Flowerpot on a metal tray
So Granada, Spain. Must be hot, a bit crowded, mixing something historical and new together. Of course it must be also vivid.
I tested first the fragrance itself, now that I have begun writing this review, I took a look at the town on the Internet, and it is hard to describe, how unfathomably differs the impressiveness of the place and the fragrance.
GRANADA – first pops out melon from the crowd of interesting notes. LIAISONS DANGEREUSES (Kilian) is the nearest simile to the nice and strong heliotrope of the heart. Molten vanille. If one made a nuclear reactor from vanille and it would burnt out, I bet it would have the same pretentious scent. I fell in love, and after that... jasmine kicks in. I almost scrub that agressive flower down, but something weird happens.
A metallic note cuts down the buds of the jasmine, all the tiny-shiny innocent flowers with the evil and strangling odor, and the whole creature smells like a bunch of flower on hot metal. After the ribald opening, GRANADA settles down, the lush girl turns to be a lady. The cold night is overlying on the town after the hot daytime. Being fond of metallic scents - that is a perfect base for me.
GRANADA is for you, if you
- like heat;
- are girl of woman (of any age);
- like sweet perfumes;
- can wear jasmine and strong fragrances;
- look for adventures;
- are not afraid of metallic notes.
GRANADA is not for you, if you
- like perfumes with citrus;
- are boy or man (of any age);
- like fruitty perfumes, something that is easy to wear;
- tested Liaisons Dangereuses, and disliked it;
- are searching a perfume for daily wear or for business occasions;
- think that metals should stay in the kitchen, and must not occupy your fragrance wardrobe.
