American fashion designer John Varvatos is issuing a limited-edition fragrance in his Artisan range (2009) called Artisan Blu, which is inspired by the element water - and the sun light and warmth playing on the Mediterranean sea...
"Plunging deep into an azure sea, John Varvatos Artisan Blu is the ultimate embodiment of crystal blue waters under the warmth of the sun. This citrus aromatic fragrance exhales an elegant and refreshing personality, evoking a color-saturated, vibrant seaside lost in the Mediterranean summer."
In this preview of summer, you can find top notes of bergamot, French lavender, chayote, basil and bitter orange seguing into a heart of Egyptian geranium, palmarosa, Florentine iris, orange blossom absolute, and French clary sage while the base rests on patchouli, cedarwood, parasol pine, tamarisk and pistachio tree resin.
It's a burst of Mediterranean olfactory sensations - can you hear the Cicadas singing?
