Unique concept, lovely scent, longevity is so-so
I bought this on a whim as I fell in love with the whisicality of the concept of this roll on perfume. I love the suspended lavender buds and the gold cap of the packaging, The box it came in with was also very lovely, very artsy minimalist. But what drew me to the product was just simply because of the unique brand name and the name of this perfume as I have always loved the ocean and have always fancied myself a little bit of a mermaid. So maybe by using this perfume, it can transform me into a mermaid :) Anyway, backstory aside, I was expecting this to be a fruity-floral scent as described here but what I got instead was a very woodsy scent. I can smell grapefruit as the top note but it fades away fast leaving you with a strong scent of neroli and patchouli until it dries down to it's base carrier oil of jojoba ( i think?). The degree of the scent when worn is pretty moderate, it does not smell too strong which I love. And I find the scent wearable for everyday. However, I was a little bit disappointed with the longevity as I expected it to stay on me longer as this is an oil based perfume, but the scent only lasts on me for about 4-5 hrs. Nonetheless, I like the concept and I love the fact that the scent is so unique.
