Officine Universelle Buly has taken a trip to the allotment, or jardin ouvrier in French, and been inspired to create six new fragrances. Each has been inspired by a collection of very old seeds and seedlings curated by 18th and 19th century botanists.
Les Jardin Français brings to life an intoxicating and unique palette of garden fragrances all with vegetal ingredients, from oriental watercress to Afghan carrot and Iraqi beetroot.
The fragrance include: Andes Verbena & Ulu Basil, Indian Cucumber & Syrian Mint, Oriental Watercress & Sardinian Parsley, Scandinavian Redcurrant & Peruvian Tomato, Iraqi Beetroot & Egyptian Rhubarb and Afghan Carrot & Caribbean Sweet Potato.
Officine Universelle Buly – Les Jardin Français – 75ml – £145
TheChicGeek says, “Buly always loves a deep dive into history. This set of veg – 6 a day?! – is perfectly timed for people tending their crops of juicy cherry tomatoes or thinning out their beetroot and the multitude of fragrances we experience just from working outside.
The fragrance that stood out for me was the Scandinavian Redcurrant & Peruvian Tomato. It had an almost orange fruity feel at the top and that warmth, green stem scent you get from tomato plants.
There is something reassuring but also different using tomato in a fragrance.
This is a range of fragrances that will encourage everybody to get back to their roots.”
