    I cannot think of anything exactly like this, but:

    For fizzy, fresh champagne I'd say the standard is Kenzo Flower (it doesn't have much moss/amber drydown though), which, according to Luca Turin, is the reincarnation of the old Royal Bain de Caron, now disfigured by reformulations.

    Two excellent things that move from fruity-citrusy to floral, with a fizzy/fuzzy aspect, to more ambery mossy drydowns are 31 rue Cambon by Chanel and Promesse de l'Aube by Parfums MDCI.

    If you are willing to toss chocolate and much tangerine sweetness in the mix, Missoni also satisfies most requirements.

    I'm afraid a perfumer would consider a concoction as that a bit disgusting. Champagne (that kind) plus sea water is oysters isn't violet isn't oranges. The heavy all-You-can-put-in basnotes are conflicting with the top/mids. An orris centered floral oriental chypre marine with aldehydes 8-)

    Those notes took me to this fragrance, which I am considering for the spring/summer:

    Eau de Pamplemousse Rose Perfume
    by Hermes
    Eau de Pamplemousse Rose has a classical structure, with citruses in the main role, combined with rose, by Jean-Claude Ellena. This modern and sophisticated interpretation of citruses theme intertwines their sparkles with a molecule by the house of Firmenich-Rhubofix, which possesses a very fresh, woody-spicy, floral scents and rose scent. The fragrance includes the following aromas lemon, pink grapefruit and rhubofix.

    eau de gloire parfum d'empire
    Dia man Amouage
    comme des garçons man 2

    Somehow L'Artisan Jour de Fete comes to my mind.
