The Eau Des Baux collection draws inspiration from the legendary knights of Les Baux, defenders of the 11th Century castle which sits upon a steep rocky outcrop overlooking the Alpilles in Provence that was frequently under attack, and defended by a band of brave soldiers.
This long-lasting, woody fragrance conjures up images of Provence's swaying cypress trees which so captured the imagination of those medieval fighters that they adopted it as their emblem and – centuries later – the impressionist artists who captured the tree's flame-like dance as it sways in the powerful mistral winds.
The undertones of incense lend a smoky and sensual effect to the fragrance, creating a dreamy aroma which instantly evokes the magic and mystery of the chivalrous tales surrounding the ruined castle of Les Baux. This mellow note becomes particularly evocative when combined with the crisp scent of cypress in this fragrance.
