Coastal Song

by

08th January, 2000

This fragrance captures the duality of the California coast between Big Sur and the Muir Woods. It is both peaceful and dramatic, wet and dry. It is a marine/aquatic with eucalyptus, cyprus and redwood notes. It finishes with just enough oakmoss, patchoulli and vetiver to remind us of California's heat.

This would make suitable artwork for the bottle

        I like the idea of an herbal-aquatic, although it is not necessarily something I'd go for personally. After all the aquatic and fresh fads that abuse notes like melon, grapefruit and detergent-like musks, it would be great to have a quality fragrance that is fresh without being banal.

        The smell of this coastline is indeed one of the most beautiful scents ever. The combination of salt air, moist earth, and all those trees - redwood, eucalyptus, oak, and the amazing Monterey cypress - shocks me every time I smell it. It's so beautiful that I forget just how amazing it is...

        Yes, this is something I would really like to see - a shockingly good use of aquatics. The perennial love for Bulgari Aqua PH is the tip of the iceberg of what is possible. A cypress/redwood aquatic? Something that takes L'Eau d'Issey PH and moves it to where it's more woody, salty, cypress, etc.? Perhaps. A woody coastal smell from the Pacific might be just the thing. Clearly multiple people have found this inspiring, so there has to be a good target here.
