Abe Sapien

Recommended Posts

ABE SAPIEN
A soft aquatic musk with kelp and juniper.


Abe Sapien - This is a heavy aquatic scent. It's not a fresh aquatic nor a marine aquatic, but falls somewhere between the two -- more like a brackish-water aquatic. It's a full-bodied scent, very cologne-like in an after-shave kind of way. I think it's more of a masculine blend (as the name suggests), although I don't really want my guy to smell like this, as it's really, really heavy.

in my opinion this is a very fresh and clean scent. in fact while wet, it smells very much like soap, a lot like Cthulu. after a while, the soapiness dies down and the individual notes become more apparent. i get a very pleasent masculine musk along with juniper, i'm not sure if i'm picking up on the kelp because i have no idea what kelp smells like.

As Abe Sapien is one of my favorite characters in the Hellboy comic....I just had to try this. I am soooooo glad that I did. This is a gorgeous blue green aquatic. It smells like Abe to a tee. I really want to get in the tank with him and swim around and smell him. :lol: It is just that gorgeous.

Strong aquatic cologne. It was interesting to try this next to the Gris Grimly Fit of Artistic Enthusiasm (?) decant I had on my other arm. THey were both aquatic, but Abe had a rich and manly, dark, water at the bottom of the ocean with kelpy bits swimming in it feel to it. Where Fit was closer to Calico Jack, Abe was closer to Cthulhu or one of the other aquatic Picnic in Arkham blends.

Sweet & aquatic musk. Definitely has cologne qualities to it. It borders on being "soapy" on my skin, but never fully crosses over.

 

I find it intriguing and keep placing my arm under my nose repeatedly. Still cannot decide though if it would be worth an entire bottle. I think probably not, though I do enjoy the 1/2 decant I have.

Bright lime. There is nothing soft about it, this is energizing. It settles down, and finally the musk comes through.

So there is a bit of lime on this wet, and then its a pretty manly aquatic. Both me and kid zz tried this on ---- a little too manly on me, and he thought it was a pretty nice smell. ;)

 

Pretty strong throw and wear length.

Sniffing this in the bottle, it's like being attacked by soapy laundry. I get that clean soap and damp clothes smell. It's really strong and intense. I can smell a little bit of high pitched saltiness here as well.

 

On my skin, this reminds me of a bar of soap. It smells like classic Zest soap to me. It's leaning slightly to the masculine side of things. I think that Abe Sapien is the soapiest scent that I've ever tried. It makes me a little bit queasy when I smell it. It's so strong that I can practically taste it, which makes me feel like someone crammed a bar of soap into my mouth :/.

 

Aquatics often turn soapy on my skin, but this is insanely soapy and strong. I won't wear this one again.

Very soft, salty, watery musk with a hint of lime. I was worried it would be overly soapy and astringent but it's actually quite nice on my skin. On my partner this is almost like an aquatic version of Dorian. Now that the bottle is almost gone I may have to get a back up. :)

*Edited due to realizing how I DO need this in my life. ;)

Lovely, goes really sharp and slightly soapy on me in a matter of seconds. Not so sharp that it's unpleasant!
Is a looooot like Thalassa, the Galapagos mermaid on me, but that one after a couple of days of wear made me feel slightly queasy (I blame the almond and amped up salt to a crazy level) but this one seems to stay in the comfortable to wear zone. No surprise that sweet Abe would smell like this! :smilenod:

I've discovered that me and aquatics don't usually get along, but Abe is my dude so I had to give this a shot. And I actually like it pretty well! Honestly, the drydown on it goes almost incense/resin-y on me, which is weird. But it's nice, and I've actually received a few compliments on it in just a day of wear.
