WANT opens with so much fizziness, so many aldehydes! It’s a bitter green lemon seltzer water. Underneath all of this I get fresh from the garden herbs and burnt sugar. With time it becomes a glass of lemon juice with toasted sugar cubes. This adds warmth more than it does sweetness. The dry-down is a fresh mossy citrus.
I love that this fragrance is active. I wasn’t there to experience the complete performance with dancers, music, lights and fragrance but I see the movement when I smell WANT. I get “Viva Las Vegas” from this – energetic, a little campy and 100% fun.
*Nobody takes me out dancing because I always enter the club and dance around like a stoned Elvis in “Viva Las Vegas” – finger pointing and all.
Notes listed include aldehydes, galbanum, jasmine, lemon, oakmoss, lemongrass, Mysore sandalwood, sweet basil and a sugar cube accord. Launched 2013.
Give WANT a try if you like refreshing citrus fragrances. Or if you like perfumes like Vero Kern Mito, Balmain Pour Monsieur, vintage Jean Naté splash, Fresh Lemon Sugar, Sisley Eau de Campagne and/or Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom. WANT is completely unisex and a great perfume for daily wear, especially daily wear in warmer climates.
Projection is below average and longevity is average.
The mini retails for $40 at DSH Perfumes. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Energetic lemon sugar over a green mossy base. Being a lover of scents like Balmain Pour Monsieur, Jean Naté and Sisley Eau de Campagne, I love this fragrance. If I lived in a warm climate, I’d have gallons of this stuff around.
