Ceaseless red wonder
When you are staying in front of a supermarket shelf, while wondering, how is possible to put 300% fruit in one bottle of marmalade (of course you find it out sooner or later), that is the same feeling as wondering, how was that tremendous tons of flowers put into this black bottle.

ALAMEDA could be even offensive, if the surface of the fragrance would not be so smooth. The scent is consistent and strong. Consistent...? Even compact.

This beauty is sweet with an overtone of bitterness, soft and ladylike, caramell without being gourmand even for a second, at the end, behind the courtain the patchouli shows itself, but only to make ALAMEDA more flowery, deep and warm.

Do you like orange blossom? Alameda is for you.
Do you like feminine/flowery fragrances? Alameda is for you.
Do you like exuberant and uncompromising perfumes? Alameda is for you.

It is not recommended for a fan of light, girlish scents, for people who dislike when a perfume wants to be stronger than them, and definitely for people who want to hide in the crowd.

Wear it proudly, elegantly, with straight back. Or do as 5desierto5 mentioned in her wonderful review, sit at home, drink a mug of hot chocolate and sink into the depth of good feelings.

90% for longevity, 90% for sillage, 90% for scent. I dislike the bottle, because can’t see, where is the level of the liquid inside.

Powdery flowers
I would gladly take a bath in ORTENSIA, despite the fact, that my small sample almost took away my mood for testing. It seemed to be a lotion sample in a tiny, piteous pouch, that should never carry noble liquids.

The pyramid begins with innocent, powdery flowers, the whole impression is very young and bright. Later on a certain kind of waxy background erases the youth feeling, but the fragrance is still kind. Warm, elegant and gentle.

On the second day of testing a fade of powder still lasts for a few hours.

I think people who liked Kiss Me Tender or Montblanc perfumes, will also like ORTENSIA.

Don't be shy!
From burn coal to pink flowers and back to sugary asphalt... quite a long way, isn’t it?

Give SUCRE D’ÉBENE enough time. At first bite it bites back. Roasted caramel, brown sugar, dark and heavy odor is the beginning. Later on a ton of flowers oppresses the olfactory. The narcotic sweetness remembers me to the Harujuku style, it is definitely too much, too pink, too intensive, but I still like it. At the end I get a sugary and roasted asphalt, and am still fond of it.

I respectfully say thank you to Huitieme Art and Pierre Guillaume for being enough brave to create such an exaggerated scent, that is
- strong
- lasts long
- funny to imagine it on men
- and resembles to Love (Don’t be shy) by Kilian.

Shady and upholding
Incense and amber, what else do we need for happiness? They work wonderful together, melt smoothly, without complications or extra decoration of subsidiary notes.

AMBER WOOD is old, dark, shady and beautiful. It is not too sweet, rather woody-smoky, encouraging, upholder scent. However incense is indicated in head, it lasts till the beginning of base, but later amber is stronger.
Black Label – it fits for luxury products, I really appreciate the dignity that is eradiated by AMBER WOOD in general.

Neon lights
Verbena + fig leaf, in a perfect combo! Promised in the name, given in the fragrance. A 100% achievement!

VERVEINE FIGUIER is a cute, strong, unisex, joyful perfume. It radiates a carefree aura. The phenomenal scent gets later even better, with more spices mixed with a smooth creamy background.

About the base: have you ever experienced a two storey perfume? Downstairs sits some lemon, vibrant as neon lights, above it by half or one meter there is a very strong fig.

Fresh fragrances are usually far from my taste, but VERVEINE FIGUIER is just gorgeous.
