I decided to review two of the Six scents I own and don’t wear. 🙂 It feels wrong wearing something that was only made in sets of 2000 bottles and won’t be around when I finish my bottles. But, I’ll be definitely wearing Urban Tropicalia (no 1) when the summer comes. So, I’ll start with that one.
That one starts with a right fruit blast. I mean that in a good way because, first I love all kinds of fruit but one of my favorites is definitely green apple, so you can imagine I adore the first sniff of this one that smells like green apple and the cassis is a nice balancing touch. It makes me positively salivate and feel hungry when I smell it. It just feels happy and sunny and in my opinion is going to be great for summer because it has this sour, citrusy hint that makes it in my opinion bring freshness and breeziness to a summer day. This fruity smell lasts quite long and in the drydown it lessens somewhat (although hints of apple can still be traced) and smells soft, white and floral.
Official notes: Erogenous Cedar wood – Amber Fond, Lemon, Cassis De Bourgeons, Lime, Green, Apple, Apricot, Jasmine, Tagete, Freesia, Cinnamon, Musk
The other one I have is No. 4 – Diagonal. Well, that one is certainly difficult to decipher. It feels like quicksilver, you just start to form an opinion and it changes. My thoughts about it change as well, but honestly even if I’m not sure I will be able to wear it, it is so strange that I can’t help but be fascinated by it. I love the fact that I smell pepper in this grey combination (that’s how it feels in my head) and you can feel hints of pepper for quite long. Smelling pepper and black tea, I start thinking it might get heavy on the senses but it successfully skirts that and never gets there. I start liking what I smell because underneath that pepper something airy surfaces and then a minute later I’m no longer sure because suddenly it disturbs my stomach. 🙂 Strange, interesting scent. I’ll be sniffing it more in days to come to see if I can decipher more of it. The drydown is not difficult on the stomach anymore and since I don’t know how either amyris or palissander smell like, all I can say is there is a hint of some floral sweetness but really, just a hint. I would definitely recommend this one just sniffing for impressions.
Notes listed: Dill, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Palissander, Black Tea, Amyris, White Amber, Musk
Since I own bottles of both and to celebrate the fact that I have already written my third real review and passed the number of 10 posts, I’m giving 5 ml decants of the two and if you would like to participate, just leave a comment. The winner will be announced on April 30.
