Awaken the full woman in you!

First of all, thank you Can for letting me get to know this great fragrance.
Well, Marieposa and Can have already put it poetically and erotically into beautiful words. I wouldn't want to top that either.
Nevertheless, this Diego awakens the full woman in you. How should you imagine full women? Like a shot-putter from the Olympic team? No. Like one of those blow-up dolls from an island dating show? With atomic silicone breasts, inflated lips and the IQ of a squeaky duck. Who no longer knows which parts of her were of natural origin. Nope! Or those felt wearers with eyebrows like Schulze's giant moustache, who think a bra is a slingshot and a mascara is a Japanese car brand? Definitely not.
The term "woman" should not have a negative connotation here. "Guys" are also allowed to wear it.
Full women have both feet on the ground, wear a work suit with the same grandeur as an evening dress, have their own opinion, express it, but also know when to hold their tongue.
Diego can't be worn half-heartedly and then slurp off a comment like that. You're more likely to melt away here. And believe me, I'm not so easily impressed anymore.
Actually, I can't even begin to describe this work of art, it's so complex and multi-faceted.
Ripe citrus fruits roll by, but only as sorbet. Foam, with a slight sweetness. A sea or more of flowers and all the ones I like! Iris powder, violet sweetness and no, I can't categorize them all. Beguiling, intoxicating. Somehow otherworldly!
Cream, musk, coked shavings of sandalwood. And there is always a hint of subtle sweetness. Powder!
Now what? A negligee is needed. Lace from Plauen! Not black, not white! Purple, emerald green or midnight blue. The slipper hero in the flannel pyjamas will make eyes. Your all14 days Tralalus is getting lively again!
Discontinued! Unfortunately, the beautiful ones sometimes die early. But Diego reminds me of other beauties who are even a bit similar. The "Anonimo Veneziano"
from Nobile 1942 or "Love, the Kay to Live". A hint of Poison, without the oomph. A somewhat surrealistic, animalistic dissolution of the 80s fragrances by Dali.
The bottle. I wonder what kind of derangement the flacon designer has fallen victim to? Such a beautiful fragrance in a bottle that looks like a toilet duck on the run. Perhaps he also wanted nobody to buy Diego so that he could have more for himself. We will never know.

Tainted Dreams
She probably just wants to close her eyes for a moment. Those eyes with whose gaze she can silence an entire room. As cool as porcelain, her upper arm touches the smooth fabric of your shirt, and although she lets her head sink onto your shoulder, you feel that residual tension in her neck that rarely leaves her completely. Barely noticeable, she watches under her lashes the cab's journey through the urban canyons, the trails of light gliding across the seats in a steady rhythm, wrapping around your limbs like an invisible ribbon, connecting you. You let your lips hover a few millimeters above her hair. Like a white-gold fan, it has spread over your shoulder. And yet you dare not kiss the crown of her head as a slight tug spreads through your chest, quickening your heartbeat.
She's bent her legs, slipped her heels out of her pumps just a little, and her skirt has slipped that fatal bit too far up, so that it no longer hides the place where her perlon stockings merge into the waistband. You know the down puff she uses to dust just a hint of powder on her thighs so the stockings don't leave welts. You know her as well as the purple outline that blossoms a few inches up her leg.
With the image in your mind comes the scent. Or was it the other way around? But how to describe the smell of Perlon on powdered skin? The steady motion with which the breaths lift and lower the contour of her chest in the drifting light? The relaxed posture in which her hand sank to the seat? The shine of the perfect ovals of her nails that now gleam so innocently and whose traces you could still read on your back ... The delicate glow of the fine skin on her neck ... The hint of a perfume she might have applied early that morning, that might or might not be No5, that has melted into her cool skin. No matter how hard you concentrate, you see the slight quiver of her lips. You know she's not asleep.

**

I like musky scents, I even like smelling them a lot, as long as they are not too laundry clean. However, there is actually always something that is foreign to me and dims my need to wear these scents myself. Either I perceive them too strongly or not at all, they are too clean or too encroaching for me - and when everything is right, I miss this little contradiction to which my attention can attach and which makes the fragrance interesting for me.
Diego Dalla Palma is different in this respect: here, a classic chypre structure is touched upon but not fully executed, floating ghostly in space so that it is hard to ignore, and yet remains so vague that it cannot be deciphered with an analytical mind. It's no secret that I have a bit of a soft spot for chypre scents and obviously, like here, I'm quite happy to be led around by the nose by them. But that is not all.
Within this structure, I think I perceive a hint of No5, which probably results from the iris powder-dusted Chanel triad of jasmine, rose and ylang-ylang, which is also listed here. But even these contours are ambiguous in a way that makes you want to trace them. I wonder if Marylin Monroe's sheets smelled like this in the morning, if she really wore just a few drops of No5 to sleep
The classical references are here, however, only decorative accessories for the musk that dominates the fragrance from beginning to end and just like Can, I also perceive the smell of perlon stockings here, although I'm not so sure if there's really a woman's leg in it. The slightly smoky musk in Diego Dalla Palma reminds me strongly of the smell when you open a pack of Wolford stockings - the unkitschy ones with the smooth waistband, although I assume that the ones with the toe might smell the same.

