When I swap perfume(samples) I use to have a coupple of perfumes that I really, really look forward to try and a coupple of perfumes that i think is interesting, but also maybe one or two not so interesting either because I never have heard of them or because they´ve failed to make me interested of some reason.
When the little parcel arrive I tend to jump straight to the most interesting ones, try them and go ooooh and aaaah, and sniff and smile or in some cases just shudder in dissapointment. Since I´ve got quite a big deal of samples in my mailbox the one´s I am not that interested in tend to remain untested for a time. Because more interesting one´s arrive all the time.
But, once in a while, when I am a little more curious and experimental I try some of the samples from the left over-box. It may be the most amazing perfume in the world! One can never be sure when it come to perfumes, and thats what so amazing with perfumes I think.
Linga Sharira was a small surprise sample that was enclosed in a swap some time ago. Together with some great perfumes as Estee Lauder´s Amber Ylang Ylang and L'Instant Guerlian it isn´t that strange that Linga Sharira wasn´t in center of attention. Until a coupple of days ago!
But oooooooh! And aaaaah! What is this amazing perfume!? It is different yet it remind me of some of my absokute favourite perfumes. A while it is ghostly like Ava Luxe´s Nude Musk, but then in the next moment it remind me more of Dolce & Gabbana´s Siciliy or maybe it´s Parfumerie Generale´s Felinilla, no most definitly Le Labo´s Labdanum 18. Honestly Linga Sharira reminds of all of these wonderful perfumes, it is like they´re all blended together in a most adorable way.
Linga SHarira is filled with light, creamyness, some tart almost brisk notes, something slightly medical, powdery. clean and yet something just a little dirty. The longvity is amazing, it´s still lingers around me when I wake up, and that is after putting just some tiny drops on at around 6 at night. Yes, just a few drops, it´s strong also. And sexy, sensual, magnetic and enchanting.
But what is Linga Sharira anyway? trying to find information on the net, all I manage to find was a site with hebrew, the google-translation didn´t get me much wiser. Just a little, appearantly it is an israeli women that all her life dreamed about creating her own perfume, and finally made it. And congrats, you have create a really good one! I have tried to make contact with the one I swapped the sample with, but still not got an answer from her.
My guess is that some of the notes might be; some citrus, vanilla, labdanum, honey, jasmine, musk and sandalwood. Whatever notes there is, it is amazing, lingering and glowing. I guess it isn´t easy to get, looks like it´s only available in Israel. Otherwise I would need more of it, or I still do, but I guess it can be some challenge to get it!
Sometimes when trying new perfumes and I´ve got 4-5 boring, not so interesting even badsmelling ones in a row I long for a well-knowned perfume, something safe and secure. When trying Linga Sharira I had recently tried about 3-4 not that speciel perfumes, Linga Sharira was a longshot, turned out to be a real treasure. When dabbing it on it was like see the light in the end of the tunnel, the test of boring perfumes was definitly over!
Thank you N!
