Fresh wrigleys breath by the sea
"He leant forward for his kiss, and for the second before their lips met, his powdery spearmint juicy fruit chewing gum breath very nearly put her off. She turned quickly and tried to put the thought from her head. They sat together with the salty sea air blowing through the grasses into their faces. She turned again and snuggled into his coat. The warmth of him, the grass, the salt and the herbal air all blended perfeclty with the slighly fruity powdery chewing gum...She snuggled closer for more."

Interesting citrussy minty jump start but it goes the right way and is extremely smoothly well blended eventually towards the end. Salty vetiver and slightly earthy patchouli softly blended at the drydown. Not really my sort of thing but nice, clean and safe for a crisp business meeting or fresh for the gym.

A Pleasant Surprise...
Aer opens with a splash of slightly sour grapefruit with faint hints of underlying spearmint. As the composition moves to its early heart the very natural smelling green spearmint takes the fore with the grapefruit joining slightly grassy vetiver in support. Moving further through its heart, the mint remains, melding into now lemony, grassy vetiver, gaining strength into co-star status as turpentine-like resinous elemi joins into the fold as the last part of the now starring trio. During the late dry-down the lemony, grassy vetiver takes over as sole star eschewing the spearmint, as the turpentine-like elemi and bitter grapefruit remain in significant support through the finish. Projection is average, but longevity outstanding at over 20 hours on skin.

Aer is a very pleasant surprise. When first sprayed on skin the sour top notes didn't grab me, but once the extremely natural smelling green spearmint takes hold shortly afterwards, things improve big time, quickly. Adding additional strength to the composition is the vetiver that changes character slightly as time passes. It starts off grassy, but then adds a slightly sharp lemony facet that really smells amazing. On the apparently negative side of the equation is the resinous turpentine-like elemi that took a while to warm to, but the longer one wears the composition the easier it becomes to appreciate how the perfumer got the elemi to meld perfectly with the vetiver and mint, creating a really unique and interesting overall heart accord. Finally, the late dry-down does not disappoint as the lemony vetiver takes over, using the elemi and sour grapefruit as underlying support, working extremely well. All-in-all Aer is not really my kind of composition, but there is no denying its skillful execution and wonderfully innovative overall results. The bottom line is Aer is an innovative composition that brings mint, vetiver and elemi together with exceptional execution and results, earning it an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and a strong recommendation.

Bracing green with a darker twist
Aer is all about grassy notes, sharp mint leaves, aniseed, warm salty-watery vetiver and a general, highly enjoyable breezy mood. Fresh, earthy and bright. And totally different from any other “fresh, earthy and bright” fragrance. Whereas most of other Ciampagna scents share a quite clear and consistent “dark rural” feel, Aer puts aside (most of) the darkness while maintaining a bold, crisp, woody-aromatic countryside look; the smell of grass, hay, salt, woods, Mediterranean aromas (aniseed, herbs) is truly “airy” and lightweight, far brighter than nearly all other fragrances from this line. Still somehow “cloudy”, though; a slight aqueous feel, the balmy humid air preceding a storm. So I wouldn’t consider this separated from the “fil rouge” linking all the fragrance in this line; just the brighter one, but still rooted in that “rural Gothic” world. There’s a clear resemblance to Kenzo Air; just saltier, with more hay notes, and overall, a bit thicker here, and smelling more “natural”. Bright and versatile, but with enough twists to stand out from the genre. Radiant bracing elegance with a cloudy twist. Again: bravi!
