Then and now
It's already a crux with the Internet. Basically a great invention. It makes life much easier, but can also cost a lot of money.
When I first went online in 1997 with a Telejet 14400 modem (now in the Computer Museum in Munich), the Internet cost 6 DM per hour PLUS telephone charges at AOL. After the first calculation of 250€ you can imagine that at that time the Internet was limited to the essential. One needed above all patience, since the side structure of a picture of 1MB size took a few minutes. You couldn't even make a phone call at the time, unless you had ISDN. Compared to today there wasn't so much content, but you were mostly busy waiting anyway. Or you'd chat with people on the other side of the world. I found it fascinating that someone who was sitting in his living room in Pittsburgh at the same time was talking to me about God and the world. Everything was more relaxed and less hectic.
Now at some point came DSL, a little later the Wlan and the smartphones and the offer on the Internet grew. Everything seems overloaded, hectic and you have to be careful what you say/write because some people put it on the gold scale. Today there is virtually everything, everything is covered with a monthly flat rate and costs actually only arise when you end up in a forum like here and suddenly starts to use Idealo daily to keep an eye on certain prices. You want to save money, but when I look at my collection a year ago and compare it with today, I notice that I have already spent over 1000 euros on perfume, even if I have always bought each cheaper than it would normally cost. Somehow the costs have only shifted then.
I had the Mugler Cologne on my screen since last summer. In trade it is about 55€, but it was always too expensive for me. Now I bought it for about 30€ and enjoy it. The right weather is still missing, but as soon as it gets really warm, it will be really good. It's different than the freshies I currently own. It's much greener, as the colour already says, and the bottle is also absolutely suitable, it reminds me of grass and stalks, at least in my eyes.
I can't smell the individual ingredients like that. I simply perceive it as a fresh green fragrance that reminds me of salad dressings in a positive sense. Sounds weird, but it is. I don't perceive a course, I can recognize Neroli and Petitgrain at the beginning and this also steadily, although becoming weaker.
4-5h the scent is well perceptible, which is just not long, but also normal for a fresher scent.
It also shows that as soon as Mr. Morillas leaves the pure male area, he is quite able to get something done. Yes, the whole thing may also come across as very artificial or synthetic, but with that other problems and I have less.
Who knows if I would have had the patience at that time to inform myself about this scent if I had known in advance that it was a Morillas.
Thanks to the development of the Internet, you can get information relatively quickly, get the hang of it, imagine it was 1997 and it would take an eternity for Parfumo to build up, let alone the comments on a fragrance. How big would the complaints be if the commissioners were too long, the photos too similar and the blogs had nothing to do with perfume? At that time, however, there were no users who only used their time on the Internet to find a hair in their soup and, if there was none, simply fooled them. Today, anyone who is dissatisfied with their life can simply use the Internet to compensate. It doesn't cost anything anymore and goes very fast.
I can also recommend the Mugler Cologne to these people, because it makes them a little more relaxed.
Because let's be honest...we are here because we are looking for fragrances that should embellish our time a little bit when we wear them. This is for one scent X and for the other scent Y.
The Mugler Cologne is actually rather Mugler atypical, not overloading, not eternally holding, and not obtrusive at all, so if you don't know this yet, you can dare to do it.
Basically, I think it's good to exchange information here quickly and informatively that the net has become so fixed. You'd rather spend your money on something nice than on access and waiting
