    Default Does anyone know the perfumer(s) behind Eau des Baux?

    I absolutely adore this fragrance. Not often do I buy 2 bottles at once, but here I did. I can't find who made this one. I would like to try more from this perfumer. Or is it just an in-house perfumer for L'Occtine?

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    I believe it is an in house perfumer. The SA at L' Occitane didn't even know.

    I heard somewhere that it was by the same person that created Gucci PH II. Dont know how true this is.

    It's interesting, as a fan of lavender, I never really fell for Eau des Baux. It's one of those lavender scents, though, that I plan to revisit years from now since maybe it'll click eventually with me. For now though, I must admit it rubs me the wrong way. Although, it seems I am in the minority.

    Thanks for the info, Mike.

    I like Eau des Baux, esp. this time of year. The Shower Gel is also terrific. Wouldn't have minded trying her AA's - I guess they were seasonal releases, never come across them.

    Eau Des Baux smells like band-aids to me and I can no longer wear it... sadness

    It does smell unbelievably similar to TV though

    I think you may mean L'Occitan. Eau des Baux doesn't have any lavender notes, it's vanilla + incense.

    You should drop by the local L'Occitane store in that case. EDB was my #2 worn frag last year for a reason.
