About this deal

The florals seemed out of place to me when I compared the two formulations, and I could easily live without them, but they are well-balanced and give more freshness to the composition. Got a vintage bottle 7 years ago from a friend that was cleaning out her room when she was moving to a new apartment. Another vintage that opens all sour like, “ooh, I’m going to hate it,” only to dry down into something soft and beautiful.

I'm surprised not to see any patchouli in it, because to my nose and to my skin, there definitely is a note of patchouli in it. It begins with an almost vintage feel through the interaction of aldehydes, rosewood, bergamot, rose-jasmin, tangerine, mellow fruits, herbs and vetiver. This is a new bottle and I was a kid in the 90s, but I have no problems with the modern reformulation.

I learned the lesson well that the infrequent dose makes it all the more special, and that I should never overindulge its singular trip. It is built of contradictions: aloof, distant, but inviting; somehow cold …and sensual at the same time. A fragrance belonging to the oriental woody olfactory family unique in the world of perfumery for its surprisingly unusual sandy aroma in perfumes. I picked it because Isabella Rossalini was the marketing face and I, a diehard Lynch fan, adored her. I’m finding it so hard to express my feelings and opinions about this one…but all I can say is that since I first tested it I’ve bought 3 bottles (including one original formula)…all within 1 month.

Products without packaging are identical to the testers and they are recomended for personal use only. Put a few pinches in an oil burner, light a tea light underneath and within minutes the dust will start releasing the fragrance and it will continue to scent up your room for around an hour or even more. In the heart of the fragrance we find a floral bouquet composed of lily, jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose and small doses of wallflower that awaken the romantic and feminine side of the perfume. This is an afternoon at the beach, at the end of Summer, when the sun has started setting and you feel the pressure lowering and you get that smell of approaching rain. Dune is that quiet corner of the room where there’s an open window welcoming a warm breeze; where you can collect your thoughts and feel present in the moment.Yes, I like old-school perfumes, almost everything from Sofia Grojsman or perfumers of similar caliber and time. Another excellent alternative is the YSL Libre Eau de Parfum is also a floral fragrance with top notes: lavender, mandarin orange, black currant and petitgrain Emporio Armani lei/elle/she/ella also features a cedar and vanilla base, but the top notes are luscious citrus with white floral notes of lily of the valley and jasmine making up the heart. It portrays a landscape where the sun kisses the sea and rays of light gently touch the skin, while the magical ocean breeze brings flowery wafts.
