Sea trees in a safe (scented) harbour
In the course of our first year of life, we begin to detach ourselves from the originally symbiotic closeness to our caregiver in the smallest of steps, by making short explorations into the initially nearer and then increasingly farther surroundings.
After these excursions into our environment we return to the "safe haven". We make physical or at least eye contact with our reference person and can relax in the familiar surroundings and process what we have experienced.

This interplay of what I call 'comfort and stretch zone continues throughout our lives Without constantly breaking new ground and facing new challenges, no development takes place and without a familiar and safe comfort zone there is no relaxation.

What does this have to do with "My Muse"?
The thought came to my mind that in my olfactory socialisation and my "olfactory behaviour" there is also this interplay between the familiar and the comfortable on the one hand and the new, sometimes demanding on the other hand.

Starting with vanilla scents, followed by sweet rose scents, I gradually ventured into scent areas that were quite experimental for me. So also scents have found their way into my collection, which do not fit every day, for which I have to be in a special mood and which demand my attention for a long time.

Probably this is also an explanation for the fact that after some satisfied time with my fine collection I always look for something new. Driven to the extreme, this striving for the unknown can sometimes even result in a blind purchase.
So there are fragrances that challenge me in a certain way (positively) and those that bring me more to myself.

"My Muse" clearly meets the criteria of a "safe haven of scent" for me, you can guess it.
He was described in the thoroughly benevolent statements as "unagitated, colourless, tensionless and already known". JAAA, that's exactly how he is and that's exactly right in this case.
Nothing foreign irritates my nose here, no tension between competing components demands my attention and there is no disturbance that wants to be circumnavigated before I get to the fragrance.
The fragrance drops anchor directly in the bay of my inner peace and muse, leads to arriving at myself, to simply being and feeling good.
Although I too immediately had the feeling of familiarity, I can't think of a direct scent twin. So it is probably more a hint of a familiar feeling than the certainty of dealing with the familiar.

"My Muse" starts with a minimal dose of aldehydes, just enough to give me an orientation in the sense of "huhu, here I am".
Immediately afterwards, an enveloping cocoon of fragrance envelops me. Delicately interwoven are discreet blossoms of slightly sweet and fruity roses. Violet and jasmine, which are listed in the pyramid, I would not have named, but they are already present in the fragrance tissue. The violet is by no means dry-dusty or nostalgic and the jasmine is absolutely not Indolic or smelly. I would have rather tipped for iris and a small lily of the valley. Whatever exactly the flowers are still there, it means that it is not a clear rose scent or an opulent floral scent.

A hint of powdery cinnamon, almonds and a fine resin note give a discreetly spicy oriental topping. The whole thing is underlaid with a creamy vanilla and musk rug.

This wonderful fragrance immediately unfolds its full aroma and does not change much in the course of time. Nevertheless, I never get bored with it, which is perhaps due to the fact that 'sometimes one note, sometimes another note comes to the fore a bit more, without being impertinent.
I can simply fall into this fragrance and let my soul dangle. However, it is not a cuddly scent in the classic sense, which is better enjoyed alone on the sofa at home. For me it is a creamy, elegant scent that I can perform well and thus take a piece of "safe haven" with me when I face the demands of everyday life.

Durability and sillage are very ok for me. I can perceive the scent for hours and hours myself.
The flacon is valuable with a finely dosable sprayer. It is slightly gold-iridescent and semi opaque and not as khaki green as the pictures suggest
I got to test "My Muse" some time ago in the form of a sample from a dear perfuma. Since then, I've been putting out my feelers for it, but it doesn't seem to be so easy to obtain in Europe.
Thanks to a perfume here, which obviously also offers other amado fragrances at a very fair price in the souk, I finally found what I was looking for and am now the happy owner of a bottle including a "mobile safe fragrance harbour".

Fine elegant scent of a true lady
The first finely spraying fog hits my sensitive nasal nerves, something very gentle and incredibly noble emerges from this beautiful bottle. A cloud of delicate rose, elegant violet with cinnamon powder lets me inhale very deeply. This is a successful pairing that lets its own life merge skilfully. This fragrance almost emerges from the elf kingdom so softly and gently enveloping it touches my scent soul. I've seldom smelled anything so beautiful and reservedly elegant. He enters the next phase - heliotrope, vanilla, amber and musk make him the tender play of my dreamy hours and let my imagination go on journeys. What remains is an invisible, finely woven scented dress that surrounds me and accompanies my day like a protective coat. In the night he tells of the gentle touches and caresses - what a magical delicious perfume. Come to me, I invite you, stay with me...
He is very body-hugging, not a loud and space-consuming candidate, no, he is distinguished-reserved, just like a lady with fine manners and well used words that never hurt . One must always look at this lady and would like to assure this subtle being of my friendship forever. A very special fragrance for a perhaps magical being that enchants us all .... a muse that inspires us.

Strange
that there is no comment or statement yet about this fine and exclusive powder scent.

Shortly to Mr. Provenzano, he is also a "nose,," and has e.g. made 9 scents for penhaligons. This year ( 2019 ) also the Fantasia Marmaid for Anna Sui, in the wonderful bottle and 1 new fragrance Moccus for Boadica the Victorius and a few more. So is known here.
Now he also has his own fragrances, as do many other wonderful perfumers. Under his name and under the label Amato.

So now, this fine powder scent is not too dusty, like many other powder scents. E.g. complexion de Neige, but rather in the creamy direction.
And also goes through some changes, which most others don't do.

Cinnamon and jasmine are only subtle, not intrusive, perceptible, so they only flash at the beginning.

The basis are light heliotrope and delicate violet with this tick rose ( something similar to Parisien Rose of Poirey ) so only the delicate creamy rose, which are perfectly matched to each other.

Benzoe and vanilla give the fragrance the deep that other powder fragrances don't have, that's the fine and exclusive difference, for me at least.

Musk only shows up at the end, at the end. I haven't experienced that yet, with a powder scent and I like that, makes the scent interesting and extraordinary.
I can't sniff Amber out, which doesn't have to be.
It lasts most of the day, so a good eight hours. Men can also wear it, because it changes again and again.

I can't describe the scent in any other way and others can also do it with pleasure when a hiking package goes on a journey soon, with other scents from Mr. Provenzano.
