February 2019 Cologne of the Month: Sydney Rock Pool by Arquiste
Sydney Rock Pool is Scentbird’s February Cologne of the Month, and it’s an excellent choice, seeing as it’s freezing outside and we’d all rather be somewhere warm and sunny.
This mineral, ambery musk fragrance is loaded with everything you’re going to need to seriously get out of your head about winter and into a serene daydream of exotic beach life. Sydney Rock Pool reels you in with a warm, heady blend of sweet jasmine, smooth coconut oil, and a sheer mineral accord for true surfside ambiance. And of course, as this is an Arquiste release, you’re instantly transported to the warmest, sunniest, beach day you’ve ever experienced (in your mind).
Arquiste never fails to sweat the details when it comes to truly evocative perfumes. There’s an authentic sense of place in each of their fragrances, and each selection has a vivid backstory to further fire your imagination for far-off locations. Sydney, Australia’s famous Rock Pools are as close as you can get to having your own private pool in the middle of a natural beach setting, and the exquisite care Arquiste has taken in making sure all the elements of a relaxing seaside ramble are present is obvious.
The mineral accord is a three-dimensional stand-in for slippery rock formations, the deep jasmine note translates quickly into a warm, Australian floral breeze, and coconut oil speaks for itself to any serious sunlight addict.
So we’re forgetting the fact that it has been in the 30s in NYC … give yourself a few minutes of instant Australian Summer with Arquiste’s Sydney Rock Pool, and pretend you’ve got the all-time perfect poolside situation on lockdown until summer catches up with your calendar.
