Il Marinaio da Capri (The Sailor from Capri)

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


The first in our series: Flowers for Men.  Il Marinaio da Capri is an interesting mash up of styles resulting in a crisp, green, honeysuckle chypre with subtle aquatic nuances (salty sea air without the calone / musk combo so often used for marine scents).

It’s fresh and utterly wearable for both men and women. (It’s kind of addicting, too).


About This Product

While essentially a unisex / universal perfume, this design embraces ‘Caprifoglio’ (Honeysuckle) as the dominant heart note while using it in a fragrance structure that is commonly used for men’s fragrance designs: the classic eau de cologne, and the fresh aquatic.

The “Sailor” is a fantasy… an archetype of sorts.  He is bathed in the essences of the Island: the salty scent of sun warmed skin and sea air, the mineral scents of the earth, greenery, and of course, the flowers.  He embodies a balance of masculine and feminine; of the earth, water, and sky.

    It’s winter as I write, & I’ve been daydreaming about summer & the sea. Il Marinaio da Capri, sends me there with it’s just cut green stems & honeysuckle blowing in a sunlit ocean breeze. I can imagine this would be wonderful in the summer too. This isn’t the typical too sweet honeysuckle fragrance, It’s cool salty air with just the right touch of floral that dries down to a pearly chypre. How can something this airy still be so satisfyingly substantial? Gorgeous, – highly recommend for male or female.

    Il Marinaio di Capri embodies the more commercial side of Dawn, not necessarily one of my favorites to be honest but one that certainly puts her skills in more direct and less challenging olfactory forms if you’re not prepared for her more classic ones. The goal here is to start a series of male florals and impersonate a honeysuckle chypre with subtle aquatic nuances. Although the idea does not have the calone to give a typical aquatic air, the aquatic aura ends robbing the scene of the honeysuckle a little and takes the perfume more in a musky watery/ozonic direction than floral chypre aquatic. What I find interesting, however, is the green scent that smells like cut grass right in the beginning, a contrast between an idealization of the sea and the green scent of the earth. Personally I could put more emphasis on the chypre and floral aspect, however considering that this is a floral for the male audience I think the restrained aspect is purposeful in the design.
