Heeley Sel Marin
Sun, sand and sea air. Incredibly tart and sweeter citrus evaporate into the salt-laden breeze, and an aquatic sensibility is born. Crisp beech leaf, moss, sea salt and algae construct a core of delicate green flora. Cedar’s courses beneath the weathered crevices of leather and fluffy musk keeps things light. Sel Marin encapsulates the vivid, sunbleached glory of the shore. Get your tan on without worrying about sticky sunscreen or UV damage.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Homme
With its head in Jamaica and its heart in Florence, Amyris Homme is classically handsome yet surprisingly elusive. Amyris seems to resolves out of thin air, a masculine Boticellian Venus born between the flaming brilliance of the sun and the deep, resonance of the earth. Rosemary and mandarin unify these disparate sources while amyris and iris collide and entwine. Tonka bean adds a subtly sweet sheen on skin. Exuberantly herbal, woody and luminous, Amyris Homme is undeniably swoon worthy.
Eight & Bob Cap d’Antibes
Cap d’Antibes evokes the luxurious, carefree lifestyle of the French Riviera in the 1930’s. An enveloping, sophisticated woody fougere, Cap d’Antibes is a delightfully dense, aromatic depiction of this stylish retreat. Mint crisps up piquant violet, which breaks against taut, cinnamon dusted birch. Cedar-smoked moss smoldered alongside an incensed vanilla. A captivating, modish fragrance, Cap d’Antibes is more seersucker than speedo. A wave of elegance.
Histoires de Parfums This Is Not A Blue Bottle
This Is Not A Blue Bottle is for those amongst us who prefer to encounter the sea from the relative safety of beach-side cabana–a provocative, Matisse-intricate interior designed cabana. Aldehydes and orange zest fizz like a morning mimosa on a table adorned with a vase of acidic spicy blooms of geranium. A velvety musk recalls salt-air softened fabric while patchouli illustrates the dense foliage that shades this cabana in the deliquescing landscape. A sink or swim challenge.
I Profumi di Firenze Brezza di Mare
Brezza di Mare is lightweight, luminous relief that sweeps us into the remote Mediterranean vacation spot of your dreams. Sea notes fly up onto the deck of your destination bound sea vehicle as you speed toward exotic island shores. The smell of rose confirms your arrival in paradise, and geranium reiterates rose’s heavenly aroma. White flowers foreshadow humans bodies soothed by salt water, while musk illustrates the dreamy sense of comfort you effortlessly sink into. An uplifting, sensual escape.
Take a spicy sail across a strange ocean. Pepper and saffron illuminate the moonless, midnight deck and guide us into the hold, which contains riches untold. Fine coffee, hand-worked leather, exotic osmanthus, precious sandalwood, and rare resins are redolent of foreign lands. Nanban is an edgy luxury that conveys the dynamic, sensual adventure of life at sea.
Montale Aoud Lagoon
A tropical interlude. Mandarin makes skin tingle while osmanthus soothes sun kissed skin with its honey textures. Tiare’s romance is underscored by the pure, linear structure of lotus flower, aping the inescapable pull of the ocean. Oakmoss and guaiacwood bring us back ashore to recline beside cool, spicy vetiver. Aoud-ily funky, lush and spice Aoud Lagoon transports us to a place where time stands still. Nothing but the sea and we.
Boszporusz reproduces both a river and its source. Aquatic notes and sea grass are delicately delicious. Cypress is a cool breeze that sweeps across crisp galbanum and fuzzy sage. Gardenia is azure while jasmine is lapis, and seaweed redefines verdant. Oakmoss and patchouli are water dampened dirt and sand shores alike. Amber is an evasive substance that epitomizes the deep. Musk is a soft, ethereal evaporation. Tangy, salty, sweet, dewy, green, yellow and blue, Boszporusz runs through it all.
