Canadian "Timberlake" as Anti-Mainstream
This is probably the most unconventional, but also the strangest, perhaps even the most exciting fragrance I have come across lately. And I scream hooray that even I can smell something out! ;-) Tarragon in any case, at least in the heart note, an herb that already splits in the kitchen. You either have to like it or you don't. Then this "brackish" freshness, as if you had walked along a North Sea beach with an air-checker and created an essence out of everything that was going on there: Algae, sand, driftwood, mussels, salt ...

At the first application I felt OWW as a risk. I liked the funny (though not high quality) way of designing the bottle with the wooden frame, but the first scent impression is still such that I think: Is that something for me? Similar to a meal that you call "interesting", but that really means so, and not in the sense of "I've eaten better" ... or smelled in this case!

The woodiness also comes out clearly after approx. 10 minutes. Some here call it "hardware store," others "coniferous forest." I choose Canada because that's where this brand comes from that I didn't know before Parfumo. And I can't help but keep OWW, even if I may not be a party compliment for it at home ... but maybe just (from the right person)! ;-)

Everything else has already been written: a courageous scent that polarizes (and at the beginning also divides me). But someone who doesn't join olfactory trends and pretends to be something other than indicated. Whether you consider OWW to be the Sex Pistols or the Nick Cave among the fresh fragrances, it remains to be seen - in any case it is not for everyone!

"Rant" but no "Rave" !
“Ocean” is more a sketch, than a fully rendered seascape: Instead, it's simply a log macerating in a pond of violet and artemisia. "Oasis Wet Wood", done. It's simple, and it's linear; and as such, I like it a lot. "Marketing" should have stopped at that. But to call this "Ocean"? That just brings up a whole new set of expectations. This is barely "seashore".

As far as "flankers" go, it's somewhat disappointing. If "Rocky Mountain" painted a different "portrait" of HeWood, "Ocean" simply drew a mustache on him, and left it at that !! Essentially just adding Calone to the original, isn't going to make this a great "flanker". In fact, the biggest disappointment here, IS that “water" accord. Which comes off as being still, and murky -lacking the salt infused energy of the sea. Blame it on the patchouli in the "base"; working against the ocean effect. It both, dulled, and "grounded" the composition -even though it technically gave the fragrance great longevity in the end.

Alberto Morillas is usually formidable. But Daphne Bugey really should have asked Jacques Cavallier, instead ! To partner-up her HeWood with the beautifully vivid ocean in his Bvlgari Aqua pour homme (or even, Aqua Marine). The result could have been my new "signature". As things stand, I still like it. I Just don't love it. *Sighhhh...*

Longevity:9/10 (in base)
Projection (summer temperatures):8/10 (in mid)
Art/Creatives: 6/10 (concept and scent execution
only-bottle stays status quo in this series)
How: casual, work or play, summer only,
by yourself picking lint out of your navel.

Walking on the beach smell....
Nice marine scent.

Smells like you're walking in the beach, but sometimes smells like a polluted beach because of excess of calone and violet.

There's no much development in its phases, rather a linear scent.

Lasting power and sillage are average.

The bottle is wonderful as always.
