Neither different nor very inspiring
The slogan in the advertisment tells us that Von Eusersdorff produce "inspiringly different fragrances", but the line-up consists of five very traditional scents, all of them called "Classic". So we have "Classic Patchouli, Classic Myrrh, Classic Mimosa" etc. The person behind the brand is Camille Henfling, a desendant of the German Von Eusersdorff family, who were expert traders in rare essences and whose long-standing tradition Henfling aspires to rejuvenate. But does he manage to breathe new life into classic fragrances? I tested them all, but couldn't detect any modern twist let alone any new or surprising element in the fragrances Von Eusersdorff presented so far. "Classic Patchouli" is their best offering, yet there are so many other patchoulis out there that I can't quite see the point of yet another "dark patch" combined with vanilla and sandalwood.
But let's turn to "Classic Orange" now. "Classic Orange" is a composition which does what it promises on the label, i.e. you need to love the smell of blood orange in order to appreciate it. I don't get much of the suede leather or the Chinese osmanthus cited in the pyramide, which is a pity, because I love leathery accords and I love osmanthus. What I do get is a faint note of black tea and a lot of petitgrain, a fairly pleasant combo, but no world-shaker. The orange remains the dominant force in this scent, which stays linear on my skin. Considering the promise of "inspiringly different fragrances", I'm not impressed. - Please note that I'm no friend of monothematic orange-fragrances in general and that orange, neroli and everything centred around this aroma is one of my least favourite notes. Someone who likes orange might come to a completely different conclusion about "Classic Orange" than I did.
