L'Artisan L'Eau du Caporal was developed by perfumer Jean Laporte and launched in 1985. It has been reissued this year by L'Artisan along with Tea for Two and Oeillet Sauvage. Named after Emperor Napoleon I, or "The Little Corporal" as he was affectionately called by his soldiers, it is an invigorating interpretation of a classic fougere and features top notes of lemon and tangerine; middle notes of geranium and lavender; and base notes of cedar, patchouli, vetiver and oakmoss. It is an eau de toilette, edt.

Reviews of L'Artisan L'Eau du Caporal

Basenotes - "tarts with good citrus note, quickly moves to herbal (like tarragon, marjoram) and minty notes. The mint is well done, not like toothpast or peppermint candy. Rather, it is green, leafy, with a hint of lemon zest and rather herbal in style. Cool, even a bit camphor-like, the latter could be from the lavender. Very refreshing. Hints of grassy vetiver and salty oakmoss appear. Dry (not sweet), substantial but not heavy, wears well. Has an intriguing, even haunting quality. The dry-down has a salty mossy note and retains the herbal mint. Overall, a very successful reformulation."

Fragrantica: "...exalting lemon and bergamot, a cornucopia of bracing herbs, and musky woody bases. Here, however, there is a spearmint note that seems the keystone, announcing itself from application into the dry down. Not to fear, this is mint done right (uncommon for sure), and in place of bergamot is the sweeter tangerine, adding a succulence and ripeness that imparts a quenching effect."
