Serge Lutens Gris Clair is a much milder version of Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande, bright, slightly minty, cooling lavender over smoky woods and incense. A beautiful and very zen fragrance. Gris Clair is in the Woody Floral Musk fragrance group.
from vintagenonchalance - "Gris Clair starts off strongly with aromatic note of lavender tiny purple flowers crushed between the fingers, their minty sweetness and herbal woodiness cooling the skin. Fresh, clean, green and aromatic. Beautiful. Quite quickly however, Gris Clair moves into a warmer phase. Under beautiful lavender is a flowerbed of delicate iris with just a hint of powdery quality, combined with woody notes. ...It's like wearing cozy cashmere sweater. Soft and warm. Comfort and melancholy at the same time."
from perfumeposse - "Gris Clair (2006) – Lavender with training wheels. Actually, it’s great all on its own and is one of the few lavenders that I find easy to wear because I’m not spending all day thinking “yikes, lavender is following me around!”
