Fleurs de Sel Review

Fleurs de Sel is an unusual aromatic chypre.
With distinct marine overtones, the perfume opens to a rich accord of Herbes de Provence, citrus and dry, woody florals. Like some kind of medieval poultice, its medicinal associations are strengthened by a notable dose of clovey (iso-/) eugenol. In the drydown, a restrained base emerges smelling of vetiver, a touch of hay and real oakmoss.
Although Fleur de Sel’s myriad elements work in surprising concert, for me, the whole never quite manages to add up to more than the sum of its parts.
