Monte y Mar
Warm air in the morning.
Silence and solitude of a small idyllic bay.
Deserted I perceive the whisper of the wind in the old pine tree.
Salty , resinous air leaves a pleasant feeling when inhaling
The water shimmers turquoise, like an opal.
I am happy to take some photos.
My Model today:

Adolfo Dominguez's AQUA FRESCA

A few sprays in the air......
I notice light tangerine, very light, then some herbs and the great freshness.
As if the environment wants to affirm the scent.
The gentle waves call......yes, that's how we smell.
The pine whispers.....wait a little longer then you can smell me too.

I'll look for a nice spot to take pictures by then,

It's a befitting location for this Spaniard. Indeed, a rock in the surf......it is not, more like a rock in shallow water.

Soft lavender and something woody remind me that I still want to go to Felanitx.
My new Spaniard accompanies me.

Shimmering heat, the hot noon approaching on the way to Sant Salvador.
While this is a typical day trip destination, there are a few ways off the beaten path.
That silence again
Hot air
Not a bird is chirping
The song cicadas offer a concert
Once again I take the Aqua Fresca and spray into the air.
It also copes well with the midday heat.
This time it seems spicier, drier.
i don't know if it's the rosemary.
I associate funnily enough a rabbit stew just to it, braised in an earthenware pot with thyme, rosemary.

A great companion not only in the Mediterranean area.
That was today my Monte y Mar

Awesome!
Now I am old woman totally crazy: I run after myself!
Run after me, turn around, want to bury myself in my hair (if I hadn't cut off a whole piece of it recently, that would have been possible) - all this in search of this surprising fragrance that surrounds me like a fine veil!

What did this smart Spaniard Adolfo Dominguez conjure up here?
No flowers, no typical summer fruits - no, spicy herbs, a lot of aromatic wood and scents that lead my favorite scale.
And not to forget: a sunset at the Mediterranean!
The entire stored fragrance-intensive warmth of a summer day is exhilaratingly emitted here: with full hands dedicated to the evening, the beginning night.

The usual citric freshness of a summer fragrance opens an extraordinary round dance; because marjoram is hardly expected by anyone: an entrée - strange and yet immediately fascinating!
The bitter Artemisia aroma enriches the already unique scent ensemble.
Now the fragrance trail leads through the evening macchia, whose herbaceous plants such as lavender and rosemary have been native to this area for several years and therefore lavishly embalm the soft warm air: not only with leaves and flowers, but also with their fragrant wood.
In addition, clary sage and juniper are mixed with pepper and coriander and added to the previous fragrance composition to create a fresh and spicy symphony for pampered noses!
The intensively flavoured path leads to the sea: pines and cedars accompany this sensual evening walk with their bitter resinous vapours.
The dark, heavy earth-green of vetiver and oakmoss (oh, how much I like that!) surprise at first: they are an invitation to linger and look.
Sandalwood' erotic heaviness is escorted by a well-dosed musk edition before the golden-brown creamy patchouli finally lies over everything as a connecting net!
It's done: "Agua Fresca" rises to its spicy-fresh fullness!

This hot summer day is crowned by a fragrance that combines all the graceful charms of the south.
It doesn't just refresh; it adapts like airy summer clothes that sway in a light, playful breeze.
The durability of this charismatic companion is that of a "little water": it invites to waste!
"Agua Fresca" asks charmingly: "Can it be a bit more or better: the same?"

Carnival costume in Spee(e)?
I got the smell between my fingers in the course of a souk purchase. Thanks to Deimos for the fast shipping and the great samples.

Of course I had to test it right away and now I'm seriously thinking about disguising myself as a toilet stone for carnival. I would finally have the right scent, where?

There would certainly be a great danger of confusion for hosts of drunks.

Sounds quite sobering at first sight, aaaber!

Toilet blocks have their right to exist. Without them it would smell considerably worse in some places, that much is certain. Citrus fruits are apparently generally equated with cleanliness and freshness. This seems to be a basic instinct and so you can toss citric freshness into detergents. It's sometimes bad for perfumes, aaaber!

Here we go.
Conversely, this fragrance is a cleansing agent for the skin.
Fresh, clean, clean. Agua Fresca eben.

Whatever he is?
On my skin, unfortunately, non-existent. Even for an eau de toilette, the performance is quite weak. But he performs quite well on clothes. On the skin I can only perceive the lemon-heavy, tangy top note. Then something green and herbaceous appears on the clothes, with juniper dominating.

I will not do the carnival costume because of the mentioned source of danger.

Yes, maybe the purchase will pay off elsewhere. You can save one or two splashes of Agua Fresca on the wardrobe and the dry cleaning.

The smart way to wash!

A Wedding Wreath with Barbershop Soapiness
Agua Fresca is based upon marjoram, whose botanical name means "joy of the mountain" in Greek, and was first used to make wreaths for use as wedding flowers. It was because Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was believed to wear wreaths made from marjoram.

That being said, Agua Fresca is a natural fragrance inspired by the dense and humid forests of Galicia. The fresh scent of rainfall on green leaves and moss combine the soothing and aromatic notes of lavender, marjoram, rosemary, and sage, for a modern and elegant man. Agua Fresca feels like morning walks from the woods to the beach, and it's genuinely calming.

I wore this for the first time in months this morning, and I'm reminded just how good it is. A dehydrated, nearly austere citrus with a dash of herbs, it almost feels like it's been made in an apothecary's shop in a little Tuscany interior village. There is something a touch bitter in the composition, which I assume is the artemisia, and the juniper is present but subtle. The dry down is quite keen on the pine with a little sandalwood and musk.

It opens up with a dry blast of citrus leaves and aromatic lavender and bitter artemisia. The bergamot and mandarin stay entirely in the background, not ruling the opening. It's kind of like the humid airs of the forests, which exudes the essence of rainfall on the grass.

The heart is dominated by the soothing and aromatic herbs, with marjoram, sage, and rosemary in the foreground, so classic for the refined gentleman. Balsamic and resinous notes of juniper berries are blended in this masculine, brave heart.

The dry down is all about fresh, woody, and smoky accord. Burnt pine needle tree, rooty vetiver, and clean musk release the new trail of this scent.

It is reserved, with a moderate sillage and longevity, and old-fashioned in the right way. If you want something that has the echo of a fragrance like Acqua di Gio but has went in a completely different direction, try Agua Fresca, dry and fresh yet not aquatic or marine. It's not the sort of fragrance to get one noticed or complimented, but every time I smell it, I get a little smile.
Recommend for a calescent summer day, so elegant, airy, and light.

Classy Mediteranian Scent
Classy is a hard thing to describe...but this has it. You can imagine a doctor wearing this. This smells slightly medicinal but mainly it smells like a well balanced male scent that isn't soft or harsh, something in the middle. The herbs in here are very Mediterranean. I mean, Marjoram? Com'on. Great stuff. The only thing is the silage, which I give a 5/10. Needs about 7 sprays to get an hour or two of decent silage and the longevity is just average, about five hours. The good thing is that it can be found for relatively cheap.

A crisp barbershop soapiness balanced with soft herbs making for an overall deeply satisfying sense of cleanliness. A gentleman's cologne.
