The gift
I have a gift. And before my critics here roll their eyes, according to the motto "The old plays up again", let me briefly explain the concept of gifts... Everyone has one or more gifts, you don't choose them, you get them along the way.
There are beGifted musicians, storytellers, comforters, gardeners, hosts, artists, etc.
Some gifts are obvious, others you only recognize as you go along.
And one of my gifts is matchmaking (not driving, Knut asks) no, I'm a kind of Frisian Armor.
Supposedly I already matched the caretaker with my kindergarten teacher when I was in kindergarten, but I can't remember that.
I can kind of sense when people are a good match. I set up my bandmate with my chimney sweep, the nice bakery lady with a neighbor, college friend with sister, etc.
Honestly true, I was given flowers at weddings, I was mentioned in wedding sermons and children were named after me, no kidding ! Mostly the whole thing runs so that I initiate the woman and invite to me, while I say to the potential partner : " Come to the barbecue and on'n beer around ", that always pulls. Man is then loose, because he does not know what it's all about, and schwuppdiwupp, in 80% of cases " Love is in the air".
Now I was thinking, while I'm testing "By the Fireplace", whether I bring the quota to 100%
if I use my new scent skills....
'Replica- By the Fireplace' by Maison Margiela is more smell than scent in my eyes (er, nose) . The smell of campfire and sweet stuff.
That can be very attractive to certain women, if the potential male is able to make fire. Transports yet somehow an archetypal masculinity, freeze it must already times not.
The violent synthetic sweetness of vanilla, is then so'ne kind of testosterone inhibitor. Because it should not be toouu masculine, rather sweet, cuddly, understanding and cuddly. Replica' achieves this easily, the fire-maker becomes a marshmallow- understanding woman, whose shaved chest a woman likes to snuggle up to. Complex and profound he is also not, that is in the long run only exhausting with the man...
Well, you notice already, while I write here becomes clear, in my quiver belong no longer only arrows, but in any case also a sample ' Replica By the Fireplace'.
See you over sausages and beer.

This smell is an insult!
I've read a lot about him here. But when I got him under the nose of a salesman at the airport, I was really shocked.

How could someone want to smell like that, I thought? Or how can you spray that scent on yourself and not fear that someone might alert the fire department. Or the smoke alarm goes off...

In the first few seconds you really smell authentic pure smoke! Not cigarette smoke, but campfire right under your nose! With that he was directly checked off for me as a perfume.

A few weeks later I received some samples of a perfume. As soon as I entered the hallway, a sweet, smoky and super pleasant, even tasty scent came my way. When I opened the envelope, I realized that one of the tubes had opened and leaked. It was the "At The Fireplace"!

Crazy, how could a fragrance with such a deterrent top note be so delicious at the base? Now I was curious and ordered a bottling. :-)

And what can I say? The smell knocks me out. It's not just because it smells so good. But the kicker is, it's so cleverly designed. Almost like a really good magic trick. Yeah, he's got this brazen look, like a magician, leading the audience behind the light before their amazed eyes. He makes me laugh and looks snotty to me! :-)))

In the beginning is the fire, you almost want to rub your eyes because you feel as if you are wrapped in a cloud of smoke. If you hold your nose to the sprayed skin, it smells exactly like a charred piece of wood! (How do they do that? :-))

But then, when the cloud lifts, what has been conjured up comes to light. No, not a pink elephant, not even a cute white rabbit!

It's a big bowl of candy! It smells warm and deliciously of kramell and vanilla, sinfully sweet! Totally hidden and hardly noticeable, the orange blossom adds a minimal acidity, which makes it even juicier and creamier.

From here on you would like to sit in it and take a bath in it! This combination of this exuberant, delicious sweetness and the fire that continues to blaze beside it is simply so special and unique!
It's a combination you never expected and yet it fits so perfectly. For me, the most surprising fragrance of the year. He is cheeky and mischievous, he tricked me and in the end he conquered my heart!

Forever yours
My beloved by the fireplace!

