MIMOSA POUR MOI/ L’ARTISAN PARFUMEUR (1992)
The smell of Spring. A‘laugh that mocks the winter’. L’Artisan takes a gorgeously delicate, aerian mimosa scent – wind-blown flowers and green stems – and suffuses it with a sunny, marine panorama. Starting with a curious, watery, almost cucumber beginning, the dream-like breeze of the flowers lends an exhilarating rush of springtime hope – clean and natural – the smell of outside, and childhood hunts for Easter eggs. It is an exceptionally unique perfume, neither male nor female, and possibly this house’s masterpiece. Not easy to wear successfully, but a very beautiful scent for those who hate to feel reined in.
