L'Eau du Tailleurs by Maitre Tailleurs
L'Eau opens with mild aldehydes and citrus,coupled with rhubarb and fig. The fruit notes combined with orange leaf give off a softened ,violet-like accord making the packaging totally appropriate.
The scent is fresh, yet substantial. Artemesia, Cedar and Cypress give this some gravity and body, but do not overtake the aura. The wood lurks beneath and is content to co-exist. The heart is a spicy, but low key floral with Jasmin, Iris and Rose, however I do not get the listed patchouli. The fragrance has enough gravitas and earth tone without a dominant patch note.
L'Eau du Tailleurs is hard to put your finger on. It's fresh, yet serious. There's nothing carefree about it, but it's not sobering either. Bottom line is that it's a well constructed shared fragrance with quality written all over it. If you are feeling ambivalent and still want to smell great, this is the perfect scent.
