Impressive amount of fragrance notes and yet no wow
The list of fragrance notes alone is impressive and is worthy of the Roja Dove limited edition. There is a similar male version, both bottles are almost identical, one with rose and one with silver lettering. To say it up front, True Story and I don't go together. Fragrance family amber / floral / oriental released in 2016.
What starts with neroli, citrus fruits and mint quickly turns into cotton candy. Not burnt candy floss like Baccarat Rouge, but the innocent candy floss from the funfair. Sweet, sticky, synthetic. Clearly a women's fragrance and clearly a winter fragrance. Here, too, you can see that a lot doesn't help a lot. A very synthetic fragrance that reminds me of cheap deodorant sprays from my youth.
White Heaven Beach is a similar fragrance from the brand, without the gourmand note. A spring version of True Story, so to speak. Both fragrances were designed in France, the bottle itself comes from Venice. They clearly didn't want to design a discount fragrance, which you have to give Glamfume credit for.
Chocolate and patchouli in the drydown. A conglomeration of flowers and sugared fruit. Then I smell spices and floral notes in the background. The fragrance then becomes sweetly heavy again, with candied almonds joining in.
Glamfume doesn't seem to grow any further, but exists on a low flame.
For those who are not yet familiar with the brand: Parfümerie Akzente, which owns the online store Parfumdreams as well as the bricks-and-mortar stores, founded its own brand - Glamfume. The fragrance might appeal to those who like oriental scents and don't place great value on durability.

Not My True Story
I'll start with the best:

Sometime between the 7th and 8th hour of this fragrance journey, I find on my wrist a rather nice slightly tart woody, mossy dark chocolate note that only hints at vanilla and tonka. On top of that, alternating light fruity and floral notes hover. This is a fragrance experience, which I would give so between 7 - 8 out of 10 stars.

The rest:

From the beginning to the time described above, I have only fruit gum in the nose. I imagine to smell something floral at some point, but that may have been wishful thinking. The specified herbs and spices avoid me.

At about/after the eighth hour, the fruit gum pushes its way back to the forefront, with the aforementioned base winking through once again every now and then.

The sillage is rather mau, the durability is good to very good (unfortunately).

I thank Clarabella for the test opportunity.

Who does not search, finds nevertheless...
Thanks to a dear Parfuma I came across this fragrance by chance. Actually, I was primarily looking forward to the ordered bottling of another perfume when I opened her fragrance mail. But 'True Story' was included as a nice encore. I had never heard of it before, but the name made me curious...

Admittedly, the almost crazy sequence of fragrances made me smile a bit after the first test. For me, the fragrance generally contains neither floral nor spicy. It starts rather tasty fruity and with a lot of Wumms! In the transition, the gourmand notes gradually unfold, of which the chocolate clearly has the trousers on. At some point a touch of patchouli will be added. That's the way it stays and the scent nestles comfortably-warm to its carrier.

So far so good. Honestly, I could totally understand if you were thinking, "Hmm, okay. Sounds completely unspectacular, everything has been there before.

But what makes the scent so interesting for me after all? I'll be glad to tell you! I am usually very difficult with fragrances that have chocolate and patchouli in the base. Often the chocolate develops into a dark, bitter companion. 70 % plus! I don't like it in reality, because I'm rather the creamy milk or white chocolate type.

The problem with Patchouli is that it quickly seems too shrill, squeaky and overdosed for my nose. So I already missed some scents in the trydown, which I thought were really great before.

But not with 'True Story': Here the chocolate has exactly the right amount of cocoa and the patchouli holds back elegantly or rather underlines the sweetness of the chocolate.

I'm fished! Wants to have!!! :)

Lovely perfume.
This is a lovely perfume which I got as a sample with my Parfumdreams.de online order. Gorgeous scent and the fragrance lifts your mood instantly. All the fragrance notes are well blended like a symphony. It has some of my favorites like bergamot, mandarin, neroli, jasmine, rose, moss and violet. Only thing I dislike is the bottle shape is too masculine for the female scent. There is also a Truestory scent for men with same bottle there it fits.
