Airy Woods...
Oxygen opens with straight synthetic rubbing alcohol-like aldehydes with a faint hint of vague woods in the background. As the composition enters its early heart the aldehydes remain, joining soft pink pepper in support as the vague woods firm into the starring cedar taking command, coupling with co-staring sharp vetiver. During the late dry-down the composition softens considerably as the woods and vetiver gradually fade though never completely vacating, as powdery orris from the base couples with relatively clean musk through the finish. Projection is below average with the composition little more than a skin scent and longevity average at 7-9 hours on skin.

Oxygen is easily the most immediately likable composition of the entire nu_be line to date. It is so light and airy at first that you almost forget you are wearing it at all, smelling synthetic in a *good* way. When the woods start to assert themselves along with the vetiver in the heart, the composition sharpens up but its gentle nature even during the sharpening never really goes away. Cedar and vetiver have always made a fine couple and in Oxygen it is no exception. The weakest part of the composition is the late dry-down as it fades to near nothingness all too soon, and what is there is a fine powdery sheen that does not really standout over other compositions in the genre. That said, the dry-down is always pleasant, and it confirms the ease of wearing the composition anywhere. I could easily see Oxygen making a fine office fragrance if one works in close quarters with others as its pleasant nature coupling with its poor projection make it a very safe bet. The bottom line is the $150 per 100ml Oxygen is not "the bees knees" and never distinguishes itself plowing new ground for the genre, but it smells great at all times and is well-composed by Antoine Lie earning it a "very good" 3.5 star out of 5 rating and a recommendation for those looking for something that is safe but not boring.
