Rausch or About Creating Addiction

in Reviews by


My first encounter with Rausch was almost one year ago and honestly, after several trials I’m still much intrigued. If somebody will ask me right in this moment to define Rausch it will be a difficult exercise but what I can easily say that it’s an intoxicating fragrance.

Veronique Nyberg together with the guys from J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin really succeeded in creating this effect. In a very good way!

So, what are the consequences of direct exposure to Rausch? This smoky dark ambery creature with some vanilla/oud traces in its veins which trigger a long term addiction and, as far as I know, no antidote to Rausch exposure was created up to this moment.

Among all amber centered perfumes Rausch it is different, a weird creature but its weirdness makes it so attractive. The amber/ vanilla/oud accord stays almost the same, like the words of a spell which have to be repeated loudly not whispering, on and on. Rausch will not take you by surprise changing on your skin, it’s safe from this perspective but please beware of this creature, it has a strong voluptuous side making you and everybody around fall so easy under the spell.

Rausch lives on the skin as long as the night lasts. I forgot to mention something really important : when going out Rausch is the best companion for night life, you can go together from a club to another club or bar melting into the night until sunrise.

When you will wake late after the night out with Rausch you will still find memories of this addiction on your skin….

Rausch can be easily worn by men and also by bold women but if you wear it please be prepared to face the consequences of your new power because you’ll create addiction around you.

My name is Alexandra , I’m a pharmacist working as a consultant in pharma and healthcare living in Romania. I’ve been always fascinated by the world of scents , perfume and horses being my hobbies . I m interested in the perception of the perfume and in discovering the emotions perfume is triggering , focusing less about the notes of a perfume . My fragrance reviews are based on my perception being an subjective olfactory experience so, please always sample yourself.
