Feeling a longing for the warm weather, and a break from the rain and cool days here in Southern California, I went searching through my wardrobe to find a spring scent to lift my spirits. And there is was, tall and cool and turquoise.
I feel this one deserves a reprise for this spring/summer that is about to be upon us. One of my 10 Best of 2005, this is surprisingly refreshing scent. There is something about it I find completely captivating. Maybe it is the Iodine note; a scent from my childhood. Or the Ozone combined with a Sea Water note that lends a beachy feel. Also in the mix is a light note of Lemon on a base of Woods and Musk. Fresh, cool and watery. Kicking myself for missing out on a great tester deal at Parfume1, Holy Cow, it was only $28.95.
Here is the description directly from the Comptoir Sud Pacifique site:
"A cocktail of transparent and fresh notes, pure and crystalline for a cool and woody harmony that exhales skin-deep femininity. As head note, a zest of lemon seasons the fruity water-filled freshness of melon and iodine. A heart note of flowers stroked by the freshness of the open sea. Finally, in a burst of purity, sea water plays with the woody strength of teak to create a crystalline groove."
