Le Jardin Retrouvé Citron Boboli & Rose Trocadéro
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend another event organised by The Perfume Society and Shephen Matthews that allowed us to discover the revived Le Jardin Retrouvé perfume house.
Le Jardin Retrouvé was founded in 1975 by Yuri Gutsatz, and was the very first of what would later become known as “niche” perfume brands. When he died in 2005, Le Jardin Retrouvé slowly declined but in 2016, Yuri’s son, Michel, decided to revive Le Jardin Retrouvé with his wife Clara who is behind the beautiful illustrations.
For the revival they picked 7 perfumes from the archives, Eau des Délices, Cuir De Russie, Sandalwood Sacré, Tubéreuse Trianon, Verveine d`Été, Citron Boboli & Rose Trocadéro.
All of them are beautiful and justify the loyal following they have but today I’ll focus on 2, Citron Boboli & Rose Trocadéro
Spicy Citrus: Italian Lemon, Paraguay Petit Grain, Brasilian Orange, Black Pepper, Galbanum
Very bright and refreshing, a citrus perfume with amazing longevity, fresh and invigorating with a spicy bite that gives it an edible quality almost like a freshly baked lemon cake.
Floral: Absolute Bulgarian Rose, French Blackcurrant, Clove, Musk
A gorgeous pure rose perfume with roses in full bloom; red, with velvety petals and long stems that give the scent a slight green / herbal note. A truly classic rose scent, one to be used for reference in my opinion for whoever wants to try a true rose fragrance.
Le Jardin Retrouvé is a perfume brand with rich history and loyal followers plus a beautiful shop in the heart of Paris. I'm looking forward to new re-releases from them and also their new 9ml bottle.If you'd like to discover them yourselves you can click here
