Sunny
"Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain..."
These are the opening lyrics of a famous Bobby Hebb's song I like very much.
Well, this scent could be the olfactive transposition of this hymn to lightness and happyness: It's like a "bottled sunny day", indeed.
At the first spray I smelled immediately its exotic charcter given by the coconut water, with the lightly sour apple and citruses accents.But after a few minutes its warm, sensual and feminine heart reveals all its charm: it's the frangipani flower marrying the Jasmine.The perfect balanced couple for a summer scent.
The base notes, made of amber and cedarwood with white musk accents, are only suggested.
This makes this scent very light and wearable also in the hottest days, but a little evanescent and with a quite weak sillage in comparison with the high price. Anyway, a very pleasant sunny bouquet giving good vibes to your summer days or a ray of light when it's raining outside!

Dear old Trésor, where are you?
I tested today at my favourite drugstore the reformulated perfume: the bottle was in offer and it was disposable on the shelf. I was so sure to find again a world of memories linked to the old advertisment with the Isabella Rossellini's face,but mainly to my mother and my green years: indeed, Trésor was one of her favourites scents and She wore it in every season, expecially when it was cold and she wore her fur.
I remember its very fruity bouquet , its strong alcoolic character at the first smell, giving way after a few minutes to a warmer heart and to unmistakable apricot notes.
Well, what I smelled this morning was TOTALLY DIFFERENT: a light gourmand scent, not bad, but very synthetic and without that particular fruity touch which was the true soul of the original scent.
What a disappontment! I must reveal a secret: if you want to find again the TRUE Trésor, look for a vintage bottle or, if it's too expensive, try some dupes like Wealth by Omerta. It could seem incredible , but with about 7€ you can enjoy all the original notes of this iconic scent of the early Nineties

Different twins
This one is the typical case of a flanker totally different from the original.
If Aura is "greenish", sour, "wild" and very difficult to wear (In fact, I hate it) , Aura eau sensuelle is its "different twin": sensual, warm, flowery with spicy touches, round and very feminine, a true pleasure for your nose and for your skin. Firts of all, you are involved by the almost "buttery" and creamy gardenia notes, then you perceive the musky touch, giving a certain deepness to the scent, and finally a light but very particular cinnamon accent.
the sillage is good but discrete at the same time, you can wear this scent by day as well as by night in every season. The precious multifaceted bottle is similar to the classic Aura's one, only the coulor is different: a pale green very refined. The price is high, but don't miss this pearl if you're searching a refined arm of seduction!

A walk among the clouds
Soft, warm, cocooning and sugary: this is Blue candy by Zara, one of the latest fragrances created by the brand .
Firts of all, let's look at the bottle: a china light blue squared container, quite minimal but refined. It reminds me of the air, the sky, the clouds.
In fact, if you spray the scent you are immediately involved by a soft cloud and you can "smell the sky" with sugary accents and warmer fava tonka notes. The bouquet is quite similar to the "Angel"'s one , but it's softer and lighter, less intense and perfect to be worn by day and in the good season too.
The price for this cocooning delight? absolutely affordable! About 10€ for a 100ml one size. I decied : this one will be my next gift! I cannot resit to a walk among the clouds :)

The quintessence of feminity
It' s weird that I 've seen so many times this sinuous golden bottle but I never sprayed the scent: I imagined that it could be like the other Cavalli's creations, quite good but very similar and not so longlasting or particular for my taste..
Well, a few days ago I decided to give a chance to this fragrance and a new love at first smell is born!
Warm, sweet, "Golden", sensual, oriental and extremely feminine, this jus was exactly my cup of tea!
First of all I perceived the peppery touch giving a particular character to the bouquet, but immediately I was involved by an orange blossom cloud: warm and round, not at all bitter or too vibrant, made smoother and warmer by the wonderful oriental base notes (tonka bena, benzoin and sweet but not sweetish vanilla).
the sillage is surprisingly good as well as the longevity: wearing this scent is as exciting as wearing a sexy and intriguing lingerie .The botlle too recalls this sense of "Golden sensuality" with its rounded shape and its warm colour. I feel in this scent the true "Cavalli woman", sexy and refined at the same time.
