The name of this creation alludes to a fresh Eau de Cologne, and that is what I get in the opening. Lemon and verbena, with a which of mint. Summery freshness.

The drydown adds a fruity touch, with whiffs of watermelon and a grassy note that raked over gradually. Later on an am ozonic undertone is evolving, with marine notions added on at time; the grass is wafting above it until the end.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and - very impressive for such a fresh composition - a longevity of nine hours on my skin.

A summer Cologne, not inducing superb excitement but with a few creative touches. Nice and crafted very well. 3.5/5.

This always foxes me - there is a smell of something which is oddly familiar but I just can't place. It starts out lemony and then there's a grassy herby feel with whatever this sweet note is - I'd like to work out what it is as it piques my curiosity. However, I'm not wild about it - it's too sweet - maybe it's coming from a hay accord - it does have a hay like tang but somehow out of context. There's a saltiness to it that I like too but that sweet and slightly headachy thing gets in the way.

When you first spray this one on, you mostly just get the lemon-lime top note, which is slightly misleading because this isn't actually a predominantly sporty-citrus scent! That said, the top note in this perfume is gorgeous! It's a bright, sparkling, lively citrus that will automatically raise your spirits and make you feel happy! I feel that it's just plain wrong to categorize this perfume as "lemon-verbena" though, as Luca Turin does in his "A-Z Guide to Perfume." The lemon top note lasts maybe ten minutes, maximum. After that, the scent transitions from a bright, sparkling citrus into a fresh, green and slightly spicy-herbal fragrance! When the lemon note first fades out, aside from just "green", it was mainly the basil note that really stood out, to my nose! But, after about twenty to twenty five minutes or so, when the scent really has a chance to develop properly, the spicy basil smell fades out too and what remains is very much like the refreshing, light scent of a cup of green tea, which is also listed as a note for this perfume! The changing nature of this perfume makes it hard to put in one fragrance category, but it's definitely a light, green and refreshing scent, to me. It isn't overly strong or heavy, and doesn't have a lot of longevity or sillage, but that actually makes it perfect as a warm weather and summer perfume, and also makes it great for normal, everyday wear. It's also another fragrance that I would definitely say is a great choice to wear if you're going out to have dinner at a restaurant, because the green smells in this one all seem like things that can be paired with food! So, it's a really great fragrance in a number of ways, the only possible draw back being that you may find you want to re-apply this one throughout the day. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about this scent, and I definitely give it five stars and a big thumbs up! :) I highly recommend trying a sample of this if you haven't yet, I think it's worth it!

Genre: Citrus

L’Artisan Parfumeur faced a common, yet challenging conundrum with this scent: how do you do a “modern” riff on the traditional eau de Cologne? Their answer, unfortunately, was to start with a soft-focus, mandarin-based version of the conventional citrus and herb blend, then spike it with a mere dash of some fruity aquatic aromachemical that smells an awful lot like Calone. This idea was probably hackneyed even in 1993, and by now it’s been cheapened beyond all redemption by shampoo and body spray associations. To pay niche perfume prices for something this commonplace seems absurd.

For an idea of what could be done with citrus and herbs in 1993, go find Eau de Rochas Homme or Bulgari’s original Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, both of which still manage to smell delightfully original.

This was a blind buy from Winners Toronto that I regret. It is an eau alright but not in a good way. At first I get a burst of citrus that is sharp and dry then it mellows and lightens up so much so that I wonder what is the point of wearing this. I douche myself with something like 6 spays just to actually get surrounded by the initial citrus brightness but after an hour it turns tangy and slightly sweet on my skin and after a couple of hours it stays so close to my skin that I barely feel it. In addition, although I always appreciate hesperides I must admit that Eau de l' Artisan has a generic feeling to it. I find no depth and originality in it and I wouldn't recommend it. I bought the 50ml bottle for 56CAD and I am sorry that I did.
