Is that Deja Vu?
If I haven't introduced this fragrance recently, I'm sure you'll ask yourselves!
If you really should ask yourself this, then I know that you really weren't paying attention here! :D ... or that you forget everything I write here in two minutes... *sigh*
Anyway, I actually introduced you to the Soleil Blanc the other day. Here comes the Eau de Soleil Blanc. This is a somewhat fresher variant of the Soleil Blanc, as the normal Soleil Blanc may not be too wearable on hot summer days and only in small doses, but the scent is actually a bit too humid and therefore also very exhausting, especially because of the Ylang-Ylangs, and therefore rather autumnal. The eau, on the other hand, might be more portable... we'll see.
The Eau Soleil starts actually fresher in contrast to the normal Blanc, as one can smell here slightly bitter orange notes. Before the fragrance becomes more flowery-sweetish, a pistachio comes to you quite well, which gives off a beautiful, nutty fragrance, but unfortunately does not last long.
The bitter but beautiful orange peels can be smelled for a short while before the fragrance gradually becomes warmer and creamier.
Little by little I smell out the flowery notes. The jasmine smells as always nice and sweetish, whereas the normal Soleil had a slightly sweeter smell. The Ylang-Ylang is a flowery note, which I unfortunately don't like so much, because it makes the fragrance heavier and more sultry for me and therefore takes away the initial freshness of the fragrance. The orange peels become weaker and weaker at first and finally turn into orange blossoms, although these are generally weak. In the base, however, one seems to smell the bitter orange peels a little better again, even if the fragrance is no longer fresher as a result.
What I miss a little about the fragrance here is the beautiful, resinous benzoic note, without which the fragrance looks less warm (and therefore slightly fresher), but has a nice scent less.
The Ylang-Ylang seems to radiate a little less intensively in the base than in the Soleil Blanc, which makes the fragrance appear less sultry and therefore slightly fresher than the Soleil Blanc. Of course, the fragrance is not called "Eau" for nothing :D
However, I do not feel this fragrance as a pure summer fragrance here either.
Sillage and shelf life:
The radiation is okay at the beginning, but it gets a bit weaker with time, so that it is mainly mediocre and cannot be smelled over longer distances. And I would also say that the Sillage is a bit weaker than the Soleil Blanc.
Once applied, it remains on the skin for at least eight hours, if not more. Most of the time, however, he has a weaker Sillage.
The bottle is basically the same as the Soleil Blanc bottle. It has a column shape, whereby the uppermost area of the column, the so-called capital, represents the lid here. This bottle is also white, but the glass looks like frosted glass and is therefore transparent. All in all a beautiful bottle.
Soo, the biggest difference between the two fragrances is probably in the top note, as it starts here much fresher and slightly more citrus through the orange peels, while the other fragrance had started immediately floral-sweetish. The ylang-ylang in particular makes the fragrance more feminine than unisex for me, although this feeling was stronger with the Soleil Blanc.
Although you can still smell light orange peels in the base and the fragrance is generally (slightly) fresher, the fragrance is quite similar to the Soleil Blanc, so you should consider carefully whether the few differences are sufficient to reach for the fragrance if you already own the Soleil Blanc. In my opinion, the purchase is not worth it.
The bigger question, however, is which fragrance to choose if you don't have either of them yet, but want to have one of them. Well, then I would say the following: If you like it a little heavier and flowery-sweeter and want to smell a nice, powdery, resinous fragrance (benzoin) in the course of the fragrance, this or that should reach for the Soleil Blanc, which you could also use as an all-rounder.
If you like bitter-scented orange peels and want to loosen the scent a bit (Ylang-Ylang smells a little less intense here), you should choose this scent, which comes across a little less creamy than the other scent and also has a slightly lower sillage. But on warmer days it is a bit more usable than the other fragrance.
Either way, both fragrances are successful, as long as you don't have a great dislike for a slightly muggier fragrance. Therefore a "look" is worthwhile in any case.
Oh and I hope you're not crying right now because of the fucked up Germany game :D
After all, it has happened quite often that Germany screwed up a game in the preliminary round, but I bet you all your "Habe-I" lists here that Germany will make it to the semi-finals at least! Want to bet? D
Oh yes, scents with coriander and so I do not accept but :DD
