Undertow Perfume Oil


The Dark Side of Water: clean and purifying, yet menacing — lotus and juniper with a hint of mint. A scent dragged up from the depths to the Stygian shore.

    Pleasant, but it faded fairly quickly on me. It has a limited sillage, which is helpful for office wear.

    This is an excellent fragrance for winter formal events – clear, cold, and sharp, but not unpleasant. Wouldn’t wear it every day, especially in warmer climates.

    I was so wary of even trying this one because watery blends almost always go Cool Water for Men on me. But as soon as I popped open the frimp, it was all juicy, fruity tropical loveliness. It does feel really cold and chilly! Like a cold Pacific current. Something minty fo’ sho’. On drydown, the fruit seems to fade, but the cold feeling stays. I’m not sure if it’s the lotus or not, but I’m not catching much juniper, unless it’s just adding to the minty cold feeling without really showing itself. Where the fishes is this fruitiness coming from?!

    Verdict: A surprisingly lovely aquatic. Giving it to surfer husband.

    Cough drops. In the bottle, the lotus smells like hard candy, and the juniper and mint blend, making a nose tingling, medicinal smell.

    On my skin, there was the cough drop smell, a brief phase of sharp cat pee, more cough drops, and then it settled down into a light blend that reminded me of the smell of lipstick. My husband got toilet bowl cleaner. Icky.

    This one obviously did not work for me, but juniper can be finicky on my skin. If juniper works well for you, don’t let me scare you off.

    In the imp: Juniper and mint, followed by the sweetness of the lotus note.

    Wet: The juniper note is the most prominent, and then the mint, but the lotus flower is increasing in strength, adding a bubblegum-y vibe to the scent.

    Dry: The lotus is far stronger now. It’s mostly lotus and juniper, with a hint of mint. The lotus hasn’t gone full-on bubblegum yet, but it seems like a rather odd combination with the other notes.

    Verdict: I don’t find this to be menacing at all – it actually seems really pink on my skin. I like sugary florals (like High-Strung Daisies and TKO), but I’m not particularly fond of lotus notes thanks to that bubblegum association. (I do not like bubblegum). So I will be passing on my imp.
