I'm speechless. [..]
Everyone who is interested in perfumes, loves or is looking for a new fragrance, will end up i-wann with the house "Xerjoff". - So also I.
It was a blind purchase and I regret it!
What can I say?.
In search of my 2021 summer fragrance, I came across "Erba Pura"'. The composition of the fragrance appealed to me and the reviews convinced me. So do not think twice, and ordered. -
The packaging and the bottle is high-end no question.
If you smell the bottle, you get pure orange. Sprayed on the skin or in the room..total disaster!
Sprayed a spritz on my wrist.
The first 2-4 seconds also pure orange...then comes the slap in the face....
The pure orange disappears and it comes directly a dense, stuffy cloud the indescribably scratchy and hurts in the nose.
After old sofas that stand for years in the basement....
Unfortunately, the scent got worse and worse that I got a headache. After 5 hours I had to wash it off. - A sentence with X! I couldn't. The fragrance literally stuck to me.
Erba Pura was to smell in the whole house, although I had given only a spray on the wrist. Stillage and durability is top (unfortunately).
After 13 hours the stuffy went away and what remained is a light sweet orange.
After several airing, the scent is still perceptible in the house.
- No blind purchase candidate!

pasta rhymes for erba pura
dear friends of the scent bunker...

today's my nose about a masterpiece - which I understand as a tribute to the south of Italy where you enjoy the fruits of life in no way quiet - & for this reason also for the first time an italotedesco mix - have fun ;)

il dufbunker tello giura - la struttura piu sicura
ma quant e' buona fa paura - qualcuno se la fuma
io la indosso e la gente mi domanda quanto dura
messo insieme con bravura - quest e' xerjoff erba pura

tutto a posto

quest e' xerjoff erba pura

niente in banca

quest e' xerjoff erba pura

yes you only know berlusconi and mafia crimes
i bring the maccheroni over like pasta rhymes
italotedesco with the bud spencer vibes
and my heart beats for naples so you finally know

you can count on it all masters of all classes
want to write masterly fragrances with pleasure
this one is beyond belief
chris maurice carbonnel can't let it go
and worldwide, all the cash registers are simply ringing

yes from the south of italy from calabria
works the fleet bergamot even at karl-heinz & uncle hotte
it goes off like sensimillia with lemons from sicilia
it goes down in the vaniglia - trust me that i'm feeling ya
but don't come to me with strengh and power
i'm hanging with herbert stricker, sergio momo, marc gebauer
& props go out to the twitch chat on the lurk

what's the code?

;)
_____________________________________________________________

erba pura is probably the fragrance that I have worn in the past year - despite the not so small collection - the very most - and that is actually nothing more to add than just very very maybe my little video tribute - have fun! :)

Chernobyl fruit basket
The first time I heard about this fragrance was about three years ago, in the middle of the Corona Pandemic. I remember how I furtively pulled away the mask in the perfume department of my trust to smell the fragrance, which was just praised to the skies.

The expectation was high, he should be the "unicorn" of fragrances and combine the best of so many fragrances. He would be sweet, gourmand, fruity, soft and yet intense and just heavenly.

The disappointment that followed was bottomless....

A cloud of synthetic pseudo-fruit hit me with such olfactory aggressiveness that I flinched back from the bottle. I just could not believe it, and smelled it again carefully. No, it couldn't be. One look at the bottle - I was not mistaken.

Even on the fragrance strip, this perfume did not undergo a miraculous transformation. To the artificial indefinable fruit cocktail came only a pungent musk note to it, which made the fragrance but not really more rounded, but rather more penetrating.

Nevertheless, I still gave Erba Pura many chances, even on my skin and on others. But I just can not "see" what others perceive so positive and pleasant in this fragrance. The described "mouth-watering" fruitiness and softness remains completely hidden from me.

Also the "beauty" of the velvet flacon, which calls me - certainly somewhat exaggerated - "unhygienic" and with time gets a worn and flaked "patina", does not open up to me.

