A stroll through an English garden continues into the rose garden. On a bed of moss, the voluptuous, sensual Damask rose spreads its petals, perched atop svelte stems.
This incarnation of L’Ombre dans L’eau (eau de parfum) still focuses on the classic pairing of rose and blackcurrant, but does so with less aquatic dilution. The pure, green thrill of the opening earmarks this scent as irresistibly luminous, and the source of all this fresh ripeness is indisputably rose.
Full of boundless vivacity, this bloom is initially bittersweet and fruity, but nestled amidst moss, Damask rose quickly matures into a more piquant, shimmering version of itself. As rose unfolds, its petals widening in a languid yawn, the full, voluptuous extent of this flower is revealed and we feel as if we were a tiny mite or fairy, ineffectively trying to scale the dewy, velveteen cup of a satin smooth petal.
A magical sensuality is the burgeoning sensibility of this scent, and the quirky, delectable complexity of blackcurrant leaf confirms this direction. Imparting a jammy-herbal vibe that recalls the dark, oozing intensity of blackcurrant berries with an additional taut, refreshing verdancy, blackcurrant leaf supplies a sap-like freshness that graciously enlivens the Titania-esque form of Damask rose.
Lyrical, yet defined by prose-like precision, this scent reads as pure inspiration on skin. L’Ombre Dans L’eau is romance, refreshed.
