Fresh, clean scent but unfortunately does not last.

Incredibly pretty! Balancing fresh clean sheets and warm round honeyed florals so beautifully. I adore the mix of white musk and sweet hay scents wafting in the breeze. Like a wildflower covered grassy yard--bees buzzing about the orange blossoms and lavender scented laundry drying on the line. Perfection!

Another agreeable floral from this company. This definitely smells of lavender and something else...there’s an herbal base to this, clean to balance the headiness of the flowers. The description says hay and linden and orange blossom and I smell that. I doubt it will last long, but a nice one if you want a dab of something pleasant, not overwhelming, and intimate. A younger scent. On retry: a little too sweet for my taste, verging on headache inducing. I do appreciate that it doesn’t change scent to something disagreeable, and stays “true”.

This would be an angelic summer scent. The scent matches the description perfectly. I got a lot of mint initially, in fact I got a cooling sensation on my wrists which is odd...but the orange blossom, some hay with musk comes through after the refrefreshing mint scent...the scent itself is very pretty!

This is as close to perfect as you can get for me. Fresh, clean, unique! Very feminine without being cloying in the least. I think I could wear this every day.

Sweet, fresh orange blossom, with just a hint of musk. A sweet white floral, young, bright not too complex, lovely for a summer evening.

I loved the opening, with the orange and slight note of mint and the "clean laundry" scent. But it quickly becomes very sweet and takes on an odd, rounded, annoying note that I find in a couple of other Olivia Giacobetti perfumes too--Dzing and Safran Troublant--even though they don't really have many notes in common.

A lovely, wearable everyday scent. I don't get mint or hay, just a soft musky floral that isn't as innocent as it seems.

I adore this scent. It is fresh and clean. Very soft. Just a beautiful perfume. One of the best from L'artisan. If you want a wonderful everyday clean and beautiful scent then buy this one. I adore it!

I get a lot of linden in this -- a rich, honeyed linden that lasts for hours on my skin. Very good sillage. I normally prefer something a bit more "sparkly"/citrusy for summer, but this is so beautiful that I am planning to buy it anyway and work it into my spring/summer retinue. I just can't resist this lovely, sweet-yet-not-overly-flowery scent!

I wanted something light, unobtrusive, pretty and casually appropriate. I thought this might be it but it is far too light. It doesn't last at all. It is gone from my skin in 10 minutes even with a full sample's application. It just doesn't last.

I so wanted to love this fragrance as i adore Giacobetti's En Passant (the most beautiful lilac scent out there) but even after using the whole sample--the staying power was about 3 minutes on me. sob.

I Loved this and thought it matched the description. I wore it to workout in and it passed the "It still smells beautiful when I'm sweaty" test! I felt so pretty and clean without smelling soapy.

This is one lovely, ultrafeminine, light and easy to wear fragrance. Hay and mint terrified me first but were much different than I was expected. Milky, innocent, unique and fresh. Staying power is kinda null.

Amazing how individual chemistry ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime. On me, this is a sharp, forceful linden smell followed by everlasting armpit musk. No hay, no mint. Just linden and musk. And it won't go away. I love Frederick Malle's L'Eau D'Hiver, and can find no connection, which is simply a sign of different body chemistries. Try before you buy.

I accidentally spilled the entire sample bottle all over my arms while trying to open it. Normally this would be devastating as I have a very low tolerance for smells. However with this, it completely disappeared to nothing on my skin almost immediately. What I could smell was delightful though.

Very lovely and soft with pronounced linden and hay notes. As close to a "summer in the country" accord as I've ever smelled.

This is the re-released version of Extrait de Songes - a fabulous soft sweet summer scent, reminiscent in feel of FMalle's L'Eau d'Hiver.
