Delizie al Limone
Alessandra walks through the alleys of the small Sicilian town of Taormina. It's the first vacation alone for the 30-year-old; she and her longtime boyfriend broke up in the winter. She has taken ten long days off from her boring office job in Milan to spend them here. It's early April and early afternoon, the sun is high, it's pleasantly warm and Alessandra feels wonderfully relaxed in her white linen dress, her dark blonde hair under her straw hat blowing in the light breeze. She has been here for a few days and is glad that the crowds of tourists that usually populate the city have stayed in the lower streets. Alessandra is just noticing her stomach growling when a wonderful scent hits her nose: lemon and vanilla, succulent dough with a little powdered sugar on top. She turns around and sees a small bakery. "Pasticceria da Giovanni" is written in squiggly red letters on a tiled sign above the entrance. Alessandra can't help herself, the wonderful smell draws her in, she enters and orders her two of those little spherical tarts right away, they are called "Delizie al Limone".

The bakery has a garden where all kinds of flowers bloom, the view goes out to the blue sea and to the small offshore island with a villa made of natural stones. She takes the first bite of the tartlet. The taste is wonderfully lemony, it is not only the juice in the dough but also the peel, at the same time the tart is soft and gentle, the sponge cake dough wraps the lemon like a blanket. Alessandra smiles and takes a second slice. What a surprise: inside the tartlet is a cream filling that tastes strongly of vanilla. It draws in the warm air. The heavy scent of the white flowering jasmine bush, next to which she is sitting, wafts over to her and mingles with the scent of the tartlets. At the end of the small garden is a blossoming orange tree. Below her, the first bathers venture into the still cold Mediterranean Sea.

In the evening, Alessandra has a date with the vacationer in the neighboring apartment, Marco, an investment banker from Turin. They go out to eat at a fine fish restaurant, but Alessandra can't help but think of the bakery with the lemon tarts the whole time. So after the last glass of Grillo, she convinces Marco to walk up the steep alleys again, maybe the bakery is still open? And yes, Giovanni himself, an old, white-haired nonno, is still smiling behind the counter, in front of him a wide variety of tarts, cakes and pies. The bakery smells different now than it did this afternoon: Giovanni must have baked fresh, because there is an intense smell of vanilla and cake batter. Alessandra also finds this smell simply wonderful, so she orders two vanilla tarts and sits down in the garden with Marco. The sun has already set and the first stars appear in the sky. Again the jasmine wafts over, this time stronger, in the night it smells stronger. And with vanilla, creamy and powder-sugar lips, Alessandra and Marco kiss for the first time.

A week later, Alessandra is back in her small and overpriced two-room apartment in Milan and can't forget the cupcakes or Marco. She searches all over Milan for a bakery that bakes these cupcakes, but none taste like they do at da Giovanni's. She calls Marco, they meet again, they become a couple. In the fall they go to Sicily again, eat the tarts, look at the sea, are in love. The little pastry shop in Via Silipigni becomes their place, their living room. Two days before their departure, Giovanni dies unexpectedly of a heart attack. He has no heirs, no children. What is to become of the pasticceria? After a brief reflection, Alessandra and Marco are clear: they will buy the bakery.

The next spring, Alessandra and Marco are behind the counter in the small pastry shop, it is still called "Pastecceria da Giovanni". Again the scent of lemons, vanilla and jasmine wafts through the alleys of Taormina and a young woman in a white linen dress enters the store: "What smells so wonderful here?" she asks. Alessandra smiles, "It's the Delizie al Limone".

