SYNOPSIS: Claude LeCoq published his first book, The Soft Lawn, in 1916 while still attending Princeton University. A controversial portrait of adolescent upper-class rebellion in New England, the coming-of-age story follows Hampton Perry, a charmingly snotty college tennis champ who, after years of having everything handed to him on a silver platter, finds himself handing it all back.

A little-known fact about the author: Claude LeCoq wore only seersucker suits, known in that era as the wardrobe of the poor, and it was his gallant presence at high society dinners and prestigious sporting events that brought the fabric into popularity among the affluent in the ’20s.

Linden Blossom
Laurel & Ivy leaves
Fresh Tennis Balls

The Soft Lawn opens with bright grapefruit and and sweeter (yet still a little zesty) linden blossom, which paves the way for the greener notes to come – kind of like dewy grass first thing in the morning. As the fragrance develops, the laurel and ivy leaves add a green depth to the scent, grounded by vetiver and oakmoss. The tennis ball accord in this fragrance is super realistic as well! Gentle, green and airy, The Soft Lawn will last on the skin for 4-6 hours.

The Soft Lawn is 1920s high-class athleisure in fragrance form. We imagine a sprawling green Hamptons estate where teenagers play endless games of tennis to stave off boarding-school vacation boredom. A great leisure scent, wear The Soft Lawn on weekends or anytime you wish it were the weekend.
