Warning of increased ozone levels
Ozone is a natural component of the air. But it is also formed as a reaction of nitrogen dioxide. This increases the concentration of ozone, particularly in strong sunlight - and the high temperatures that go with it. Especially for residents of conurbations, such as the Rhine-Main area, the increased ozone formation can lead to health problems such as headaches or migraines.
One could describe the nature of ozone in this or a similar way. And the ozone that Aaron Terence Hughes fills into his flacons has a similar effect. As a trained chemist, he should be familiar with the alleged side effects of the substance also known as O3. Unfortunately, there is no warning note in this regard on his flacon.
But more on that in a moment. Because the idea for this summery cocktail is not a bad one, on the contrary: there is the sweetness of coconut, the freshness of lime, there are some woody notes. All this awakens - especially for a travel-mad spirit like mine - holiday feelings of the exotic kind.
You only have to close your eyes for a short time and you dream yourself to a tropical beach. Ozone sounds like Virgin Island Water, but its tropical wind is much stronger than the quoted scent of Creed. The projection has power, the durability is good.
But on the way to the perfect summer scent, unfortunately, Ambroxan gets in my way all too quickly. I count myself among those who sometimes react sensitively to this scent chord. And here it happens now:
The Ambroxan brings me back from my mental journey to the South Seas. My island paradise becomes a traffic island, in the middle of the city traffic, at 40 degrees. And the inevitable happens with too much ozone: I get a headache
And so the South Sea longing ends at the sink. With plenty of soap and a towel. Conclusio: not for me
But who can it be for? For a fragrance of ATH is rather less loud and from its composition more balanced and therefore more suitable for the masses. It has not been created according to ATH's usual inyour-face principle - if this has bothered you so far, you can be happy here. Likewise, if you like Ambroxan and are looking for a summer scent that has more to offer than citrus or aquatic. Friends of Virgin Island Water can also be happy here, because Ozone is similar to it, but a bit more powerful.
Conclusion: We are dealing here with a unisex fragrance that comes at an extremely attractive price by ATH standards. Its mentioned mass suitability does not mean however that it will not split you, dear Parfumos. The Ambroxan probably decides everything. It's all about inhaling Ozone and getting blissful. Or falling down.
PS: There are hardly any research results available on long-term effects and late damage caused by ozone; a health hazard can therefore not be ruled out with certainty even if there are no acute complaints.
