Egyptian jasmine absolute
Imagine yourself in an Italian citrus field: The scent opens up like the first rays of sun in a misty morning. The earth underfoot is damp and green and the morning dew sparkles on the citron's skin, while distant myrtle, lavender and grass bring green, herbal notes to your nose. A long-lasting, thirst-quenching citrus fragrance based on Medieval Calabria, L’ETROG ACQUA includes notes of: Myrtle leaf, Calabrese citron, Sicilian lemon, Italian mandarin, bergamot, Mediterranean lavender, labdanum and cedar wood.
7.5 ml / 0.25 fl oz. Portable size.

Early Morning, October 1175, Calabria, Italy.
The cool night air dissipates under the sun’s first rays. The ripe citrus in the field has absorbed all the water of the morning dew and the farmers are ready to work on the misty green fields, speckled by the bright yellow of the citron. They leave their woody cabin and take a deep breath…
Developed with Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
A juicy, green, refreshing citrus fragrance with a classic Italian feel and a woody base.
7.5 ml / 0.25 fl oz. travel sprayer. Portable, convenient and practical.
- 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.
