The first two times I sprayed on "Angelique", I was initially surrounded by a medicinal and / or turpentine-like "fragrance". I found that little inspiring, I also consulted the fragrance pyramid at a loss, which of the fragrance components that could have triggered and was not found. I took a look at the label's homepage, marveled at the price (£118 for 50 ml), but found nothing there to match my "turpentine perception" either. Curious to see how £118 would translate into euros, I visited aLzD's site: €138.00 for 50 ml, a sample for €8.00. What I also found was a fragrance pyramid, nicely divided into top, heart and base notes, and among others cypress in the top note, which might explain my perception described above. But back to the fragrance.
Pleasingly, I don't notice the turpentine since the third time I sprayed it on. "Angelique" immediately becomes floral-powdery and then gradually changes to floral-woody with a bright spicy note. Smoky notes do not show up on me. And that's all I can say about the scent progression.
Worth mentioning I still find that A has a fairly discreet sillage and the durability is rather in the midfield. After the turpentine impression had kindly left me, I have - against my habit - vigorously eingedieselt to catch once the full dose of the fragrance, but that worked only partially.
Conclusion: "Angelique" is finally a pleasant discreet floral fragrance with gentle woody underpinnings for occasions in which one / woman fragrance-technically does not want to stand out.
I thank Ioid for the test opportunity
