Marie69's Perfume Reviews
The little mini bottle is really pretty and practical also. The perfume is a nuclear white flower blast, up there with best of them. Giorgio is pablumized in the wake of this silky sweet, shoulder padded Bombshell. Drying down, and sniffing tangentially and gingerly around Ground Zero, it becomes slightly more gentle, such as the difference of down scaling an encounter with a Grizzly to a Kodiak...or cutting your nails down from two inches, to one and a half inches, and repainting them Hong Kong Red in lieu of Fire Engine Red. As subtle as Imelda Marcos, this nasal burning beauty is really something.
Original 1995 Version EDT. Greens of various sorts, sweet white flowers, and cardamom, yes someone pointed that out. That is the special smell. This is a very nice light floral, uncomplicated. Classic and modern at the same time, as many 90´s creations are. This would be lovely on a young woman or older woman. It is a touch sweet for my personal taste, but a very fine creation indeed.
Well Kansas City, Missouri, may not be known as the perfume capital of anywhere, but Luzier perfumes was an influencial North American perfume house, back in the day, even if hardly known anymore. Today I have an old mini of Luzier´s Dreamy. Top white floral notes have almost gone I think, but the basenotes are most definately natural patchouli and cedarwood, and benzoin maybe or other amber.
Wow. Now this is a cologne. My goodness, it is lovely. I will search out this vintage beauty and buy it up if I can find it as I believe it is quite rare. Falcon is the house. Black pepper and lemon burst out and then something sweet, like lavender maybe, ambered spices, but so soft, leathers, civet and a touch of powder. It has a quality of 4711 but then many other elements combine. Vetiver and something sweet in the dry down, maybe a slightly smoky aspect, and then frankincense. Very refined. Classic, but also fresh for today´s young men. Women could also wear this easily. Young and older, for all.
To start with the mini bottle is so cute. The cap depicts sun, sea, birds and flowers, in a cut out design. The perfume is a lovely green color and the bottle is frosted translucent. To me, the perfume is quite evening and romantic so the scent is juxtaposed with the fresh daytime look, but that makes it all the more fun. It is a surprize. It falls between an 80´s scent and a modern scent, as many of the 90´s perfume do. It is a touch sweet for my personal taste but I think many would like this one. No dominant notes, a floral blend. Drydown more pleasant than opening for me. Couldn´t resist blending it about equal parts, with Gres- Cabochard and that is a very nice mix to me. The Xi Aeris offers a softer, fresher opening and then the Cabochard leathery powder adds a welcome crispness.
