Peñha Ligón's freshly baked meadows in the morning fog
I meet Peñha Ligòn, a quirky old Spaniard, in his cottage with large garden in southeast England. "He grins and leads me through his picturesque orangery with one hand on my upper arm. He casually picks a few mandarins and tangerines from the trees and bushes, while he talks about the British and laughs heartily in between. Before he takes me to his garden, he throws the citrus fruits into a large basket of soaps. "The English may smell it for soap in summer, it's like freshly washed." He says and laughs again when he notices the amazement in my facial expressions.
Then we step outside into the open. The fog still lies over the lush meadows and the cold of last night can be felt directly on the clothes. For a moment Ligòn pauses: "You see, that's why I came mad! The English call these Temperraturr Crisp." Again he laughs. "Is always thinking about cornflakes." He takes a step out into the meadow and you can hear the grass, slightly frozen by the dew, crunching under his shoes. "That's what you find in España. Crispy fris!" Then he cuts off a few hands full of it and throws the whole thing into his basket, before pulling out some more grass with soil and moss at another place and stuffing it with it. On the way back, he plucks a pair of lavender and bitter orange blossoms from the meadow and places them on the greenery. "Flowers are always good," he says and takes a few tufts of lemon grass from his front garden with him on the way to the kitchen. A crackling sound can be heard here as well, as he grabs the tufts. In his kitchen he finally dumps the basket contents including citrus fruits (with soap crumbs), a few spices and barks into a big old press and starts turning on an oversized wooden vice. The green-yellowish syrup is already flowing into a bowl. He dips a small test tube into it, closes it with a sprayer and puts it in my trouser pocket. "Sprinkle it on you in Verano, ahem, summer," he says before he says goodbye smiling with a friendly "Bayolea!".
When I test it on a very warm spring day, I understand why he moved to England. The soapy, fresh, citric top note looks like a short refreshment, not pungent, rather like a fresh shower. Soon the lemongrass is dominant, which leads the fragrance after 15 to 30 minutes over into the green, where the spicy floral notes are added and for some time this unique impression of frozen, dew-fresh meadows is conveyed. It is rough, but never prickly, which can certainly be attributed to cedar and moss. Unfortunately this wonderful impression lasts only about four to at most five hours, before the Bayolea says goodbye with a rather fleeting echo of light musk and some ambergris Despite its short shelf life, it becomes my summer scent, the crispy green fresh morning air.

Loved it, then hated it! Just that fast.
Bayolea starts out very interesting, very dry and masculine, I thought I found a new favorite! But within minutes, it actually starts to stink. Nasty.

Superduper green scent. It's like sitting in a bowl of newly shaved lemongrass. Not my thing, but if that thought appeals to you go for it.+1
