Reviews of Nature

'Nature' is a very nostalgic scent for me, and I therefore have a hard time 'looking' at it critically. My mother wore it in Germany in the early/mid nineties, and it became emblematic for me, of intellectual, fashionable, alternative, health-conscious Berlin collegiate culture. It always struck me as the non-perfume perfume, more plant than flowers -- and thus totally avant "garden" ;) -- and yet, almost as if by magic, very sensual and warm, regardless.

Smelling it now, I can rationally recognize the structure of classic fragrance in its both its development and chypric, mossy drydown.
But I am still very impressed by its unique ability to be both not-at-all "perfumey" (In fact, it's very herbal and 'salty' [I think it must have a hefty dose of liquorish!].) and still very seductive & totally "feminine".

'Nature' is all about the moss, to the degree that I imagine lichens in a woodland each time I inhale it, and moreover, its salty aspects seem to evoke some sort of peculiar,heady mushrooms growing in the same wood.

To me, it actually smells quite similar to Caron's 'Aimez-Moi'. If you can imagine 'A-M' with less anise, more old-school, powdery sillage, less self-importance and far more verdant bite, you have got a rough idea of it.

A totally yummy, lush, green-lover's green. And an all-time favorite of mine.

Ouf, I got this stuff accidently on my hand, I waited for a minute, but the smell didn't get better, so I ran over to the sink to wash Nature right off of me.

It smells like dirty old man with greasy hair! Its unbelieveble! Maybe my miniature was a bit old, though. Anyway, if you want to smell like nature, use something else.
