Got a great compliment on Garrigue from an Italian woman who works in my office, she said it reminded her of her childhood home on Corsica in San Fiurenzu, she said that she used to play with her friends in some of the scrublands on the island. When I told her that the fragrance was Garrigue by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier, she got a bit sullen, she thought an Italian Parfume house had made the fragrance.
So, it really does smell like a 'Garrigue' which translated means scrubland. The scrubland on Corsica has wild thyme, lavender, rosemary, and tons of other herbs. She mentioned that the best Oregano in the world is the wild Corsican type, she promised to bring me in some to try (I am a pretty good Italian cook-NOT a Chef, but a good and basic cook).
She wears Zagara di Sicilli (Orange Flower) which is just perfect for her....
