Reviews of Julia

A perfume all real life Julias can safely stay away from – an ineffectual vegetal floral (rather than the fruity floral suggested by the notes) that carries a distinct whiff of the water in a vase of flowers that has been standing for a week.
There is a good tart rhubarb recreation in the mix and something peppery, but the florals are just dull and blurred and the fruit notes almost imperceptible. The nose perceives this as highly synthetic, which was surely not the intention.

Julia is a heady fruity floral. It is interesting that citrus notes are listed in the base because I could swear they were evident already on the top. The main accord as far as I can tell is cherry blossom although this is not listed at all. Another feeling I get is that of good old fashioned but refined hair spray. Julia is potent, with excellent silage and longevity. If you are in love with this creation by TC but find it too pricy, then why not try Eau des Jardins or Eau Ensoleillante by Clarins. Julia reminded me very much of one of the two but I cannot recall exactly which one. All and all Julia is another beauty by Cabanel.

Hegoa by Teo Cabanel is a really nice, delicate, clean floral scent of the “white-rosey-greenish” family, with a juicy heart of rose and tea – really recognisable and well executed, a simple and graceful combo well blended with the cozy warmth of amber and vanilla. That’s it. It feels “small and cozy” like a small cottage in the countryside, with a feel of peace and unpretentious refinement all over. And also, quite “childlike” somehow: for some reasons – I guess its bright and gentle “white-roseness” together with the intimate sweetness of tea and amber – Hegoa smells really lively, carefree, “innocent” and slightly naif – like one of those vintage illustrations of country children playing with cats you see on tin cans for biscuits or coffee. “Arcadian”, if that makes sense. A bit dull and cutesy perhaps (and overall not that far from some designer scents playing the same chords), but really pleasant and nice to wear.

As soon as I opened the bottle, I knew this was going to be trouble... sure enough- the fruit notes in this fragrance somehow managed to smell sour and fermented at the same time- really disappointing

One me Julia opens with a vibrant fruity floral and dry downs to a slightly powdery fruity sweetness with a warm note of sandalwood and musk. Lovely for a warm evening out.
