Lovely!

I’m so glad this was brought back this year. I fell in love with it last year and I had even forgotten just how amazing it is. Even though the notes are unusual and you wouldn’t expect them to work, they work in such a WOW way. I’ve never smelled anything like this.

This is really like a trip to a summer boardwalk in a dream. It’s ocean and clean and then you have these unexpected aromas of iced coffee and bubblegum which are so subtle that they add magic without overtaking the whole fragrance. It’s like how when you are walking by something and you gather aromas of this and that along the way. It’s so very well blended and a true testament to K’s artistry. The bubblegum note in here is beautiful and I’d love to see it more prominently featured in another perfume. Here, it’s just enough, but when you do catch a wind of it it’s so nice.

Takes Me Back

I was 13 in the summer of 1990 and we went to visit my relatives in California and we went to the Santa Cruz boardwalk. This takes me back to a time when I was a freshly minted teenager sporting my cutoff jeans, prized United Colors of Benetton tee, and white Keds.

The dominant scent is pink bubblegum mixed with a sort of breezy ocean air, although there is nothing that screams "aquatic" here in the classic sense- I can't tell where the ocean breeze ends and the saltwater taffy shop begins, but it works. I would caution those looking for stronger coffee scents to know that it's barely detectable here other than as a ubiquitous sweetened iced latte with melted ice. I know that coconut is lending a summer vibe here, but it is very subtle. It's truly a seamless combination of notes.

This is a great gourmand summer scent for those who might be seeking a boardwalk vibe without the fried foods or kettle corn. It's sweet, light, and breezy. I would highly recommend to those who have enjoyed some of Black Baccara's other sweet, nostalgic scents like 1983 and Summer 1989.

Took me right back

I can smell all of the notes in this one by one on the dry down and they are blended so well that no particular notes stand out in particular when it’s fully dried down —it’s just this perfect blend of 90s summer. Really felt like I was being drawn back in time with this one. Bubblegum, sand, ocean breeze, some coconut.....such a unique and wonderful fragrance! I will be getting a few extra bottles before this one is gone so that I can smell it during the winter months.
