    I want a permanent cessation of the use of the word “watery” in fragrance descriptions. It invariably makes me think of such synonyms as “weak” and “insipid”. What's wrong with “dewy”, for god's sake?

    Well…bear in mind that the original source here is in German…so we would have to get someone to tell us if wässrige is more properly dewy or watery…

    I say “watery”, but Mybeautyblog, who has also reviewed these over on her German site, can tell us for definite!

    well, i'm not mybeautyblog (though i read her regularly and hope to have her over for tea sometime soon) but i'd definitely say that wässrig translates to watery.

    I think “wässrige” means “watery” as in diluted with water
    I'd never heard the word before, I looked it up on

    also, btw
    Wasser is water, and dew is like Tau

    It's not just about this one scent, however it's translated. I'm objecting to the inescapable use of the word in perfume marketing these days: in, to name only a few, the recent Joop Homme Chill Out and Calvin Klein Euphoria Blossom (both “watery fruits”), Clean Warm Cotton (“watery fresh pear”), Vera Wang Look (“watery greens”, truly disgusting, like a sodden salad), and Harajuku Lovers Love (“watery peony”).
    It doesn't sound good. It's overused. Find a new adjective, perfume pedlars!

    and then there are all the “frozen” and “icy” notes, the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Paris Hilton's with “frozen apple” but I know I've seen it several other times

    It makes me think of the frozen fruits in the frozen foods aisle of the grocery store.

    LOL — pyramus, you're right, but in a way I appreciate it because it's a clue about what I'll find when I smell it :-)

    I hope to meet her in Hamburg for tea before too long!

    I find “Watery” just to be as articulate an Adjective as “Peppery” Or “Floral”

    Have you never been on a Body of water…. (Lake, River, Ocean, Sea????) and have you never inhaled the lovely, shall we say… AQUATIC, scent of fresh water as the wind blows over it? Yes Water has it's own smell, a very evocative and magical one at that and Water being so all enveloping on this planet, I think it an Accurate and Apt Descriptive!

    Perhaps “Aquatic” or “Liquid” or “Buoyant” or “Fluid” may be better for those whom are tired of “WATERY” but i'll live with it, Personally i prefer Aquatic, but that's just me!

    Since I don't much care for aquatic accords, I prefer none of them ;-)

    *lol* funny, I haven't seen you both here, vanessa and froeken lilla!

    thanks to krokodilgena, I agree.

    dew is never a connotation with massmarket perfumes, or?
