Water Reed & Papyrus Essence
Dreamlike moments in the shade of majestic trees over a dormant mythical fresh water spring. Aqua Nymphae opens with the fresh aquatic murmur of Water Reeds then gently blends with the woody Papyrus base. A delicate Fresh Floral depicting a moment of reverie in Le Couvent des Minimes' Water Reed Garden. Highly concentrated and long-lasting, based on natural botanical essences in the tradition of French Haute Parfumerie.
Collection developed in Grasse
WATER REED ESSENCE - In days gone by, Water Reed was used in Mesopotamia for its fresh, aquatic notes. Today, it is little used in perfumery due to its complexity, yet its essence reveals an extremely rich palette that adds a new green and light dimension to floral compositions.
PAPYRUS ESSENCE - From the banks of the Nile to French Fine Perfumery, Papyrus has always been a legendary wood. A symbol of eternity in days gone by, its fragrance – through the layering of its fine stems – reveals an array of woody and herbaceous notes. This historic material evokes an ancient atmosphere and is reinvented in a contemporary aquatic green scent.
