Who's blue here???
Hello and welcome to a new comment from me! :)
Hold on! What's that now?? Here comes a fragrance in a BLUE bottle, but which is called "This Is Not A Blue Bottle? What's going on here? I'll explain it to you: The manufacturer, Histoires de Parfums, had once found that perfumes and perfumes in particular are very irritating and they brought out a blue bottle and mentioned that it was not a blue bottle. And they have achieved their goal of confusing you all! What, you don't believe me?
Believe it, I may often tell absolute nonsense, but every now and then I also tell the truth... *sigh* Well then do not believe me :D
But the name of the fragrance is actually very interesting, I think :D
The same goes for the manufacturer, of whom I haven't been able to test very many fragrances yet, but I found the few so far quite good. Histoires de Parfums, by the way, creates fragrances that are meant to tell stories, and in doing so it is oriented towards famous events and personalities from almost all periods of human history.
Now with "This Is Not A Blue Bottle" there is a little exception, because this time the fragrance is not really based on a story, even if the name of the fragrance is probably a reference to an artist's work, but I will tell you that after the description of the fragrance, because I seem to talk endlessly again... :D
Some now write that they would smell a lot of Ylang-Ylang. Well, I could hardly perceive Ylang, and I'm not exactly sad about that. Because you know that ylang-ylang is one of those fragrances that I personally find very exhausting, and it is precisely with such gentle scents that I think such a sultry, flowery note would have disturbed the fragrance rather than enhancing it.
Towards the end, however, I actually smell Ylang-Ylang, but fortunately this scent is not disturbing here at all, maybe also because the powdery-smooth and sweetish scents are simply in the foreground like the benzoic resin, which smells so wonderfully pleasant. More than the Ylang I smell the earthy patchouli, which is nice here, even if patchouli is not one of my favourite scents. In the end it stays warm and as described pleasantly sweet and powdery.
The silage and the durability:*
The sillage is quite moderate and even gets weaker. If there was no tonka bean here, the scent would probably disappear quickly... I recommend to spray a little bit on your clothes to get more of the scent! Even if the Sillage is rather weaker, the shelf life is still quite good, as the scent lasts for more than seven or eight hours.
Anyway, he still has a nice white pattern and looks simply nice and modern. I like it very much!
(Theoretically, you could still smoke the painting if you crumpled it up and lit it in a pipe... but well, don't worry, I'm not one of those people who would destroy works of art, as I generally like art in general very much!)
But the blue bottle of the fragrance here is neither an image nor an object of fantasy, it is real and indeed BLUE! Well, as far as I can tell from here. Maybe the actual bottle is completely different and was only camouflaged with a blue color to confuse you all (but you'll fall for anything :D). Anyway, I find it very interesting, and if someone finds a better explanation, he or she can tell me here :)
But enough babbling, the smell is very nice, but unfortunately quite weak. From the fragrance type it smells to me like a nice, sweetishly gentle perfume, but since it is weak, you can use it (or rather) well every day and in your free time, best in autumn and winter. If you have the opportunity to test it, then do so, because it smells very nice to me!
Well, and this brings me back to the end and I wish you all a nice evening :)
