Women and unicorns... dip roses in coffee together!
Unicorns. They seem to be the only animals, or rather mythical creatures, that seem to make you women crazier than to freak out at the sight of cute cats or horses.

Anyway, why do women love horses so much?
You don't even have to ask guys here, because if you ask a guy how he finds horses, he would only answer that he would find horses cool only because of the size of their "Dingeldi" of these animals and that he would wish his "Dingeldi" would be at least as big:D ... This is even clichéd in films or series (Leonard from The Big Bang Theory, for example, wishes in one scene that he would prefer a "man's power" like that of a horse, whereupon Sheldon admonishes him to remain decent... :D).

But seriously, why is that? So this love of horses and ponies and unicorns and stuff?
But I can already imagine that the answer is difficult to fathom, as we could all be asked the same question about cats. Why do we love these things so much? On the other hand cats just look cute! So the answer here would be simpler... And horses? Um... I don't want to say anything about that until I bring all the women here against me! :DD
But how do I get on horses in the first place?

It's very simple: Because I'm BAD for reading!!! This scent is called Sweet Peony, so it has something to do with peonies! But I always read Sweet PONY!!! all the time!
Well,... and somehow I had to think about how much some women like horses and ponies! And that you are even more freaked out by unicorns (as certain Ritter Sport chocolate with unicorns motifs clearly proved a few years ago!) :DD

The fragrance:
The scent begins with rose scents, while the coffee is almost effective at the same time. And by "to work" I mean that it begins to smell of coffee, and not that you either wake up or that you feel the need to do some business after enjoying coffee :D
After that coconut is the next note that you can smell quite well, which smells nice as always and gives the whole thing an exotic touch.
A little later the coffee becomes weaker again, and the coconut is not as strong anymore. The scent is generally more flowery, but I think that you can still smell the roses best among the flowers, because the scent has this slightly sour (but also somewhat sweet) scented scent of roses.
The floral and sweet scent remains almost unchanged for quite a while, but at some point a light, woody note can be heard in between. This would have to be the sandalwood, even if it cannot be determined exactly.
It may be that many people will probably find it annoying that the fragrance also has a clearly perceptible, synthetic note, which in my opinion is not really annoying. In addition, it has the most intensive effect for a while in the heart note and decreases significantly towards the base.
In the base, the fragrance remains mainly floral (where roses still smell best) and is slightly sweetish-woody.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is simple average and therefore best smells from normal to smaller distance.
I found the shelf life quite good, because the fragrance lasted more than ten hours.

The bottle:
Hm, I've never made friends with the Montale flacons before. For me, they simply look like deodorant cans made of shiny aluminium. This one has a pink color with a yellow gradient. The neck of the bottle looks like a screw cap, which is interesting, there is no lid. To prevent the sprayer from being pressed accidentally, a clamp is attached here, as always, to which the metal logo of Montale is also attached. Well, it's just okay.

Hm, the scent itself is quite nice. Although it begins unusually with the Rose-Coffee-Coconut combination, it then leans into the more flowery area with sweet notes. Apart from the beginning, the majority of the fragrance is almost 0815-flower fragrance like many others, but you still have a little while to smell a quite synthetic note, which you might not necessarily like, although this synthetics will become noticeably weaker later. Can be used in spring and summer as a casual scent of the day.

The scent is generally mediocre for me, well, maybe a little better than that, so a test might be worth it, but you don't necessarily have to know it. Unless you find the pink bottle somehow cute :D

And speaking of cute:
I still think cats are the coolest animals ever, not only because they are so soft and cute, but also because they sometimes have the stupid eyes when they don't know what to do.
Horses, on the other hand, I find... somehow... I shouldn't actually mention it, as I said... like this scent here: Nice, but slightly boring!

*run away* :DD

Pink and white: a true dream fairy tale!
"Sweet Peony" contains everything a young woman dreams of in spring: pink-white flower foam, very young and still quite innocent, meets adult coffee and sandalwood notes.