Forgive me for dismissing you so hastily after our first encounter. You had blown me away with your smoky top note, I felt transported right to a real campfire. You greeted me with thick clouds of smoke, not a sooty icky one but intrusive enough that I quickly passed on the few milliliters of you. No, I thought, that with us can be nothing, too pungent-spicy you came along, you could not conquer my heart so.
For safety, however, I kept a few drops of you, maybe we could enter into a new liaison in the fall? Inwardly, however, I had already ticked you off.

Despite this bumpy first encounter, you left me restless and also a little perplexed. Had you already supposedly delighted many people with your complexity, your charm and your stunning base note, the long plays around the skin of the wearer / wearer.
I couldn't forget you, so after a few weeks I brought you out of your dark dungeon back into the light of day.
I took a deep breath and let you take a seat on my skin, which was warm with desire. As the first puffs of smoke slowly cleared, you let all your charms play out. I resisted, first steadfastly, then more and more weakly, and finally gave myself to you with skin and hair. A delicious spice let pleasant shivers run down my spine, I inhaled very deeply your intoxicating scent, and your heat warmed my heart, as no admirer before you had managed for a long time.
We spent the whole afternoon together, and as it got darker, our lovemaking started all over again, you warming me with your fire all night, and in the morning you left a creamy, slightly spicy bourbon vanilla ice cream with hot fudge sauce on my nightstand as a sweet promise to come back later. And you did come back! Several times a day I gave myself to you, and with epicurean pleasure my desire for you grew until finally I could stand it no longer, and brought you full-size to my bed, er, my perfume closet. Not another day should we be apart! My love, you caress me in a seductive way, you polarize like few others, and you enchant me every time. When we are together, my heart leaps, my nose rejoices at your spicy smokiness and luscious caramel vanilla, and my skin craves your warmth. Please don't ever leave me again, I will be forever yours!
Forever yours, J.

Beautiful smoky vanilla with a cuddly base
My latest achievement and probably the last heavy artillery for this winter. Soon you can think again about what you want to wear to spring. But since we are still in the middle of winter, this scent still fits fully into the current events.
Maison Margiela is a great brand that is of high quality and not so expensive. I have tested Jazz Club, which may also be bought and the women's fragrance Lipstick on, which is also great. Several tests of other fragrances of this brand will follow.
By the fireplace was more of a blind buy. This fragrance is indicated as a twin fragrance at Stronger with you by Emporio Armani. I can't say after tests that it's a twin, but it's going a lot in that direction. Especially the vanilla chestnut base. Since I'm looking for more of an alternative than a twin, that's quite convenient for me. Also the name and the pyramid seemed very exciting to me. So: Bought in the offer at Flaconi for about 80 Euro a 100ml. A fair price for this high quality fragrance.

The bottle's really pretty. The color of the fragrance looks already very tasty and matching the fragrance. The label's really off the hook. The Replica line all have such beautiful old school labels with typewriter look. The bottle is simple. Only the missing lid is a minus point. This could have been made more beautiful.
Especially at the opening he lives up to his name. That's pretty smoky. Not unpleasant, but more like a beautiful campfire or the romantic fireplace. In addition there are chestnuts and vanilla, which gain the upper hand stronger and stronger in the heart and base. The start is in any case very original smoky, spicy but also very gentle. The longer the scent is on the skin, the softer it becomes. Soft wood, chestnut and vanilla become presenter and presenter. Perfect for dirty days in autumn and winter. The wearing comfort on colder days is very pleasant and always a great warming companion. The base is simply very cuddly with lots of vanilla, soft wood and also balsamic hints. The smoky one from the opening is easily settling and there remains a nice soft scent, which should find few enemies. Personally, I like this DNA extremely much and I feel well accompanied on grey days and cool nights.
I also tested the performance extensively. Also a sprayer has a good Sillage and radiates well. The fragrance DNA is not too intrusive and penetrating and you can take about 4 sprayers without hesitation. The durability is a real bomb. I've come to about 15 hours. Almost too much. On clothing certainly even longer.

The fragrance is best suited for an evening on the couch with your partner or date. But it is also good for evening and leisure events in the cold season. It is also suitable for everyday use because it is not too penetrating. Always a charming companion.
Unisex is absolutely justified. If you want to smell of smoky vanilla with an extremely gentle base, you should test or buy it. I can only recommend this one.

