After I found "Gris Charnel | bdk Parfums" absolutely great and also had to buy it quite quickly, I Velvet Tonka
also beautiful and Tabac Rose
well done , but not as my personal must-have felt, I was of course also very nergierig on Rouge Tuxedo, which seems to be quite popular.
I expected to like it very much.
I have to think of a sweetly intense, exotic floral body oil on opening, when it also gets skin-toned quite quickly and reminds me of a Rituals boy lotion (Sakura might be getting there because of the cherry blossom vibes), accompanied by a bright tobacco note.
In general, Rouge Smoking reminds me a lot of good skin care products like shampoo, body lotion and body oil, quite airy and delicate and pleasantly creamy.
I don't perceive the cherry per se overly clearly, but I can sense it, thinking more of cherry blossoms and artificial cherry gum, which I don't find bad in itself.
Also, it smells a bit like what the Em Eukal cherry bonbons from the drugstore taste like.
As it progresses, it gains dense sweetness, but remains true to its first impression.
Associations of the disreputable Parisian entertainment district Pigalle awakens this fragrance to my sensation not; some time ago I had a hotel room there near the neighborhood with my friend and found our hotel room quite charming and fitting; baroque vintage kitsch, lots of red plush, a whirlpool, artfully old-fashioned lamps.
Montmartre was within walking distance around the corner, the Moulin Rouge glowed red.
My friend could barely walk out the door alone without being accosted by prostitutes or offered drugs, the shop windows offered sex toys and lingerie.
Rouge Tuxedo does not reflect the frivolous, risqué and flamboyant of this neighborhood, although the history/inspiration of this perfume presents itself that way (although it does become a bit more beguiling in the drydown).
I will gladly use up the bottling and also test him further.
I had imagined him something like Café Chantant Eau de Parfum
due to some note matches and the Parisian flair that both exude (cherry, vanilla, heliotrope), but I actually favor Café Chantant Eau de Parfum
, which I find more intense, cherry powdery and expressive.
Bie water drop contact Rouge Tuxedo develops a little the sultry strong almond note of Blu Mediterraneo - Mandorlo di Sicilia
