Reviews of Water

Meh. I smell mostly a mix of linden blossom and chamomile tea. The linden isn't very realistic (for the best linden blossom ever made in perfumery, check out Diptyque's Tilleul - sorry only available in candle form!) It actually comes off more like a thin orange blossom cut with some sort of watery melon note. It's oddly indolic at first spray, giving a strangely "off" boozy smell, but that fades quickly as Water slips into its comfortable chamomile/blossom/cucumber mix. It smells sort of citrusy, but not like any specific fruit, and vaguely like honey, but not really. It's not bad (though I'm really not sure about the inclusion of that aquatic melon element), but not excitingly good either. I think it smells more like spa products than a fine perfume, honestly.

Mild, soft, pretty. Smells like lovely, creamy soap and flowers. A young, innocent smell. I guess that the linden blossom has prominence here. Despite the floral notes it is not too sweet and it certainly is not heavy. Perhaps unisex, but I'd say aimed a female market.

The sample card portrays the notes in this way:
Top: coriander, linden blossom, mint
Heart: lemon, blue camomile
Base: --
