Sabotage your senses with the Black Narcissus

In the world of perfume, each fragrance tells a story through olfactory notes. One such story, "Sabotage" by Art de Parfum, is a captivating olfactory journey that transports us to a realm of contrast and allure.

Neil and Duncan, two fragrance enthusiasts, recently shared their impressions of "Sabotage." Neil was immediately drawn to the opening citrus notes, while Duncan, not a big fan of mandarin, was pleasantly surprised by the grapefruit and mint nuances that complement the composition.

The heart of "Sabotage" unveils a seductive tuberose, offering an intriguing contrast to the initial citrus notes. This perfume cleverly avoids the excesses of vanilla, making it a refreshing choice in a world of gourmand fragrances.

The box that encases "Sabotage" bears an intriguing quote: "I was trying to be good, but then I realized it's just a matter of time." This idea of self-sabotage is reflected in the perfume itself, which seems to invite you to indulge your inner hedonism.

The box's design evokes the aesthetics of director Pedro Almodóvar, with its retro font and overlapping colors, reminiscent of the dramatic atmosphere of films like "Bad Education" or "All About My Mother."

"Sabotage" is marketed as a return to the roots of 90s rave culture, but Neil doesn't quite find it matching that era. The perfume stands out for its lack of complexity in its final stages, but it offers an immediate sensation that conjures a pleasant state of mind.

This fragrance can be seen as an invitation to seduction and celebration, a reminder that life is a constant dance between self-doubt and joyful optimism. It encourages us to occasionally surrender to our hedonistic side, much like Michaella McCollum, the heroine of a fascinating documentary that followed her incredible story of naivety, cocaine smuggling, imprisonment, and ultimate redemption.

Ultimately, "Sabotage" by Art de Parfum is an olfactory experience that transports you to a world of contrast and emotions, where self-sabotage gives way to optimism.
