Reverie au Jardin, a new fragrance created by the Swiss perfumer, Andy Tauer, is an ode to lavender— but don't expect a simple, straightforward lavender! This is lavender like you have never encountered it before. Although retaining its herbaceous, spicy, green quality, the note here has incredible warmth, enveloping softness and alluring depth. The scent is like a richly ornamented, dark-green velvet cloak that envelops the wearer in its sensual embrace— like a pitch-black night in a garden of earthy delights, under a sky jeweled with dazzling stars. It would be impossible to describe in detail the numerous stages, the unexpected little nuances, the delightful twists and turns of its composition. When we say that the fragrance starts green and bracing, moves on to acquiring a fantastically rich incense accord, that the deep, spicy, flowery orris adorns the sultry heart of the scent, and that the base notes, with their earthy, sweet blend of vetiver, tonka, oakmoss, vanilla, ambergris and woods are sumptuous and warm…we are just scratching the surface of the scent's development. Perhaps we did it an injustice by calling Reverie au Jardin a lavender scent, because really it is much more than that…we love how strong the elegant incense note is in the composition, bringing to it a soulful, meditative quality, and vanilla and tonka bean perform magnificently in the blend, softening what could have been too sharp, adding warmth and sweetness and caressing depth. A masterpiece.
