True to their heritage of using innovative materials it is built around a new fresh smelling molecule designed especially for Porsche Design by Anne Flipo and Bruno Jovanovic named Arctical. This provides a striking cold metallic accord which is tempered by aromatic notes and warm woody tones

    I'm not into fast Euro cars but the bottle is sublime.

    These notes seem really intriguing. I found my brain trying to put the pieces together, coming up with a cool, foresty modern minimalist scent. I can't wait to smell it actually.

    It sounds brilliant. I love the idea of discussing the synthetics involved in fragrance in the same way we talk about 'May Rose' or 'Indian Sandalwood' - it feels more honest as well as innovative.

    I am not optimistic. I didn't like any of the Jaguar scents or the Hummers. I am not saying that this one is no different. Perhaps it is the best thing since sliced bread?? Either way, I don't mind waiting for the reviews.

    I am also quite eager to catch a sniff of this. I am hoping they have captured a bit of the essence of a cold forest morning in that sleek bottle. "Cold forest morning" is not to be confused with "Cold morning woods," of course.

    Smelled this today. The bottle reminded me of M7. The scent is kinda like MB's Prescence, but more natural (easy task). It's still pretty synthetic, in a new car smell kinda way. Very futurisitc, space-age style. Menthol and juniper, with some mild pepper. Not bad, I may buy it. Seems ideal for spring (especially) and summer. In 30, 50 and 100 ml bottles.
