Zdravetz is fruity, bright, and crisp against some Monserrat flair. The story is about the Bulgarian zdravetz plant. (Found in the Bulgaria mountains, it mostly has some floral tendencies of rose and geranium, sweetly herbaceous, but with some earthy woody rootiness. It has a reputation in the Balkan region as being an aphrodisiac.) It does give off a geranium vibe, but the rose oil is the key to making this come together with metallic citrus that calls attention to itself.
This perfume wants to be looked at. It is brash, flashy, and people don’t know why but want to continue figuring out what is happening to their minds as the nose delivers whiffs of bliss. Passion fruit is linear (I may be biased against this after wearing Rasa the day before).
In the heart, the citrus fades, and the florals remain with some green coming in. The geranium gets stronger while the rose and passionfruit stay intertwined, providing for a smooth transition. The fragrance sweetens in the base with a linear vanilla and leathered wood. I get hints of Tom Ford’s F**cking Fabulous here. Sort of like Armor-All on your leather seats in heat, that kinda vibe. It’s not bad; it smells clean. Imagine also a cedar interior in the car.
I smell the Bruno DNA in the air, particularly from Monserrat, but it can be found in most of his perfumes. It’s a sort of France-meets-San Francisco sillage.
