Slate Black Clouds Tumbled Over Eden

Recommended Posts

Clouds massing east of Eden: a rapidly darkening sky blasted by thundercrack of ozone, blast of cold, black rain, punctuated by a thin flicker of amber.

I don't really tend towards ozones or aquatics (as they often turn to soap on my skin), but something about this one was calling to me. 

 

For the first half hour, it smells of cold water full of soap suds, the ozone gives it an electric sharpness, and there's a hint of earthiness (like black potting soil) and a warm, nutty amber.  It's soapy, but it also really does smell like black clouds, cold rain, and a storm rolling in.  It comes off as pleasantly clean, but with an edge of darkness and a sharp jolt of electricity.  An angry, feisty sort of clean.

After a half hour, this is less soapy and smells very much like the scent of cold raindrops falling on to a hot summer sidewalk.  Clean, slightly green, a hint of citrusy ozone, and that earthy-industrial concrete smell.

I really thought that this was going to be a bad blind buy for me, but I love it.

Ozone, cold rain and whiff of amber. It dries down to ozone, cold rain, and a whiff of thunder. This is a nice clean, aquatic. Gender neutral. Very wearable. Good throw and wear length.

I'm always intrigued by thunderstorm scents, but most aquatics go to Soaptown on me, sadly, this one is not an exception.

Beneath the strong soap/dryer sheet cloud, I get some of the things Little Bird mentioned in their review: a twang of earthiness (I thought vetiver), cold rain, and concrete. And I really enjoy the cold rain and concrete aspects of the scent. But the ozone is really strong, and well, SOAPY on me. It softens somewhat after a few hours, it's still a main player on me (although the rain note has gained strength by this point). In the background, there's a touch of warm amber, but it's waaaay behind the cloud of ozone and rain.

This is a nice, clean aquatic scent for those whose skin chemistry does better with aquatics (and ozone in particular).
