8x4 Pure - Reminiscence of Ming Shu (Yves Rocher)...

   Do you miss MING SHU?...

   Here might be a decision for you, if you are in situation you can't find it, but at least you can try this:

Lily, Watermelon, Seaweed   
   I recently came across this very high quality Perfume Deodorant - 8x4 PURE.
  It reminded me very much my favorite Ming Shu perfume, which I can't find now, unfortunately.

   The biggest resemblance is coming from Nymphaea Stellata, known as Blue Lotus, Star Lotus or Water Lily. 

Ming Shu is Aquatic Floral

Top notes: Marine Notes, Pepper

Mid.notes: Nymphaea Stellata, Ylang-Ylang

Base notes: Sandalwood, Vanilla

   Some little difference comes from the sweet note of the Watermelon, but overall - both of them are Aquatic, with Lily presence and very pure as spirit.

   They radiate sensuality and pureness the same time.

   I find 8x4 very high quality product. It stays for hours, provides protection without betray. Doesn't leave spots on the clothes. Gives delicate fragrance. And most of everything - it reminds me Ming Shu so much :)!...


   You can wear it in any occasion. Even you don't need parfume. In case, if you have both of these scents, you can make the perfect combination.

   Launched in 1991, this lovely perfume captures with elegance, finesse, stylish... This is BASIC BLACK by Bill Blass. Despite, that it's EDC, the scent appears as classic perfume with depth, character and conception. It's not expensive like the biggest brands, but it can get one of the first places, without any problem.

   It doesn't have anything in common with evening dark, deep and heavy perfume. It has character and it says: "I am here, I am elegant. Look at me!"

   It's composition concludes:


Carnation, Plum, Mandarin Orange, Peach, Ylang-Ylang, Bergamot, Cardamom


Honey, Coriander, Carnation, Tuberose, Violet, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Rose


Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli, Musk, Benzoin, Coconut, Civet, Oakmoss,

Vetiver, Styrax

Evernia Prunastri - Oakmoss
   I will make a short note here - it contains Evernia Prunastri Extract (Oakmoss)

   It's forbidden for use in perfumes in Europe, with the explanation, that it causes allergies. 

   Another explanation is, that these natural extracts are forbidden to use, because they are protected against disappearance. Especially about perfumes, manufactured in EU.

   This perfume is made in USA - that's why, it contains Oakmoss.

   Many people doubt about the real "reason", but the truth is - a fragrance with natural oils is much genuine and much natural, than a fragrance, containing their chemical dupes. The last variant, causes allergies and irritations, especially if you inhale some amount, from the sprayed perfume cloud. We all have this situation, sometimes.

   The moment, I unwrapped the nylon, I felt that the box radiates something very similar to black pepper scent. 

   As we already saw from the perfume pyramid, it's very rich composition. Despite all that, the dominant notes, which I feel (after the perfume settles down, are Patchouli, Sandalwood, Oakmoss, hint of carnation, hint of honey, moderate hint of Civet. With the hours going, these notes form the actual perfume base and they stay close to the skin.


This is how the perfume comes - wrapped in nylon

Distributor's details

The box without nylon - black matt surface with white and gold details

The back side of the box with the ingredients list
Notice - it contains Oakmoss extract - Evernia Prunastri

   The perfume comes into 100 ml transparent massive glass bottle with very clean oval shape design, comfortable for woman's purse. Natural spray.

   It's the perfect fragrance for night out - to go to theatre, concert, exhibition, dinner, promenade. It's delicate scent, which accompanies you so naturally, without to scream and invokes attention, but it attracts with calmness, softness, confidence.

   I would suggest:

   - Spring - evening, occasionally, official 

   - Autumn - day / evening wear, 

   - Winter

   It would be very good addition to your evening black elegant appearance, especially in official event.

   My advice - test before buy!

   It you think, that the described notes might indicate, that this could be your type of fragrance - I RECOMMEND IT!
