The unknown stepbrother
This great, but unknown fresh scent of the late 80s, is m.M. wrongly past the Great Mass.
Published in 1988 and yet it smells extremely modern. No one would ever notice that it is a fragrance from the 80s, would it be launched again today.

I see parallels, so hold on tight. Nightflight Yes, exactly Sure, they smell different, but from the way they are made and how they change, they are still in the same corner to places.
Yeah, I would describe Colors as an unidentified stepbrother
Like *Nightflight*, *Colors* starts with an extremely, almost pungent fresh lemon.
And from the dry down both of them change into a warm, almost creamy vibe.
*Nightflight* creates a warm, almost cuddly almond scent from the heart note onwards.
Whereas with *Colors* it's the coconut
With *Colors* it is like having a pot of coconut milk, with a sip of lemon juice, boiled up until only a thick, creamy cream remains.
For a fragrance of 88, this has a very modern aftertaste. In addition, it can be worn, as I think, also relatively well by the warm coconut cream, in winter & autumn.
So a real all-rounder.

But unfortunately this great scent, just like *Nightflight* and *Heaven*, which I would also put in the same corner, was unfortunately discontinued :-(
It's a mystery to me why such great fragrances are simply erased, and why you don't really have an evasion to a fragrance that lives out a similar style.
In my opinion, most freshies from 2010 onwards smell 70-80% very similar to each other.
Simply a scent that sold well is analysed, here and there something is changed and/or exchanged. And lo and behold, et voilà, a new fragrance experience.
But that's debatable and I'm not going out on a limb.

If you like scents like Nightflight or Heaven, you should definitely take a look at Colors and test it. It is still available at humane prices in the bay, so it's best to buy it immediately.
A real insider tip! ;-)

Thanks for reading it LG Smellow
