Champ de Baies By Evelyne Boulanger Eau de Cologne
The countryside has retained the bluish shades of the night. At a bend in the road, a blackberry tree appears. In the middle of brambles, the fleshy fruits soaked in dew are enticing. Champ de Baies captures the aerial footprint of a mulberry tree in the early morning, just before a heat wave.
In this tangle of wild blackberries and unexpected raspberries, a refreshing sensation is encountered as if the composition were drenched in water. An impression is created by the fresh sorbet like notes of a Japanese variety pear nashi and an accord of rose rhubarb and bergamot bark which evokes a large glass of iced tea. At the heart, the berries wrap around a jasmine bush while white musks and amber bring soft comfort to the skin. A touch of cedar and patchouli finally offers a sleek, elegant sillage, never syrupy.
