For spring evenings... or mornings
This perfume was born the same year as me. I remember it from my teens in the early 90s, a full page ad in a magazine. I knew enough French to translate the name - In April, an evening - how poetic, inspiring... I even started to write a short story with the perfume's name as a title.

I never actually tried it until a few years ago, when I got it in a swap. I was wearing it yesterday, a sunny afternoon in late March. Hazy, sunny, springlike... warm aldehydes on a base of almost smoky cedar wood and a sweet bouquet of freesia, iris and rose. The freesia makes it slightly sweeter than many other of its genre. Oakmoss gives it a cool freshness, like a breeze in the air and soft, blue shadows growing in the sunset. Shifting notes, warm and cool at the same time, just like the weather in spring. The name is well chosen.

Both the bottle and the scent are very 70s style, the elegant side of the decade. Very feminine, and not dated at all. High quality all the way, and just as wearable today. The aldehydic, floral-woody chypres are not my top favourites in general, but En avril is among the best that I have tried within the group.

Really beautiful.

What a chypre!! It's absolutely mothproof.
I have just accepted my fragrance package from the exchange.
It opened, a beautiful plain flacon was seen.
And the scent in it first examined. Light gold shimmering and enticing.
What I smelled then inspired me. A "Edelchypre" of the special kind.
Fresh wind from "above", unsweet flowers from the "middle" and "powdery moss wood" from "below". And everything only a little delayed almost simultaneously.
And that with nuances. Sometimes clouds come up with short showers and it smells of fresh green and moss. Then again sun and flowers, again in "soon" a forest aroma, which has it in itself.
That's nothing new in itself for a fragrance.
In this case, however, something "new old", because the bottle and its contents are about 40 years old, and its aroma is still wonderful. A "living witness" from another time.
And if I may say so, without having felt their "tooth".
And absolutely "mothproof" like an impregnated fabric.
Stored dark and cool, from time to time a pump spray filled up with it, it will last another 40 years (if it is not already gone.
This "evening in April" has exactly those attributes that I like so much about scents (almost always old): Character, durability, the original ingredients and lots of fantasy....
