HOW IT WEARS
We get a lot of Gin, Juniper and Citrus from L’Humaniste. Grounded in earthy tones, L’Humaniste settles to a clean crisp and aromatic scent on the skin. Almost like the scent of freshly cleaned clothes (if you’ve got them drying next to a Juniper bush). Aromatic is the best way to describe this scent. The longevity from this Eau de Parfum is 6 – 8 hours, for such a crisp and fresh scent, we get great wear, generally around 8 hours.
Always refreshing, much like the fizz of the tonic water as it cools your throat and the aromatic notes of the gin as it fills the senses on a hot summer day. Imagine just having slipped into freshly cleaned white linen, your skin is clean from just having had a shower and there is an ice cold gin and tonic waiting for you on the kitchen bench, heaven.
