I agree with the previous poster who said to watch out if your skin amplifies sweet notes! On me, this is a very sweet floral with none of the sea/salt/citrus notes that others talk about. It's nice enough, and oddly a bit better in warm weather. I thought the sweetness would become cloying in June, but it was actually very nice. The floral came through a bit more, and it toned down the sweetness. I had about 7mL and it took me several years to use those up. I will not be repurchasing.
A bright fresh and summery bergamot-based heliotropic opening blast greets me; it is as if a ray of sunshine escaped this pretty bottle. A slightly fruit undertone of berries, peach and hints of pear does not distract from the brightness of the top notes overall.
In the drydown the marine character comes alive: a pleasant and crisp saltiness that is mixed with a touch of jasmine and whisps of cardamom. The base adds a subtle vanilla that adds more depth without taking away from the lightness and elegance of the whole.
I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and five hours of longevity on my skin.
A fresh summer scent that captures bright and sunny days in the seaside in a most uplifting way. Limited performance but blended very well. 3.5/5.
Whoah! Be careful with this one if your skin tends to sweeten things! On me, this was a thick, sludgy, sweet, syrupy jasmine, with just a lashing of salt in the background. The salt was a nice touch but alas, it was in no way strong enough to even begin to counterbalance all of that syrupy floral sweetness.
I saw this described elsewhere as "carmelized jasmine," which I found remarkably apt: this isn't an indolic sweetness, but more of a gourmand sort of sweetness. It reminds me of the syrup base that would be mixed with carbonated water at an old-fashioned soda counter. If there were a jasmine soda pop, this is exactly what I imagine its syrup base would smell like.
Way too cloying for me, but then, things do tend to go very sweet on my skin. I can readily imagine this being perfectly nice on someone with a very different body chemistry.
Notes include: herperidia (citrus melange), jasmine, chamomile blossom, juniper, musk.
The scent is meant to suggest heather, gorse, salt sea spray, seaweed.
This is a nice scent, different from many others. It is NOT an oceanic/marine sort of scent -- no ozone or synthetic notes here. It starts with a salty citrus, emphasizing lemon and then moving into a green citrus style with perhaps a hint of plummy bergamot. It opens into a dusky floral, of a white-green sort. Suggesting jasmine but of a muted sort, not sweet nor heavy. Very crisp and invigorating overall, and then it softens into a chamomile/hay note with sunny fields and an ocean breeze beckoning. A spring-like, sunny day, quite enjoyable. Definitely unisex on the soft/floral side. Enjoyable, limited longevity (1-2 hours).
I come from a wild wind swept sea and this has that feeling to me. Brisk and biting. You can smell the brush and the sea air and then the jasmine starts to work it's way in. The jasmine is done brilliantly. It keeps it from being entirely stark and yet doesn't make it feel like a floral composition in the least. I find it very moody and at the same time extremely easy to wear. I think that this is at it's most special when layered w/ it's sister perfume~Lostmarc'h Aod. It warms it up considerably and gives it that suntanny feeling w/out entering into something too cliche. I'm utterly smitten and this pair will be my go to combo w/out a doubt this summer season. Honestly~I'm not sure I've ever had a go to fragrance before! ~Yikes!!
