Take me... ❤
...I couldn't resist the promising invitation of Iris lipstick in a blood-red dress and ventured in blindly.
I was curious about the company of the cocoa and the tuberose, which is sometimes too pompous for me, also made me a bit anxious.
And yet, I couldn't resist...
Right out front, I fell in love ❤
As soon as I come into contact with the fragrance, it draws me under its spell, it is love at first sniff, so to speak. Every risk was worth it As is often the case with fragrances that I find completely successful and fascinating, and this one is clearly one of them, I find it rather difficult to describe them in individual elements or sequences. The harmonious overall impression prevails. Like when we fall in love, we can perhaps say that it is his eyes or her hair that fascinates us so much, but falling in love is not sufficiently explained by that.
The fragrance starts off cautiously powdery-fruity, a cheeky little fruit gleams from behind a wafer-thin peppery-spicy veil.
This shyness only lasts for a short moment, very soon the wraps fall and the fragrance presents itself in all its facets. I wouldn't speak of a process in which individual fragrances take over from one another, but rather of weaving all components into a seductive red scent dress
Flowery things are added, but very discreetly, nothing pushes itself into the foreground, no rose and fortunately not the tuberose. On the contrary, the tuberose surprises me with a wonderful sun cream note, sun-kissed skin flashes out and radiates the warmth of the day.
Little by little, a dry cocoa nuance comes to the fore, as if the tip of the tongue is licking a blob of dessert from the lips, without ever drifting into the kitschy-sweet-sticky.
Other soft notes like amber and probably sandalwood (I can't make it out directly) join in and let this rendezvous fade away cuddly.
And how is it with the iris?
The iris gives the fragrance a fine powdery texture from the outset, which is increasingly complemented by a creamy texture as it progresses.
And how's that lipstick thing? Especially on fabric, the fragrance also shows that dry, almost mineral lipstick-like note that I like so much and am always hungry for. She gives Prends-moi (take me)
in the projection again and again a special playful touch. Nevertheless I would rather speak of a general make-up instead of a lipstick scent.
In any case, the aura radiates something very noble and elegant and yes, indeed seductive as well.
I ordered the 50ml bottle, which has a funny diamond-shaped base. It consists of beautiful heavy red glass and a valuable stubble. The spray is very fine and easy to dose.
The durability is really persistent with many hours, the Sillage as already mentioned rather discreet. It's not a blatant "look at all of them", but an exclusive luxurious togetherness, which you get here.
I must say that the scent surprised me very positively. It's not that I didn't have any hope because of the favourite notes mentioned, but too often I've been disappointed by promising pyramids and the Isabey fragrances tested so far haven't left a big impression on me. So I approached it with a restrained hope.
What I experienced after the first spray has really flashed me and I will definitely follow the invitation "Prends-moi -take me" very often and gladly. I think, it will be my companion for warm summer evenings this year.
