Reviews of Anse Turquoise

Musky detergent floral soapiness. Not an "accomplished fragrance" according with my humble standards, zero structure, overuse of synthetic, "boisterous" soapiness, disturbing laudriness. Manuel Canovas Anse Turquoise opens in a weirdly plastic yet sophisticated floral way (vaguely conjuring the Andrea Maack's kind of translucent hyperbaric-muffled style). I get soapy-industrial "dirty-detergent" feel, hints of sweaty warmth (hot and moldy) and finally a notable ylang-ylang's presence surrounded by tons of geraniol-linalool-galaxolide. Balminess is really "neutral", straightforward and typically soapy-detergent (floral notes are just a subtle addition). Jasmine (faint in presence) and citronellol master the scene on the side of laundry muskiness and spicy-detergent lily of the valley. I appreciate the floral ylang/ylang's sophisticated twist (ylang-ylang/lily/musk) but frankly it is not enough in order to avoid this juice to be perceived as a bath-foam more than a structured fragrance. Sorry.

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.
