Wobble water as a rescue in the olfactory desert
Today I left the house completely unscented. How'd it happen? Not because I'd forgotten, but because I had an interview and got into a lot of thinking beforehand. What if one of the participants has terrible associations with my scent? The ex-girlfriend? The annoying colleague? The unbelievably stupid boss? Or an allergy to fragrances? If you think too much about details before such a conversation, then it can only end up doing nothing at all! Actually I was planning to take a bottle of a beautiful fragrance, but I totally forgot. And so, once again, my desk had to be looted - and there it looked very thin. Since all employees are allowed to help themselves to their hearts' content and I hadn't replenished for a long time, things (and I deliberately don't say fragrances!) like Kenzo World - you know, the soulful eye - and Shalimar Souffle de Parfum - a fragrance that my colleague absolutely loathes - remained. But completely in the corner, almost completely hidden, there was also a sample of "Wackelwasser dark", which I wanted to test for a long time. I really liked Wackelwasser light last summer - and so I fragranced myself extensively with his dark colleague. And - may I say it in advance - I have not regretted it. The start is not dark at all, but lemony light with a clear bergamot and a pleasantly hot peppery ginger. This spice spontaneously reminds me of the cubeb pepper, which I like to use in the kitchen. This can be done well, especially when freshly grated wood is added. In between, a little flower, a hint of spice - by the way, I find carnation rather than cardamom here - and a hint of sweetness shine through. After the top note I can't really make out anything single, more like a potpourri, a melange, a kettle of colour, a conglomeration, a mishmash, a (very pleasant) mixture. Essentially citrus, spice and wood. The dark water also jumps back and forth with me, from spicy to sweet to flowery to fresh and back again. I could imagine it actually very well for a young man and decide to let my 15 year old son take a nose of it on occasion. For me it was nice to try it out, also sometimes funny to wear, but not so that I need a whole bottle of it.
