The rush of an extinct fire...
...made of birch wood on lush green. That's black citrus for me. Makes you wonder, where's Citrus? And what is Black about it? We'll get to Citrus, but it's much later. At the beginning there is fresh green, not at all intensive smoke, nothing burns, there is no campfire or anything else. Vilhelm and his Nordmannen have long since moved on, the trail is cold. This reminiscence of blazing fire, that's Black Citrus at the beginning. You have to like this cold smoke, how it mixes with fresh cut green, a kind of green smoke That can't have been it...and so you sniff and sniff and smell the citric acid very delicately. Gently and quietly she signals, I am there too. The fragrance gets one facet richer but not better. This is very subjective, because I close well below the general rating.
For me, the fragrance radiates what I symbolically see in front of me and what I have torn at the top. An empty fireplace next to a clearing in the forest. Remnants of the nightly rest of the previous day, an isolated deer explores the fireplace and what remains of the perhaps rustling feast. A fading memory that keeps on fading. A lone rider watches the decline of this scenery, the picture turns grey and dissolves immediately, the last sounds of the trombone fade away in the distance.
Black Citrus reminds me of this although the scent is intense in its own way and can be perceived for a long time

Turmtreffer left, I surrender
It's my birthday today. I'm gonna be a year old. One year as a member and gourmet of Parfumo. During this time, not only has my account balance been constantly reduced, but my self-control has often been put to the test. She'd lost most of the time. I would like to dedicate my birthday comment to Black Citrus.

I came across this scent through detours. I was travelling between two appointments in downtown Hamburg. I was interested in the bottle and the fragrance description of Invasion Barbare by MDCI, so I visited the perfumery in the passage of the same name. Unfortunately, they don't carry this brand there. But since I had been there before, I rummaged around a bit and admired the large selection in this shop. In the meantime, the nice salesgirl in the net inquired about the invasion barbarian and came back to me after a few minutes to show me scents that went in the same direction. That's not very businesslike, but also very obliging, as I mean.

She then presented me a scent of Vilhelm Parfumerie (whose name I unfortunately forgot). In any case, the scent was not quite mine, because it smelled very much like herbs. Only then did she present the Black Citrus to me. And that was a direct hit! As I once wrote in a statement, I immediately thought of an extremely smoky Aventus, or rather of an Amouage with a very high proportion of freshness. I believe that I am a great friend of birch (birch tar), because for me this is the dominant fragrance nuance in Black Citrus.
In the course of the fragrance development BC approaches a little to Noir Anthracite by Tom Ford, but without appearing so insanely aggressive and dominant. I would call him - once again - (yes, I often associate fragrances in such a direction, but I have a weakness for this direction) a manager's perfume. Because BC appears dominant, is not reserved and certainly not quiet. It remains nevertheless pleasant for its environment and does not hit so completely on the K...., uh, is not as bad as Noir Anthracite.
In my opinion it can be worn all year round and even at high temperatures it would still work.

The price is with 210 EUR for 100 ml already quite high. That was a bit of a bonus for me for a spontaneous purchase. As luck would have it, one day later we had a pretty well filled bottle in our souk for an absolutely fair price and the vicious circle started (Paypal/bad conscience/DHL/bad conscience and anticipation/addiction satisfaction)
A great, special and noble scent, which meets my taste so something of.

Fun fact on the side: The lady in the perfumery said that Vilhelm Parfumerie made its bottles out of whsiky glasses. What I like as a whisky enthusiast.

Thank you for reading and a nice third Advent.
