I love to wear this in all kinds of weather, which is unusual for me. It's refreshing in the summer, clean and crisp in the winter and I keep it in my desk for a pick me up between clients. It has a masculine edge that stops it from being too girly, but it turns just the right kind of sweet on the skin and it settles into my clothes as a fresh, light veil. I love how it combines the lemon and grass notes without smelling like shower gel, managing to be at once fresh and complex as well as sophisticated but sparkling.

It took me a while to realize I loved this one, because it's so gentle and unassuming, it didn't bowl me over right away. But the love for it snuck up on me with more wearings as I discovered what a beautiful piece of work it is. For one thing, it features a lemon that doesn't disappear within minutes or turn candy-ish, but stays fresh and real, which is unusual on me. In fact, perhaps it's more of a lemon verbena, because a living herb garden is indeed one of the main impressions I get overall--basil and mint are in there too, both light and perfectly balanced. And there's a hint of sea-salt breeze in the background. It's kind of like the nicest, prettiest, natural-herb soap you've ever used. It doesn't change much from start to finish, but on me it has surprisingly good staying power without ever being overpowering. Perfect for summer, and probably quite uplifting in winter too.

It is the most nose-piercing aggressive fragrance I have recently smelt. L’eau de L’artisan is strongly refreshing and grassy. Basil and mint give a high pitch to the other notes. It dries down to a cloying sweet mixture on my skin. Unlike other L'Artisan fragrances, the lasting power is good.

Notes: lemon, verbena, basil, mint, tree moss, hay, seaweed.
This fragrance opens with a sparkly citrus accord dominated by lemon. As the fragrance settles on my skin a sweet note - mint - mixes beautifully with the citrus notes. Specks of basil and seaweed add dimension and contrast to the sweeter main notes, resulting in a well-balanced composition. There is enough tartness, sweetness, saltiness and herbal earthiness to make this a very interesting and easy-to-wear summer scent. Unfortunately, it does not last very long, after roughly four hours it is gone.

Truly a classy and joyful scent. I believe both men and women could comfortably wear this. As many have noted, the seaweed notes in the middle drydown are unbelievably beautiful - I can't stop smelling myself. The opening is very crisp, lemony and refreshing which is perfect for summer or on those mornings where you just didn't get enough sleep (which is most of my mornings). My overall impression is definitely beachy - you can almost smell the salt air & the fresh sunshine while you are sipping margaritas. However, as also noticed by many others here the lasting power is TERRIBLE. Gone in about an hour or so, which is horribly disappointing for such a lovely fragrance (and high price). I swapped this with a kind MUA-er, so am lucky to have the bottle to enjoy while I can, but I highly doubt that I'll purchase this - not worth the money for such poor staying power.

Smells like a first date at the beach that ended with sex behind a sand dune. Wish the seaweed middle tones could last all day.
If you like your summer scents to be complex and not ubiquitous, this is it. Doesn't last forever, but so worth it.

This definitely stands in the citrus family-one of those summery perfumes that is light, fresh and generally non-disturbing. It starts off smelling very "green" and then it becomes softer and sweeter. Its biggest weakness, though, is its staying power that is almost zero!! It almost dissapears within half an hour! In general, it is not bad but nothing special that would justify this high price. I would say that you could get similar effects from a good drugstore cologne.

II really like this fragrance. It is fresh lemony scent that makes me happy every time I smell it.
It is a nice surprise because I didn't like most of their samples ( I ordered 5) except Mure et Musk. L'Eau de L'Artisan is the last vial I'm on now and must add this one to the list of L'Artisan Perfumes I'd like to have.
But staying power is not that good and it's too expensive so I probably won't purchase the whole bottle.

This is such a lovely, green scent. I wear it on warm days or when I don't want my fragrance to be too "loud." My only complaint is that it doesn't last long and I have to re-apply after a couple of hours.

Lemony at first, sweeter in drydown. There's something muddled about it, though--it seems out-of-focus somehow.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
It smells like fresh cut grass and lemon but has fairly poor staying power on me, it loses the citrus and turns into a expensive smelling soapy cologne, pretty much the same drydown that I really don't love withmadarine tout simplement as well. Its nice but there are so many citrus fragrances out there that smell just as good which last much longer so I can't jusifty this one. It just seems to be lacking that one ingredient that makes me say wow i want to keep wearing this one.

Grassy and lemony and soapy and masculine--not words I want to use in connection with an expensive fragrance I've just bought. But these are the words that my SO and I came up with to describe this scent. Not feminine at all and the dry-down was even more sharp. Not for me at all!

I perceive the very clean and fresh basil and lemon notes in L'Eau de
L'Artisan. This would be a great work, casual or sport fragrance,
and could easily be worn by either gender. Aesthetically I like this
fragrance a lot and it reminds me of other basil fragrances such as
JM Lime Basil Mandarin and AG Eau de Sud. Unfortunately my
chemistry does not do well with basil in recent times, so one point
off for that, but I'd love to smell L'Eau de L'Artisan on others.

The initial delicious blast of lemon, basil and mint does make me feel a bit like a salad, but that only lasts about ten seconds before my skin turns this scent to pure soap. Expensive French soap, sure, but soap nonetheless. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy this scent -- salad, soap and all -- but for some reason it's a little disappointing. I think if I could get a better balance between the salad and soap I'd be happier, but I still wear it on those days when I don't really feel like wearing a particular fragrance. I'll probably finish my 1/2 oz. bottle, but I don't think I'll purchase again.

I got L'eau de L'artisan as an "extra" when I ordered samples from Aedes. My initial thought was too "lemony" (but not Pledge) for me because I normally wear floral scents and have never really liked citrusy scents. I tried this on and kept smelling this amazing smell that was fresh, a little floral, cool, bright and refreshing. The longer I wore it the better it smelled. (I ordered 7 samples and probably had on 6 of them at the time but this is the only one that really got my attention) I have almost finished my sample and can't see myself without this gorgeous fragrance. Guess I'll be adding to my collection.

OK, my first reaction was "harsh, sharp lemony cleaning product! Not for me!" But I can see how if applied lightly this could be light and refreshing in warmer weather. Still not my personal bag of chips, not quite soft enough for me, too 'bright', but it's prettier than I thought at first.

Pretty but unremarkable. It's the non-floral version of La Chasse. Very light, fresh, minty lemon, which makes me think of sitting outside on a hot summer day, sipping iced tea in the shade. It's unisex, but has a sparkling quality which would make it easy for a woman to wear. While this is nice, I wouldn't pay the full price when there are so many cheap options for a similar effect.

I just love this
perfume. Very fresh, green and lemony with a bit of floral. It is soft and feminine. Always makes me feel good when I wear it. I love it.

The paradise opens itself for the lovers of Hesperides. Very fresh and long-lasting. A mint leaf lies next to a bed of basil In it a fresh harvested lemon, fresh cut grass and a hint of lake-lilies between lake-grass.
I love this scent; unobstrusively...a statement.

I call this my "bitter lemon" scent - strongly citrus, nicely astringent and very refreshing. Yes, unisex, but I don't object to that and in fact I find I often tend to prefer the stronger "presence" of perfume designed for men. The first high-end fragrance that I've used up the bottle on, and it was the 100ml bottle, to boot! If you like Chanel Cristalle, I think you (or your guy) might get along well with this.
