My idea of a fragrance, unisex or for men, is like this:
It should be cool and solid; remind the smell of wet sand and wind, rain, lagoons and bulrushes.
It should give the skin the feeling of being touched by a pebble. It should be grey, shouldn’t be cold or warm but still and silent, contain the same deep emotions a moody landscape can convey. If I think of a texture it should be slightly oily…
It shouldn’t have a flavour, no spice, no sweetness, no salt. Could be bitter like freshwater can be.
If I had to market this fragrance I wouldn’t give it French or English names; its connotations should lead to remote or unknown places. It should be an object with its own smell, rather than a perfume.
