Serge Lutens L'Eau de Paille, released in 2016, is part of the new Les Eaux de Politesse collection. Paille, straw in French, literally means hay water. The scent of new mown hay (from hay absolute) sits on notes of cereals, vetiver and frankincense. Hay absolute is a prized material and was used in another popular Lutens fragrance, Chergui. L'Eau de Paille is inspired by a hot day of harvesting wheat during the summer. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
