Falling Into the Sea fragrance notes

Reviews of Falling Into the Sea

Falling Into the Sea opens with a blast of mixed citrus and lychee, and the floral side comes out more in the drydown. It's a pleasant scent that isn't cloying citrus-y, sweet, or floral, so I imagine this should be pretty agreeable lighter, summer scent within the Imaginary Authors collection.

Fruity (even citrus) and floral usually ring for me, and the case is the same here, but only slightly. A man could certainly pull this off as a summer day scent, as (although I cannot detect the sand note per se--it may be a bit of a joke like "tennis ball" in The Soft Lawn) it does remind me a bit of the beach, just not as much as Kramer's The Beach.

Longevity-wise, it falls between Mosaic, which was disappointing (especially for an EDP), and the more wintry fragrances of Cape Heartache and Memoirs of a Trespasser, both of which showed great longevity. After 7 hours, a workout, and a shower, FITS still has some projection on my skin, albeit less than a foot. Not one I'll be buying, but still a good entry.

Review by Buysblind

Falling Into the Sea opens with a big litchi note--juicy and robust. If you've never smelled litchi before, it kind of falls somewhere between pear, apricot, and peach. The litchi is backed by exotic flowers along the lines of mimose and lotus. As a result, this fragrance has a very tropical feel, and perhaps to call it a "tropical aquatic" is most appropriate. While I never detect a specific "sand" note, there is definitely a salty, beach-like quality that emerges about 20 minutes in to complete the picture. What you're left with is something of a fantastical impression of a tropical beach--a place close to one's imagination though somewhat displaced from reality. This works because for the most part the ingredients used in Falling Into the Sea feel natural enough to permit such an imaginative leap--your impression isn't jarred by harsh synthetics or scratchy aroma chemicals that remind you immediately that what you're smelling is fake. Yes, the notes are somewhat fantastical, but they are not so much chemical. In turn, the ingredients allow space for your mind to wander.To that extent, I think this fragrance is a success.

As the fragrance hits the one hour mark, the litchi subsides to a degree and the florals become more apparent.

Although labeled as unisex, I'm more inclined to consider this a feminine fragrance. The exotic florals and big litchi note just seem better suited for a woman to wear. Though I don't mind smelling it on my arm at the moment, I probably wouldn't feel completely comfortable wearing this out in public. However, for women, I think this is a viable option in this category and definitely worth exploring.

Projection is quite powerful and longevity is solid.

Pros: Alluring tropical aroma, Quality ingredients, Unique aquatic
Cons: Too feminine for the average guy, Not truly "unisex""
