The eternal old lyre!
A new evening, a new comment!
You know, I don't have to tell you that by now, with a few small exceptions there is a new description of the fragrance every day (or every evening, is there actually the word??) as usual. And yes, I'm babbling or talking something here, that's just my thing... who doesn't like it, he or she has to read my Kommis net (but nevertheless they immediately click on "not helpful" without reading,... do you think I wouldn't have noticed that? You nasty, unsympathetic worms! :D).

Well then, I'm going to talk a little about the scent again before I describe how it smells to me. Well... the scent is called lira. This does not mean that the fragrance was named after the Turkish lira or the former Italian lira, but after an ancient plucked instrument, the lyre. Also better known under the term "lyre", which probably led to the development of "the old lyre", which colloquially stands for repeated (sometimes annoying) utterances (similar to my former fear when testing women's scents or my typical phrases like "Boah, you have to smell women delicious to bite with"! and so on :D). Because even the lyre or lyre had only a few strings to play, so that it was usually limited to a few pitches and one had often heard the same or similar, monotonous sounds and melodies.

So much for the lyre, but at least you're all a little smarter now, aren't you? D
But now to the fragrance, which according to the descriptions is supposed to be a kind of star or starlet, which should appear mysterious and provocative in its appearance. Well, let's see!

The fragrance:
The fragrance starts with a great blood orange, which gives a short, citric effect. Then, however, a rather intense, cinnamony-vanilla note appears, which, as always, provides a powdery, soft and sweet scent and also lets the scent of cookies and biscuits and so scents :)
Yes, the fragrance is really delicious :D
Through the lavender one can smell bitter smells, these are however a little weakly precipitated. The vanilla disappears a little into the background from the heart note (but it will surely appear again), so that you can smell the lavender a little better. It also makes the cinnamon smell better, as well as the woody notes and a little later the caramel. And as I said, the vanilla becomes stronger again later.
By the way, the scent is powdery sweet and you can smell the vanilla the most here, but if you smell more at the sprayed place, the tangier scents like lavender appear more intense. I think it's nice that you can still smell nice, fruity scents from the top note in the scent cloud from time to time.
Soo, in the base the scent becomes as expected even more powdery and sweeter, because the vanilla returns now again or it becomes stronger again and smells much stronger, well... just like vanilla :D
Whereby in the base also a little musk is added, and the fragrance not 100% only smells of vanilla, and I think that's good, so at least a small, but fine change is added.
But... how could it be any different, after several hours one really only smells vanilla :D

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The charisma is strong and you leave behind a nice, larger scent cloud, which lasts a while and is therefore good to smell.
The shelf life is very good, the fragrance literally lasts from morning until late evening or even deep into the night, depending on how much you have dosed it.

The bottle:
The bottle is as high quality as ever. It is thin and high and widens in height. It ends at the upper part in an arch and thus looks like an antique column, except that the flacon appears somewhat wider than these columns. On the front you can see a label with a portrait of a woman (the Starlet??). The gilded lid has a beautiful shape and reminds somehow of royal headgear of ancient Lower Egypt. A beautiful bottle, even if the brown colour of the bottle might not please everyone.

Okay, so I think the scent is great. I liked the top note best, because you can smell a nice blood orange, but also the rest of the fragrance is of course very beautiful. The scent is vanilla-heavy as usual, whereby the fruity notes from the beginning can be smelled in the scent cloud a little later, and the scent does not immediately smell of vanilla at least in the first few hours :)
Besides, he's got pastries like cookies, biscuits or cakes. I like that, even if I shouldn't wear such a scent myself. Still, it's a delicious, pleasant scent that makes you look forward even more to wintery events like Christmas, or at least makes winter more bearable if you should be a snow hater (yes, I said "hater", not snow hare :DD) Some of you don't like the cold days! Although somewhat understandable, I find them more bearable than brutal summer days, especially during a heat wave...).

Well, of course the fragrance is usable especially in winter (or autumn), it can be used as a low-dose everyday fragrance or as a deliciously biteable scent (I told you, that's my saying, my old lyre!).

Well, I think you could try the scent for a change. The only criticism is that it's not really worth the price. Because, as I said, you smell a lot of vanilla, but so many other fragrances also smell, and that at a much cheaper price and also high quality and good. Here you probably just pay for the brand, so to speak... like with some Roja or Amouage fragrances, hopefully you know what I mean. That everything is high quality, but should be clear here, of course, so fans of the brand or those who want it can gladly test and access :)

Well, that's that, then. For today. See you tomorrow! :D

Very helpful Review 24  
Lira makes men soft
Now I sit here at these few lines to record my thoughts.
A good bourbon in my glass, lira on my skin and from the Marshall Box sounds in the background "Chris Stapleton" with his for my feeling most beautiful song "Tennessee Whiskey"!

I keep going back in time to old memories... very fond memories... Love, fulfillment, lightness Nothing, but also nothing negative to think about, as with lira.
To say it with some lines from the song by Chris Stapleton:

1. You're as SMOOTH as Tennessee whiskey
2. You're as SWEET as strawberry wine
3. You're as warm as a glass of brandy 4. And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
A fragrance that is not complicated, noble by its simplicity! On each woman, a poem of sensuality and warmth... to melt away.
Lira fills the space around you, but not in the intrusive way!
Lira also comes rather to stay a little longer, she is not in a hurry, at least that's how it is with me.

