Sur L’Herbe 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.
Sur l’Herbe is inspired by Edouard Manet’s artwork Le Déjeuner Sur l’Herbe. At the time, this painting provoked a real scandal when seen by art critics in Paris in 1863. Despite Manet’s claims to classical art references, this scene, representing two fully dressed men with a naked woman picnicking in a forest, was considered as obscene by his contemporaries. It’s this raw modernity that carried the perfumer, Fabrice Pellegrin throughout the creation of Sur l’Herbe’s formula. It prompted him to reinvent Neroli or rather, the distillation of the Orange Blossom petal plant, by injecting a saturation of light. He has placed at the heart of the Sur l’Herbe, a Solar Accord, to which he added White Musk and Amber, with an overdose of Oxygen, blurring all preconceptions. Creating an incredibly powerful airy and bright fragrance to recreate the essence of the painting via our olfactive sense.
Top: Lemon, Bergamot
Middle: Green Notes, Ozonic Notes, Neroli
Base: Orange Blossom, Musk, Amberwood
HOW IT WEARS
The Neroli and Orange Blossom are the prominent notes on the skin in Sur l’Herbe, however the Bergamot and Green Notes come through creating a crisp and refreshing balance. This is perfect for lovers of bright Citrus fragrances. Whilst categorised as cologne, we get the wear of an Eau de Toilette at the very least, generally around 5 to 6 hours on the skin, longer on clothing.
We love how bright and airy this fragrance is, it makes us think of late afternoon strolls through a beautiful garden, the crisp scent of green grass with the Orange Blossom and Neroli wafting through the warm air. This is a wonderful Citrus fragrance that feels rounded and perfectly balanced.