These full-bloomed peonies, splendours and ornaments in every garden, in every vase, generously exude their bewitching scent.
We often had to put the big bouquets, which I got earlier for my birthday, on the balcony in the evening: their almost anaesthetic scent made it hard for me to sleep.
The beauty of the original, slightly rustic flowers, however, fully compensates for this.
Spending a night on the balcony in June is not a big deal when the numerous June beetles come to visit you.

In "Sweet Peony", the peonies are surrounded by just as fragrant playmates: together with the large-flowered white jasmine and the proud rose, they unite to form a fluffy foam, richly perfumed with the aroma of sun-ripened peaches.
Coconut and the always a little scratchy clove dance eagerly in this round dance.
They bring, together with a lot of warm, erotic vanilla scent, a little "the scent of the big wide world" into the originally a little rustic garden.
So far "Sweet Peony" is very young and carefree; aromatic strong coffee and the always very popular sandalwood make this fragrance adult - it will grow up!
As a faithful companion for many hours, it retains its flowery lightness without major changes in the fragrance.
"Sweet Peony" stays true to himself to the end!

For me "Sweet Peony" embodies the ideal wedding fragrance.
A bride, radiant with love, happiness and despite all modernity full of expectations, all dressed in pink and white, could wear this fragrance wonderfully.
The bridal bouquet, ingeniously bound as a flower cascade of all these flowers in the course and perhaps still some vetches, completes this romantic fragrance picture.
We don't need the obligatory wreath of apple blossoms here to paint a very charming picture.

A "May bride" who smells like "Sweet Peony" certainly has all the prerequisites for "the great romantic cinema".
But also all other women who fall in love with this fragrance will spend a wonderful time.
You have already found the right companion for this with this Montale fragrance.
Good luck

Roses at last ???
If you love sweet rosy smelling and double peonies, this is the one for you. The fragrance is not spoiled by inappropriate or unpleasant companions. Everything fits together and whisks you away on a cloud of sweet rose petals, a rose scent I've been looking for for a long time. In the base, delicate rose petals and velvety vanilla meet with a hint of sandalwood

A peony bouquet and a latte to go, please!
I'm testing this fragrance right now :)

So far it tells me a nice story ..

I'm out with the girls and we're in the mood for a latte macchiato ...
Since we do not necessarily want to squat on a terrace we take a latte to go from our favorite coffee shop.
While we wait for our order, a great floral scent rises to our noses. It's a nice combination with the coffee smell:) ..
With coffee in hand, we leave the place and right around the corner is a flower shop. Peonies!
Mhhh! That was the flowery smell of just now.... "a bunch of peonies, please!" ..
We sip our coffees , and sniff the bouquet ...
A great sweet kicks in...my brain associates the sweet with a nursery rhyme and presses play, "where's the coconut, where's the coconut..who stole the coconut ..."
:)

...
The coffee scent is long gone ... the floral and sweet are the main stars ... every now and then a woody note makes itself known....

...
Arrived at home, after hours of walking I put the flowers in a vase and continue to enjoy this sweet floral splendor.
Floral/Sweet/Slightly Woody...
... a little artificial - Montale halt ...

A floral fragrance with Character
A Chinese legend tells of a capricious empress with magical powers who one winter morning ordered all the flowers in the imperial garden to bloom.
Afraid of the young empress's wrath, all the flowers pleased her.
All except one: the Peony.
The irate empress ordered that all the peonies be moved to a cold and distant region, but the plant resisted the weather and blossomed. The resigned empress had no choice but to crown the peony queen of all flowers.
A floral fragrance with character, which I, not too fond of the genre, find wonderful, airy and spring-like.
Peony, peach and jasmine intertwine to create a most pleasant, mostly feminine creation.
Spring in a bottle, with one of my favorite flowers as the star: the peony.
