L’Artisan Bucoliques de Provence is the first of a series inspired by the different regions of France. Inspired by the Grasse region, the "spiritual birthplace of French perfume", Bucoliques has notes of leather, lavender, spices and iris. It is an eau de parfum, edp. This fragrance was released in 2016.
From Basenotes - "A pleasant mix of lavender and tonka, sweetened with pie spices and deepened with iris, with just a hint of funk underneath to reference classic fougeres."
From Now Smell This - "The opening is just enough sharp lavender — I did not used to like my lavender sharp, but now that it's very nearly endangered in perfumery,2 I've come to appreciate it in small doses — with just enough of an aromatic / herbal bite, brightened with a little citrus. The sharpness fades as Bucoliques nestles itself into a cloud of iris, with a few flower petals strewn here and there. The leather, a nod to the Grasse tradition of scenting leather gloves, is done here more like a pale suede, and the whole thing manages to remind me of both a floral-tinged cosmetic powder and the outdoors, near fields and flowers, on a warm day. It is, as advertised, completely unisex."
