Sadly, I use this in my linen closet. I found it to be a marine floral.
Sonia Rykeil and her daugher, Natalie, are businesswomen to the core. I suspect they chop and change to cover the market.
There are hot summer days when the T shirt bottle of Rykiel Rose is irresistible but L'Eau is living in the dark. Poor baby
I bought this fragrance on sale and then initially regretted it. It smelled astringent and cheap so I rarely used it for about 3 years. Then a few weeks ago I picked it up again. Perhaps my nose or my body chemistry changed, because I really like the musky florals. It lasts long, too.
This is just beautifully produced. It’s a very soft fresh floral, like muguet and jasmine combined with orange blossom. It has light citrus notes and a nice woody musky base which is very delicate but refreshing. It’s a great summer scent which is particularly popular with the young crowd. If it were fruitier it would be similar to Light Blue or Dolly Girl but it has to be put in a league of its own.
