    Horizon by Guy Laroche

    This is a very fresh fragrance, but by no means "Aquatic", it is a kind of dark, bitter freshness, bitter probably due to the grapefruit, geranium, carnation combination plus artemisia in abundance, and dark due to some coniferous elements with patchouli that conveys the idea of the deepest confines of a dense forest.
    The species bring life to this perfume creating a lighter, airy sensation but still with a heavy and melancholic feeling that would have been too gloomy without them .
    The drydown is a mossy patchouli sweetened up by a touch of amber and lots of woods. If there is one word to define this perfume is "Different", there is nothing in the market that comes even close to it.
    And as Johnson would have said: You can call me fresh, you can call me refreshing, you can call me vivid, you can even call me sharp, but you don't have to call me aquatic.
    Tumbs up to the uniqueness if this scent.
