When the Neuve was so much better than the new
Vintage Eau Neuve is actually not a cologne at all but tangy citrus Eau de Toilette with herbs.

Departing on a good clean lemon with choppy herbaceous note and sweet undertone, the citrus is not too pithy and has well sustained attack. The woody brown base then turns it into a lovely demerara chypre.

Impeccable materials, beautiful harmonies (and no white musk): simply excellent.

The perfect bright & balanced fragrance...
L'Eau Neuve by Lubin is a fragrance that I always come to love more and more. It is fresh, vibrant, happy and also a little clever.

It opens up with a bright citrus combination of lemon, orange and bergamot, followed by a hint of lavender. It's very zesty and fresh, like the opening of a classic eau de cologne (for example a Guerlain Eau de Cologne). But what really sets this one apart is the very interesting use of herbs in the mid. Thyme, sage, marjoram & coriander... this combined with the bright, zesty top notes is what makes it so intriguing. I love the combination and it does keep you interested in the fragrance and makes it last longer. Finally the base has a light patchouli, cedar wood, sandalwood & oak moss.

So this fragrance was inspired by the 1960's feeling of optimism and hope. It does strike me as a very optimistic and bright fragrance. There is a camomile note which reminds me of camomile herbal tea, with a hint of very fresh lemon. It's very relaxing and the entire fragrance gives you such a good feeling. To me this fragrance epitomises the bright colours of yellow, blue, green and orange. There is nothing heavy or "dark" here. It's like walking in the park in spring... or camping in the outdoors, amongst nature. This is a fantastic fragrance for spring. If you like fragrances like Dior Eau Sauvage or the classic feel of a sparkling traditional herbs & citrus Eau de Cologne, then I think you will really love this. Modern, fresh and unisex. This is an underrated bright, fresh classic!
