Jardin Du Poete
Brand Eau d'Italie
Eau d'Italie teams up again with Bertrand Duchaufour for this lyrical interpretation of an al fresco dinner in a Sicilian garden. Orange in every tone – tart, bitter, sweet – is livened up with grapefruit, whose raspy, slightly sulfurous facets are underlined with cassis and the minty buchu leaf; basil conjures the aromatic herbal garden. These green facets, as well as the rosy undertones of the grapefruit segue into the green, watery, rose-like cyclamen, a natural companion to lily of the valley and rose providing a rich, moist, floral counterpoint to the sparkle of citrus… Immortelle, moss and hay conjure the heat exhaled by vegetation as the sun sets after a warm summer day.
Like its source of inspiration, the “Poet's Garden” manages to find a perfect balance between citrus, herbal, floral and wood notes; between the vitality of nature in the Mediterranean, and the harmonious, millennial Mediterranean culture.

I'm finding more and more that a cypress is a note that I seem to like. Jardin du Poete is a nice herbal green vegetal scent. It has this cool/cold effect without being balmy. The citruses and florals are well balanced with the herbs remaining dominant.
Poor sillage, unfortunately. The longevity is slightly better but still lacking compared to othe perfumes.
