Happy, sunny and warm, very summery!
Luca Turin was right in defining Azemour as a 5 stars perfume in his book Perfumes: 2018.
Quote in review on Parfum d'Empire - Azemour of Bois de Jasmin:
"Azemour is easy to wear and has the casual feel of a citrus cologne which makes it equally appropriate for both men and women. It feels uplifting on a winter morning and refreshing on a balmy summer evening. Like other Parfum d'Empire fragrances, it has great lasting power on me - the citrusy brightness wears off quickly, but the moss and musk linger on my skin for hours. Whatever the changes that I experience from Azemour, one thing remains constant, from shimmering top to the languid drydown, it's an elegant and polished perfume. Azemour is deliciously salty and savory. When the composition opens up on the peppery leaves and bergamot, I imagine a watercress salad tossed with lemon juice and green olive oil. Once the composition reaches its mossy drydown, it has a saline brightness that reminds me of thin focaccia covered with crunchy salt flakes. The beauty of Azemour is that while it suggests a gourmand impression, it never registers as a foody perfume."

Elegant. Polished. A perfect balance of refreshing citrus hovering against moss and warm woods. Peppery leaves and bright bergamot. Salty and savory, suggesting crunchy salt flakes on rosemary flatbread while never becoming gourmand. Cocooned about a softened heart of orange blossom. Azemour is transparent and radiant from shimmering top to the marvelous lingering persistence of its drydown.
Eerst een korte uitbarsting van een fris, sappige maar natuurlijke Citrus geur. Het parfum veranderd snel naar iets pittiger, kruidiger en donkerder geur. De Citrus tonen blijven aanwezig tijdens de hele levensduur van de geur maar niet overheersend. De geur heeft ook een fluwelige zachtheid. Het doet me denken aan een warme, zachte zeewind waar de geuren van Citrus en kruidig hooi op mee worden gevoerd.
Dit is het zomerparfum waar ik naar zocht. Desalniettemin kan ik de verleiding van het ontdekken niet weerstaan sinds ik de parfums van Annindriya heb leren kennen. Parfums met herkenbare natuurlijke geurakkoorden die samen iets onverwachts en magisch vormen.
