; this is provided by the bitter orange with bergamot and various spices, such as pink pepper or cardamom. But this wonderful floral-creamy something in the heart note makes me melt away afterwards. The floral notes of jasmine, tuberose and ylang-ylang, among others, are responsible for this, making the fragrance incredibly beguiling and seductive. With the vanilla, the base gives the whole thing that certain pleasant sweetness, which rounds off this incredible sensual fragrance great.
I placed an order for a bottle today and am so happy to have found this treasure. I used up my miniature quite quickly...
On my skin it lasts about 6h and the sillage is well visible in the first 2h. Except in midsummer I would wear it to every season and every occasion. MMn it is very universal, whether during the day or in the evening hours you can always use it.
Surely you could expect a little more endurance from a Tom Ford fragrance, but I think you can't have everything in life. Because if it were, Zizou would have crowned his incredible career in his very last compulsory game with the 2006 World Championship title...
Whether unisex, or as I have already read from many "too feminine", I don't care anyway. I always wear what I like.
This fragrance is elegant, noble, creamy, soft, slightly powdery, fresh, seductive, rich, sensual, sexy and and and and... All adjectives that can be used to describe Zizou and his handling of the ball.
An incredibly wonderful, incredibly beguiling, oriental-floral hammer scent, whose bottle also comes in my favourite "colour".
Like the royal jerseys, all white... And that "my" Zizou, just like those jerseys, would look so good...
And thanks to all of you who have read so far!
