Dasein’s SUMMER is sunshine and cocktails at the ultimate summer pool party. Grapefruit is remarkably photo realistic, a juicy, ruby red burst of spicy-sweet energy. Grass is a dulcet note in grapefruits aftermath, yet it’s soothing green catches some of grapefruit’s intensity so that grass begins to sparkle and emanate an earthy heat. As grapefruit ignites grass, neroli issues a lazer-like beam outwards, a shaft of near-white sunlight piercing through the canopy of juicy and sweet, herbal green grass. Jasmine is a soft effect herein, definitely devoid of any indolic predilictions. Coriander and cilantro are constants throughout, the former a tight bundle of seed-like intensity, the other, a flowering green that diffuses a sunny, almost floral fragrance.
Both versions, coriander and cilantro, are clean, spicy and slightly aquatic, insofar as they remind us of the saline, savory concentration of the salt air. SUMMER is a vibrant, celebratory scent that recalls this season at it’s ripest, yet most enlivened state of olfaction. Enjoy Summer, and let the sun shine in, no matter the time of year.
All Dasein scents are paraben, glycol and cruelty free, small batch, hand blended in the hills of Glassell Park.
Update June 2107: Farewell to Dasein’s Spring & Summer… just a few bottles remain of these two cult favorites… never to be produced again!
