L'Heure Vertueuse III Review

L’Heure Vertueuse is a vivid evocation of Mediterranean verdure. The pungent greenery of cis-3-hexenol recalls freshly cut fields of grass and is here paired with rustic lavender and an impression of wild mint which plays cache-cache with my nose. There's possibly a touch of Floralozone too, adding a fresh breeziness to the composition. 
Linear and relatively short lasting, the fragrance makes few concessions. Those feeling ungenerous may call it a one-trick-pony, but given the trajectory of mainstream perfumery, this kind of audacious release is to be encouraged. 

Nose: Mathilde Laurent
House: Cartier
Release date: 2012
Notes (per Fragrantica): absinthe, rosemary, mastic, thyme, verbena, lavender
