Lasciatemi cantare
At the moment I stroll around a lot in my collections and my own folders - you don't treat yourself to anything else!
Some forgotten treasures come to light, which are actually lying unjustly in their containers.
I used to rummage around in the little bag with the miniatures from time to time and appreciate one or the other fragrance with a commentary; in the meantime I had really forgotten it and only dedicated myself to the newcomers.

Wrongly so, as Cantate by Yves Rocher shows.
This Eau de Toilette is a child of its time and therefore also immediately present in this concentration.
Here no quiet, preparatory introduction sounds; no, "Cantate" goes immediately into the full!
A Gianna Nannini of fragrances, I'd almost like to say.
But that doesn't have to scare us, on the contrary!

My miniature protected its contents so well that it is unchanged: I can bathe in this fragrance experience and sing with it in competition. (Good thing they can't hear us!)
Yes, the mid-nineties really weren't puristic; why should they also?
That came later, just like the unisex scents.

Here woman is still woman and "Cantate" presents immediately an opulent bouquet of flowers: bound from iris, jasmine and wonderful fragrant roses.
They offer a beautiful sight: rich dark red roses with seemingly velvety petals nestle against the proud iris swords and everything is bound in the leaf green of the large-eyed jasmine.
The blossoms of which are not to be missed: they are there!
That's how it smells - noble summer flowers meet here!
They are followed and immediately lovingly embraced by warm kitchen spices (I recognize cloves and a hint of nutmeg), which meet with cinnamon.
Should there still be a pinch of pepper? Here in I am not quite sure, but do not want to exclude that.
They take the spicy osmanthus blossom into their centre and form an aromatic scent with the flowery welcome, which flatters us women and pleases men at us.
Tonka bean also trumps here; vanilla almost sinks in the wake of the goddess of love.
This shakes itself however only briefly and lolls itself afterwards temptingly on a smell camp from erotic sandalwood and the very popular cedar.
Thus the smooth vanilla reminds of the slightly provocative Venus, which of course should not be missing from this sensual and feminine scent song.
I almost expect to see Pan with his flute hiding nearby to sing one of his songs.
Well, my friend: show yourself when you're there!

For a few hours "Cantate" accompanies me very consciously; not loudly roaring, but nevertheless well audible and perceptible.
A shy creature does not float beside me: it shines and laughs and sings!
The wide summer skirt swings in the dance - a lively fragrance beauty has developed.
So I guess the best choice here is to say with Toto Cutugno: "Lascatemi cantare ..."

Rural and moral autumn scent
The kids had been playing outside all day. Had rusted in mountains of colorful foliage and collected particularly beautiful autumn leaves. Now fog lies over forest and field. It's gotten chilly. Now you like to be at home in the warmth. With scented candle, hot tea, nuts and the first gingerbread of the season. The cat has made herself comfortable on her lap. You relax with classical music from old instruments. A cello enchants the evening with sounds of sweet heaviness. Everything is harmonious. Dignified countrystyle with dark leather, pictures of noble horses on the walls.
All this is Cantate. And much more. Jumping happiness above all, as it also shows up in the swinging PVC closure, which always reminds me of a veil in the wind.
I can only imagine this fragrance in autumn.
The lush sweetness is there from the beginning. However, the flowers - iris, jasmine and rose - do not appear individually in front of the curtain. Her performance's too short for that. It quickly becomes spicy. The intense sweetness remains, but smells more and more like sandalwood. It warms on cool autumn days.
A typical Yves Rocher. Pleasing, graceful and discreet. The whole sweetness also lasts surprisingly long.
The fragrance does not undergo great changes. It is not particularly complex or sophisticated. He doesn't want to be. He orients himself towards his target group: the nice, young woman next door, well-groomed, mostly in a good mood and without airs and graces. I imagine them more in the countryside. She probably has small children, two maybe. She likes to bake at Christmas and is popular in the neighborhood.
The oriental fragrance is as sweet as the woman for whom it was created, but nothing special to remember.
The rest of the perfume is still in the bottle. I'm spraying some of it on. Yeah, I remember that. This is Cantate. But today this scent seems too sweet to me. Much too cute. It's a spicy sweetness I wouldn't call flowery. Finally, the sandalwood takes everything. Even the vanilla is lost in the woody spice mixture.
Okay, the eau de toilette is now almost 20 years old and is - rightly - no longer produced. Meanwhile there are other "autumn scents" that are more exciting, contain more exciting scents and score with a varied change.
What remains is nostalgia at best. I wouldn't buy that scent today. Somehow he doesn't fit into our time anymore in his good contemplation. Probably - no, certainly even - my demands on a perfume have also risen. Cantate would be just too stuffy, too cute, too old-fashioned for me right now. An Oriental who has lost his way to the countryside - that can't go well ...
