Niche fragrance Head In The Clouds Edgardio Chilini

Head In The Clouds


Niche fragrance of Head In The Clouds is a reflection of the retro spirit, and is not characterized by old-fashionedness. White flowers, aldehydes, tenderness.


The film takes place in the 30s of the 20th century in England, in Spain and in the last days of the occupation in Paris. The plot reveals to us the fates of two people: she is the charming and seductive Gilda Besse and he is intoxicated by the beauty of Gilda, Guy Mailon.


Letter to Gilda Guy:

“So, my love, I'm trying to figure out who I was and who I became. I always believed that most of all we should take care of ourselves and enjoy the fullness of life. But at the same time, I was persecuted by the conviction that everything in our lives was destined, no one knows when and what awaits him, and only time inexorably leaves. All these years, I ran forward in a panic. Looking back, I see that I have not found anything worthy in life except our friendship. Friendship with you and Mia. And then the day came when I woke up and realized that I had lost the people whom I loved more than anyone else. Only then did I become aware that we cannot live separately from the world that surrounds us. And the reluctance to resist fate is not fatalism, but only an acknowledgment of one’s own weakness. You were right in saying that once I valued your opinion about myself, but you were mistaken in believing that all this is already in the past. I love you."

From reviews - lively reflections:

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.
