Arrived on the market in 2010, He Wood Ocean Wet Wood is a flanker to the already classic He Wood, introduced by DSQUARED2 3 years before, in 2007. Since the original made me a pleasant surprise, I was keen to test this re-interpretation that promised to deliver the aroma of a huge and never explored ocean. He Wood Ocean Wet Wood belongs to the woody aquatic olfactory group and was developed by perfumers Alberto Morillas and Daphne Bugey.
The composition from He Wood Ocean Wet Wood is built around the three main accords that are mentioned in its name: Ocean, Wet and Wood. The opening of this fragrance represents a mixture of violet and transparent sea water note. Later, in no more than 20 minutes, the heart reveals its wet accords, through the sophisticated introduction of violet leaves notes, juxtaposed by Artemisia and Tonka bean. For the dry down, the woody facet is perceived in the aroma of cedarwood, swathed in a blend of patchouli, musk, vetiver and amber.
He Wood Ocean Wet Wood comes in a bottle that brings to mind the form of the classic He Wood with the transparent glass revealing a blue colored liquid (the original was grey!) like a suggestion to the relaxing atmosphere of the blue ocean. The wood that enfolds the bottle rims has a pale brown color, compared to the more intense shade found in the original. Overall, He Wood Ocean Wet Wood is a bracing fragrance, ideal for the beginning of the spring or the scorching summer days.
