L'Artisan Caligna takes you on a stroll through the Grasse countryside where the mountains and Mediterranean Sea meets. It features a lesser known ingredient from the Grasse region - clary sage which is the top note of this fragrance. Middle notes are fig and jasmine marmalade and base notes are woods, pine and resin from the lentisk plant (from the hillsides of Grasse). The name comes from the Provençal word "to court" or "to flirt". It is an eau de parfum, edp.
From Now Smell This - "Overall, Caligna is lighter in "color" and "texture" than I anticipated; if you're looking for an earthy, rooty take on the South of France, this scent will seem a little pale to you. It's a smooth, wearable interpretation of a particular landscape, and in that sense it also reminds me a little bit of Hermès's "Garden" line (Un Jardin en Méditerranée and the rest). It's well-crafted from high-quality ingredients and it feels like a "niche" fragrance in the best sense of the word. It could easily be worn by either men or women and it seems timed well as a spring release."
From Basenotes - "The opening is excellent. It is a fig note which is green and refreshing. It works well with the dusky clary sage and a hint of violet leaf, which ameliorate the fig note and provide a very nice, complex opening chord.
The lentisk further develops the dusky-green theme. I also get a forest and forest-floor note from the pine needles.
Overall, this is a very good scent in the garrigue style -- a breeze wafting over resinous shrubs."
