    Oxygène by Lanvin

    I think this is the most unusual of the ozonic fragrances that I’ve tried—an unusual way of looking at aquatics, and an excellent one. Oxygene is quite floral with a very smooth subtle wood base. The opening is translucently floral—gardenia and iris—with a white pepper touch that makes it more interesting and elegant; there’s also a bit of sharpness to the accord. The touch of pepper and the iris note are ingenious elements that contribute to Oxygene’s unexpected richness. Imagine that—a wonderful elegance and richness incorporated into a genuinely fresh ozonic fragrance. The dry down is a light sandalwood and delicate white musk with traces of the gardenia still contributing to the subtle and transparent aura. Over the years I’ve come to have a lot of respect for Lanvin fragrances, and this one is no exception—another excellent fragrance from an excellent company.
