Head In The Clouds. Gilda
Niche fragrance Head In The Clouds. Gilda reflects the spirit of retro, with old-fashioned does not sin. White flowers, aldehydes, tenderness.
The story takes place in 1930's England and Spain and Paris in the last days of Nazi occupation. It tells us about two people's lives. They are Guy Malone and fascinating and seductive Gilda Besse whose beauty has clouded Guy's mind.
Gilda's letter to Guy:
'Well, my love, I'm trying to make sense of things...of how I was, and how I am now. I have always believed our first duty is to ourselves... to live life to the full.
But I have also been haunted by another conviction... that everything is preordained, lying in wait... and time is running out. I seem to have charged through my life in a kind of panic.
And looking back... I feel I have achieved little of worth
beyond our friendship: yours and mine, and Mia's. Then one day I woke... and found I had lost the two people I cared for most. Only then did I begin to realize that we cannot live alone, aloof from the world... and that to believe we cannot fight against fate is an act of surrender. You were right when you said that once I cared for your opinion of me... but wrong in thinking I ever stopped caring. I love you.'

The official classification is white aldehyde, and that is how it sounds. Only not vintage, from the mid-20th century, but rather from the 90s. He has a neater base, many white-flowered shades - jasmine, lily of the valley, magnolia and lily at the start. Aldehydes are not too aggressive and do not greatly affect the sound. Inside there are woody notes with musk, which wrap all this with a cocoon, again in the fashion of the period. The bonus is a certain edge of purity in musk, which holds back the aroma, not allowing it to show its notes in all its glory.
After an hour, he will get rid of aldehydes and a small humidity of the start, wake up tuberose and produce a more persistent cream magnolia that changes its type of sound. They will merge with woody notes, which can be called sandalwood, but this is conditional, it is not authentic sandalwood, rather some sort of density. Fitted tightly, it calms down to the base, becoming less thick. And a little warmer, the final episode, after 6-7 hours will be the addition of warm amber. Of course, all this is done in the key of women's fragrances, not unisex. This period is not my favorite, and the fragrance does not go beyond it. Assembled neat, soft disclosure.
