Typically I don't care much for the name of a perfume. Either it is just too abstract to make anything of it or it creates false expectations. In this case, though, I find the name very well-chosen. It triggers a certain mood and leaves enough room for imagination. It complements the scent.

The trip begins with a walk in green nature. A vibrant green galbanum with herbs and citrus, not very far from Chanel's Cristalle. A similarity that seems to end when the scent progresses and we approach seaside. In this moment, a salty marine note dominates the scent. I still get the greens and herbs, but only when sniffing my skin. From a distance it is mainly a seabreeze.

After a while, the marine note settles down a bit. It keeps hanging around like the salty smell in clothes after a long day at the shore. Meanwhile the scent progresses to a white florals -jasmin in particular- on a cedar/musk base with vague hints of leather. Eventually some of the Cristalle-greens seem to re-appear. Like we're returning from the shore, walking over the same path that we came here earlier.

A pleasant trip to seaside nature, I must say. A quality scent that plays with the imagination. Although the experience was enjoyable, I wouldn't choose to smell like a salty seabreeze again. But that's more a matter of personal preference.
