Suddenly Fragrances - Summer Shine - Lidl

Suddenly Fragrances - Summer Shine Can something smell like sunshine?
Of course, something can smell of sunshine! But the sun itself doesn’t have a smell or, if it does, we can’t get a scent. So what we are left with is the “smell” of the outside air. And this is where the story gets interesting...

G. Bellini - Deep An Officer and a Gentleman
Like all other LIDL fragrances, Deep is also inspired by a trendy fragrance, this time the most controversial fragrance released in the last decade: "Bleu de Chanel (Eau de Toilette) | Chanel". It comes in that deep blue square glass bowl...

One of the most powdery cedar accords I've had in my collection, miserably discontinued. It was a compliment getter, uncommon, captivating.

It is one of the few perfumes with which you can sit in the sun with peace of mind, has a late 80s vibe, classy yet oriental, dense, creamy.
Shine Shine - Azzaro - 14 days ago
It reminds me of the time you just walked on the beach. The smell of sunscreen, mineral sand, scorching sun on the skin, and the salty sea.

Away from the OG, it's a lot of vibes with Guess 1981 Indigo for Men. I get the mineral fig, the milky coconut, and the dusty iris

It’s a subtly gentlemanly type of scent. Slightly woody, it has more of a sharp and fresh spicy flavour to it. Inspired by Blue de Chanel.

Montsouris and Baccarat Rouge 540 are in the same ballpark as the sugary and gourmand accords, very interchangeable though not identical.

I could be wrong, but I think Place Dauphine and Kenzo Pour Homme are on the same level with marine chords, much identical to one another.
Citrus opening, with creamy myrrh that oozes, followed by suede and resinous accords. The woody balmy backbone is astonishing! Oh, Epinette!
Harsh grapefruit, more bitter than sweet, with shades of peppery and leathery accords, herbal, dry, slightly fumy and woody. Out of the blue!
It seems cheerful and smells like dry summer grass, abundant in fruity notes, with aquatic flowers on a powdery, woody, and mossy carpet.

ElysiumSketches of Andalusia, Catalonia, and Madrid
Spain is big, bigger than Italy, and the variety of landscapes, foods, people and things to see can certainly compete with that of our country. And then, on your journey through the Spanish regions, you soon discover that in Catalonia they eat different foods from those of Andalusia, or that the music of Galicia differs from...

ElysiumWhat Is Essential Is Invisible To The Eye
What matters is not the steps you take or the shoes you use, but the footprints you leave. In recent months I have often thought about essential in our days and our lives. Going for a walk, especially for relatively long periods, one discovers the fundamental value of essentiality, which means carrying only what is necessary,...

Ah, now I see the similar areas with BDC. Yes, BDC definitely has some spicy facets to it. Funny how strong the sense of smell is with finding connections, isnt it? ;)

Caro Gian Luca,
Il 2021 è stato un anno di incontri e giochi con i profumi solo a casa.
Che nel 2022 possiamo annusare i profumi ovunque vogliamo.
Buon Natale!

Ciao Gian, Thank you for your report with the 3 Avenues - I'm really glad you found them enjoyable :) I myself haven't tried any other than Night and NYC yet (Night got a review, NYC was fresh-modern floral, pleasant enough) but am curious about the other ones, too. I have the feeling the 5th Av. line really may be not too much and neat in a good way. Would love to hear your opinion on further ones!
Stay safe you too, and have a good weekend. Anessa

Hi Elysium, I just saw your comment to my review. Thanks a lot. Luckily, Zoologist allows me to combine my love for animals with some inspirational storytelling that comes to my mind when smelling the scents. Victor's fragrances are the most fun to review.

Ciao Elysium, grazie per il tuo commento per la mia recensione di 5th Av. Night. Adesso mi sento responsabile, ma spero che il profumo ti piacerà :)

Hey Elysium, Thank you for reading and your comment under mine's of 5th Avenue :) I hope you'll find it was worth testing, Sparkling White Diamonds may even be more interesting for you.

Ever since I was young, I have always loved to smell great. Cologne head all the way. Now that I am older I still love going to the mall or local shops to smell the latest fragrances. Always looking to make my collection of scents larger :)

Hello Elysium, Thank you very much for your reading and your kind comment on my blog article! I myself do not always write affirmatively about a scent if it left negative impression - frustration, incompatibility - especially failed blind purchases w/o testing opportunity, relying on praising reviews by other people; I then try to add my experience hoping to spare anyone else that might repeat the same mistake I did, only because no one else mentioned anything else than positive things. Still, I try to honestly describe and explain why I perceived something differently and what I personally did not like about it (there are few exceptions like some very low quality "dupes" that really just smelt of chemical liquid). I appreciate reviews sharing sincere feelings and thoughts, as you said, (the same for everything else in life) and find that is what makes a review valuable and authentic. With best wishes to you, Anessa
