L Artisan Parfumeur The Pour Un Ete

23 Feb

This is what I wish The Vert from L’Occitane smelled like. It has a very similar lemon green tea opening, but the green tea note in The Vert contains a bitter, over-steeped quality and the lemon only muddles The Vert’s bitter, slightly dirty combination of notes.

In The Pour Un Ete, the lemon is alone in the opening, natural, pure, and sour, though it quickly makes room for a smooth green tea with just the slightest hint of natural sweetness. This tea-lemon combination is perfectly balanced and soft.  As it opens on the skin, the composition becomes  light green and dry. Those who are fond of this combination of notes will be in heaven.

I do detect a light jasmine and the faintest cedar behind the tea and citrus, but they are soft and do little more than round out the other notes,  emerging slightly more in the dry down. The dry down continues to be a smooth and slightly sweet tea note, turning into more of a jasmine green tea than a lemon one.

The projection is average, and longevity is typical for L’Artisan, which means longer than 10 minutes, but way less than 10 hours.  Very refreshing for Spring and hot, humid weather.

The Pour Un Ete is having lunch with iced tea and fresh lemons in a campground with your family.There are conifer trees surrounding you and it is near the ocean so there are no mosquitoes. It is smooth, green, sweet, satisfying, and complete.