Yes, yes Lira is already a poem. I just can't resist her, and yes, I like to wear lira as well.

Clear recommendation for this perfume!!

When the postal worker eats you up
To Lira I have already made a statement, but now I have to tell a nice story about this wonderful fragrance again.

After I got hold of a sample of Lira - thanks at this point to the dear Parfuma - I had to test him immediately. A day later, it was clear, I must have him, because the sample would definitely not last long. No sooner said than done, ordered fragrance, it was delivered quickly and I could now spray myself with it without restraint, ...in the home office, for a walk with the dog, for bumming on the couch and for bringing packages to the post office (I know, very exciting my life at the moment :-D)
So... i was freshly fogged with lira two consecutive days at the post office to mail packages. The nice woman at the store already knows me, but we hadn't talked much before. Mostly there was a nice "hello, ah another package, all right. have a nice day". The usual small talk. On the said second day I had put on Lira again. I handed in my parcel, was about to pay, when she looks at me and says: "Ah, there it is again the smell. Even yesterday when you were in the shop it smelled so delicious. I don't even know what it smelled like, but I was really hungry for lemon cake." :-D
Since that day, she is always happy when I come to the store because "it would always smell so good when I was there". Just compliments like that just make me happy.

So and now to the fragrance:
I think the woman at the post described it very aptly with her lemon pie perception.
Lira is definitely a beautiful gourmand.
The scent starts off very tangy with the blood orange note. Don't let that put you off (if you find that note too heavy), as it quickly subsides and is joined by this wonderful caramel cinnamon vanilla biscuit note that gives it that lemon cake vibe.

I think Lira stands out from other gourmands in this vein. The lavender listed is minimal for me to smell. Rose and jasmine I do not necessarily perceive so, but I think they give this fragrance its noble aura, Exactly what makes Lira suitable for everyday use for me. Edible but in a grown up way.

Lira lasts about 6-8 hours on my skin and is definitely very noticeable by the environment for 4-5 hours.

So, anyone who is looking for a nice gourmand, I can definitely recommend Lira. Not too sweet, gentle but still present. One of the noblest Gourmands I have smelled so far

Fruity caramel spring gourmand dream
This scent is definitely not for candy scorners. But if you are looking for an extremely tasty gourmand that, in contrast to many other fragrances of this genus, is also perfectly wearable on springlike days and somewhat cooler summer nights, then Lira from the Casamorati 1888 series is the right choice for you. This is mainly due to the wonderfully juicy and natural looking blood orange, which skilfully loosens up the very sugary sweetness of the caramel vanilla melange especially in the first 1-2 hours and radiates a spring-like yet always distinguished aura.

After the fruity-sweet initial phase, caramel and vanilla begin to assert themselves more and more as the main protagonists of the fragrance. This however - and this is what I particularly like about Lira - without being penetrating or completely exuberant. The gourmand fragrance itself is an absolute dream for all sweet toothers and should not leave the surroundings cold. In any case, the quality of the ingredients used is immediately noticeable.

As far as the occasion is concerned, the fragrance is, in my opinion, predestined for festive evening events, but can still be worn universally without any problems. Only in the summer heat of the day the caramel sweetness is a bit too much.

A tip for the gourmand fans among the men: Even if marked as a ladies fragrance, Lira is for me easily wearable as a (younger) man - as long as you are not into ultra-masculine macho fragrances, of course. All in all, Lira is one of the best gourmands I've ever had under my nose. Only the durability disappoints me a little with about 6-7 hours

I've never smelled anything so beautiful...
The samples have finally arrived. Unsuspectingly I spray a little on the test strips provided... First of all a big disappointment. I smell almost nothing, almost nothing... A little blood orange without deep... Smell irritated again after 5 minutes on the strips, still zero... ? Tip: Don't spray this scent on a test strip but on the skin...

Well, I'll try the scent on my skin. Hmmm, enthusiasm is very limited. Blood orange again, very weak, not much else.. Well, sample put away.. After 10 minutes something magic happens. I sit on the sofa and read... Wow, what happens now..... I suddenly take an incredibly nice smell was. I've never smelled anything so beautiful in my life without exaggerating. I can't describe how unique and unmistakably beautiful this fragrance unfolds on the skin. The longer the fragrance unfolds and melts into the skin, the more magical this fragrance becomes...

As I said, it starts with blood orange, which is weak and disappears completely in the background very quickly. Then comes the magic moment. The heart notes develop and they are beautiful to die for. I smell rose and jasmine only very faintly but liquorice and cinnamon in such a creamy way that it catapults me to the sky. Kind of reminds me of my childhood. A warm Danish apple pie with cinnamon and a scoop of vanilla ice cream... All the while a liquorice smell hovers over these notes. After a while, the base notes become caramel, musk and vanilla.

I've only ever tasted it on my skin. Saturday will show what the shelf life and the silage is like. If the Sillage is top, Santa Claus has to bring this scent for me. Absolutely !!!

Very gourmand scent, a creamy lemon in the opening. A floral blended with caramel, vanilla and an addictive cinnamon. Perfectly unisex, imo.
