The other day I was looking for a new scent. I like leathery, but meanwhile the view goes beyond the leather plate. So I wanted to go to a well-known perfumery with the S in the Ruhr area, but it closed a bit earlier on the weekend. So off to Dortmund, there should also be a good perfumery there. When I arrived there, I first noticed the numerous motorcycles, where several bikes pulled trailers with beer crates. In one of them a rocker lay totally drunk, the robe covered only half of his voluminous belly. Well, I thought to myself, belly-free is just no longer reserved only for the ladies.
When I now stopped for a bite to eat, I just heard the departure of an apparently dissatisfied guest, who, while slamming the door, shouted something about a visit to the turquoise. "What was that?" "Oh, you know, the man still doesn't understand that these are perfumes and not shoe sprays, since the big competitor has sold him several perfumes for it. Since then, the man hasn't been all there. Every time he buys new leather shoes, he shows up here to buy a leather shoe spray."
Suddenly you heard a loud burping from one direction, all eyes went to where a rocker was now scratching his butt. The shop assistant seemed to guess my question: "they'll be gone soon but I don't like to throw them out. They come from Herne, unfortunately they are always drunk but they buy a lot of alcoholic perfumes in the sense of smelling like rum or whisky. The one you could admire outside is our best customer, but only buys the Bentley Intense. And not too close."
I stood there a little perplexed, but then I remembered. "An acquaintance told me about the Kuhuyan of Parfums de Marly. Or is that diabetes in the bottle again? "Let me reassure you, from a hack on perfume disguised as Gustav G., I know it's not so. Let me spray some on you
Spray, spray, spray.
"Was this developed in collaboration with a florist shop? Or Beaufort?"
"No, why do you ask?"
"Smells like Fathom V with less brackish water."
"Is this good or bad?"
"Well, for the brackish water vibe, I already have the Beaufort. Tell me something. Does he by any chance still get leathery? Not that I care, I have a wide variety of interests. Oh, do I see three Tuscan Leather and four Oro 1920? Wrap them all up!!!"
l "II put them back for you. So, to Kuhuyan: what you call dirty floral at the beginning is the violet. Of course, this has a special note, which is also often used to create a leather chord. The Fahrenheit also uses it for its leathery, spritzy flair. This phase together with the jasmine is what you described as before. This melange is slightly herbaceous, granted. But it doesn't stay that way."
"Well, after that the scent becomes tame at first and threatens to disappear, because the leather is presented very gently, so it is not for leather enthusiasts. The combination with the heliotrope, however, does not result in a powdery, gourmand leather, but rather in the leather being presented just as softly and with a cut green impact. As a contrast to other leather creations, I would describe it as having a courtly character. Do you understand how I mean that?"
"Sure, after listening to the Waringham saga completely on tape in the car on the way to work. Sounds honestly very mediocre so far."
"Well, at the core, with an oud, amber and tonka bean that is hardly recognizable to me, we unfortunately have nothing to tear this out. I can only tell you that at some point you forget the scent and when you sniff it up close, after a few hours, the Kuhuyan is quite splendid."
"At least I don't have to ride a broom and wait until Walpurgis Night for it to ignite again. But it all sounds very...modest. As if the fragrance house did not know where to steer. Of course it's a pity if you can't reach the leather lobby or the anti-leather lobby with it. Maybe something for the hardware store, something like leather gloves for the garden."
"True. So, you'll take the others though, right?"
"Sure, and by this Bentley Inten-"
"All gone, all bought up by this gang from Herne."
