L Artisan Parfumeur L’Eau de L’Artisan

28 Feb

The verbena/herbal elements in L’Eau de L’Artisan remind me of visiting an empty band shell in Central Park when everything is shrouded in mist. I don’t get the uplifting feeling from it that so many seem to experience. However, that doesn’t mean I dislike it.

L’Eau de L’Artisan smells like lemon basil melancholy. The opening is quite bright and fresh, but the basil hangs down in the background creating a kind of musty shade that doesn’t really compliment the herbal citrus bouquet.

I noted a similar composition in Eau d’Orange Verte by Hermes, only the mega blast of sour orange in Hermes’s top notes wins me over, while L’Eau de L’Artisan remains comparatively dull in the Spring green-yellow-pale green Crayola spectrum. It projects decently, and its longevity is average for a light citrus aromatic fragrance.

L’Eau de L’Artisan reminds me of Summer-specific ennui. It’s sitting on a wire chair under the green striped awning on my grandma’s brick and cement porch in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, staring at the empty school yard across the street, and trying to figure out what to do with myself.

Ride a bike? Nah… Watch T.V.? Nah… Keep looking at ants following their invisible pheromone trail across the bricks? Why not.
