Practical joke
Burlesque - from the Italian Burla/Burlesca = prank, fun
Practical joke? Fun? Seriously?
More suitable would be: male vamp, Medusa, sirens, goddesses in wolf's clothing
I really like it animalistic, smoky, humming and special But a scent must let me breathe before I suffocate Sounds worse than it is now Burlesque by Maria Candida Gentile is massive and powerful.
A powder puff deeply pressed into flower powder, moved back and forth, back and forth and properly lubricated. Lift it up and shake it briefly over the potty so that there is a nice powder-polluted frame around the potty. Atishoo! Excuse me
And then off on the neck, on the décolleté, briefly between the thighs and
finally, shake the rest out over the head and flush it through the fine powder dust.
Wow, what a lily pad. It could be the white king lily. A sweet, exotic, slightly bitter and creamy scent. Somehow forbidding and at the same time appealing.
Similar in intensity to blooming jasmine or ylang ylang. Just a humming sound.
In addition the rose, which was purified with incense. Bright pink red, shiny. Lightly buried and
cool with a touch of smoke. Mmmm, lovely The lily sits down hard on the skin and one has trouble to get the tiny little orange speckles to
smell. With every movement, with every breath and with every warm-cold feeling develops
Burlesque again. I would put him in the genus of boudoir vintage and opium vitange Not because of a possible (actually only with Boudoir) scent similarity, but because of the
immense durability and density.
Mine! Definitely and calmly a splash more - for the "practical joke"

Sensual, intoxicating and seductive
This one is a huge lemming at the moment. 

Burlesque is a very sensual and as far as I'm concerned the best iris fragrance around, although I have to admit that I'm not usually a huge iris lover.

If you try Burlesque with a completely open mind, and don't have expectations on how it should smell like, you are in for a treat. Burlesque opens with a dusty blood orange, directly followed by a slightly sweet iris accompanied with a fresh patchouli. It's dusty, sweet, sensual, intoxicating and seductive. 

Although at first I finished a whole sample it was not love. I found it strange, unexpected and somewhat salty. But my second sample, which I received as a gift with my Luberon bottle, took me by surpise. This time I found it wonderful and alluring. Burlesque is a must have for me now.
