Apparition Sky is the new flanker to 2004’s Aparition, a fragrance which enjoyed a quite high popularity, given that it lead to a number of re-interpretations: 2006’s Apparition Sun and 2007’s Apparition Facets. Presented in 2008, Apparition Sky is described by the official press release as “a talisman that evokes lightness, happiness, joy and freedom”.
With the usual classic olfactory pyramid that has its top, heart and base notes, Apparition Sky is a feminine floral woody musk that might be considered a well-behaved fragrance, however to be absolutely objective, it did not offered me something interesting, every time when I sampled it.
The bottle that contains Apparition Sky is replicating the shape from the original perfume with this name, except that, at this time, the transparent glass was decorated with little bits of transparent and blue colored squares that evoke the clear sky during a calm summer day. The packaging box is matching the same color scheme, while the squares have a silver shade in this case.
The opening in Apparition Sky is a blend of refreshing citruses that are preparing the atmosphere for the upcoming phases of the perfume. The top notes include, bergamot, star fruit and apple. Then, as the perfume easily moves into a floral mid development, the aroma of cyclamen is unveiled, juxtaposed to notes of lotus. Finally, when the scent enters the dry down phase, the woody facet becomes available, in a combination that includes cedar wood and sensual musk. One interesting detail is that the fragrance was introduced in Asia with one year in advance, compared to the global market. This was maybe an interesting marketing strategy, or just something that reflected a dedication towards one of the largest markets.
