Unique aquatic perfume
The beautiful scent opens with a blast of airy freshness but in seconds it starts to show its character. Soon enough the oud starts appearing but it never dominates everything else. You just feel it is here.

This fragrance is very strong on ambergris, so for some, it might be a little challenging. It is animalic, but not fecal though. The perfume is very complex and so much is going on here. There is a truffle note listed, together with some white flowers. To me, it smells a lot like a chamomille, and it gets a little brightness to the scent. While sniffing the wrist, sometimes I grab some smokiness, so it doesn't let the flowers take the mainline and make the scent too sweet. This perfume also has a little aquatic quality, slightly salty. It helps to keep the freshness in here, and it is so different than any other aquatic fragrances I've ever smelled.

Talking about the performance, the scent is super strong. A couple of sprays are more than enough, and it lasts for hours. But one thing is that it never gets boring. Smelling this perfume is a journey, and every time you can get something different, find something new. This is true art in a bottle.

Is this my favorite from the house? No, I wouldn't say that, even though it is definitely amazing and a great experience to have.

The REAL "Poseidon's Elixir"!
Silencethesea is more than just a perfume... It is a concept, a feeling, a memory. It is art in a bottle.

The ambergris used in this scent creates a fragrance profile you would expect from such a rare and precious ingredient: Salty, musky, slightly sweet with a hint of tobacco leaf, leather-like and possessing an animalic marine scent. The use of the word "aquatic" here does not refer to the usual ingredients that give a fragrance a distinctively fresh, clean, translucent and airy scent. "Aquatic" in this case refers to the deep, dark depths of the ocean. If you've ever been on a cruise ship, in the middle of the ocean, you know what I'm talking about...

What makes silencethesea so special is the apparent ability it gives us to summon, on command, the immense and unstoppable feeling of the power of the sea! In the process, much like Poseidon, it turns us into gods as we become in total control of one of the Four Elements of Nature.

Is it a beautiful scent? It depends: sometimes it is and other times it can be overbearing. I love it for the memories it brings back of visiting my grandparents every summer, in the Mediterranean Sea. Regardless of whether you like this perfume or not, one thing is undeniable: it will make you FEEL something, and to me THAT is art!

"Wearing silencethesea is a modern olfactory adventure like none other, provoking a deeply primal, hypnotic effect." - strangelove nyc website

Magnificent real ambergris!
This is the only fragrance that I know that lets the real ambergris shine in such a magnificent way! The real thing is used here, and it is beautiful. If you have ever wondered about what real ambergris is like - this is the perfume to try if you cannot get your hands on the pure material. It's like an essence of the ocean - wet, fresh, yet as far removed from the 90s male marine classics as possible. Silencethesea is ocean air with fleshy texture, animalic facets, because the seas are huge living organisms, not sterile office freshners. All the other notes are masterfully used to frame the central pillar of the perfume - ambergris. They help bring out its different sides - green, earthy, woody, leathery.

Everybody is free to like whatever rocks their boat and avoid the rest. However, I feel that negative reviews for this fragrance are a consequence of applying the wrong criteria. If you try to evaluate the scent based on its pleasantness and traditional codes of "marine" fresh perfume genre, you'll be disappointed. Because it's like judging ice cubes and ice cream by the same rules - pointless, because these are different things.

Silencethesea is a unique and precious composition that is closer to a work of art than to a fragrance to be worn casually. It provides new and beautiful olfactory experiences, invites on a journey of discovery, touches the soul and the mind.

If Shutter Island had a fragrance.
then she'd probably smell like this.

An island with a lunatic asylum... in the middle of a stormy ocean.

The fragrance starts with a violent salty ocean breeze created by the waves crashing into the rocks.

It has been raining all night and apparently it will not stop for the next 2 hours.

Wooden parts of broken boats and seaweed lie on the rocks. We are far away from a paradise, it's gloomy and uncomfortable.

But suddenly...

The sun fights its way through and slowly the peace returns bit by bit. The sea stands still and the water in the earth, on the wood and the moss begins to evaporate.

After 5 days the first time sun on Shutter Island. Wow.

Now a walk on the beach and we approach this big black block.

So that's it... Amber... doused in salt water that evaporates in the sun. I lie down next to it and take a deep breath, close my eyes and... wake up from my daydream with the bottle in my hand
silencethesea is the Aquat, which is actually none. High quality, predominantly natural ingredients from sustainable sources. The fire should have much more attention. Of course, many are deterred by the price, but one should not forget that here you really have art in your hands and not mass bottling. It is related to "Oud Minerals" over many corners, but has a deeper character, especially in the drydown.

Blindbuy absolutely not recommended, polarizes very much. If you want to rantasten I recommend to buy the oil in the 1.25ml vial.

As I am still at the beginning of my perfumery career, it is still a little difficult for me to smell out individual fragrances. I try to describe it with pictures. Thanks for reading

Silence The Sea
Aquaman (the Jason Momoa version) is swimming back to his Atlantis apartment, but on his way gets distracted by some noises he hears from a century-old shipwreck. He goes down to explore, and after poking through the rotting, murky maze, it turns out some young Atlanteans have opened an exclusive speakeasy in one of the inner rooms. It's decked decked out with a fireplace and couches, and he settles in for a glass of fine ambergris-infused cognac, all the while flirting with the mermaid waitress. Being Aquaman, she can't resist his charms, and eventually he throws everyone else out of the room (you can do that when you're Aquaman) and the two go at it hot and heavy by the fire (which seems slightly dangerous for a mermaid, but whatever)

As they bask in the afterglow, Christophe Laudamiel shows up and scrapes the hot sex sweat off Aquaman, which he then mixes with alcohol and sells for $350 a pop.

You get a sample, and try it on. On you, a man, you think it's dank and sexy. You get lost in the aroma for a moment...

Until your girlfriend sits down next to you on the couch, sniffs, and tells you take a shower because you reek of armpit stank. And then it's there, and you can't unsmell it. And you realize that even Jason Momoa's armpit stank still smells like armpit stank.

The sea goes silent.

A challenging, animalic, yet fresh and salty/dry, aquatic floral-green Spring fragrance, with a 'fishy', metallic salty/spicy green opening.
