Awesome, basil!
I have been looking for a long time for something that gives me such an authentic basil impression. Like many before me, I had already tested Torino 21 due to its comparability, even though it's a great fragrance, it just wasn't the one I was looking for.
As I am a basil lover, be it when cooking, in cocktails or even in an exotic fruit salad, this fragrance is a total winner for me.

H/S are okay, but the expectations here were not too high, as the price is really fair for what you get. Great for the summer, for the office or for a relaxed evening on the balcony.

Not really my cup of tea
I was looking for a cheaper alternative to "Join The Club - Torino21 | XerJoff" and was allowed to test the fragrance today thanks to a dear perfumer. In my opinion, the "Join The Club - Torino21 | XerJoff" is much sweeter, more floral and minty. With Thé Basilic you only get the mint slightly in the background, but the full load of basil. It also smells very authentic to me, not at all artificial. I don't smell any fruit at all, really the purest herbal explosion and already very tart, which is not really my thing. Normally I love soft, feminine, fresh/sweet fragrances. Nevertheless, I can't get my nose away from my wrist. Somehow it's got me... It's quite likely that it will move in with me for the summer. After the first test, I think it lasts very well, after a good 3 hours it can still be perceived as freshly sprayed.

The more affordable Torino 21
I'll start at the back, with the conclusion: the decision between Torino 21 and Thé Basilic was made very quickly after two tests. The Molinard has the edge. Reason: price or value for money, as you like.

A direct comparison of the fragrances, as carried out in the test: Both start off minty, herbaceous and fresh. And while the Torino is more citrusy, the Molinard clearly focuses on basil. Nevertheless, despite slight differences, which I will discuss below, the similarity is very high - I would say at least 95 percent.

And a closer look: The rosemary quickly comes through in the Torino, which admittedly gives it an interesting twist, making it a little spicier, more multidimensional perhaps.

Both become softer, with fruity herbal freshness and slightly tart tea soon followed by a sweet, fruity musky pillow. In the case of Molinard, a little earlier, which in my opinion also gives it a B rating. You actually want the wonderfully refreshing herbal potpourri - so I do with both. It lifts the spirits in dark clouds and gives you stamina in sweaty heat. Here, Torino keeps its top note promise a little longer.

So am I criticizing the Molinard rather than choosing it? Yes! It doesn't hurt to add the Thé Basilic, even several times. Longevity, development and sillage require this - typically Freshie - in case of doubt. But also with Torino... A little later. But nevertheless.

But what is not an issue in one case, because a good 50 euros for 75 ml makes a repeat purchase realistic, hurts in the other case, at least for me: 180 euros for 50 ml. The decision is quite easy for me.

Fresher geht´s hardly
During my penultimate foray through the Düsseldorf perfumeries, I noticed at Beauty Affair that not only are Molinard's Eaux de Parfums from the violet Les Elements Collection available again, but that the range has been extended by three brand-new fragrances. Even so new that they are not yet presented on the official Molinard homepage.

These are the fragrances Citron Noir, Gingembre and Thé Basilic, which differ in their flacon design to such an extent that they are lighter in colour and the main theme is stylishly depicted. Since Thé Basilic seemed to me to be the most unusual of the combination, I wanted to take a look at it first.

Those who like their basil not only gustorically with tomato mozzarella or on Neapolitan pizza, but also or even just olfactorically, should come here to their special pleasure.

The fragrance starts, as expected, sparkling fresh with a relatively reserved mint and delicately sour citrus notes. But what dominates from the beginning is rich crunchy fresh natural basil as if it were picked directly from the plate and put in front of you.

As the name already suggests, tea is also involved, according to a more detailed description of plantations in Assam, to diminish the sweet freshness of basil as a small bitter counterpart and to give the light, cheerful composition a little more seriousness. Fits wonderfully.

If you immerse a little deeper into the composition, you will see traces of lavender and a tiny blackcurrant, which do not play an important role.

Slightly creamy musk offers a fine round finish at the end - like mozzarella with basil.

In the end, Thé Basilic is the perfect illusion, as if on a spring morning you would enjoy your bruschetta with fresh basil and a cup of Assam tea in a Mediterranean garden. The fragrance is not necessarily conceived as a compliment catcher, but it conveys an absolutely relaxed revelation of well-being for the cheerful days of life or to make yourself some. With regard to projection and durability, one also remains quite carefree.

In addition, you can again expect top quality from Molinard with a natural appearance and an excellent price-performance ratio. It is also hard to believe that the cap of the bottle is neither magnetic nor artistic in any other way, but perhaps a little simple. Apart from that, I can say with a clear conscience that Thé Basilic is probably one of the most appealing, authentic, fresh and green basil fragrances.

The perfect summer scent. A fresh basil with a hint of mint, so green, so realistic. Then the cooling tea with a touch of jasmine and musk.
