New from L'Artisan Parfumeur

A duo of new colognes inspired by the works of Manet & Monet.

L'Artisan Parfumeur - Cologne Duo

A series of new colognes by L'Artisan Parfumeur have arrived –– each paying tribute to the paintings of Claude Monet and Édouard Manet respectively. Created to echo the iconic works of these master impressionist painters, 'Au Bord de l'Eau' is a mist of sparkling citrus, resting on green and woody undertones and 'Sur l'Herbe' is spring fresh –– softened with a touch of white musk.

Inspired by the signature work of Claude Monet, this perfume uses raw olfactive materials as if they were paint pigments. Like Monet’s masterpiece, we alternate between the apparent realism of the zest of bergamot and lemon –– its freshness is mixed with the petals of the bitter orange and the more complex texture nestled below.

'Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe' provoked a real scandal when seen by art critics in Paris in 1863. Despite Manet’s claims to classical art references, this scene, representing two fully dressed men with a naked woman picnicking in a forest, was considered as obscene by his contemporaries. It’s this raw modernity which inspired this super fresh fragrance –– featuring notes of bergamot, neroli, white musk and amberwood.