JimJim Raggedi Baggedi Bossadi Novadi! Wa! Di! Wa! Di! Wa!
Dear Reader,
lean back and relax, because if you are allowed to believe your friends and acquaintances, I am difficult to stop when it comes to the topic "tent camp". So I'm already thanking you for hanging on.

At the age of 11 I went to the camp for the first time. Really oldschool, without running water with thunderbolts as toilets and with a campfire every evening, during which songs were smashed out of the tent camp folder - of course with several guitars. Terrain and night terrain games, night watch and banner theft due to raids from other tent camps, camp Olympics and so much more where it it itches my fingers to accommodate it...
There in this tent camp I spent two weeks of each summer with about 90 other young people between 8 and 17 years. Every year they met there again, even if they lived so far away from each other, that for the most part they only saw each other there and within these two weeks of the year. But the fact that they saw each other there was an unwritten law for most of the approx. 90 young people. Up to the age of 17 I drove now every summer as a so-called "camprist", then from the age of 18 I "ascended" to the "Vorkommando", i.e. to the supervisors. All of them former campers, whom one had known for years, with some of whom one had spent many years in the camp and with whom one then spent these three weeks of summer there. As a pre-commando they were already there a week before the young people to set up the campground, to lift the thunder beams, to beat and erect the banner mast and last but not least to celebrate. I did the whole thing for another 8 summers.
And yes, those were those special summers and experiences. Every single one. These summers, which are still being reviewed today (which I find bitter now) as the late thirties so often and so gladly in my mind...
To the campfire: as a rule the days were, quasi on free field, megaheiß. And every day there was a tent with the task of cutting and setting up the wood for the evening campfire. Almost as unpopular as the kitchen service without running water and after being cooked in giant pots for a mere 100 people in the kitchen tent. There were even more unpopular tasks. The respective tent with the most minus points in terms of cleanliness had to add the boys' and girls' thunder beams at the end of the camp.
Back to the campfire again. This smell there in the forest during the afternoon heat and while searching for and hitting the firewood and then following it the smell of the campfire which became hot in the sun and "sweating" even before the actual ignition is one of the most beautiful and perhaps also most erotic and masculine (nature) smells at all for my feeling. Of course this (in my case not least) has to do with the links.

When I first sprayed by The Fireplace, my camp reminder drawer was immediately open. I didn't just have to think about it for a moment, I had all kinds of pictures in my head. And the campfire. I had it in my head and especially in my nose. Of course not THAT or a "real" campfire. But damn close. It's enough for the memory drawer every time I spray this scent. This campfire is also mixed with other nuances, which give the whole something smooth and surprisingly unsmoky, without the campfire romanticism too much to superimpose or even destroy. Vanilla and also Cashmeran embed themselves here unbelievably well, without cheating themselves into the foreground.
In summary, this would be a warm-creamy campfire wood that is currently being ignited.

Oh well, I had already mentioned how hot it was most of the time in these summers; I'm not going to spend the thunderstorm nights with a flooded campground and sleeping of the whole camp in the 80-man-tent, because otherwise I'd never get to the end again. I can imagine very well how grandiose By The Fireplace is in the cooler and colder seasons. I discovered it in summer and I'm wearing it while I'm writing and currently at 32 degrees in Hamburg. I find it pleasant and wearable in all temperatures and I don't feel "dressed too thick". So I am very excited about autumn and winter. Perhaps then the fireplace association will also come into being, which, however, I am not missing in any way.
And even apart from my tent camp connections, By The Fireplace remains one of the most beautiful wooden scents I know of. Although I had written something about masculinity in connection with the smell of fire earlier, By the Fireplace is absolutely unisex.
for me
In conclusion, I would like to say again: I have rarely been so much ingested by a fragrance right from the first spray. I was right at home with this scent - and he with me.

For the sake of completeness and in honour of the many, many summers with the advance command only the camp battle cry:
is missing now

Sweet smoked wood. Ideal for contemplating it to yourself, when it rains or snows outside and you don't own a chimney. Cozy and relaxing.
