It has become a dear habit for me to regularly buy the summer editions of Myake - in autumn.

Then they are reduced in price - and still carry a touch of summer with them - which I find very pleasant in autumn.

And Shades of Kolam fits very well into the autumn, as it is not overly fresh, but only slightly fruity due to the tart - sweet grapefruit - but which is tuned to autumn, due to the warm soft cardamom note.
But the focus is on centifoils - stuffed fragrant roses - which I also keep in my garden.

They captivate with their impressive flowers and their intense sweetish scent.
I would not have expected to find such a beautiful rose scent - although the box already shows a sea of flowers made of pink centifoils.
The rose scent is framed by light jasmine and light cedar.
The rice note gives Kolam another pleasant softness.

It's a pity that Kolam is only a summer edition, because you can wear it confidently all year round.

I also like the association with India - although Kolam has no oriental touches.

But the colourful India still has a ring to it

Summer
I love these summery, uncomplicated Miyakes. Every year they find their way into my drawer and are used up except for a mini rest.
I have the quirk of not being able to completely empty a bottle if I haven't already bought a new one. So my chest of drawers is bursting at the seams, although many bottles are just about empty. So what...

Schades of Kolam is fruity fresh and soft. All the time. The grapefruit together with the jasmine make it so fruity. In the base it gets a little warmer and more cuddly. It doesn't radiate as much as the previous summer scents and is altogether a bit softer and more harmonious. Is it because of the Basmati rice? No idea, I usually only eat it. Although it smells really nice when you cook it.
At the end you can no longer notice the cedar wood, which otherwise comes across as very woody and dry.
The fragrance remains uncomplicated and definitely never becomes too much.
The durability is actually quite okay.

I generally like the flacons of LˋEau dˋIsseys very much, but this one is super nice. Typical cone with summery design.
