Full of the green twelve
In Between is the fourth of five fragrances in the limited edition (and upmarket) "Vintage Spirit", and this fragrance is also worth a comment. He's even my favorite among the four.

In my opinion, the name of the fragrance, the accompanying illustration and the advertising text are all wrong tracks:

In Between means "in between" (or "in between"), but is actually rather full (good) on the green meadow. The accompanying graphic by Francois Cadière shows a mermaid standing on her fintail from behind amidst fish and aquatic plants, patting the butt of her human neighbour standing on her feet (the two seem to be waiting together at an underwater bus stop for the next bus). Whether this waiting neighbour is a man or a woman is not recognizable despite his nakedness. Aquatic or even fishy, this fragrance does not come along either.

The advertising text (translated from English by me) reads: "A fragrance that takes you back to the revolutionary unisex fragrance trend of the 90s. Fresh citric bergamot notes, aromatic and spicy notes with artemisia, coriander, Szechuan pepper, translucent-clean jasmine and musk shots" [whether "musks", the plural use of "musk", which is also a singular tantum in English, here is based on mischief in the neck or ignorance, is left open]. That's more fitting, but I hardly perceive the spicy notes here on my own; pepper and coriander might stick their toes in, but nothing more.

For me "In Between" is a clean, simple, fine beauty in a bright, bright light green. The distinct citric does not appear independently, it is firmly embedded in the dominant light green notes, as is the very delicate sweetness. You can add the adjectives "powdery" or "creamy" to the fragrance, but above all, In Between is a gentle, mild fragrance with a delicate but stimulating freshness. I almost wanted to use the epithet "dry", but that could give me the wrong idea, "In Between" is like a young, flexible, soft spring branch, maybe one with willow catkins.

Two fragrances related to the overall character (both of which I also like very much) are "Gunpowder Cologne" from the same house (but from the "Standard-Line") and "Springfield" from Harry Lehmann - Springfield is a bit heavier and more masculine, though, and Gunpowder Cologne is more sparkling and less green than this one.

From what has been said so far it becomes clear that In Between has something young girlish about it; yet it is rightly declared as unisex and absolutely wearable for a man. It is certainly the absolute opposite of wicked, and yet its light aroma has a restrained sensuality; it is really a fragrance in the full sense of the word to fall in love with.

However, the shelf life and the sillage of this fragrance are just as restrained as its sensuality and beauty. After a comparison between my pay slip and the price tag, I will not acquire this fragrance. Should I win the lottery, however, I hereby formally and bindingly announce that I will buy at least one litre of it before the opening of a men's boutique on Iceland with the Pope