Fragrance experience of the extra class
By Night White - hardly any fragrance has engaged me as much as this one. I was originally looking for a fragrance that smelled similar to Emporio Armani Elle. I love this one, but since it's the signature of a friend of mine (as it is of 2 million other women), and I think scent stealing is dumb, I decided to look for an alternative here on Parfumo. After a lot of scrolling, reading, comparing scents and test sniffing, I came across BNW. Quickly ordered a filling and waited joyfully. When the postman rang (once ?), I first sniffed the small atomizer. A Mmh vanilla rose in my nose - great! Sprayed on... and... and hm. Nice, but too unround, the woody in the dry down didn't want to connect with my skin, kind of lay on top, angular and unround. The next day - a very hot summer day, I tested again. And while riding my bike, a beautiful scent rises in my air and I cheered, "This one is coming from me!!!" What I had thought was out of round the day before just felt grown up today! Fine, fine, fine, I'll take that one. By the time I got rid of my shirt in the evening, all that was left was sandalwood...a slight nausea rose in me. Crazy, this was soooo nice a few hours ago! Too bad, I thought, that's where the search starts all over again. I put the test tube aside for now and tested my way through other scents like Lanvin Eclat d'Arpege or Le Parfum by Lalique. I found all the scents quite nice and quite pleasing, but none really blew me away. Too soft, too little substance. When the days got a little cooler, I gave myself and BNW a third chance. We were at a garden party in the evening and I put on BNW. And rediscovered it for the third time: a warm, protective vanilla/sandalwood note - how lovely! I had to sniff it all evening and each time I was reassured. Like a home-away-from-home feeling, like there's nothing more to do. This scent wraps me in warmth and security. It's not what I was originally looking for, and for me it doesn't turn into the oft-cited vanilla/lemon cloud, even if I can guess what's meant by it. And I still find that there's something square about it, which makes it far from "fluffy". Whenever I wear BNW, I feel incredibly secure and arrived, yes - grown up. Only for the really hot days I will have to find something else, but EA doesn't work there either. Besides, now comes first of all the autumn.
By the way: As for the similarity to EA, I can definitely understand it; soft vanilla with woody, vibrant undertone. Still, both have a very different effect on me, BNW is more vibrant, possibly due to the pepper note. And BNW is definitely more skinscent than EA. Thus, it is all mine.

You wanna be my new signature?
Oh most I would like to ask this question to the perfume!
The fragrance surprises me, but is the projection enough for me?

From the front:
This is the first fragrance I've ever NOT liked the top note on in the first few minutes, but then it morphs into an absolute soft powdery creamy vanilla scent.
As I said, in the first few minutes I just thought "ugh", because the coriander seeds together with the bergamot smell a bit like "granny under the arm" on my skin. Just like these old, spicy deodorants, something musty, something stale...
But after about five minutes already disappears (thank God) this spicy note completely and the fragrance is wonderfully creamy on my skin. Directly delicate it seems now - no more scratchy black pepper. The vanilla from the base definitely comes out and blends nicely with orange and the violets. After the fragrance notes, I was a little afraid of the rose, I usually can't stand it. Here, however, I don't notice it at all. In the center is with me clearly the floral, soft vanilla.
And also the base notes after a few hours surprise me. Since, where with other perfumes only a woody, bitter sweetness remains, so this fragrance is with me even after hours still creamy - powdery and pleasant!

Why I still hesitate with the purchase?
The projection is not so good. I smell the fragrance only when I sniff directly on my wrist. So in passing you do not perceive him (with me). Or maybe I just need to fog myself....

Tonka Cream
I cannot let go off this scent!
After the first test the memory of this perfume and the desire to spray it once again is so strong. By now I'm done with my third test and I really wished to own a big bottle in order to spray it without any control.
But there are two flaws:
1. It is a little too discreet meaning it stays too close on one's skin so that sillage is an issue and you could get the impression that it is not as intensive as wanted.
2. I smell something odd like plastic.

Right from the beginning I smell a fat, chubby tonka bean, that bathes joyfully in a pool of whipped cream. You could easily expect a gourmand but that s not it because discreet citric notes do play a role. Actually you cann't detect these citric notes but they are present and as a effect they make the tonka-cream slide in a beauty-cream. The amount of the citric notes are comparable to those of Nivea-Creme.

This tonka-cream that is so discreetly floral and citric does not have much sillage power. It belongs to the category of feel-well and cozy scents. And I think that friends of gourmands as well as friends of clean scents will like it, since the intersection of these two categories can only be a feel-well scent.

Well, I love this perfume and I wish to spray it generously all over me to experience how discreet or how strong it really is i.e. to find out about its sillage and projection.
Warning: Do not test this fragrance or you will fall in love with it. Only available in 100 ml (3.3 oz) bottles unfortunately!!! that cost around 170€.
