Copal Azur by Aedes de Venustas Review
If Copal Azur evoked images of the sea with its name alone, then you’d be right on the money with the association as this is purportedly inspired by the Mediterranean—and to us, this is airy, fresh and clean, with blasts of some salty notes to make the ocean nearer than it is. As it progresses, it provides with warmth and spices, and later on a creamy feeling, which we do not mind at all. However, some of us may not be too fond of incense and could potentially find it overbearing in the fragrance.
We feel that the opening is bright and crisp
The salty notes help bring a more Mediterranean feel to the scent
Gives off warmth and some spiciness by the drydown
Might smell unusual compared to other fragrances branded as a copal scent
The addition of incense may be an issue for others
Save Big At:
Aedes de Venustas is not unique in wanting to contain the Mediterranean in a perfume bottle, but it manages to do a good job by incorporating its signature incense accord together with cardamom, patchouli, amber, tonka and myrrh. The fresh and aromatic combination is credited to its perfumer, Bertrand Duchaufour. Its flacon is identical to other perfume bottles from the house’s roster of fragrances. The scent was introduced in 2014.
