Reviews of Sex and the Sea by Francesca Bianchi

The fruity-coconutty opening is quickly joined by soft, powdery florals, mainly mimosa, & something dark, almost leathery. lt doesn't quite read as civet to me, but l'm guessing that's what l'm getting here. From here it slowly settles into a warm, sweet, creamy tropical accord with hints of suntan oil & salty skin. There's immortelle in the heart, & later iris & sandalwood. Being an extrait, it sits quite close to the skin, but it's still softly present seven hours in.

Reading the reviews, this one seems to provoke rather extreme reactions. l'm quite enjoying it myself, but as an evocation of "an intimate encounter on the beach", l much prefer Suntanglam by SP Parfums, which is based on the same idea.

Loud and brash. Suntan oil that's going bad. Buttery, fatty feel. Something bitter underneath... Strong immortelle. Starchy. Iris - very dry. Drips of something like a honey note. Calms down somewhat. I enjoy this - maybe I am deranged.

The base is a smooth blend of notes. Still, I can smell immortelle; it's caramel and bread characteristics still charm. I smell a saltiness in the base, with a vague sawdust and animal accord. the latter, not too obvious.

Starchy aroma remains. Artsy and well done, IMO.
