Mercury [80Hg] Fragrance Reviews

Buysblind

This is disgusting juice that smells like some terrible kind of fatal car accident on a hot humid highway with sweaty patrol officers and overweight EMT's left to clean up the mess. Metallic blood and B.O. that's hardly concealed by the obnoxious air fresheners dangling from the mangled rearview mirror or the cheap dimestore deodorants worn by sloppy onlookers. Absolutely terrible. Stay away unless you're of the "trainwreck" variety and just can't manage to steer your eyes from a good disaster when it crosses your path. Thumbs down.

Mercury is for me, the perfect summer antidote. It's a cool, clean, bracing number, but is also so extremely weird that it gives me my avant garde fix at the same time, in a scent that revels in the warm weather.
It opens with the biggest smash in the face aldehyde/citrus combo you can imagine, but it's so metallic that I can only think of one or two others in the ball park (Blood Concepts - AB & ELDO Secretions Magnifique - also by Antoine Lie). That is backed up by a flower bed apparently planted by a new age cyborg in metal shavings, from which have bloomed geranium and violet, but in name only. To look at them correctly, you need some serious virtual reality goggles. Add to all that a base of electronic cedar and a vivid hologram of a sandalwood tree and you have one bizarre experience.
Lie has nailed the idea of presenting an amorphous, shimmering metal like mercury in a scent here. I must stress that I also find it totally wearable nonetheless and it's performance is unquestionable. I put it on this morning at 10am and I've been getting whiffs of it all day (it's almost 5pm now).
Trust me, if you're a perfume purist, you might like to keep on walking. If you like things that push the boundaries of perfumery however, look no further!

Mercury opens with a pungent, sour, metallic-citrus-rusty/animalic accord, with a massive dose of aldehydes, quite close to many supermarkets "sport" deodorants but somehow "beyond" that. The aldehydes are really powerful and concentrated, becoming almost a disturbing "rancid" metal note (if that concept existed), a post-industrial bad smell that suddenly reminded me of Secretions Magnifiques, to which Mercury resembles quite closely. Halfway that, a sweaty pit on which it has been applied some cheap deodorant hours before. If being a "provocative perfumer" is just putting cheap random-assembled Takasago stink in a bottle, as pointlessly random as launching a car with square wheels and no brakes, then I'm a boring traditionalist. As for many other nu_be scents: I don't get this – and I mean I don't get the point of this (and even worse, unlike others which at least smell decent, this also smells bad).

I think everyone knows that smell, which comes after you've had a terrible flu, that metallic smell of inflamed sinuses. That is exactly what this fragrance smells like! I can recommend this only for persons who like having a flu. Otherwise... steer clear!

this one smells like dirty water, or let's say like the smell of a metal spoon that someone just woke up without brushing his teeth or wash his mouth and ate some food using it, and now the spoon dried down so you can smell his saliva on that metal spoon. and maybe the breath of someone with an empty stomach since the morning.

This is my least favourite offering from this brand. Very synthetic citrus, reminds me of the axe body spray i wore when i was younger.

230) Sueur Magnifique
métallique,marin,aromatique. Très facile à porter je lui trouve pourtant un air de famille avec Sécrétion Magnifique de ELO. En fait ça aurait pu être un grand succès en parfumerie mainstream, un parfum semblable a Invictus si ce dernier avait été créé avec moins de recherche de profit et plus de goût et d'intelligence.
Il évoque le monde de la propreté, du métal, du sport(masculin) tout en étant suffisamment ambivalent pour accompagner un costume.

It is metal, marine, aromatic. Very easy to wear yet I found it a family resemblance to Sécrétion Magnifique by ELO. In fact it could have been a great success in mainstream perfumery, something similar to Invictus if it had been created with less profit research and more taste and intelligence.
It evokes the world of cleanliness, metal-sport (male) while being ambivalent enough to accompany a costume.

Delivered by the same guy who gave birth to Secretion Magnifique and several other odd-balls, all I can say during my first testing of Mercury is...

WTH???

This is weird. I don't know yet if good-weird or bad-weird but definitely weird. It is like some of the oddest Comme Des Garçons having a gangbang with a bunch of Humiecki & Graef while Sec Mag is video-taping the whole scene. There's a remarkable *cold metal* vibe going on together with the most sparkling aldehydes/citrus combo in perfume history. A mandarin hologram enhances the overall fresh vibe and brings it to unseen levels while aldehydes provide a transparency that goes beyond olfaction to cross the border of other senses such as sight. In this context I would say Mercury feels almost dazzling. I've to say though, that while definitely feeling clean and cold, the fragrance never fall into aseptic / disinfectant / hospital territories. Au contraire, it feels incredibly alive and pulsating. I believe in this context, Antoine Lie perfectly achieved to translate
into a fragrance the true essence of such an enigmatic and fascinating metal such as Mercury.

The fragrance morphes then into a smooth woody-creamy-sandalwood with greenish-metallic facets.

Chromatic scale: Lime Green, Fluo Yellow, Tangerine, Fluo Orange, Fluo Green, Silver, White, Fluo Green.

I'm not sure what to do with this yet, honestly, but there's one thing I can say with quite some confidence: Mercury and Sulphur are by all means two polar opposites.

Here are a few more considerations:

- It's funny.
- It's weird.
- It surely pushes the boundaries of perfumery.
- It will make perfume purists recoil in horror.

Rating: 7.5/10 (because it's so daring).
