Enough with the silliness and enough with the corny talk.
It is truly time I adapt and really reach every reader with my analysis.
It cannot be that I waste precious time with nonsense and therefore I think I have now found a way to describe a perfume with all its facets. There won't be anything to complain about.
That's how we'll start now.
I picked a fragrance that many know, but do you really know it?
Now let's start all over again and look at it, this bottle. A glass cylinder. Yes Glass.
Glass is an amorphous substance produced by melting. The production of glass is also possible by heating sol-gel and by shock waves. Thermodynamically, glass is referred to as a frozen, supercooled liquid. This definition applies to all substances that are melted and cooled down correspondingly quickly. This means that although crystal nuclei form when the melt solidifies into glass, there is not enough time for the crystallization process. The solidifying glass is solid too quickly to allow the building blocks to be rearranged into a crystal. To put it simply, the atomic structure of a glass corresponds roughly to that of a liquid. The transformation range, i.e. the transition range between melt and solid, is around 600 °C for many glass types.
But I digress.
Beautiful bottle, then.
Let us now come to the fragrance, let us wet our skin once and start directly with the top note.
I find him already distinguished and flagrant.
Cardamom in Spanish also called Cardamomo, in Chinese also called ts'ao-k'ou gives men's perfumes freshness and a colorful, radiant nuance. Here it is generously and opulently ostentatiously effective.
The start of the heart note is immediately available. The increase of linalool makes it spicier.
Linalool is a component of many essential oils. It is found in coriander, hops, nutmeg, ginger, savory, cinnamon, basil, marjoram, thyme, oregano, black pepper, saffron, cannabis and other spice plants. Methylheptenone is ethinylated for synthesis. The resulting dehydrolinalool is reduced to linalool by partial hydrogenation. This synthesis was first succeeded by Leopold Ruzicka and Virgilio Fornasir in 1919.
But I digress.
In addition, another substance starts its property, the so-called limonene. Laymen speak here of lemons or bergamots.
You might think it's very arbitrary, but it actually gets fresh and pleasant. Not artificial and also not disparate I would like to note here.
With the time and the increase of Geraniol it becomes somewhat sweet. Geraniol is an acyclic monoterpene allyl alcohol and is in (E,Z)-isomeric relation to nerol: Geraniol is the (E)-isomer, nerol the (Z)-isomer. As a floral note it is a component of many perfumes. Geraniol is an intermediate product in the production of geranyl esters, citronellol and citral.
But this only by the way.
The highlight of the whole is the increase of ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE. The α-Isomethylionon is available in its pure form and under normal conditions as a clear, colourless to yellowish, water-insoluble, violet-scented liquid which is synthetically produced.
Now we have reached the base note. I don't see much change anymore. I find it very appealing.
It is not klandestin that this fragrance does not last very long, but we do not want to be larmoyant here.
Maybe I was a little bit meticulous here, but it was important to me to stay prosaic.
It is important for me to stay stringent and not sibylline. I am not a renegade or sacrosanct person, that was very important to me to tell.
Thank you very much, sir.
