Pretty pointless to describe this iconic milestone of modern perfumery, since as like Luca Turin once wrote, each of us has know “a minimum of five people who wore this”... On the other hand, as time goes by, this is starting to become “vintage”, so perhaps younger perfumistas are less familiar with it. Shortly, it’s basically one of the pillars and starting points of all “watery-iodine” family of scents. It opens with an aldehydic, mineral, aqueous sort of blend, with a tropical-fruity accord (smelling like melonal), citrus, a sort of thick white musks note tending towards spicy territories (red pepper?), a quite complex yet elegantly thin floral accord, and a light woody base. All blended together with a metallic, clean, unisex allure, an artificial and abstract shade of creamy white perfectly adherent to the brand’s aesthetics. A sort of “oceanic-tropical futurism” if you want, absolutely innovative for its era. A little cloying perhaps (despite being “white”, it’s not really light, on the contrary it’s bold and quite powerful as regards of projection and persistence), and also perhaps a bit outdated due to the subsequent abuse of these notes, but still fascinating, pleasant and (fairly) distinctive.
