Feedback for Alba
"Alba is creamy, thick, white flowers, jasmine and tuberose, excellent. The most tender flower cream".
(Ekaterina Vasilyeva)
"Alba is bitter and deep at first. Still young but experienced woman comes to mind, she is feasting at rich table. Splendid flowers, fruit, even vine. This perfume is much like Harem in base, they both have the same chord of spicy flower and rose. What is it – gardenia? I liked the start very much, then the fragrance seemed familiar to me and later I only tried to find its analog.".
(Mila Verbova)
"Alba is beautiful white flowers. Gardenia and tuberose by Estee Lauder, but a bit softer and lighter. The flowers do not appear at once, one should wait for them a bit. I'd gladly wear it in Spring!".
(Elena Postnikova)
"Alba. "If there's no end, there can be no beginning" I feel spice from the vial. Some kind of flowers on skin (does yellow jasmin make this a bit viscous bitterness?) The fragrance seems anxious, it did not fit me. That's why it scares me a little and makes nervous. Or maybe one of the ingredients provokes a physical reaction. Like ginger tea. I can't drink any of it, I start suffocating and my heart beats madly. Don't think that the fragrance disgusts me, no way".
(Elena Klimanova)
"A garland of jasmine with small flowers they wear in Thailand (or they put it on tourists' necks there), with a bit of ylang-ylang and maybe yuzu. I also feel some light bitter tea or almond, but it is not so obvious as in In Love. Light, quite weightless veil, very intimate fragrance. It probably includes white musk. The base is green tea with jasmine. Very light and full of air, peaceful and meditative fragrance. Women have many occasions it will be suitable for. For self and very intimate people".
(Lark123sib)
"This perfume feels like aureate, a bit retro, with animalic note, and flowers come out through. It is transparent, light and charming. Jasmine, tuberose? Becomes quiet on skin very soon, flowery and tender".
(Zoya Grigoryeva, Dead whore7)
"What an interesting fragrance… It puzzles at once. Enormous flowers of ylang? Like lollipop. Sweet and sour, slightly mawky. Sounds like crystal. I seemed to feel powder in the dressing room. Big flowers of jasmine grandiflorum flowering at night. I've read that the name is translated as Sunrise… It is more of twilight for me".
(Nina Novitskaya)

Harem

Harem Acidica perfumes
Harem Acidica perfumes открытка акварели Анна Закревская
Watercolor by Anna Zakrevskaya
Description: semi-synthetic, oriental, flowery, woody

Main notes: gardenia, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, musk, saffron

Oriental fantasy. Languid beauties, smoking incense, icy sherbet and intricate scent of mysterious garden inside Raja's palace. Spice, jasmine, ylang and musk create the magic oriental fairy tale. White flowers with musk, intimate fragrance speaking in low warm voice of unknown pleasures. Flowers soon become luxurous sandalwood with delicate green note.

Feedback for Harem

"Harem is much more interesting than I expected. Standard oriental motives – amber, soft brown leather, rose are mixed with something green and spicy that makes the composition authentic and light".
(Ekaterina Vasilyeva)
"Harem – something strange happened to it. I don't like it on my skin, like medicine and leather not only from the start but later too, though some hours later warm wood appeared. Oh, how I like the tail… Sweet tender flowers of my childhood. I remember them well, they grow on meadow and smell tarn and a bit of honey. I'm enjoying it from the distance…"
(Elena Postnikova)
"Harem revealed itself unexpectedly softly, it starts with green and fresh notes. I did not feel the spice and tarn notes.) I hear some sour and spicy flower accompanied with rose or ylang and some fruity, citrus and lemon notes. This fragrance is for day wear and it cheers up a bit. Like when you put on a new dress, try new make-up and add chic to this mood with this sparkling fragrance".
(Mila Verbova)
"Sia - Midnight decisions in my headphones. The fragrance starts with Korean "Star" ointment. Cold. Night. Indifferent stars know nothing of a human shrimp. I feel wood, jasmine, amber, Aura by Mugler. I think my skin is not warm enough for the perfume to reveal itself at its best. On the other hand, when I think that harem is a life time prison for hundreds of women, I really get chills.

A bit later the perfume becomes warmer, but the feeling of universal solitude does not leave. I am Russell's teapot flying fast in orbit. Or maybe I don't exist at all".
(Elena Klimanova)
"On glass – suave ensemble of gardenia, jasmine and ylang ylang. Moving slowly, exquisite, like oriental beauty from old painting. And at the same time the tail of cardamom and a drop of musk, they make this exotic white flowers sound original. Despite of rather thick cloudy fragrance and persistence, the fragrance is very delicate. I can't call it weightless, but you expect from this kind of perfume typical obtrusiveness piercing through to the stomach and brain. Harem lacks it:) An interesting effect instead – it fills all the room after five minutes from putting on skin.

Shows itself slowly like flower petals. Becomes colder and bitter in the middle, cardamom and gardenia come forward. In the end woody notes softened with jasmine are more active. By the way, jasmine is very beautiful here – tender and spacious, like you touch real petals. And gardenia is of the same beauty.

