Eau sweet water


 trendy beautee mai


Water has no scent. Luckily, perfumers set their imaginations to work so that ours can float free! After the maritime trend, the journey continues with a winding stream flowing through a summer garden.


Eau Hyper Fraîche
For nature lovers
The name says it all. From the first whiff, the new Courrèges opus suggests an invigorating freshness and a sense of freedom. A bright explosion of citrus notes (bergamot, mandarin, lemon) with an incredible minty jasmine heart, ending with notes of cedarwood, moss and patchouli. An ode to optimism.


Au Bord de l’Eau
Olfactory Impressionism
In Artisan Parfumeur’s very first collection of Colognes, Au Bord de l’Eau pays tribute to the great Claude Monet and his painting of that title. Fabrice Pellegrin’s olfactory palette includes a citrusy haze of bergamot, bitter orange and lemon along with rosemary, violet and downy musks. Exquisite!


L’Eau d’Issey Pure
Nature awakens.
In 1992, Issey Miyake’s l’Eau d’Issey, a minimalist fragrance with a marine twist, launched a wave of fresh-scented eaux de parfum. A generation later, there are petals floating on its surface. L’Eau d’Issey Pure is lightened by notes of mandarin, neroli, rose and lily of the valley. Between the sea and the morning dew, nature awakens!
