From spicy woody to soap and back again.
I really like the first phase of this fragrance. Beautiful warm woody with some citric and oriental hints and neat flowers. Jasmine rose iris, fits so far.
But then a truck full of green-white striped Fa soap from the '90s comes and knocks everything down.
This soap note lasts several hours and certainly has her friends here, too.
Only, with the bottle and the start I had not expected that at all - oriental, flowery: yes. Soapy lily of the valley leg: no.
The same funny "swimming pool" note that bothered me with Vanderbilt and Chloé is also in here. I'd like to know exactly what that is. An aldehyde? It's not going to be chlorine.
This second phase of Varensia spreads an incredibly aggressive, clean-soapy freshness that I unfortunately don't like at all.
After approx. 5-6 hours the scent calms down again and becomes mildly patchouli-woody. Phew, done. Anyway, it's an exciting fragrance. The durability is also not bad.
No matter what's up there, if there's no (synthetic) lily of the valley in there, I'll eat a broom.

Get it for the bottle, not what's inside
Varensia is extremely pleasant on, and it wears like a light oriental on me. I sense the oakmoss but it's not brash or loud. Varensia just doesn't have the presence of a chypre on my skin.

I've seen here (and elsewhere) that Varensia is inspired by Gianni Versace by Versace. I can't make the comparison. But I can say that Varensia is not in the style of a big 1980s powerhouse, aggressive scent. Rather, Varensia is an agreeable, pleasant scent. It lasts 4 hours or so on me. First 2 hours are good, the next 2 hours are muddy & murky. Best in warm (but not hot) weather, I think.
