Sun, sand and sea air birth a gentle breeze that refreshes our spirits as it wafts round our bodies. A striking slice of lemon sluices through the sweeter citrus of bergamot. Soon, the sun dries these fruits’ juices and as they fade and evaporate into the salt-laden air, an aquatic green note emerges. Beech leaf conveys the crisper facets of this water borne plant, while moss, sea salt and algae combine to make up the dank, delicate float of green flora sprouting in the tide pools that dapple this shoreline. The faintly ripe overtones of algaeic procreation are echoed in the base of this scent; cedar’s tart sap is the blood that courses beneath the taut, weathered epidermis of leather softened by the downy fluff of musk.
Like a time capsule that’s washed ashore in an old, corked bottle, Sel Marin encapsulates a vivid environment and its invisible creators. Perfect for ocean-going, sand-lovers. Think Jacques Mayol, or take the fast lane to Besson’s The Big Blue. A sun kissed (with tan lines visible), radiant adventurer.