On skin - jasmine, cardamom, ylang and musk. These are the main notes that are on skin and create beautiful fragrant cocoon at the same time. «Simple, but not a simpleton» fragrance, it does not surprise but is totally charming from the start. Very warm and feminine, sits well on skin, very volatile. It is perfectly balanced – even in the theatre no one will get disappointed with it. In the end gardenia and woody notes are the only ones left.
(Anna Semenenko)
"Warm languid Orient, jasmine grandiflorum without indol, maybe with cardamom, cinnamon and cumin and a hint of incense (myrrh?) the feeling of lacquer. Very accurate balance of notes, nothing comes out of line and the fragrance smells perfect. Jasmine here sounds in the background, this is notable instead of its usual loudness. Skillful composition, everything is beautifully performed, nothing to complain about. All is noble and in order, though harem is hierarchic structure with lots of fuss, constant intrigues and fights if not for domination then for survival. All indecent wives have already been poisoned, strangled with silky rope, and all decent ones have been mentioned in the list of the favorites with an access to the sultan's body according to the timetable. Everybody is happy. And I like it!"
(Lark123sib)
"Harem really smells so that you associate it with Orient. A bit animalic musky smell of sweaty bodies, wooden decorations of the palace, and all this smells of honey-sweet arabian perfume or incense. Woody notes or some intensive flowers make these walls a bit alarming. The line of clear and clean smell in the sweet bodily swirl. In total brief illusion of immersion, but who says that you should dream for a long time?"
(Zoya Grigoryeva, Dead whore7)
"Floral fragrance. Rose garden with floribunda flowers. Rose oil for women's skin beauty. Bright rose of Taif. Lokum made of rose petals. Strange thing – a hint of lilac. You feel all this if you move further the bend of elbow from your nose. And if you put it closer, you feel wood anf some rose leaves. A bit sour. And some white flowers, a bit bitter".
(Nina Novitskaya)

In Love

In love Acidica perfumes
In love Acidica perfumes открытка акварели Анна Закревская
Watercolor by Anna Zakrevskaya
Description: semi-synthetic, flowery, white flowers

Main notes: tuberose, gardenia, musk, neroli, tobacco

Refined scent of white flowers – tuberose, gardenia and neroli in combination with velvet tobacco, white musk and milk notes. Warm, peaceful and tender like lover's touch. Instant photo of the feeling of butterflies in the stomach, unexplainable and fragile happiness seems to last forever and the whole world exists in the only one person beside. In Love was called the fragrance for a bride, delicate and enamoured. That's true, this is romantic love.

Feedback for In Love

"In Love starts with green notes, but then come nice flowers in powder, seems like there are peony, orris or violet, later in the base I feel creamy plum on leather. I liked the second part."
(Elena Postnikova)
"On glass – soft creamy sweet white flowers with a note of gardenia. Tobacco is a hint here, slight smoky trail on the surface of milk in a cup, it makes all the image very realistic, like someone is smoking a pipe in the flowering bush. In the end slightly powdery bitter green dry leaves (like lilac leaves) and pollen of mimosa.

On skin – white flowers, stuffy, intoxicating, juicy, full of pollen. They are accompanied with tobacco note and noticeable musk. To the end white flowers finally win and fly over skin nicely.

A new interpretation of vintage with many white flowers and soft aldehydes of the end of 1920s are still present and vulturous musky dominant of 1930-s has not begun yet. I would wear it to tango parties but I'm not sure if this rather tail aroma will not cause discomfort in a crowded place".
(Anna Semenenko)
"In Love: wet tender white flowers like a cloud with spicy note – bitter almond? Beautiful".
(Ekaterina Vasilyeva)
"In love – very delicate flowers with almond, light fragrance, summer wind that has opened the window to the garden. Elegant lace, curtain dancing in the wind touches gently the vase with lilac. Very harmonious fragrance, tender watercolor".
(Mila Verbova)
"Candy and dust from the vial (is that tuberose?). On skin starts with soil and medical bandages. "It won't fade awa-a-y and leave us lonely-y-y" Later I feel almond and pistacchio. Marzipan with alcohol. Broken stems of gardenia. Beautiful and melancholic..."
(Elena Klimanova)
«Juicy, loud, bright and very alcohol in the beginning. You get it at once that love is an active dance in this case;). What love? Just drank together and started it))) (с) Cherry liquor with pits mixed with Amaretto. And then at once creamy tuberose appears and something else there is of white flowers, sometimes it successfully pretends blossoming bird cherry and orange blossom and adds some powder. All is on musky and coumarin underlay. Amazing flowery gourmet fragrance, I believe many people will like the start and sound from the upper to middle notes. In fact, I liked it.

