The misunderstood genius in the typesetting box
Many years ago my colleagues gave me a perfume bottle for my miniature collection.
Since they presented it to me without the outer carton, I had no idea which treasure I could call my own now It was the Quince Blossom bottle by Estée Lauder with gold cap and blue decorative tassel and contained 7 ml perfume Since the miniatures in my collection had to look good, I didn't find it too bad that I wasn't able to open the bottle, so that heaven on earth remained hidden in a bottle for years.
I put it in my letterbox with the other 300 minis. These were regularly dusted, admired from time to time and since taste changes over the years, at some point it was put in a box and forgotten in the cellar.
In the course of my last move, the cellar had to be cleared out as well, with the help of a friend. At some point Biggi discovered the box, examined it and after sharp cries of delight, she reproachfully held the Youth Dew bottle under my nose: "What is that thing doing in the cellar?
With a lot of patience, knocking, hot water and good coaxing we finally managed to open the bottle and I smelled it for the first time: one of the densest, spiciest, most fantastic fragrance bombs ever - opium aside.
Because of the name I had expected a teen fragrance, the bottle suggested a floral content .
But what I was sniffing was an event: intense, warm, oriental, clove, cinnamon, later vanilla and the Peru balsam I loved so much, a hint of patchouli and incense and many more ingredients, which in perfect combination create a special, unique, heavenly fragrance.
I immediately remember the divas of the fifties or the advertising slogan of a refreshment candy: if it is too strong, you are too weak! This fragrance is mature, the wearer is self-confident, room filling, an event like the fragrance itself.
At the same time RuPaul's dragrace shoots through my head. Who better to embody a diva than a drag queen in her stage outfit? With Youth-Dew she has a fragrance to match.
Probably the following sounds pretty stupid, but I just feel it:
As much as I love it, I do not feel up to or worthy of this fragrance.
I wear it at home if at all, I leave the walking to others, the worthy and the unworthy :-)
