How? I Apply the Fragrance

3 to 9 spraye

A very clean Accord. This is so nice off my skin from the get go. It smells like a super clean room. I have smelled this in hotels before like almost right after the maid is finished with the room. The window is open. This is from high end hotel if that helps reminds me of my stay at the Ritz in Maui. Walking down into the enormous lobby. An izone sniff that is reminiscent of after rain. I get a soft green apple note. I get the sweetness everyone talks about, but I don't pick up the cotton candy I have heard a lot about. More of a Taffy for me the kind being made right next to the cotton candy.. Power projection. I went to coffee dried up and put on as close to half a spray as possible. And I think I drown out a couple people. They even shut the door where food was being prepared. Oops, maoit wasn't me and if it was I blame Francis. This is definitely it's own fragrance for that alone a major collection would be happy with this original piece. For me it brackets on that price range I really reflect if I want it in mine. Is it occasion worthy, which one's Can I wear it throughout the day without worrying about offending people. Will it drown me out in a workout I could see this as a possible conference fragrance, but it's competing with a few others and how will half the conferences I go to I can spray this on while i'm there. The dry down starts in only about 90 minutes. (Yikes how much was this fragrance?). The projection is still prominent. fai whiffs of the top hang around.. The Maison DNA it's an easy dry down full of a synthetic backbone. Kinda like an aquatic Oriental. It's a decent composition that compliments it's base and top choice a lot more than your left with. But you are left with the dry down for quite awhile so it's something you need to make sure you like. I still don't have my mind made up if I want to spend all day with this. In a conference fragrance it's easy enough to be pleasing to everyone off my skin and I move enough for it not to bother me. I again get that Maui feeling with this in that MFK house accord.

    1. Hello Mazhar. The Extrait versions of oud sating mood and baccarat rouge 540 will last a decent amount of time. Another one that is available that lasts me a long time is Oud Luwak by Areej le Dore. There is a review of that one on this channel. For the longest lasting I always look for perfumes labeled in an extrait version.

    2. The EDP version of Oud Satin Mood lasts very long too. 12 hours. And Noir Ambré, Or Encens, Interlude and Kenzo Elephant. But it really depends on the climate of the country where you live. The air humidity and how much the sun shines. The best climate for perfumes to last long is rather high air humidity without strong sun and not too hot. We have this in Germany sometimes and my perfumes last very long then. @Therapeutic Fragrance

  1. The cutting of videos can be very tiring sometimes… I've written on Facebook today that the last video took me 6,5 hours to film and edit… Yes. No joke. It takes SO much time often… I just talk way too much and have to edit it down then. There is 50 cuts in some of my videos. LOL! I hope I can make more shorter videos in the future with less editing. 🙂 BR 540 is a very pleasant scent and it's true that it's quite safe. People like it, love it, complliment on it… But the price is crazy. I don't think that it's worth the price. Interesting that you like the opening the most 🙂 Thumb up 🙂

    1. LOL, I need to go see facebook post. I am trying to get these down into 3 or 4 segments so people can skip to what they care about. I am now working on creating graphics for each of those sections, that is really tying me up. I decided if I just didn't start video everything I had I never would, so decided to do it as I go. At first I had multiple camera aspirations I have such bagged that idea. I still want to do extra special things for fragrances closest to the soul. But again so much time.

    2. Yes… I want to improve all the time too 🙂 I am very creative and have hundreds of ideas but not much time to realize them. 3-4 segments and a good structure with good graphics is always good 🙂 I love everything structured. Like I said about the Miyake. The fragrances are structured. Which camera do you use? I use my iPhone. And what is your name on Facebook?@Therapeutic Fragrance

    3. Agnes, This week had been crazy on editing. I haven't been worrying about cutting and I totally see the difference it makes. I am getting better it takes so much time lining up things, but getting rid of all my pauses is better. It's also helped my video filming knowing I can pause and get my material better. Unfortunately I am ahead 10 videos, but they are getting better and better. I know it sounds weird, but I didn't even think of cutting before you said that. My head is so stuck in photography and one frame land it's been quite the transition.
