To Nina Simone
“All I want is equality
For my sister, my brother, my people and me
Yes, you've been lying to me all these years.
You told me to wash and clean my ears.
And speak very well, just like a lady.
And stop calling me Sister Sadie.
But this country is full of lies.”
These are the words of Mississipi Goddam, a song by Nina Simone (to whom this fragrance is dedicated), created in 1963, after learning of the arson attack in a Baptist church in Alabama that cost the lives of four little girls.
A controversial song, not played on the radio but which Nina Simone will perform in all her live performances.
“She was an Anomaly” is one of the phrases that best defines this strong woman, a fighter for racial and gender rights, having the courage to oppose the system.
This creation with unusual but harmonious notes wants to describe her: a floral, slightly fruity and powdery combination. Original and beautiful, I liked it a lot.

At first she was just... gone
Nothing happened... After I had smelled 13 other scents of ELDO this was virtually slipped directly from the paper strip. For several hours I wondered if I might have simply become smell-blind whereby all other fragrances, even the subtle, were still well perceivable. At some point I decided to spray again and lo and behold - there it was. She is actually different. Sugar-sweet and very elusive at first, with a giddy material synthetic undertone that can certainly give sensitive people a headache. It gives it a strange edge. It's probably the combo of incense and ambrofix. I kind of like it and somehow it repels me. On top, though, the gourmand sweetness breathed on me first, always reminding me of the taste of Frangelico. A bit nutty, a bit woody with lots of powdered sugar. The combination is absurd. In fact, an anomaly. Not unique, just rare. It would, were it not so fleeting, unbearable. Generously sprayed on, it behaves kindly very restrained. Presumably, you smell it only when you get close or when you have virtually set it by regular use. After about 6h I was left with only light, white flowers with some powdered sugar. Not my world but certainly for some a good, subtle perfume with a little twist.

Very subtle iris-musk perfume
Good job by daniela andrier in the same line than other perfumes that she has made for Prada. I can get some similarities with infusión d'iris, although this is sweeter, or with Prada femme, although that one is more intense. I can get also some similarities with Prada L'homme.
She was an anomally has an iris Well world, powdery, subtle and sweet, mixed with Woods and musk. The musk gives some more longevity to the perfume.
The lo gevity is not bad, about 7 hours on skin, but the perfume is very subtle and the projection is soft. Good for day time, elegant and sexy. Can be unisex but i think could fit maybe better women because of its softness.

Not impressed. Similar to The Ghost In The Shell but without the interesting notes.

crisp, plastic baby dollhead quickly obliterated into a powdery iris. the musk comes later when it all but evaporates from the skin. fine.

Yet to figure out what it is that smells like cucumber water on my skin, but that's all I'm getting again. Disappointing.

Powdery opening, but almost nothing 5 mins in. A sliver of sandalwood, only perceivable a few centimeters out. Bad batch (20i43) maybe?

Very subtle iris and musk perfume over a very soft Woody back. The longevity is good but the projection is too soft, almost unnoticeable!
