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.
Champ de Baies is a gorgeous ode to early summer morning walks, exploring nature while the countryside has retained the bluish shades of the night. At a bend in the road, a blackberry tree appears. In the middle of brambles, the fleshy fruits soaked in morning dew are enticing. The temperature is still mild, and one takes advantage of the morning’s respite in the heat of summer to take a walk through the fields. Champ de Baies magically captures the aerial footprint of a Mulberry tree in the early morning, just before a heat wave takes affect.
In this wonderful tangle of wild Blackberries and unexpected Raspberries, a refreshing sensation is encountered as if the composition were drenched in water. An impression is created by the fresh sorbet like notes of a Japanese variety Pear Nashi and an accord of Rose Rhubarb and Bergamot, which evokes a large thirst quenching glass of iced tea. At the heart, the Berries wrap around a Jasmine bush while White Musk and Amber bring soft comfort to the skin. A touch of Cedar and Patchouli in the base offers a sleek, elegant tone, never syrupy.

HOW IT WEARS
The Berry notes are most prominent in Champ de Baies, they provide an almost tart tone to ensure it doesn’t turn too sweet. The Rhubarb note also creates a lovely unique turn with the fruity notes. We love the White Musk and Cedar in the base here as it adds to the soft and clean elegance that Champ de Baies exudes on the dry down. We get pretty good longevity with this fragrance, generally around 6 hours, sometimes longer and especially when it hits clothing.
We love the elegance of this crisp and zesty berry based fragrance. Without going into sweet territory, Champ de Baies is still fruity – uplifting and refreshing, just like an ice-cold drink on a hot day. We love the imagery that this scent evokes, as we all know that moment as the sun is rising in the middle of summer and you spend some time in nature just before the heat really hits for the day. The clear summer scent as the sun continues to rise and the day continues to heat up.
