This will take you to the beach before you get there. It’s like getting smacked in the face with a wave you weren’t expecting. A very naturalistic interpretation of a cool & cloudy day at a bracing, windswept beach. It will take you all the way to Scandinavia. It is quite unique, somewhat introspective in mood, and a low-key affair. A true work of art, this is a clean, aquatic, salty fragrance. It not only captures the sea notes, but also the rocks and the wet sands beneath the water. The oud is not overpowering in this fragrance – this perfume is so well balanced that you can only just detect it in the background. If you are looking for an aquatic masterpiece, this is the best one in our collection and not for commercial perfume lovers.
You will encounter a putrid seaweed smell reminiscent of low-tide on a hot day. A unique blend that combines the rugged and unforgiving elements of sea with a refined woodiness creating that high level of sophistication. The oud is present and a bit smokey, but overall it’s much more of a Western interpretation of oud. Nice woods with an oceanic sea salt creates a beautiful combination of land and sea. The marine nuances of the scent never actually take you to a tropical beach on a hot day, but rather a cooler beach at night with a bonfire close by. Projection and longevity are both moderate and it is more suited for a nice sunny summer hot day. This is a fragrance to take on holiday and continue using it after coming back home to feel you are still on holiday.
