Clarins was always a company for good cosmetics and I never got the urge to try their scent. It always felt like a splash edt that they had and could sell along with the creams.
Now I know better. 🙂
I got a sample in a swap and from the instant I applied it, I felt better.
To me it smells like a really good cologne, exactly the one that I would fit into my collection as it has all the hallmarks I find lovely in perfumes.
It has an energetic citrusy opening (the peel one along with the sparkly soda feeling) and what I like to call evergreen freshness.
Then, it also has a light spiciness to it so it’s not completely innocent.
All that time you can smell the light sweetness and warmth in the base but on this summer day, you are refreshed and feel cool because Dynamisante is taking care of you.
It’s not spectacular, innovative, strong or perfumey for that matter, but it’s energising and dynamic and refreshing. It doesn’t pretend to be other than that.
And I won’t pretend I don’t need a bottle for next summer. 🙂
Top notes are orange, coriander, caraway and amalfi lemon; middle notes are rosemary, carnation and cardamom; base note is patchouli.
