Candied Honeydew
Honestly, I think that of the fragrance houses I’ve explored so far, that Gallagher Fragrances and Atelier Cologne are the kings of fruit in fragrance. This fragrance, Pearfecto, and Fineapple all stand out to me as exemplars of realistic fruits in fragrance, with this scent specifically featuring a delicious and intense honeydew melon note. I’d say that Amongst Waves is pretty genre breaking for an aquatic scent, as to me it is a gourmand aquatic. It honestly smells like what a watermelon Jolly Rancher tastes like in the best way possible, with the vanilla and patchouli featured in the fragrance really rounding out the foody-ness of it. This fragrance makes me hungry when I wear it because of the food attachment I make to it in my mind. Their is also an air of summer fun about this fragrance that I can’t get enough of, but at the same time I also wouldn’t say this is a summer exclusive scent. It’s bright and joyful, but because of the vanilla, patchouli, and some of the floral notes in here there is some heft behind it while also remaining light enough to be enjoyed in the summer. As an example, I wore this in the early spring when we still had snow melting up here and didn’t feel like the fragrance was out of place like I would have wearing something like say Pacific Lime or Orange Sanguine from Atelier Cologne or even Bergamust by Gallagher himself around the same time of year. Overall I recommend this fragrance but definitely try before you buy because if you go into it expecting a typical aquatic fragrance you won’t find what you’re looking for.

Although this fragrance is very well blended and high quality, I could not stand it after wearing it for an hour. I tried to give it a chance but the melon note was potent. I expected the melon to fall off after an hour or so but nope! It kept kicking. It's funny how notes work sometimes that the notes you don't like seem to last and project the strongest. Anywho... The fragrance started out with a strong melon and aquatic misty vibe then transitioned to a sweet woody mess(could be good if you like that type of thing). The patchouli didn't have the mature vibe but rather youthful late 90's smells like A-men and others(I actually like some of these lol.) I can't think of an appropriate to where melons as this seems to be the fatal flaw of this fragrance. It's not that it's bad but it's bad to my nose. If you like a strong melon scent that projects across the room this could be for you. But it's a no for me. The perfumer is excellent and I love many of his creations(like Bergamust and ilore) but not this one. It gets points for style and uniqueness and being an atomic bomb of a fragrance but I can't stand that melon note in it.

I give it a 5/10. Try before you buy.

I get no sea salt and little water or waves, just an intense, long-lasting melon and patchouli combo. More airy and subtle after a while.
