The combination of a beautiful clean orris blends with the aroma of budding tree in early spring, a very gentle blossom that lacks significant sweetness. The feeling of sitting on a forest clearing in early spring comes to mind, with a sense of delicacy and fragility woven into these bright top notes.

The drydown introduces more depth, with impressions of a very light cinnamon and transient whiffs of cardamom added in, with notions of a light just yellowing Virginia tobacco mixed with fresh hay appearing; touches of Coumarin are woven into this development of delicate complexity. In the base, which is somewhat more linear and less exciting, the hay and the cinnamon gently fade out.

The sillage is moderate, the projection good and the longevity about five hours on my skin.

An incredibly well blended spring creation, combining mutifaceted sensuousness with pointillistic fragility. What bowls me over is the incredible purity of these natural ingredients and their accomplished combination and permutations. 4.25/5.

it was(alas) my absolute favorite, so milky , so tender, so clean, so exquisite

" i was in love immediatly "

i bought ten bottles in 2003 and 2004
and have tried to find some more all around the world. but no success.
I hope victoire Gobin Daudé will find opportunity to create it again
for our (MY) pleasure...
I still have a half bottle… It's a pity.... i'm waiting.

Sève Exquise is like a night or evening version of Sous le Buis: same garden, different time of the day. It's slightly sweet and perhaps even more "chlorophyllic" than its morning counterpart.

Thumbs WAY up! This is my absolute favorite of the Gobin-Daude line, which has become virtually impossible to find in the US. It's called "exquisite sap" for a good reason--it is beyond exquisite, a gentle, fresh, tender green scent like the beginning of spring, like new growth. It wafts softly and remains rounded and gentle throughout its evolution, never becoming a harsh chypre nor too-fresh ozonic: it begins almost lemony-creamy, and frsh-leafy, and continues to a green place that is not so much green woods as truly 'sap'-like, sweet and takes me to a wonderful place, lying on soft grass looking up at the sunlight filtering through a lush leafy canopy rustling gently in the breeze....
