A great Aquat with character
Oceania is one of the fragrances of Paolo Terenzi, which is unfortunately hardly noticed, the reasons for this I do not really understand. The association regarding a similarity to Percival I must deny quite clearly. Oceania has no resemblance at all to Percival or the twin of all modern Aquatics Fierce. Nor can I really see how any similarity would be apparent here.

The comparison with shower gel is true, but if that bothers one, the person should perhaps in principle give a wide berth to perfumes with aquatic, because that association exists here very often.

Oceania is one of the best Aquaten, which I have tested so far. Oceania is fresh with a bergamot and bitter orange which blends very well with the aquatic note. The fruits in the heart note slow down the aquatic notes and do a very good job of preventing an algae smell, or anything musty. I can't really identify the fruits individually, but these serve their purpose perfectly. The base notes with oud and moss make the scent darker and spicier again, and make it last well. I can only detect the base note very gently. Oceania pulls the aquatic theme through to the end perfectly and always remains fresh and reminiscent of a holiday by the sea.

The shelf life is also good. I can perceive Oceania good 8 hours. The silage is very strong for 2-3 hours and from the 4.hour the silage goes back to something under an arm's length.

The vastness of the ocean..
... are also a symbol of freedom and the spirit of discovery. Not only the scent of the fresh sea air sells well, but also the idea of the associated attitude to life. Paolo Terenzi seems to be a real jack-of-all-trades (have I ever used this word in my life?), because he creates new fragrances for Tiziana Terenzi, V Canto and Giardino Benessere, which are sometimes described in a rather extravagant way. At Oceania it is, in any case, among other things:

"[...] enriched by the exclusive Terenzi Library molecule known as Oxygen. When sprayed into the air, this innovative and unique molecule triggers an incredible effervescent and refreshing effect."
(Source: https://www.cereriaterenzishop.com/en/product/oceania/)

So we can all consider ourselves lucky to be able to breathe in such an exclusive molecule (O2) every day...

I must confess, however, that the top note - for me a 10/10 - actually has something of a cool sea breeze. It is here skillfully and rather airy-aquatic, than salty maritime staged and initially especially connected with the citrus and fruity notes. It's not only refreshing, but also puts you in a good mood. (Some pure niche snobs might describe it as too designer, though) There is a hint of cardamom and lavender in the background, but everything is subtly interwoven here - just airy - so nothing really stands out strongly. The disappointment follows for me in the drydown, because this can not keep up with the great opening - this seems a little too pale and especially musky-clean and only very slightly woody. To recognize oud here, you need quite, quite, quite a lot of imagination...

For such a perfume, the shelf life is quite decent, although I get with Oceania quickly the feeling to wear only a skin fragrance, while me but still a diffuse freshness blows around. Oceania is an uncomplicated fragrance, absolutely unisex and versatile, but I experience here the same dilemma as with so many summer fragrances, that after the fading of the fresh top notes, often only a rather bland base accord remains (keyword: top note blender). At a price of two euros per milliliter, however, this is too little for me to trigger a buying impulse. Paolo Terenzi could have invested a little more spirit of discovery here.
