Jousset Parfums Qahua Bunga 1 Extrait de Parfum is a gourmand perfume that vacillates between virtually caramelized espresso and bitter espresso with fruity, smoky notes and a touch of mint tea. It very a lot provided the notes listed as what I detected, and it had a linear development, so if one cherished the opening, the remaining was largely the identical (solely blurring a bit over time).

What does Qahua Bunga 1 Scent Like?
It opened with thickened, inky black espresso with syrupy smoke that twisted with a sip of mint tea. There was a waft of melon that flitted within the background, much less clearly as melon and extra as one thing candy, barely fruity. The espresso was typically bitter and fragrant, whereas different instances it was virtually caramelized; there was a particular sweetness there however virtually too fruity to be simply coming from the espresso itself.
The perfume had a really linear development and have become extra blended, barely blurred, and fewer fruity over time. Even after eight hours, it was nonetheless very a lot the identical in really feel because the opening, simply softer and extra blended.
It lasted for eight hours till it was a skin-scent and about 14 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable and didn’t transfer nearer till the fourth hour.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime, so be conscious of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 could not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
Qahua Bunga 1 is offered for $155/500ml.
If doable, I extremely advocate attempting a perfume earlier than buying a full bottle as a result of perfume can put on in another way simply due to pores and skin chemistry. Pores and skin chemistry can impact not simply the longevity of a perfume but in addition what notes are distinguished or hidden.
