- Continuing the storyline of L’Etrog- after the farmer’s repose in the warmth of their wooden cabin, L’Etrog Acqua opens up like the first rays of sun in a misty morning. The citron in the field has heavy droplets of water from the morning dew. The cool air carries the smell of distant myrtle, lavender and grass opening the farmers’ lungs with incredible freshness. The citron is cool and wet to the touch, the earth beneath is damp and green.
- Created by Rodrigo Flores-Roux, L’Etrog Acqua started as a personal ‘summer’ scent, evoking the open fields of citron rather than the sweet warmth of the woody cabin in L’Etrog. The original date accord of L’Etrog, which procures a velvety dried fruit feeling is here replaced by extra freshness, an aromatic heart of lavender and myrtle and drier woods in the background. L’Etrog Acqua is a thirst-quenching, juicy and very rich Mediterranean scent.
