Versatile, complex, slightly herbal aquatic
Antares is an elegant yet youthful fragrance that seems to develop quite differently from person to person. On me, the water musk is very prominent, and gives the scent a melon-y aquatic feel from start to finish. There is some mandarin at first, and a complex herbal aspect with juniper, fir, and sage that persists throughout. I smell some woodiness and labdanum after a few hours, and a hint of floral, but overall it is very well-blended and difficult to identify individual notes. The overall impression is of a light, ethereal herbal-aquatic scent, fresh but not at all sharp or harsh.

As someone who isn't fond of aquatics, this isn't for me, but I can still appreciate that it is nicely composed, complex, and versatile. It doesn't bash you over the head with calone and call it a day, unlike many similar scents. It seems to be one of Alkemia's more popular perfumes, even enjoyed by people who don't like Alkemia overall, and it definitely has mainstream appeal. It is very unisex, but I think the ethereal quality makes it especially nice for less masculine types. Sillage and longevity are both decent for this kind of light scent, especially as a perfume oil.
