Minimalist uncluttered TRUE bergamot
I have a great deal of fondness for Malin & Goetz, though I recognize that their scents can be polarizing...it seems they inspire a love - hate dichotomy rather than a more inclusive continuum from love , working down degrees at a time to hate. I had been incredibly eager to try cannabis, having already been familiar with many of the M&G products, and while I enjoyed it, ultimately I had been more enamored with the IDEA and the description than the actually scent. Ac- I suppose...undeterred and fueled in part by a very true, lifelong love of real bergamot essential oil, I tried their version- IT DOESNT disappoint. I found it to be straightforward and unpretentious. The bergamot scent doesn?t get obscured or overwhelmed by unnecessary or competing hues. Minimalist, natural, straightforward, and uncomplicated. Classic and clean and accessible. Furthest it could be from low quality/ cheap, but neither is it an overwhelming, heady sickening attempt at smelling pretentious and sophisticated.
( let me allow a few qualifications- a caveat -should you forge ahead reading...I cannot say I fully subscribe to the idea that words can ever accurately convey smell in a truly precise or meaningful way relative to the person reading the description. Everyone?s personal experience, and the perspectives they adopt-a sum accumulated through a lifetime of very subjective and rich amalgam of every sight, sound,texture, smell, though, ETC AD INFINITUM, that they?ve ever encountered -inevitably will shape and color what?s I?ve written to fit their schema, in ways I can?t anticipate or prevent. If it helps at all to give my review context, in a nutshell...I?m an avid traveler, reader, live music enthusiast, unabashed hippie, activist, in love with the cósmic journey and everything in it. One love, no judgment and getting in sync with the flow of the universe. My faves are Histoires des Parfums 1969, patchouli, Amber, bergamot, Marc jacobs marc Jacobs, MJ Honey, Gucci Rush, gap grass, Givenchy simply irresistible, etc<<<<my hope is that may make my review more readily understood >>
