Robin and Marian
The legend about the legendary hero Robin Hood and his great love Maid Marian is surely known to everyone.
But that he also loved to wear her favorite scent is probably unknown.
Her rarities were rare, since Robin Hood was constantly on the run and had to hide from Prince John's and Nottingham's sheriff's credentials. But time and time again Robin managed to get through to Marian and pay her a visit, in spite of all the imminent dangers. He could be incredibly imaginative not to be recognized. And every time he managed to escape undetected back into the forest.
Of course Maid Marian always wanted to make herself especially beautiful when she expected her Robin. She decorated her bower with particularly beautiful flowers, aroused in a beautiful incense burner the most wonderful smoke and wore a beautiful soft green robe.
Her only confidante, her valet, gave her a beautiful scent on these special, rare occasions. A fragrance that knew how to combine all her longings and her preferences for green, woody, mossy and spicy in one.
Maid Marian was very nature-conscious, but since she was under strict surveillance, she could never escape into the oh so wonderful nature to her adored Robin Hood, but could at least temporarily satisfy her longing with this even delicious fragrance.
Immediately after application, she felt deeply immersed in the cool shady forest in which Robin was hiding. The tall moss-covered majestic trees, the wonderfully spicy forest air, the beautiful flower meadow nearby, the small clear stream that she would love to sit on, all this passed her by in her mind when she enjoyed this delicious fragrance. Oh, how long has it been since she last saw each other....
Finally the moment had come, finally the beloved stood before her. Her heart was beating faster. Her beloved Robin was there, wrapped in chic green, the cheeky hat with the feather on her head, the mischievous smile that Marian loved so much.
But something was different this time. He used to greet her so gallantly... This time he pulled her to his arms and sniffed her.
"Oh, dear Marian, there's something so special about you today. You are surrounded by such a wonderful smell of nature, forest, precious resin. Say, what is this?"
"Dear Robin, since our reunions are unfortunately so rare and yet I often yearn so much for you and for the beloved forest, my dear and faithful valet has prepared a precious fragrance that can temporarily quench this longing"
With these words Marian handed her Robin the bottle. Robin immediately took a deep breath and a blissful smile conjured up in his face.
He applied a few drops of this wonderful fragrance and said: "Oh how wonderful, oh how blessed I am! This fragrance not only dresses my dear Marian, but me too! This knowledge unites us, and our love for our forest only closer!"
"Beloved Robin, I can only agree with you. It smells wonderfully delicious with you, even if harsher, spicier and less floral than with me. I'll ask my valet to make a bottle of this wonderful essence for you, too."
"Thank you very much, my love! I couldn't be happier."
And so Marian and Robin became even closer to each other. No.19 contributed with its special kind quite certainly to it ;-)
(The plot was freely invented and lacks any historical basis. Nevertheless I would like to add that No.19 from Chanel is quite suitable for the Robins. It is green, spicy, with floral aspects, but not overly feminine, slightly tart and creamy and has an unbelievably good hold and exudes a certain erotic attraction, which is not superficial and cheap, but subtle and mysterious.
Dear Angelliese, I hope you won't be angry when I have taken your wonderful statement as inspiration and knitted a little bit further...)
