Grumpy Monday: Ex Vinis Fragrances and a Prize Draw
From the least to the most unappealing:
Ribes Rubrum - S-Perfume 100% Love on steroids (the most interesting of the six scents- an appealing blend of drunken cranberries and fairly dirty musk)
Anthemis Nobilis - an overpriced budget version of Yatagan
Armeniaca Vulgaris - vanilla, in big doses probably indeed Vulgaris
Piper Officinarum - a fruity-woody scent spoiled by the presence of overly fresh notes, i.e. bergamot and lime, the duo that turned many a good composition into generic "drugstore" concoctions
Rubus Idaeus - Masculinus Genericus
Ananas Sativa - clean-smelling room freshener covering bathroom aromas
Moral of the story: gimmicks in perfume almost never work.
