That being said, if you’re one of the (apparently) few unfamiliar with the fragrance, here are a few things you should know. First, as Weiss mentioned in her post, the scent was meant to essentially enhance the intrinsic scent of, you guessed it, you. The brand explains on its website that it’s “humanly” in inspiration and that each carefully selected note in the fragrance is designed for long-wear durability to maintain the initial whiff’s integrity. You know when a fragrance sharply changes paths even just minutes post-spritz? Yeah, not the case with You. The trick? It relies heavily on substantial base notes consisting of ambrette (described by the brand as “comfy” and “warm”), ambrox (“smooth, salty, animalistic”), and musk (“long-lasting” and “addictive”).
Then, featherweight top notes like earthy iris root and piquant pink pepper add a touch more intricacy. Strategic, to say the least.
