Lure out the spring sunshine!
The small lapse of the weather to play after Easter once again a little winter, can not keep me from my summer fragrances to the front to clear and at the opportunity to test through again.
Néroli Amara came to me as a bottling directly before a summer vacation at the lake and wandered untested immediately with in the luggage. On a hot and humid summer day, just before a violent thunderstorm brought cooling, I thought the hour of the fragrance had come. In anticipation of a citrus-fresh ethereal-light fragrance I sprayed not carefully on the wrist, but misted me generously.
The beginning was as I had hoped for on this stuffy day: fresh citrus notes with a distinct bergamot and a nice pinch of pepper, which I really appreciate in fragrances. And yet the components are built much more compactly than I would have liked for high summer. From the start, a certain density characterizes the fragrance, which increases over time, making it creamy. As I sought refuge from the sweltering heat on the shaded balcony, Néroli Amara became increasingly uncomfortable. The orange blossom settled around me with unanticipated vehemence like a too-dense veil, the freshness of the start a mere shadow of a memory. Only when the downwind of the thunderstorm sent the first gusts and swept away the veil, I could enjoy the fragrance again.
Since then, Néroli Amara is no longer a summer scent for me, but is gladly worn in spring - and now and then in winter on gray, wet and cold days, to evoke in my imagination the feeling of spring sunshine and the accompanying high spirits.
Like today, while the cold rain pelts the window and I, sitting at my kitchen table, delight in the bright yellow of the forsythia and daffodils in my little garden. Then it is perfect and stirs up in me the anticipation of hot summer days. The wonderful orange blossom, which is not held in check by wood, green notes or even moss, floats gently and translucent over my skin and accompanies me for hours.
A simple, graceful fragrance that perfectly stages the sweetness of orange blossom.
