This fragrance, inspired by Erolfa, captures the breezy scent of the sea, and the warmth of the Mediterranean coastline. The high-quality ingredients create a complex, layered effect. First, you’ll notice juicy notes of citrus and melon, complemented by caraway and freshly cut leaves. Then, as the hours pass, the other aromas come into play; cyclamen, spicy ginger and pepper, and fresh pine. These are rounded off by an intense hit of oak moss, ambergris and cedar.
Great service and prompt delivery (next day). I ordered a 5ml tester of this along with a couple of others. I don't know the original fragrance so can't compare directly, but I'm intrigued by the strongly herbal scent of this copy. On my skin I don't really pick up any of the citrus or melon top notes but I do get herbal scents of basil (original fragrance top note), fresh bay leaf and a slightly astringent hint of caraway. Later this fades to reveal black pepper and maybe a hint of pine. Not as long lasting as I'd like - I gave after a couple of squirts to my collar in the morning and was pretty much "nose-blind" after about three hours, but I think an additional one on the wrists would improve the longevity as I did still pick up the occasional waft. I probably need to give this another couple of wears though to decide if it's for me.
