Berlin im Winter and Indigo Review

Berlin im Winter is strongly redolent of Erik Kormann’s Eau de Fröhlich No.3 (2013) which introduced an innovative incense-and-cassis-over-woody-ambers theme. There, the central blackcurrant character was provided by a big dose of Givaudan’s Cassyrane, whose dusty rosemary associations created a dry, herbal contrast. A green, shiso leaf note in the top meanwhile, added to the dynamic feeling. Berlin im Winter presents a slightly juicier cassis that’s a tad more spicy/balsamic, but is quite linear and has rather less to say. Also, Berlin im Winter is somewhat marred by an unattractive dill pickle scent. It’s nothing however, compared to Indigo where the cornichon note quite overpowers the rose and musky woods.
