Reviews of Sydney Rock Pool

Seashore scenery such as beaches and rock pools is something nearly everyone likes and is therefore borrowed to sell all manner of perfumes even if there is no real connection. I'm not too sure if that's the case here however as I've never been to Sydney or its rock pool.

Anyway it's very pleasant scent whose main theme is lactonic (coconut or gorse) with a subtle sandalwood shading and a gentle undercurrent of woody amber. The woody aspect recalls Serge Luten's Miel du Bois.

Another comparable scent is AOD, a rather nice sea beach offering from a company called Lostmarch in Brittany, so perhaps there is really something to this type of coastal interpretation.

I believe the fragrance originates from Givaudan, and it does seem to have that aura about it.

Sydney Rock Pool answers the question, "What if Tom Ford Oud Minerale was actually good?"

The seaweed-mineral heart of both fragrances are practically identical, but Rock Pool's floral-coconut-skin-driftwood accents offer a much more nuanced, delicate frame for it than Oud Minerale's uninteresting and linear smoky-woody backdrop. Accordingly, Rock Pool offers more fascination as it develops on the skin.

When itís empty, the half moon of Bondi Beach resembles a sea shell or a coconut sliver, with its white strip of sand bending crescent around a blue water. But itís never empty. Bondiís always awash with people, itís always covered in tropical lotions, cheap and cheerful. If you can smell the sandalwood, itís because the furniture is sweating like the rest of us. If the salt glitters in the breeze above the beach, blame the harsh light, blame the hole in ozone, blame the sun for burning all the air out of the sky. If you can smell the kelp itís on the tide from the harbor. If you can smell the Jasmine, itís on the breeze from the botanical gardens.

Take a break, get a drink at Icebergs. Think about jumping in the pool. The oceanís right over there! But everyone knows the pool looks better from the ocean and the ocean looks better from the pool.

This takes me back.
Notes: Ocean air, surf and seaweed, good foreign suntan lotion and light florals over tropical fruits.
Sillage: solid.
Projection: good on warm skin.
Longevity: 6 hours
