Monday unveiling - Jolene (free interpretation)
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging you, don't take my husband. Don't take it just because you can.
You've done it, merciless.
I couldn't hold him.

The start is bitter-fruity, not light, but perfect, ripe fruits. Already from the first minute you suspect what a full-bodied smell this is.

Your beauty is incomparable. With flaming curls of chestnut brown hair, with a skin like ivory and emerald green eyes.
My beloved sons even cry in their sleep since their father left us. I can't take away their pain. I find no more words of consolation.

Jasmine is heavy and dark, like a flaming heart. Heliotrop takes him in his arms and dances on...

He talks about you in his sleep. I can't resist the tears when he calls your name.
I cry myself to sleep every night, every day I try to survive. We fight!

Your protective vanilla, big and graceful.
Your soft cashmere wood gives me confidence.

A great fragrance. A wonderful fragrance, sweet and heavy. Hardly any flowers, much to discover.
I've learned through you that I can't meet some scents. They hurt too much.
This one would flush me away, sweep me away. I look at him and admire him from afar.
He embodies merciless beauty and quite hidden lurks a subtle cold.
It's made for others. The one with the emerald eyes.
I'm glad this time is over. The scent had to go on.
There is something new to discover.

The durability is great by the way and the aura is perfect.

Fragrant women
When I comment on a women's fragrance, it was in the past mostly for nostalgic reasons, or emotional ones, or even both, because nostalgia also arouses emotions. The last fragrance for ladies that made me really enthusiastic and moved me to comment was Dior Addict and for a moment I was thinking about letting DonAlejandro de Marco Cassius de la Vega off the peg, uh leash, but I would just copy this commi. Of course it was funny trash, but that only works once.

Because Manifesto L'Elixir grabs me almost in the same way and you can say that I have a preference for wummser with heavy jasmine, tuberose, vanilla and orange blossom in women's fragrances. I liked this fragrance a long time ago when testing it in a shop.

The most beautiful thing about women's fragrances are the women who wear them, they underline their beauty, sensuality and eroticism. They are the more beautiful sex and independent of their appearance they are also lovable, empathetic and sensitive. While we men may walk past a flowering field full of sunflowers uninterested, the ladies have an eye for the beautiful things this field actually shows. Of course, this also has disadvantages sometimes when you walk past a field full of handbags or shoes, but that also has a certain kindness and shows how open the woman is for something new.

A look into the bathroom also quickly reveals whether you are in a men's household or in a relationship household. While the man has maybe 2 shower gels and uses them until they are all, the lady has about 12. Not counting shampoos. With mint, with coconut, with cocoa butter, for dry skin, for oily skin and even for combination skin. I don't know if I've ever seen a man with mixed skin before.

Now the so-called Rossmannchallenge is permanently lost. This consists of just looking and not taking anything with you that you don't already have somehow. Even if this sounds like a cliché load now and we roll our eyes in such moments, I love you for it.
I think it's amusing, because you have a sense of humor, too. There is nothing more beautiful than to make a woman laugh and if this humor is strong enough, you have a very nice time. I find you fragrant.

At first glance, Manifesto L'Elixir is a fragrance that radiates warmth, which comes nobly and gracefully around the corner. Perhaps only intended for special occasions, where you dress up and go out and show yourself to the world and yes that fits wonderfully. It underlines the femininity and lets the lady shine.
In the beginning one perceives the sweetness of a mandarin, which is immediately surrounded by jasmine. Here the fragrance begins to shoot directly at me in all imaginable synapses, before it then gets something mandelicious. It will be very hard and sweet, but just right. Tuberose makes it slightly overblown, that's the way it is, but it fits perfectly. The vanilla rounds the whole thing off and at the end it becomes a little woody. Maybe he also has a distant relationship to the Addict here, which is why I like him so much. I find this whole composition simply beautiful.

Beautiful and that's the point. Yes, the scent is certainly shiny when you go out and you look beautiful. But also on the couch with the much too big feel-good sweater and the old jogging pants the scent looks just as beautiful.
I don't wear women's fragrances, no matter how much I like them, because I wouldn't have the experience I have when the fragrance unfolds on your skin or in your hair. To experience and breathe this then is unique. It wouldn't be the same and I would rob myself of emotions.

The fragrance lasts for an eternity and its softness is best felt in autumn or winter, when it is cooler, which is ideal, because together the couch day becomes an experience. Sometimes I think women have the nicer scents than men. That may not be true and is purely subjective, because I also have scents where my heart gets Sternkes in the eyes, but I still feel many women's scents as more sensual. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. I find you fragrant.

Since I will be testing women's fragrances with my kids in the near future and have already been provided with samples by some dear perfumas, I am looking forward to perhaps discovering the next highlight soon. I would like to thank Schatzsucher for this sample and that I could get to know this scent in more detail.

Girls... I can smell you.

You bring me warmth, in the cold days of winter
Actually, I never wanted to write a comment, but this scent leaves me no choice.

Never before have I bought a perfume as fast and courageously as this one.
I sprayed it on and I was electrified.

In the top note I perceive almonds, embedded in wonderful fresh, yet warm virus aromas, which at no time appear bitter or scratchy.
Sweetness is also present, but behaves so that it only cleverly underlines the femininity of the fragrance.

Unfortunately I am not yet such an experienced nose, but the following development shows itself to me in different vanilla compositions.

After an hour the vanilla is full and deep, not dark, but powerful, still with a hint of sweetness, I think this is the influence of tuberose. The citrus aromas have now disappeared.

To finish L'Elixir becomes silky soft and incredibly cuddly, with a minimal powdery and tender vanilla.

Forgive me my exuberance, but I am in love with this wonderful winter scent.

For the Christmas market I treat myself to 3 full sprayers;), the Sillage - as already often mentioned, is wonderful and I will feel like a queen:))

Party Girl
Launched this year just in time for X-MAS shoppers (I'm thinking of men who rely on an established brand-name and who know that "Opium" would do for their mother but not for their girlfriend), "Manifesto L'Elixir" is even more opulent than the regular "Manifesto". "L'Elixir" has got strong notes of jasmine and tuberose and a very sweet vanilla-pudding base teamed with loads of ambroxan. This "new" formula is all about creating more impact with even less ideas than last year. Picture someone who wears giant jewels, power red and bubblegum pink and adores anything with too much shimmer and gloss. At work, she is neither the team player nor the boss lady, but the office party girl. Probably a modern heroine of capitalism. "Manifesto L'Elixir" tries very hard to come across as glamorous and grown-up, but my appetite for original fragrances is not in the least satisfied.
