A Meadow Spotted with Daisies!
XPEC is the brand of the gifted British perfumer Shirley Brody. For me, especially the perfumes of the Trinity series reflect on things typically English. Both scents can evolve impressions of landscape as they come very close to olfactory experiences to be made in the countryside.

Trinity 1 is a straight away grassy and mossy perfume. The grass note is dominating and without much development, and this lawn is spotted with lots of buttercups, daisies and dandelions. Sitting on a lawn and picking those tiny little flowers presumably is part of lots of peoples' childhood memories. Small as they are, they do have a scent!

Grassy notes and florals – of course, d'Orsay's wonderful Tilleul comes to our mind. The daisy-like scent of Trinity 1 has some resemblance to that linden fragrance from France. But whereas the French way of dealing with that theme results in an overly amiable fragrance clearly on the feminine side, Shirley Brody has included enough acerbity to make Trinity 1 appeal to both genders. And it is the acerbity that gives us pictures of a rather English landscape, not French. Whereas d'Orsay shows us a sunny green with the means of olfactory opulence, XPEC's lean Trinity 1 provokes pictures of a meadow that has just been soaked by a decent rain shower – and only some scarce sunbeams make all those wonderful scents evaporate into the air.

Trinity 1 is really beautiful, and we should praise the perfumer for coming so close to nature's scents. Although I like it, I do not wear Trinity 1 too often. Personally, I want my perfumes to be a little bit artificial. My idea is that a perfume should point at the wearer, not away from him. But this is the case with fragrances that exactly copy olfactory experiences from nature. Beautiful imaginations of daisies and dandelions might lead peoples' attention astray, and this is not suitable for all situations. Trinity 1 is IMHO not to be used in office!

I very much recommend Trinity 1 to all those perfumistas who want their perfume as close as possible to beautiful impressions from nature. So, what about a few days off in the Cotswolds?
