Batucada Edt 100ml
Batucada is a celebration of the spirit of Brazil. It captures the rhythm of the drumming beat of Mardi Gras, the flavour of the Caipirinha cocktail and the scent of the ocean drifting through from the warm breeze. This vibrant and joyful scent tells the story of The Carnival with its bronzed samba dancers as well as the quiet beauty of Ipanema beach at sundown. A burst of Lime, Cachaça and fresh Mint combined with a dab of Sun Cream and Sea Salt recreates the scent of the perfect holiday. Brazil. A sun drenched get away of living life to the fullest, the effervescent sense of life and party that Carnival brings to town. Colour, bronzed skin, swaying hips, the festive music and cocktails overflowing. The flavours of the Caipirinha – Mint, Lime and Cachaça. This is the scent of tropical parties. Batucada is a fusion of two perfumers Karine Vinchon and Elizabeth Maier – one based in Grasse, France and the other Sao Paolo, Brazil so this fragrance represents the fusion of two cultures. The French art of fine fragrance and the Brazilian joie de vivre – the ingredients, the name and the concept behind Batucada, this fusion creates a uniquely tropical fragrance for L’Artisan Parfumeur.

HOW IT WEARS
This is not as sweet as you would expect for a tropical Aquatic scent, which is something that we really love about Batucada. The freshness of the Mint and Lime definitely come through as well as the Sea Salt note. There is a soft creaminess as it settles on the skin as Coconut, Tiare Flower and Ylang Ylang start to come out. We generally get around 6 to 8 hours on the skin with Batucada.
We love this take on a tropical beachy scent as Batucada does it differently to most. The addition of Mint and Lime creates a gorgeous unique freshness to the Coconut and creamy warmth in the fragrance. We also love the beachy Sea Salt vibes that balance this perfect summer scent beautifully. Like the scent of skin after a day at the beach, you can smell the Sea Salt, the Coconut and the hint of floral that comes through.
