Mistral - Wild Blackberry
I haven´t had any blackberry-favorite scent. Blackberry in perfume usually become either too jammy sweet or too perfumed. Blackberry have a aromatic, perfumed scent by them self actually. And, it isn´t that often I feel like smelling like blackberries, or fruit-and berry notes over all, they aren´t among my favorites in perfumes. But still, I´ve got my strawberry-orange-plum and peach favorite scents.
And now I have found my fav-blackberry! Namely Wild Blackberry from Mistral. http://www.mistralsoap.com/ Mistral is a compnay that offers soaps, bath-and body products, but also seven different eau de parfums.
Appearantly, Wild Blackberry consist of four different berries, but I can smell three of them, blackberry, blueberry and black currant, but the fourth escapes my nose. The scent of berries are soft, but still noticable and the sweetness is held back by lemon and orange. The citruses give Wild Blackberry a nice tart scent. And the berries are really delicious, creamy and also, refreshing. The grenadine-note I can´t smell, but the violet leafs that shows up are so prominent. I think the violet leafs gives Wild Blackberry a complexity that is much more than you pay for. I get both surprised and impressed.
The violet leafs gives a wild, green feeling but also with some floral, powdery violet and that together with the citruses and berries, well so much prettier, comfortable and easier to like it can´t be. I think it is a a true comfort-scent, and both my daughters love it.
Wild Blackberry is soft, almost transparent, but you won´t forget that you wears it. Staying power is also better than what I expect, and the base note are nice with musk and vanilla, even though you still can smell the berries and violet leafs.
A while ago I wrote about the perfume oils from Smell Bent, scents that ws quite easy and straight forward, but very happy and moodlifting. Mistral´s Wild Blackberry is also such a mood lifting and happy little scent. I become rally happy that perfume can be so uncomplicated, cherful, easy to like, but still with an unique personality.
