Certes, initially I succumbed to this fragrance because of the fantastically consistent art deco flacon, but in view of the early summer that has long since set in here on the French border, I also know how to convince me of its inner qualities.
The fragrance is quite quickly outlined: imagine a chilled glass of water with lemon slice and mint leaf, which is enjoyed next to a lavender bush.
This also completely sugar-free and without ever touching the shrill cocktail-ish with its French lightness and brand-typical naturalness.
If some support is needed to come out of the hammock after the sieste again this freshman would certainly be a suitable means of choice. And sometimes there are these moments, non?
As a so-called cologne fraîche, he is of course not just a paragon of sillage and durability - but this is offset with a correspondingly generous container size.
Bref, an eau for the lighter side of life, which knows how to ease the hot days a little, quite carefree and simple - and so simple this child is then also called by name: captivant.

Cicadas time
Eau Captivante is the one cologne of this line of Eaux that even if I dont care very much for citrusy fraganes, made it to my collection; probably because its refreshing effect relies not only on citrus but on typical mediterranean aromatic plants, in a way that it stays refreshing when the volatile citric oils have already vanished.

It starts bright and sunny as one could expect from green lemon. The notes of mint are, to my nose, more noticeable at this first stages, mingled with the lemon. Not dark cool, as in menthol, but sweet cool as in spearmint. It also feels cool on the skin, which is very lovely, if u splash enough cologne as one should do in this hot weather! (i didnt dare to substitute the cap with the sprayer that comes with the beautiful flask, note the beautiful Arts´& Crafts typography and the big retro beveled bottle)

Eau Captivante gets more and more pungent as the citrus notes fade, but it stays lemony. Verbena or citronella type of lemony. The base is woody, dry and pungent, again, with a sweet touch that reminds to fig tree wood. Cold, balsamic notes of sweet basil support the mint and the lavender, very woody and subtle here but the three plants provide a shadowy effect, like finding a little grove close to the water as u stroll under the blinding midday sun, when only insects dare to wander around.

Definitely i am going to wear Eau Captivante a lot this summer, on the hottest days.