And if I'm honest, my black soul is already looking forward to the Erba Pura after his meteoric rise just as quickly burns up as he appeared.

The smoothie with charm
Thanks to a dear Parfumos I was finally allowed to test this great fragrance. I know, I know I'm late. But better late than never. 1000 Thanks to this great community. ♡
I sprayed it on me today, mentally in anticipation of the next beautiful sunny days. First impression was already mega bombastic! I visited a friend and already on the way in the car I had to sniff me constantly. Arrived there he said to me: "You smell so great" I asked "after what it smells for you?" he said "as your apartment smells"
So if you've ever wondered "what does MelOn's apartment actually smell like?" here you go, Erba Pura :D

But now for the scent!
It starts off with a strong blast of fresh bergamot, which is immediately joined by a colorful fruit cocktail. I smell peach, mango and maybe even a little passion fruit. This scent is so good, you could drink it. Refreshing and juicy, you can feel the orange juice drop. And I'm talking about ripe juicy Filipino mango's here, not what you always get to buy here! Just something to put in your mouth.

These notes linger for at least 6 hours. But that's not all!

Then the base notes begin.
A warm and at the same time somewhat woody smell spreads comfortably around the fruit. Through the musk it nestles against me like a second skin.
I do not know what I should find better here, the top note, the heart note or the base?
When you find a fragrance like this, you know it's love. I also, by the way, never expected to ever find such a long lasting fruity scent.

Chapeau!

That he comes on my wish list, is probably pretty clear! I must confess also the color of the bottle attracts me like magic and screams: "I want to be your summer scent"

No Mercy
Please forgive me, but unfortunately, after the fourth, extensive Xerjoff test, I now think I dislike them all. I can not get to it. There's something in all of them that I find disgusting and that always feels like a slap in the face. There is nothing hidden, no subtle sexiness but rather something like inflatable boat lips and made tits...Sorry, that is now very politically incorrect but so it feels to me...

This phenomenon brings some of the popular, modern and hyped niche fragrances, all of which impress with crushing sillage, atomic durability and a presence like a narcissistic bulldozer. But in doing so, in my opinion, shoot far beyond the target and slay me with your intensity.
Which, in turn, makes me worry that a lot of people these days seem to be starting to accept this overstimulation that's happening as normality in our hyper-civilized, technologized daily lives. Netflix, TikTok, porn and an overdose of social media - non-stop, all day long. And we only live here in Central Europe, what will it look like in SupersizeMe-America? Just yesterday, unfortunately, I experienced the same thing with Delina from Parfums de Marly. I know, now I get double trouble from the fans, I'm sorry *cough*.
At the same time, I am absolutely no opponent of molecules and the right amount of synthetics, quite the opposite.

To the fragrance: Already sniffing the atomizer lets me overdosed Ambroxig sweaty guess and it immediately forms this unpleasant pulling at the back of the nasal passages down to the throat. The first (and only) spray unfortunately confirms that I am too weak and that ultra concentrated retort water too strong. When the frontal assault has subsided somewhat, I can smell artificial flowers. And chewing gum. Unfortunately, I don't manage to define this any further. The sweetness and squeakiness doesn't subside even after 40 minutes. I only perceive a progression in that the pungent becomes less and less. The overall experience is simply very intense and certainly there are many who are looking for exactly that and love - I belong in this case rather not.

At least I like the kitschy, velvety bottles totally super and there seems to be an overall artful concept behind it with this "on the face" character, which in turn gives the whole thing a better classification as an intentional performance of the overloaded and appeases me at least as an aesthete.
I guess there always has to be a counter-experience to everything: instead of tender, gentle, subtle and mystical, it's a lot, loud and over the top. In any case, I must be better prepared for this in the future with these grenades, if I should, despite everything, dare to go further.
Because one thing is for sure: Even if it is too crass now, it can be different another time. One should always remain open to new impressions.

The opening is nuclear, fruity and sweet, cloying and overwhelming. After 2 hours, although linear, it becomes bearable but still synthetic.