Too bad that this fragrance has been discontinued for far too long and is actually no longer to be found. Since I will probably have to do without a musk fragrance in my collection in the future.

Many dear thanks that I was allowed to get to know this so peculiar as beguiling fragrance, dear Pollita and dear Can777 !

Painted with beauty...!
How does a sensitive-aesthetic and artistic person memorialize femininity? Each of these aesthetes saw femininity differently. A Lagerfeld,a Yves Saint Laurent,a Montana or a Valentino? All of these greats have made a monument to feminine beauty in their careers. And many more! It is difficult to describe a woman,..even very! They are as unpredictable,dazzling,colorful and multifaceted as a color palette. But if you pour all the colors of the palette together, there is always a deep black. Unfathomable and unspeakably fascinating! Diego Dalla Palma has seen the femininity every day of his life.He,one of the greatest makeup artists of his time. He has perfected what can not be made more perfect. He had brought out the best in every female face. The eyes,the mouth,the cheekbones. Yes even the aura and the soul. Diego Dalla Palma dusted beauty with color. It was his gift and profession. He also gave and gave female beauty a perfume. What he gave to men, I know too well. I wear his masculine signature. But this is another story. What Diego gave to women is another story. Let's write it down...!

Diego Dalla Palma by Diego Dalla Palma.....
Not everything that seems harmless is also so! Let's take as an example a pink mantis or the very famous femme fatal. No,no,...the perfume is not for young women. That much should be said. I personally see it more on mature women. Unless one is a Lolita. Then it could fit. Possibly? Musk dominates here. But not the softened,purified and sterilized musk as so popular today. There is animalic,coarse-grained and smoky-soapy musk here. The way it really smells. Probably one of the purest and realest of its kind. Soapy, rough and strongly physical. White musk or also synthesized,the good old ketone musk or also known as nitro musk. It serves as a backbone and corset. It is delicately surrounded by powdery soft and floral tones of violet and iris. It smells like soft creamy powder. A lightly synthesized rose dances in. A brief impression of red nail polish. Not quite dry yet and still moist-glossy. Touched by soft-smoky and transparent notes of dry amber and vanilla dust. As delicate-filigree and smoky as a nylon stocking. Finally, everything is tenderly creamed in woody and soft-creamy sandalwood oil. It hardly gets more feminine than this. And thus so irrevocably dedicated to the ladies...!

Conclusion
The aura that spreads this perfume is toxic,...toxic-feminine!
And this I mean very positively,full of high regard and worthy respect. The durability is remarkable. It literally melts into the skin and the wearer for hours and becomes one with her. The sillage comes close to a calm pulse beat. Well perceptible and calm-loose. At the time, I had never experienced the perfume. I was probably too busy with the male variant Aqualambara. The perfume is a skin scent or rather a musk perfume. It touches on an animalic chypre by a hair's breadth. But is not one despite the notes. If you were to put clothes,animals,art or human features on this perfume,I would know a few! Seen as clothing it would be a smoky black,worn,delicate transparent nylon stocking. Soft and matte powdered,feminine-human scented. Lightly greased by shimmering,silky-creamy body lotion. So delicate and sensitive. But pulled on tension,..quite "captivating"! If it were an animal then a pink orchid mantis. Almost static, immobile, lurking and merging with the environment. Hardly body use to get what is important,...food. And be it the own partner! If the perfume were a painting, then probably the Mona Lisa. A smug and inscrutable smile with which one does not know until today what it has to mean. If one would refer the perfume to a person, then it would be the Femme Fatal. Her feminine magnetism more than aware. And also cold-blooded and unscrupulous willing to use it if necessary! But what am I talking about? It is actually just a perfume!? What "unfortunately" is no longer available. There was the perfume only a very short era. Most regrettable! But let me tell you. Sometimes it is perhaps better so. It would still collateral-feminine and unspeakable-beautiful damage today! Oh Diego,......what did you think now thereby...?

Oh,..that reminds me!
If the perfume would be an opera, then this....
certainly Insanely beautiful...!
