7.5 5.0 5.0 7.0/10
This fragrance opens very lightly with a head note I could not easily identify. It is fresh and slightly salty so I assume it is the kelp. This unusual head note disappears quite fast to leave behind a fruity base note underlined by a woody note. The raspberry note is fresh and aromatic and the rosewood note gives it a certain, much-needed emphasis. I especially like the fact that the wood note is not clean, but sweaty. I associate it with the skin of a person who just had sex. Even at this stage, the fragrance is airy and not overpowering. This fragrance has a classic, manly feel to it and I can understand that it might be too pedestrian for some people.
