Unexpected Beacon in the Scent Seascape
White Whale is an enigmatic perfume that transcends the traditional confines of fragrances. This aquatic wonder caught me off guard with its unexpected surge of brightness, offering an invigorating freshness that dances in a rhythmic synergy with its spicy undertones.

Its marine-inspired aroma can be likened to an unexpected summer breeze, carrying whiffs of the distant salty sea which tickle your senses in a tantalizing dance. The cooling notes are refreshing and make it a standout in the warmer months, creating a beautifully balanced cooling effect that's not overpoweringly cold. It shines especially bright in cooler summer weather, a testament to its exquisite composition.

Its unique mix of fresh, floral, and green accords adds to its depth, creating a scent that leaves an indelible impression. The floral and green notes add an earthy quality that grounds the fragrance, providing a counterpoint to the breezy marine notes. This delicate balance results in a sophisticated and refreshing aroma that leaves you craving for more.

However, the beauty of White Whale lies in its complexity. It's a scent you need to acclimate to, a fragrance that requires some time to fully appreciate. The initial brightness and marine notes might catch you off guard, but as the scent settles, you find a tantalizing cocktail that keeps you coming back.

In conclusion, White Whale is a revelation in the world of fragrances. Its beautifully balanced accords create an unforgettable scent story that is at once bright, refreshing, and complex. It's not for the faint-hearted, but for those willing to embrace its surprising elements, it's a perfume that promises to make a splash.

Lovely composition
Opening is very interesting, smells like brine-y ocean salt, like you’d imagine a salt crusted boat to smell like. It’s almost as if you can smell the salt from the ocean via a breeze, travelled through the air. Not sure how to describe it honestly. It is somewhat harsh at the opening. As it got to the heart, the osmanthus and violet started coming through, made it smell less harsh, and more airy and floral. The fragrance smoothed out quite a lot as it went through the heart and into the base of the dry down, probably due to the ambergris note.
Definitely a fascinating take on aquatics!

This is truly, a work of art. Really. Just break off from the trends and standards, see past the note breakdown, find the story in it.

opens mineral and immediately with fruity osmanthus, something floral and aquatic. Interesting

Orris-driven (iris + ambergris I guess?) open, aquatic heart & drydown. I get hints of the MM green incense that I hate. Just basic/boring.

I usally don’t like Marine-aquatics, but here the majesty of blending all those aspects with an ambergris accord mixed with florals is great