The base is no match – there are sweet coumarin with bitter almond and flowery hints. Very quiet and close to skin. Indeed, the fragrance would sound better with white suede or santal and benzoin base or other neutral white wood. Nothing of them is present, it's a pity – that would be perfect».
(Lark123sib)
"This one starts really interesting and I like it. Gourmet sweetness of hazelnut and liquor with biter note. Good substantiveness, it lasts rather long. Unfortunately, this is one-chord song. Beautiful, but too monotonous without any change. This can be annoying. But the fragrance is beautiful".
(Zoya Grigoryeva, Dead whore7)
"I felt obvious lilac and heliotrope from the vial. On skin tender almond, marzipan and milky. Spring fragrance of May. Soft and fluffy. White lilac or light violet. Something fluffy like a kitten. Innocent and playful fragrance at the same time. I would call it caressing. I looked at the contents and was surprised to see tuberose and gardenia, totally unexpected sweet couple that likes to thrill. Maybe they'll show themselves later. I'm waiting for them. On my skin still is lilac without lilac in the formula)) Approximately in an hour appears soft creamy sweetness (I suspect this is tuberose) with background of lilac. That's beautiful!"

Словенское вино Acidica perfumes
Словенское вино Acidica perfumes открытка акварели Анна Закревская
Watercolor by Anna Zakrevskaya
Description: semi-synthetic, fruity, woody, alcohol

Main notes: white wine, rhubarb, fig, sea buckthorn, oak

The fans of alcohol and fruity fragrances will appreciate Slovenian wine a lot. It is different from the rest of The black 4 both in character and idea. The concept was to make a perfume smelling of delicate Slovenian sauvignon with notes of grapes, fig, rhubarb, yellow plum and oak moss. The zest of this perfume is sparkling start with sea buckthorn note, it is unexpected and dazzling. This fragrance transforms and intrigues, like the feelings wake up and change when you try an exquisite wine.

Feedback for Slovenian Wine

"Slovenian wine is not wine at first, but the smell of wet wine skin and smashed grape seeds. Light smoky undertone. Wet wood. Somewhere in the background looks like strawberry. Very relaxing perfume. The Black sea, red wine, the sun going down the horizon".
(Elena Klimanova)
"Slovenian wine starts with wonderful dark velvety notes of tarn red wine, later it becomes more fruity. Excellent start, and then it seems that after the first glass of outstanding wine they brought you an ordinary one".
(Ekaterina Vasilyeva)
"Slovenian wine is the most difficult for understanding of all the samples, but attractive as every mystery. In the start I depicted some unfamiliar fruit or berries rotten a bit and lying on the earth. Then the composition reveals fruit juice with plastic or some chemicals note. I also hear grapes seeds with its familiar sour note, this is interesting, even some candies added here. In total the aspect of wine does not last long and the fragrance looks like fruity gourmet, I would call it champagne for kids on children's party on the table with fruit and candy".
(Mila Verbova)
"Slovenian wine is my favorite. Of course I've never tried one, but it is much like Hungarian ice wine.

This wine is made of overripe and a bit dried grapes they pick after first frost in December. White grapes. And it really seemed white to me. The frost makes sugar reach its maximum concentration. This is tarn and sweet thick wine, close to liquor. The aroma stays for long in such a nice glass and in the end appear the hints of night flowers attracting the butterflies with their smell. Warm summer evening, open terrace of the hungarian restaurant, the wine and light wind smelling of flowers".
(Elena Postnikova)
"On glass – sea buckthorn and grapes and at once dark woody chord with oak moss, rhubarb and notes of cognac. Dry basement where precious alcohol in barrels wait for their time. Wine chord comes out in the middle: first rhubarb becomes more juicy, then plum joins it and then the grapes. Tarn, dried a bit, in ideal harmony with oak barrels. In the end soft and round woody notes.

On skin – sea buckthorn accompanied by dry wood soaked with alcohol. It feels like inside the wine barrel. Fig makes this dryness feel like paper and even rhubarb and plum seem dried. In the end there are sea buckthorn and overdried wood. After the first washing out sweet chord of grapes and sea buckthorn was left, very persistent and rather nice.

This is the first fragrance by this perfumer that did not fit me at all. Very sad.

I'll try to leave it as an interior fragrance".
(Anna Semenenko)
"Tokaj Asu with sea buckthorn. It really feels golden and orange, sour and sweet with clear fruity notes. And even the aftertaste of oak barrel is here, typical for aged white wine. Some hay coumarin to be added, they would make a hay zest. And the base would be more solid, rich and persistent. A fleeting mood, rather bright and interesting". (Lark123sib)
"Slovenian wine is suddenly very sweet and dusty. This is the perfume wine out of track for me. Home brew made of ripe fresh berries and some spice added. I don't know much of alcohol, so I can be mistaken. Sweet, tasty, dusty, reminds of summer, warm weather and granny's garden with raspberry and black currant and dry soil needed regular watering".
(Зоя Григорьева, Dead whore7)
"Probably fruit and berries. Plums, blackberry. Color of ink. With growing buzz. Very concentrated. It seems to contain fig, and I have very complicated relationship with it, in negative sense. I can't think over this fragrance adequately, sorry for that. Looked at the pyramid – indeed, here is the fig. Leaves or fruit? I would suppose leaves or both. I had to wash it away, please, forgive me, Lena. What's the problem with this fig for me… This is not for the first time with this ingredient. It is likely that overdose of fig can kill me as a piece of cake))))."
