Fall is harvest time, and although some fruits are no longer in season, their scents ring beautifully in the fall air, heightening the spicy scent of the falling leaves with their juicy maturity. There are only slightly less fruity scents in perfumery than floral scents, so it is quite impossible to go through them all at once. An entire book the size of a novel would be needed for this. What about the new fruity scents? Well, a lot of them arent interesting enough and dont really deserve attention. And the best then? Thats in the subjective opinion of the reviewer, of course, but its easier to achieve a certain degree of objectivity when you can compare the scent with something that exists in real life. Well, there is also a trap there. For example, there are many lucky scents with hints of plum or orange solo, but very few with hints of pomegranate or quince solo. We can never pay so much attention to all the fruits without making one of them the proverbial Queen of the Harvest. The aroma of apples only bursts with the juice when you bite into the skin of the fruit. It slowly evolves towards the scent of baked apples with raspberry jam and boiled sweetened condensed milk. It is comfortable, comforting and perfect for the fall and winter seasons. Or try Daytona 10 by Panama 1924, which is a very sour green apple - wild, tangy, but fragrant. It is adorned with the fresh and stormy scent of ozone, the pungent scent of lemon and the scent of wet magnolia in the rain. The scent is bold and kid - or bad boy tomboy, if you prefer - in terms of style, yet she isnt afraid of bad weather and bites into those firm apples with visible pleasure. Of the entire Acqua Colonia 4711 series of colognes, Red Apple & Chili 4711 is the furthest removed from the original, but it is the brightest and smoothest. Yes, it smells like apple, and moreover rather natural. It smells like apple juice sweetened with red chili. I also find that it smells of mulled wine too. Or an apple that survived frostbite but turned a bit winey as a result. Strangely, its a nice combination: sweet apples and chili. It is particularly good for the winter. A very unusual apple is offered by an Arab perfume company called OmanLuxury Oud Aquilaria - an apple tree weighed down by tons of juicy sweet and sour fruit, but scattering them in brambles of juniper, rosemary and rose hips, all of which precedes being placed on the background of the sensual aromas of leather, spices and oud. It feels like this nook of a somewhat abandoned orchard will soon be engulfed in a wave of sheer oriental luxury . . . way it looks like theyre trying to rebel against the inevitable downpour.
