Dual by Andrea Maack is inspired by the calming water of the natural hot springs in the Icelandic highlands. This fragrance mimics the feeling of fresh water on the skin and the intense colour spectrum surrounding the hot spring lagoons. The powerful, uplifting aromas of ginger, lemon and pink pepper coexists with the grounded woody elements of dry amber and cedar wood resulting in an enlivening scent experience. A contrast of deep mineral warmth against the arctic air, the deep crimsons and yellow of sunset against a landscape of vivid forest greens and pale whites. This perfume is a striking mixture of notes to recreate the smell of the Icelandic landscape.
Top: Ginger, Lemon
Base: Dry Amber, Pink Pepper
HOW IT WEARS
Opening notes of fresh ginger and lemon here really lift and add a freshness to this otherwise deep, green citrus. Rich and juicy, yet gentle on the skin, the cedar really stands out for the duration of it’s 6 – 8 hour wear, while the pink pepper and amber create a simultaneously fresh and deep dry down that’s long lasting, but never overwhelming.
We adore how this fragrance captures a new kind of citrus. A deep, woody exploration of an experiment less undertaken. An effervescent, slightly aquatic citrus with a twist. A bright fragrance full of zest with a lust for life, like the adventurous soul not afraid to dive headlong into the less safe experiences of existence. A road less travelled kind of citrus. Simultaneously refreshing and grounding. A dual exploration, if you will. An expansive combination of both a tried and true classic with a bold take on something new. En garde!
