Au Bord de L’Eau EDC 100ml
L’Artisan’s Cologne collection pays tribute to the tradition of colognes – aromatic, fresh, crisp and clean yet with the longevity of an Eau de Toilette or in some cases an Eau de Parfum. The Cologne series fuses tradition with modernity.
Au Bord de l’Eau is inspired by the signature work of Claude Monet, this perfume uses raw olfactive materials as if they were paint pigments. Creating an echo of Monet’s artwork style, Au Bord de l’Eau is a mist of sparkling Citrus resting on an aromatic and delicate floral and woody bed. Alternating between the apparent realism with the zest of Bergamot and Lemon, Au Bord de l’Eau’s freshness is mixed with the petals of the Bitter Orange, Violet and Rosemary to create a more complex texture nestled below.
The scent of being free and fluid in nature, much like the brush strokes of the artists’ watercolours. Imagine riding a bike through the fields, little Violets are lining the narrow bicycle path. Sprouts of Rosemary are growing in abundance; there is the clean country air with the aromatics of wild herbs and flowers growing. Riding though the fields to the final destination of the rustic beach, stones lining the shore. The contours of houses along the beach are reflected in the water. Throwing down a blanket while waiting to meet friends to join you for an afternoon of champagne by the seaside.
Top: Bergamot, Lemon
Middle: Cedarwood, Violet, Orange Blossom
Base: Rosemary, Musk
HOW IT WEARS
Au Bord de l’Eau is aromatic yet not overwhelming fragrance, everything is blended so wonderfully that nothing is over powering in this scent. It is a soft, powdery, aromatic (and slightly aquatic) scent with Rosemary, Violet and Citrus as the stars. This gives a really interesting take on these key perfumery notes, it feels uplifting and gentle. We generally get a lovely close to the skin scent from Au Bord de l’Eau that lasts around 6 hours.
We love this gentle aromatic scent that takes us to that perfect place - where the countryside meets the seaside. It is a unique fusion of both landscapes, with a slight saltiness of the sea, the fresh crisp scent of a sea breeze, with the soft, earthy and aromatic tones of the most picturesque countryside village. The Violet and Rosemary work so beautifully together in this fragrance.
