DescriptionA simple note, white lilac, seized in a short instant, at the cusp of springtime. Composed by Olivia Giacobetti, En Passant is an evocation of Doisneau’s Paris, of divine smells wafting from gardens hidden behind walls. A few orange leaves, cucumber absolute and wheat absolute, that accompany this impressionist perfume. A charming creation that skillfully sublimates the gift of nature A serene and radiant perfume.
Pause at the edge of a garden in springtime and breathe in. A fragrant lilac whipped by the wind and you get... En Passant. Olivia Giacobetti's "impressionistic" fragrance plays with one simple note, that of white lilac, captured at an instant in time. The composition glorifies this scent from nature, marries it with watery notes, orange tree leaves, cucumber and wheat. Radiant and serene.
