L'Eau Froide Eau de Parfum
The spectral quality of its intangible aura serves to magnify this impression. The sensation of cold fulfills the promise of the name L'eau froide, lingering on a breath of air.
Why we're addicted: L'eau froide is true to its function: icy on application, this Eau keeps its cool.
Frankincense, Cedarwood, & Musk.
After the initial shock of cold, which awakens the skin, LEau froide proceeds to combine with the air and wrap around the wearer, like a flowing robe that protects the body from impurity.
This is a little-known fact. People remember the pyrogenic aspect of censers giving off swirls of smoke. But the only sensation of cold associated with frankincense is the coolness of the inner recesses of an old church.
Of all the raw materials available, only the frankincense from Somalia and no other provenance yields this impression of cold.
Harvested from the Boswellia sacra, a tree that grows mainly in pre-desert areas, frankincense comes from a sap that, when it dries, looks like small pebbles of sanded glass. These tears of glass exude naturally from an incision in the tree trunk.
This resin is necessary to the survival of the species, considering that rain falls locally only once or twice a year. It keeps the Boswellia sacra tree a plant that seems almost mineral alive, in spite of the relentless rays of the sun. It is singular yet logical that this sap is used to make a fragrance determined to keep its icy cool.
