    Default Le Jardin Retrouve - any experiences with this house?

    Hi guys. Has anyone tried any of this house's offerings? I'm looking for a good fragrance with a prominent verbena note and their Verveine D'ete caught my eye. I searched the forums and didn't see any topics on this house. Any thoughts/experiences you can share would be greatly appreciated.

    Cuir de Russie is a gorgeous rich floral leather and Tubereuse Trianon a very nice creamy tuberose. I haven't tried the Verveine but they're generally good quality.

    I've tried all seven in their main line while in Paris recently and they are all very nice especially Citron Boboli and Verveine D'Ete. The former a wonder aromatic with just a nice touch of spice and the latter a strong verbena with a hint of eucalyptus. Didn't purchase the line only due to size of spray bottles.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Agree with this assessment, having the exact 2 fragrances in my wardrobe. Smoothly blended, some of their fragrances tend to smell a little perfumey at first spritz like the heady perfumes of yesteryears but settle quickly into a quiet shimmer. They introduced the 15 ml option last year which IMO is always a great option but their regular spray bottles are 50 ml with 125 ml-sized top up bottles.

    MrsDalloway, Hednic, and Diamondflame: thanks for your feedback! It's greatly appreciated. I think it's definitely worth ordering a few samples at the very least. Their prices are quite reasonable ($8 for a 2-ml spray sample).
