Reckless
certainly original and reckless. Matos has creativity, but I wouldn't wear this one. you can appreciate how realistic what the name says is. synthetic opening with astonishment effect for what you are smelling. you are sure in a swimming pool complete with a plastic floor. over time it softens everything but still remains the smell of chlorine. I don't think you want to smell like this? However, interesting how this could smell for our future. perhaps in 2090 perfumes will be smells like these. Would we need this someday to remind us of smells of the past? :)

Chemical accident, or childhood with old plastic utensils and green fouling remover
So beautiful I had imagined my second date with Miguel, after he had turned my head with '"Summer Oud". This time I wanted to experience something "aquatic" with him - well, Miguel showed his true colors on the second "blind date" - and I did not like it....To be honest, it was downright disturbing.
When I joyfully entered Mr. Mato's "swimming pool", an olfactory hell opened up for me. I was sure this must be a pool from a horror splatter. Nothing, but nothing at all, was to be found here of summer swimming pool whimsy with a slight chlorine note and sunscreen-grass-ice cream scent mingle. Instead, a smell of nasty 70's plastic ware with plasticizers hits me in the face that had been stored in the Speis for the winter in the old plastic cooler bag, and had now been sitting in the blazing sun for 3 hours until you unzipped the cooler bag. The whole thing is still devilishly underlined by a smell, which arose when my grandfather treated the old concrete terrace plates with green coating remover, and the resulting water-chemical steam wafted in the blazing sun on the hot plates through the garden...Besides, I still smell at my children's paddling pool - of course also good old plastic with its characteristic smell. In short, no, this scent has nothing, but nothing, nice about it for me. This is bad chemical smell for me.
The silage and the durability indes are excellent. Unfortunately....

I can't think of a good occasion who would want to wear this smell and when - but I'm sure some might actually like it from an experimental point of view.

This was, unfortunately, a blind date without a happy ending - and I will be wary of Miguel in the future.

The dead man in the swimming pool
Wensker was called to a new case, the Seahorse group under the direction of Mrs. Hammer Shark wanted to practice swimming in the warm children's pool of the local swimming pool when they saw - fortunately not the children - the corpse of a young man floating in the main pool. Immediately, Wensker was informed and rushed over with his goofball duo Schubert and Haller. They pestered each other as usual, today by throwing pebbles found by the wayside into each other's abdomens. Obviously both had already finished planning their offspring. Already at the beginning Wensker wrinkled his nose: "someone meant it too well with the chlorine! In general, so bloomy, this chlorine!"
"Sorry, that's true, but I'll introduce myself first: Nui Fox Nose, I'm the owner of the pool and I also picked out this formidable floral chlorine. Made by Michael Matoschka, our house and yard gardener."
"Good day Mr. Fox Nose, is that a Frisian accent? Be that as it may, teach me. Gladly in the case, not in love matters."
"Well, no idea where the dead man came from. He must have sneaked in here at night. We found beer cans as well as the Smurfs party mix."
"Hmm...well, let's go secure the evidence."

"Schubert, what have you found out so far?"
"Well, judging by the footprints, he was short, or he wasn't, but two one-legged ones. Then we'd have the perpetrators as well."
"....Haller, get me the CCTV, on from the day before."
They watched the videos, but Wensker first noticed that the scent was now tending more towards an aldehydic aquatic. The initially exuberant floral elements were tamed even if the tuberose with its exotic and sophisticated nature was clearly noticeable. It underlined the aquatic, so to speak, opened the fragrance respectively expanded the spectrum of olfactory nuances, becircte.

"Well, on the video from yesterday, you can only see how the dead man was already there briefly, tinkered with the green elements and then left, but argued with Matoschka. Maybe we should investigate in that direction but I still have one question for you two: weren't you on sick leave yesterday?"
"Yes, boss!"
"Then how come you two were happily swaying in the swimming pool yesterday, drinking beer and teasing each other as usual?"
"At some point the pain in my back was gone and we were able to get back, but by then it was too late for work."
"At 10 o'clock according to the time code? Isn't that you here Schaller, with the ladies on your shoulders? So you had your back? And why are you wearing a thong with the logo of our police from Aicha vorm Wald? We will have to clarify that now but on to the Matoschka."

By now the scent was very carried by these rich floral notes, it almost became too much for Wensker. The pina colada chlorine blend intensified, now the coconut peeked out, not creamy coconut but refreshing and clear, yet olfactorically enhanced. Two extremes, the chlorine and the flowers were combined and it smelled...yes, exceptionally well captured. Intense but wearable.
So they drove to the shop of Michael Matuschka. The latter was conferring with his employees, a grumpy bald man and the slightly hunchbacked woodsman. For a moment Wensker had to think of his ex-wife.
"Good afternoon everyone! Police here, we have a few questions!"
"I admit everything, I did it!" the bald man cried, sobbing like a three-year-old who had just had her bar of chocolate taken away. "I planted five primroses but charged for six! Take me away!"
"That's not why we're here at all, it's about the dead guy in the swimming pool."
"Oh, I see. That wasn't me. That was the...uh, I don't know, I don't know anything, nobody told me anything, I didn't have to pick anybody up at the pool last night."
"Out with it! Or I'll rip your leather jacket like it's a purple chicken."
"The boss did it."

With that said, Matoshka was led away. With his disappearance, the scent emitted also grew quieter, the maritime notes, exuding warmth, took over and enveloped everything. In the background, moss was noticeably present.
"What do you have to say for yourself?"
"He tried to drink all the beer by himself, so I drowned him."
"There will be extenuating circumstances, we all get a little thirsty at times," Haller predicted.

La Piscine is reminiscent of all the more extreme aquatics, which use mineral notes, incense. Here, the fragrance is oriented to the powderiness of Squid paired with the chemical notes of Megamare only to then drop to a justifiable level in terms of expression. Always accompanied by floral and flashy notes reminiscent of other Matos creations such as Jungle Jezebel. Overall, a successful in my eyes aquatic fragrance.

Initially synthetic and aquatic-spicy fresh, a creamy, yet challenging aquatic earthy-floral Summer fragrance, on musky earthy-woody base.

Absolutely an artist piece. You're lying by the pool, on your wet towel and smelling it as it dries on concrete.
