Shall we have another drink?
Finally the package is there. I sit in the living room on the couch, next to me my husband.
"Look how beautiful," I say to him. I devoutly hold out the bottle's packaging to him and he nods casually. I celebrate the opening by slowly pulling the loop on the side. Little by little, the bottle comes to light, shining out of the dark velvet bed in its golden yellow. Carefully I take out the small glass bottle, cradle it in my hands, look at it from all sides. Then I hold it out to my husband:" Here, take a look at how precious this feels. Really heavy." My husband takes the scent, weighs it in his hand, nods, and hands it back to me.
Hmph A little disappointed because my enthusiasm is only tersely shared, I pull the cap off the bottle and spray once on my forearm.
I sniff, look at my husband and suddenly I have his full attention.
Me: "Do you know what that smells like?"
He: "You know what that reminds me of?"
Me: "It smells like that liquor after dinner at the restaurant."
My enthusiasm is really dampened now. I wave my arm, hoping for the drydown. Do I want to smell like warm Yulishka liqueur? I'd rather not. In Croatian restaurants known for their hearty and rich food, you often get this liqueur warmed after your meal. When I smell a scent, do I want to be reminded of my overstuffed belly and unbuttoned pants because the portion was so big and my eyes were bigger than my stomach? Um, no!
I'll stop with the arm waving, tidy up a bit. The outer packaging of the online store, the foil, a little bit here a little bit there before I put my nose back to my forearm.
Lucky me, it's developing. The warm fruit liqueur fades into the background. The fruity remains, but the alcoholic, fermented disappears. Add to that the cloves and some smoke. Yes, I like this much better already. A little later the vanilla joins in and I can also perceive something slightly woody. Even better, so he can stay and so he also remains.
Now I'm curious how he behaves in the spring or summer. According to hearsay, he should be wearable throughout the year. I will test it, because Dolce Amalfi pleases and the fragrance stays with me. And every time I when I apply him I will think of Julischka and then ask myself whether I can tolerate another .... another sprayer
