Oh J. F. Schwarlose.
Is it fair to say that this reminds me of Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Bianca Nerolia? Because it does. And I both love that and hate that.
Where Nerolia Bianca is brighter, more cheerful, more definitive and perhaps a little prettier, 1A-33 (J.F. Schwarlose 2012) is more delicate, elegant and mysterious. I love Bianca Nerolia. I almost love 1A-33…
Actually, if I try not to compare them I find myself liking 1A-33 more, but if I do compare them intentionally I like Bianca Nerolia more.
Indeed, when I wore them both at the same time I loved the Guerlain. When I wore 1A-33 by itself (twice)…I was really tempted to buy a full bottle of it.
The thing is, 1a-33 changes. Nerolia Bianca is more linear. BUT…I’m not sure I love the way 1a-33 changes.
Oh, goodness, I likely won’t buy a full bottle of this Schwarzlose. However, I think it’s a very nice one. AND…goodness…I need to investigate this house even more!
