Hey, guys, how you doing? Of course I hope that you are all well, because the number of infections caused by carelessness and so-called "covidiots" is increasing so much that we should all hope that all this will not get any worse... so please take good care of yourselves, OK? :)
Be that as it may, let's come to fragrances that fit well in this hot season and change the subject to more beautiful things. Scents that often smell light and loose and do not get on anybody's nerves. Fragrances that refresh. Fragrances that are so light and airy that you have the feeling you could even go up into the air. Whereby it might even be possible to feel at least a little high with this scent, because according to the scent description, hemp is also included here :D
Of course this is not on the side of Thierry Mugler. There is more talk of a fragrance that makes the senses take off and puts the sniffer in a state between dream and reality... well... if that doesn't sound mysterious :D
Especially if the fragrance listing on the Mugler site does not list all fragrance contents, but rather prefers to call some fragrances herbs, aromatic herbal fragrance chords or even (and this is not at all conspicuous) "Secret Note C" (oh, we all know that "C" only stands for, uhhh... citrus! Or coriander? Curcuma? Cannab... uhhh I meant Cacao??? :DDD).
But as long as it smells good and... uh... puts us in a good mood, that's fine! Let's have a sniff!
The fragrance begins rather citrusy at first with a very tasty tangy grapefruit and probably with a small amount of lemon, which is really refreshing. In the background, I smell slightly tart herbs, which also radiate green, but the grapefruit is still quite strong, which of course I like very much, especially in this heat!
The grapefruit also has a nice sour taste, but in a pleasant, almost creamy way, like the citrus notes in Hermès' Eau de Rhubarbe.
A little later the scent is still quite fresh and citric, even if the scent is no longer soo sparkling. I smell hemp rather less, but more herbaceous scents that remind me of sage, which by the way go well with summery, citric scents.
Much later it still smells slightly citrusy to me, at least I still smell a little grapefruit, even though the scent should not be sparkling anymore. In addition there are some herbs that cannot be determined, but they still match the citric note very well. Hemp on the other hand I somehow can't really perceive.
All in all, Fly Away is a loose, beautiful fragrance, which in the end even appears slightly creamy.
The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is really good in the beginning, because the scent seems to be quite sparkling, but then loses its power quite quickly. That's nothing unusual with such scents, so it's a pity that the scent is rather weak, but that's the way it is with most summer scents. The Sillage here is even better than with many other citric scents. The shelf life of six hours is also okay, there are fresh scents that are no longer smellable after only one hour.
The bottle! The bottle is actually quite simple for a Mugler, but it's not just rectangular. The front and back are sloped inwards and the whole thing closes with a nice, chrome-plated cap. Simple, but nice. Nice is the fragrance liquid in yellow, lined up next to each other the different fragrances of this fragrance series with their pastel-coloured fragrance liquids look especially beautiful.
Okay, so Fly Away is one of those fragrances that are quite harmless and simple, but at least it smells quite nice. It is not one of those scents that are now very fancy or special, especially for a Mugler scent, but it smells nice, is very refreshing on hot days and is also light and loose. I would also say that it is olfactorically good for a good mood.
It goes in the direction of summery scents like Escada, by which I mean: harmless and simple, but nice and sweet. Okay, only the price is much higher and this is also one of the points of criticism, as one should think twice before spending so much money on a simple and also weakly radiating scent, but this is no different with other brands.
In any case, the fragrance is well suited to spray it on hot days, and not only to refresh yourself for a short time, but also to enjoy the nice scent,... Good mood!
A test can be worthwhile, especially if you like citrus scents like grapefruit. Oh, and for the record: No, you can't get high from that smell and I don't think you can smell the hemp that well. On the other hand, I don't know much about hemp either, but I'm sure nobody believes me :D
Anyway, that's it from me again. I wish you a nice evening, please take good care of yourselves and don't get too careless. We just have to bear a little more, and have finally got over the damned plague, then you can go sniffing together again and so :)
