    Default Lasting power of L'Eau De L'Artisan?

    I think I've found my ideal 'green garden' spring/summer scent and that would be L'Eau De L'Artisan. However, due to the fact that star ratings still are not functional... I don't know if it would actually be worth it to purchase. I can't tell how long it would last on my skin from this sample I have, so I hoping someone can comment on its longetivity? If it's not that great (less than 4 hours) then what are some alternatives? I've searched for a grassy, garden smell for some time and while this isn't perfect, its the closest I've had. Only thing I would change for this would be less lemon, is there something like that out there?

    A few 'grassy' frags out there, but IMO nothing compares to LEdA. I love it.

    I am using up my small decant of it slowly, hoping to make it last thru the warm weather season.

    It lasts even shorter on me, perhaps only 3 hours or less - but I have found that is what happens with almost ALL of the L'Artisans.

    I have to literally drench myself in it, to get it to last long (10-15 sprays)

    One of my all time favorites as well and one fragrance I think I'll never be without. On me it lasts quite long and can still smell it onmy skin several hours after application. It doesn't really make a statement, but it is the fragrance I go to when nothing else seem to fit. It makes my heart sing for sure!

    It's only good for two or three hours on me.I only own it because I got it very cheap.

    It lasts about 3 hours on me. It might be not the most groundbreaking fragrance L Artisan has ever made but who cares. Its a very nice spring/summer eau with its citrus/green/mint-combination of notes. Although I dont consider it a masterpiece, I reach for it quiet often....

    Of the cologne-style fragrances, it's the best in terms of longevity on me. It's also a very refreshing fragrance; I really like it.

    Of all the scents I know this one is the closest to it, and yes, without any lemon.

    I'm right there with your "ideal" impression as this is one of my very favorites for warm weather. This is one of just a small handful of fragrances I would not be without, and also one of the small number I am not afraid to apply a bit more generously. Even without that treatment, however, I find the longevity is reasonable. And after the "overt" phase I find that it dries down to a wonderful and very long-lasting (overnight) skin scent that I have referred to as a "parched savanna" smell. Actually, though, I've never been to a parched savanna, and what it really reminds me of are summer vacations I spent in the Idaho panhandle amid tinder-dry grass, underbrush and ponderosa pines.
