Garden Scents

 

Diptyque, Jo Malone and l’Artisan Parfumeur offer up some bucolic promenades.

The Bloomsbury Set, a group of artists and intellectuals working in the early 20th century provide inspiration for an eponymous collection of five limited edition perfumes, three of which evoke the charms of an English garden. Artemisia, orriswood and leather, amber and cypriol… the olfactive translation of a fleeting impression of a garden is captured by ‘Leather & Artemisia’. Ylang-ylang, white musk, vanilla and waterlilies at daybreak are used for ‘Garden Lilies’, while ‘Blue Hyacinth’ is composed of garden geraniums and woody vetiver combined with the scent of blue hyacinth after the rain. Leather & Artemisia, Garden Lilies, Blue Hyacinth, Eaux de Cologne, from The Bloomsbury Set, JO MALONE.
55 euros each, 30 ml.

Conceived as a meander through a wild garden, this eau, created in 1983, is a delicious blend of sap, crushed leaves, mandarin and old roses. To celebrate its 35th birthday, it is being released as a 30ml limited edition. “L’Ombre dans L’Eau’, eau de toilette, DIPTYQUE. 50 euros.

A scent inspired by Manet’s Dejeurner sur l’herbe, this new ultra-light, floral and sunny creation, combines orange blossom and musk with amber notes and emanates a beautiful outdoor sensation. “Sur L’Herbe”, Eau de Cologne, L’ARTISAN PARFUMEUR. 110 euros, 100 ml.
