When in 2009 Emperor Eau de toilette was released, the bottle of which is presented below, this caused a great resonance among the public, and the responses were rather ambiguous: someone applauded standing, someone called this creation a sour rhubarb compote. How can we explain both boundless love and cold non-acceptance by the public at the same time? Of course, such a brand as "Dolce Gabbana" obliges to something refined. And the name itself pretends to the grandeur and chic royalty. So, does the Empress's toilet water correspond to its name?
Somehow it's wrong to start with a negative, but most of those who did not like the fragrance, to put it mildly, branded it as a mass-market cheapie, a catalog version, a watermelon "Orbit" and so on and so on.
Although here it's not in the fragrance itself, but in the dissonance of form and content. And this strangeness lies in the following: Naomi Campbell in the promorick, the loud name of the fragrance and the tandem Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are already at the subconscious level set up that from under the cap of the bottle there will be something divine, majestic, rich, corresponding to the chic era And glamor.
And for some reason it seems that the fragrance should always be evening. But no, the first notes lead to surprise and disappointment. Someone will ask again, they say, is this really the same Emperor's toilet water?
Error perfume house
They say, as the ship is called, so it will float. Is this true for the flavor in question? Having given such a loud name, the perfumers of "Dolce Gabbana" probably hoped that it would attract buyers in and of itself.
So it happens. But the same name served the spirits of a disservice: instead of focusing on the very fragrance, quite decent and feminine, most people are looking for an explanation for such a binding title and leave without finding it. It is even said that the empress's servant smells so, and not the mistress of life herself.
And it's not that the smell is bad (although this definition is subjective in any case), simply entourage in any case obliges. But everything could be different: the name is more modest, advertising is not so pretentious, - and, probably, this toilet water would not be judged so severely.
But what about the essence of the fragrance itself?
In the upper notes are placed pink pepper, kiwi and rhubarb, in the heart are jasmine, watermelon and cyclamen, and in the base - musk, sandalwood and lemon tree. Accordingly, this fragrance belongs to the group of flowers and water. The ingredients are chosen very competently.
At first, a juicy pepper is heard, then the smell of a watermelon-lemon sweet crack. But there is no cloying here, only all-consuming freshness. A trail of the same lemonade caliber. "Derevyachki" from the base barely perceptible.
But there are also such noses, which in the "Empress" managed to smell the creamy tenderness and flowing aroma of sweet milk. Someone discovers peaches or olives, which are not claimed in the composition, (this, probably, kiwi gives such an effect). Others imagine the apple orchard in the early summer, when the fruit is still green and sourish. This is the merit of rhubarb.
Stability and Loop
Floral water aromas, to which the Empress's toilet water belongs, are usually light in perception by others and do not stifle with a train. The ideal time for this perfume is spring-summer, it is especially good after a warm rain. Although in winter it is pleasant to hear the smell of delicious watermelon lemonade.
This smell is not at all straining the sense of smell, it does not hurt the head, except from large concentrations. So for working indoors - the very thing. It is also comfortable for active recreation, and for evening walks. As they say, for all occasions. An additional but significant plus.
The strength of the toilet water is medium, basically it lasts 6 hours, then it needs to be updated. The train is also small, that is, the aroma is heard maximum in the radius of the outstretched arm.
