Early bird
If they asked me a time frame for Eau de Courrèges it wouldn´t be a season but a time of the day. It is a very nice morning fragance. Not that it is strikingly unique, and maybe that is the reason i associate it with the time of the day when the least exciting things occur in our lives. But lets not look down to those quotidian activities, since they are the base for the rest of the day´s challenges and rewards, and also can bring so much joy in their simplicity. Well begun is half done.
Charmingly green, this cologne has a bright opening that soon gives way to a leafy, tender, almost aqueous, heart. The blast of citrus ,where lime stands out, amplified with minty notes is quite misleading about the direction Eau de Courrèges take. Mint is the transitional element from the sunny zest to the dewy lawn. Grassy sparks recall the lovely Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca, but weaker and calmer in mood. Lily of the valley steps out (projecting a pale, bluish shadow of hyacinth, that is only a mere ghost) smelling beautifully dilluted in chilly mint with the herbal facet of absinth. I would say this fresh powderiness that comes out of the juxtaposition of muget and soft herbs is the true soul of Eau de Courrèges.
Longevity is not its most remarkable feature, which is something i love in cologne because i well might want to switch to something more intense for the second half of the day! Basenotes keep greenness but loose the floral character, taking a definitely dryer, woodier shape. Have a great day!

That mint is outstanding. For all of the 5 min the scent lasts, it is THE quintessential cologne.
