Hmm... Green Sapphire... somehow I have to think of the name of the movie "Auf der Jagd nach dem Juwel vom Nil" with Michael Douglas, but in contrast to the first movie the movie doesn't mean a gemstone with the jewel, which you could sell as treasure and get rich. In the first film it was about a diamond, here Jewel means something completely different, but for all those who don't know these films and want to see them, I won't tell you. But they are quite funny movies :)
Anyway, a green sapphire is the theme of this fragrance here. As the previous speaker already wrote, gemstones are said to have certain powers and properties. So the green sapphire should stand as a symbol for wisdom, decency and purity. It should also give the wearer a clearer and more sheepish mind and self-control. Of course, depending on the place, the stone is said to have different properties. For Asians, sapphires are a symbol of friendship and truth. The Europeans already believe more in the power of the gem itself, whose above-mentioned properties are to be transferred to the wearer. In ancient Egypt, however, the stone was used to ward off evil spirits. And perfumes are supposed to wear it, because you have to sweat and stink less and you have to keep scents longer! :DD
Well, where I'm talking about good scents, I hope that the scent is successful, because it sounds quite interesting from the scents (whiskey, raspberry, pine etc.).
At the beginning I smell whiskey, which also smells quite oudig. I also notice raspberries, which admittedly smell quite unusual or actually even quite unusual, i.e. in combination with whiskey. But it's not bad,... it's almost as if you would tilt down these tequilla shots in different flavours with melon or raspberry and so on :D
Anyway, I also have a rather earthy note in my nose, which reminds me a little of vetiver. This fragrance is gradually becoming greener and together with woody notes it is probably the pine needles that I noticed. Now, a little later, I also smell woody notes with light oud and a little bit still whiskey, but the raspberries are almost gone again, the sweetness of the fragrance (which is rather small) comes from the violets, which also smell a little powdery. In addition, there are other green resinous, slightly austere notes, almost medical. That should be Cypriol, which smells like that, at least according to descriptions I found, because I don't know the scent. It has a certain resemblance to camphor, but the medical note here is less reminiscent of cough syrup :D
The oud becomes more and more intense over time, but in a gentle way, which is beautiful.
In the base the scent smells of oud, resinous notes, woody green scents and is still soft. Besides it is of course also quite woody and slightly earthy (like Patchouli). The fragrance is now even less sweet than at the beginning, so even the musk and amber notes can no longer "align" much. But I don't mind if a fragrance doesn't smell sweet. Here everything is beautifully coordinated, and as long as you like oudige and woody woody scents, you will also like this fragrance.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is good, so the scent is easy to smell to someone. You leave a nice fragrance cloud behind, but I didn't find it so extremely room-filling. Still an intense fragrance!
The durability is also good, even really good, because depending on how many sprayers you have indulged in, you may still be able to feel it the next morning in the sprayed place like on your arm.
The bottle is round and green, on the front you can see a golden-metallic shield with Celtic symbols or patterns, in the middle of which a real green sapphire has been embedded. The beautifully shaped lid is also gold-plated and fits well as a finish. As always, this Boadicea bottle looks simply great!
Soo... yeah, the scent's not bad. But first of all: The extremely high price is not worth this fragrance to me. Because in the end I think it's good, but it doesn't knock me off my socks that much either. He smells okay, and that's actually at any point of the scent process. It is a pity that such interesting notes as whiskey evaporate quickly and the scent begins to smell too quickly of woods and oud. I find the woody aura quite nice, but there are scents that smell better like a pine forest or something like that.
I would classify this fragrance as autumn in terms of its fragrance type. It can be used daily. Probably also for going out, but it's not a party scent, it's too unsweet or too unspectacular for that, but well suited for everyone who doesn't like sweet scents.
You can test it, but to be honest, I think you don't necessarily miss anything if you let out the scent.
Well, that's that again.
And think of the power of these gems! The next time you think your scent is totally weak and disappears quickly, just wear a sapphire in your pocket (or chain, or ring, or pendant...). Maybe it'll help if you believe in things like esotericism and all! :D
