This opens with a fresh, ozonic accord, somehow mineral & faintly metallic. I'm not sure what papaya smells like, but there is a juiciness here that suggests lime, & after ten minutes the whole thing becomes much more fruity. One hour in, delicate floral notes combine with the fruit, creating a kind of 'pale green' aura. After three hours, there's a soft musk which is slowly sweetened by tonka in the base. From here it all fades to a skin scent, but is still detectable eleven hours in.
This has none of the tension or darkness that I would associate with a storm, & is much more subtle in its approach than the similarly-named, acrid scent that is Demeter's Thunderstorm. It does, however, suggest the freshness of a dew-laden orchard, & although it's a little too fruity for my taste, I think I might enjoy it more in the springtime.
A moderately interesting concoction of herbs and flowers with fruity nuances. Not as banal as one would expect from this types of compositions yet far from being a standout. The fragrance suffers form a watery/aquatic presence adding an unpleasant and slightly weird undertone.
From a fragrance named Strom, I expected something more edgy or, at least, some tension...
I'd say it's a fresh fruity floriental. Nice and unique but doesn't hold my interest. If I wanted to describe this scent with imagery using the name, a tropical sea breeze just before a rain shower.
I like the hyacinth, and it pairs well with the tonka. If I recall the scent of delphinium correctly, it is a bit like carnation, and that is a nice touch. I could do without the added fruitiness, though.
Beautiful natural aromas… a unique fragrance … hard to classify except that I find it quite masculine: The pyramid says papaya and lime for the top notes, but the opening to me doesn’t smell tropical or fruity in the least: I get a rustic earthy smell, part vegetal, part mineral, summarily interesting. It retains that rustic accord for quite a while, gradually yielding to a kinder, gentler floral that smells purple – I can’t think of any other way to describe it. Even though the scent has turned primarily floral, it keeps a pretty good hold on its masculinity by hinting at a marine background. I don’t get much of a change in accords after the scent turns to its middle; it becomes quite linear after that and holds onto that purple accord as a skin scent for two or three hours. As is the norm for Neil Morris fragrances, Storm presents a restrained, balanced sillage and at least a medium longevity.
