The opening of Anse Turquoise is loud and clear: an almost-cloying blast of fresh-sweetish floral notes with a palpable sort of aqueous-creamish texture, basically more or less the smell of a floral-fruity shampoo (galaxolide) with a less “foamy” and more “mineral” watery substance. The fresh flowers here smell nice, but quite plain and boring: that type of “whatever” floral accords in which you hardly separate the notes – just “something” commonly, reassuringly floral. They don’t smell particularly cheap or metallic, though; just a bit generic. Overall I wouldn’t say Anse Turquoise is bad, but surely not that great too; shortly, a big “meh...”. In my opinion it is as much decent as fairly uncreative and boring, with no particular reasons to prefer it over any other generic (average-to-mediocre) floral scent on the market. The persistence is good, though - but identical for hours. I don’t know the price of this, and whether this is niche or not, but personally I wouldn’t consider it worthy any money above a half dollar per ml.
