MAC Turquatic (Rollerball)

MAC Turquatic (Rollerball) ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is housed in a slim, glass tube with a gradient of yellowed chartreuse to greenish-teal. The fragrance is inspired by the sea with a “crisp and energizing” feel. The notes, as included in the press release, are: mineral water, anemone, lotus, orris, and Corsican blue cedar.

It’s a fresh scent with a musky floral vibe–it dries down on me and smells heavier than one expect for a “crisp” fragrance. The sillage is low, which means the scent kisses the skin but doesn’t waft, so it ends up being a subtler scent that you can smell but others will barely notice. There is a light, watery element that keeps it from becoming too heady, sexy, or otherwise categorized as more of a musky scent, but there’s still an inkling of something darker lying beneath the surface. For me, the lotus and blue cedar dominate, but they work well together. If you have Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue, this might smell familiar.

Turquatic’s scent doesn’t turn on me as it wears, but it only lasts a few hours (three to four) before being nearly indetectable on the skin. For a scent that already wears as close to the skin as it does, having to reapply it two or three times a day is not particularly palatable. Rollerballs are all about convenience–and you’ll pay for it–but contain little product inside. MAC has priced Turquatic where many other brands have priced theirs.

It will launch on August 11th and become part of the permanent range.  It is also available in 20ml ($27.50) and 50ml ($49.50) bottles–I will have photos of the latter up soon.
