Six Scents' third collection of fragrances is ‘an exploration into the nature of childhood memories and the influence of adolescence on identity.’ Six Scents Series Three is a line of 6 fragrances, composed by 6 designers working with 6 perfumers from Givaudan. Each fragrance comes with a portrait of the designer who inspired it, plus a DVD.
N°4 “Ascent” by Rad Hourani and Christophe Raynaud, states on the packaging "Ascent replicates the journey of life to death though notes that punctuate each stage of life".
Well, for the life of me, I could not detect these stages at all!
Top notes should stand for childhood... all I can smell is a synthetic pear note (that I do not particularly asssociate with childhood) and a powdery musky note that is lovely and maybe the creator associates with their infancy, but not really me.
Then you should have adolescent age... so wild, not so clean and rebel smelling were supposed to appear. Nothing similar got through my nostrils. Still clean stuff.
Adult age? I get some powdery rose - stil very ladylike - and a woody (cedar?) base.
And then? Death? what is death supposed to smell like?
No, this frag is a clean smelling thing, can be pleasant of course, but I am disturbed and distracted by the claims this perfume should be and to me this unfair, as it created expectations the frag is not keeping.
All in all - putting aside expectations - it's a clean frag the is very wearable. It smells like clean, freshly ironed linen. Not original at all - ther are plenty of similar smelling frags and surely not worth the high price tag. And - despite the unisex claim - this is a feminine frag.

A harmony of pear, violet leaf, ylang-ylang, rose, cedar, a leather accord, frankincense, powdery musks, tonka bean and benzoin.

Love it. Smells like something CDG would come up with...a bit of ozone a wisp of smoke and a lot of freshness with woods. If you care for Escentric Molecule and Molecule 01 and Odeur 53 and such...you will probably fall for this one.
