My fragrance collection is actually quite summery and citrusy, a little green, sometimes tart. I like classic colognes and anything that conveys a dignified freshness. Lyn Harris seems to appeal to me, rugged cliffs in Portugal with a view of the sea, clear air.

Finding a fragrance for the colder months of the year has therefore proved to be a bit of an undertaking. Companions who ultimately had to move on included Dior Homme Intense (2011), almost classic, but somehow too tiring for me in the end, Vanagloria, love at first sight, but only for a few months and Iris Malikhân. The latter was quite similar to Dior, a little less rough, but after a while almost as tiring due to its syrupy persistence.

I also need air to breathe at some point. Subtlety is more important to me in perfumes than mega longevity and sillage. Especially as I wouldn't necessarily describe sprayed-on lips with bold make-up and huge eyelashes as timelessly beautiful or aesthetic.

As the majority of common winter fragrances are too strong for me, my enjoyment of fragrances has been severely stunted recently, apart from a few splashes of Neroli to remind me of warmer days. Until I came across this fragrance in a small perfumery in a small town. At first, a leather accord that is completely unisex and neither particularly pithy nor overly creamy. And it fades quite quickly, which I think is a good thing, because otherwise it would probably get on my nerves. Instead, a pleasantly restrained vanilla emerges more and more, which is not as sweet as some others. Everything is framed by a citrusy veil that is reminiscent of Opsis in its silkiness.

For me, this is an ideal winter fragrance. Warming, never too sweet, with a longevity that lasts throughout the day, becomes very skin-deep at the end and never overwhelms me or others. The combination of leather and vanilla with bergamot does not create an inky accord for me, but it is an interesting twist that rounds off the perfume and ends my search for the time being. Until a new winter fragrance introduces itself to me.

A few metal shavings in the rum barrel
This is the first perfume with the fragrance ink that I have tested and must say I am pleasantly surprised. Could not quite imagine how that probably smells in a perfume water, but I imagined it in any case "difficult" and did not think that something like that appeals to me. But it does. At least in this fragrance. I wouldn't have recognized ink as such if I hadn't read it. To me it smells kind of woody and a tiny bit metallic, which doesn't bother me. Also, the scent has a pleasant light sweetness to it. An interesting scent for my nose, since I had never smelled similar before. Actually, the fragrance remains after 10min as it is then, only that it becomes a little softer later. That makes certainly the musk, which comes here quite "fragrance-neutral" therefore. Le Messager has for me also boozy vibes, so in the direction of Pirates` Grand Reserve by Atkinson, only that the latter smells much more spiritual and sweet. I can not say much more about the EdP. I find the fragrance to be medium strong. It is quite simple, but has something unusual and attractive about it. Yes, I like it.
