L'eau Froide Eau de Parfum

SKU: 22662

L’'eau froide is true to its function: icy on application, this Eau keeps its cool. 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.
 

Notes:
Frankincense, cedarwood, & musk.

After the initial shock of cold, which awakens the skin, L’Eau 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.

Serge Lutens, the man behind the brand, is considered an artistic legend with creative endeavours that include photography, filmmaking, perfume art-direction and fashion. Serge Lutens draws inspiration from many sources, from his beloved Marrakesh, where he lives part of the year, to literary and visual descriptions of fragrances that move him.

His exclusive boutique Les Salons du Palais Royal, in Paris is considered by many to be the most beautiful perfumery in the world.

"A unique place in the world where one would come as an enlightened being to define oneself through one's perfume, in order to stand out from the identity-free crowd which previous times had imposed upon us." - Serge Lutens
