Lightning slashing the midnight skies over the endless reaches of the ocean. The electric tang of ozone, marine notes, and a drop of sharp rain.

I received this as an imp (aka sample) and I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this scent when I first looked it up on the website. When a perfume is described as “watery,” “oceanic,” or “aquatic” I just think of the Calvin Klein scents that girls used to wear in high school. Boy, was I wrong. Upon opening the imp, you do get that sort of aquatic scent note but there’s so much more! A sharpness that is hard to explain and underlying notes of lilies and maybe lemon or bergamot? On my skin, this scent is divine and wears beautifully. It starts off very sharp, bursting with juicy watery notes and citrus, this cools down and while it’s still the main scent, the soft floral and supporting citrus notes come through. I live in the pacific northwest so I can best describe it as the moment when it starts to rain but the sun is still shining through the clouds. In this scenario, this storm would be happening over a lake full of lily pads next to a grove of bergamot and lemon trees. I wore Sunflowers in high school and this is vaguely reminiscent of that scent. I will be purchasing a large bottle!

Beautifully clean and fresh but with personality. Wore it out on a rainy day and it felt perfect.

I call this the Disney perfume because it smells like a combination of the aromatic aspects of the ride Soarin’ and a perfume sold at Epcot by the name of Leila. It’s very aquatic, especially right out of the bottle, but doesn’t smell too much like hand soap. I won’t be keeping this imp for me, but it certainly works as a sharp, light, fresh fragrance.

One of my favorite scents! It smells so clean and almost just like water to me. Definitely one of the best aquatics I’ve tried. Something I will be keeping in my collecting and reordering when I run out.

This is a great spring scent that reminded me of a water lillies.

Citrus meets aquatic. It might sound strange, but it’s a grand combination. My skin usually prefers warm notes, so aquatics can be hit or miss with me. And citrus generally smells good but fades quickly on me. Somehow, mixing the two fixes both things. The citrus scent makes this perfume clean and refreshing and not too…uh, blue…at all. The aquatic scent is in the background and simply keeps the smell clean and refreshing. And the citrus didn’t fade out of the scent. The mixture stayed just as it was and lasted all day. I highly recommend this one.

Another imp, another fantastic scent. In the imp it’s sharp and refreshing. I accidentally spilled a little on my fingers while I was opening it, and now I can’t stop smelling them. Ooops.

This scent reminds me of running out to get laundry off the line outdoors because a storm is rolling in and the first drops have suddenly splattered down. It has a clean, sharp, watery aroma. I wouldn’t characterize it as a marine scent, but rather one of summer rainstorms.
So refreshing. This was the first aquatic scent I tried, and I rather like it. I usually wear something woody and warm, but this is a very nice change.

I was very intrigued by the description and decided to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised! It has a definite zing to it and has strong ozone notes. Definitely unisex. I’d give it a 5/5 if it had stronger marine notes. Worth trying if you want something unusual.

Smells like spring cleaning. Very fresh and sharp. Doesn’t work for me, but it’s a good scent if you like aquatics.
Unisex, aquatic, room scents, summer.

I’m not 100% sold on this in both wet and dry form. It is very sharp and clean when wet, and as it dries it starts to smell like pine, at least… on me it does.

“The Pretty Era”, France’s Golden Time: an age of beauty, innovation and peace in France that lasted from the 19th Century through the first World War and gave birth to the cabaret, the cancan, and the cinema as well as the Impressionist and Art Nouveau movements. Sweet opium, Lily of the Valley, vanilla, mandarin and red sandalwood.
This is the captured scent of a cold, moonless night, lost deep within the darkest wood. Haunting and desolate, this scent evokes images of fairy tale tragedy and half-remembered nightmares. Thick, viscous pine with ambergris, black musk, juniper and cypress.
Arrr! Avast ye, matey! This be the scent of pirate rum!
A brace of loaded pistols
He carried night and day;
He never robbed a poor man
Upon the king’s highway;
But what he’d taken from the rich,
Like Turpin and Black Bess,
He always did divide it
With the widow in distress.
Stand and deliver! Vetiver with gardenia, blood red rose, night-blooming jasmine, a dash of cinnamon and a faint hint of leather
