It opens like a fresh breeze bringing the smell of rain, wet earth and an intense green scent of foliage after the rain. A light whiff of tropic flowers entwine themselves into the ozonic freshness of the air with the nuances of crushed leaves and wet wood.

A “scented image” is a good name for this collection. To me they are much more “olfactory impressions” than “perfumes”.

According to the creators Dune Road is supposed to be an illustration of:

“Summer walks.
Crisp ocean breeze. Foamy Sand.

Whispers of herbs,
wildflowers & sea grass
from a distance.

Ethereal, captivating
& hazy pleasures.”

Though I recognize the elements from this descriptions in the scent, my own perception of “Dune Road” doesn’t show me much of sea grass and creates the image of a tropical forest after the rain with it’s reach smell of wet soil and sappy green leaves. And on the skin… it’s like running back home after mowing the lawn because of the sudden rain.

Similar fragrances to explore:
As in my own perception “Dune Road” is more about a tropical forest after the rain I’d recommend to try Fleur de Liane by L’Artisan Parfumeur (2008) and may be Jangala from the Collection Croisiere which is a fantasy image of a jungle by Pierre Guillaum.

I was wearing this scent during my walks among the dunes here in Netherlands, on the Texel island. The following image would express my feelings of these fragrant walks.
