I want everything right now.
It's my motto right now. I hadn't bought myself any perfume in a year. Wanted to be thrifty again and use up a few scents before I buy new ones. I also did then
... Two pieces...
And there we go again with the shopping frenzy.
I don't know the predecessor, L'Extase. I haven't tested a single scent of Nina Ricci yet. The name Rose Absolue and this gold and black bottle made my heart beat faster. I risked blind buying. Rating 8.0. I thought nothing would go wrong...
Absolue begins directly sweet-spicy. It's very sweet that it almost kills me. Not sugary sweet, adult sweet (stupid word yes) but I would almost say sexy, seductive-sweet. It's got something.
Pepper comes right behind and displaces this seductive note. Like I smell a pepper mill. Pepper doesn't usually bother me in perfume. Here, however, he becomes a lot to me.
Then Absolue becomes slightly harsh.
Smells like herbes?! Rose oil mixed with pepper. Not a sweet rose, no, it's kind of bitter. Is that the Taif rose? Well, it's interesting, but it's not mine.
The sweet note disappears within a few seconds. So what's next? Potpourri
Yeah, now he's got potpourri.
A living room table with burning vanilla scented candles on it. In the middle of the table there is a huge bowl with potpourri. Now I feel like I'm at home with my grandma.
But what's next? Within a few minutes the potpourri is also gone.
What remains is a fluffy vanilla mousse dusted with pepper...
My Burberry Black? Nothing here. I'll have to revise my statement!
Pooh, the smell's really heavy. I feel the need to let him move on, but the beginning drives me crazy. The first minute smells so damn good haha ;) The note also runs through the entire course of the fragrance but unfortunately weakly :(
First of all, it won't be "bad", let's see how it develops in the summer (I have the quiet assumption that I'll kill my environment with it...)
