Well, maybe the title is more wishful thinking than anything else, but come on – don´t you want it too? So, let us pretend a little: Do you feel the soft breeze, hear the birds singing, see the blue sky with nary a cloud and most importantly of all – can you smell the grass, freshly cut on your lawn?
No problem! If you can´t imagine the smell of spring, there is a solution at hand:
Sisley´s Eau de Campagne, another entry in this green week of spring previews.
It is green – very much so – it is refreshing, it is uplifting, it is by JCE, it is not terribly expensive and easy to find. It even has great body products to go with it (shower gel, body oil, body lotion, soap – all highly recommended). The one tiny minus is the lasting power, but that is to be expected with an Eau de Toilette of this genre. I would wish for a little more tenacity though, as even layering with all the body products doesn´t do much good to keep it for more than two hours (and I am probably erring on the side of the fragrance here).
The scent opens with a burst of sparkling lemon, followed by tomato leaf, freshly cut green grass and basil. It is so crisp you could almost take a bite and hear the crunching. Yet is is still very elegant and refined, worthy of the crest that graces the bottle.
This is and always will be a favorite for hot summer days, but also in winter it provides a much needed breath of freshness and joy, almost hilarity, to frozen perfumistas everywhere who are sick of the greyness of the season.
