L'Artisan Parfumeur Sur L'Herbe Eau de Cologne & Au Bord de L'Eau Eau de Cologne
Perfume Launch of 2017
L'Artisan Parfumeur is introducing a set of two new eaux de cologne this month called Au Bord de l'Eau and Sur L'Herbe, named after two paintings by Impressionist painters Claude Monet and Edouard Manet, respectively...
The brand has labeled the two works as hybrid entities described as "pictorial colognes." Perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin signs both olfactory compositions.
Together with the pictorial inspiration, one can note that the house is keen on proposing a genre of scent they seldom sell, the eau de cologne, revisiting it however to create a complex version of what is usually expected.
Indeed, the notes are more free-style, while there are even suggestions of kinetic impressions. The latter aspect is known but seldom exploited in perfumery. 3D invisible architectures however sometimes appear in perfumes like Insolence by Guerlain, for instance.
Au Bord de L'Eau features notes of bergamot peel and lemon zest, bigaradier petals, rosemary, violet and downy musks.
Sur L'Herbe showcases neroli, a solar, luminous accord, white musks, amber, and an "overdose of oxygen."
