Eau des Baux by L’Occitane Review
The Eau des Baux, having been inspired by the brave knights who protected the city fortress of the same name, will have you expecting a strong, extremely masculine scent. The first half of that is true, at least during the opening and once the base notes settle. But this also comes with some honey-like sweetness that is warm and resinous. With average sillage and performance, you can borrow some of the courageous feeling lent by the fragrance for a few hours.
An accessible scent
Warm and comes with some honey-like sweetness
Average sillage and longevity
Not too masculine so it also appeals to women
The base notes can be overpowering in certain environments
This L’Occitane scent is inspired by medieval legends in the Chevaliers des Baux, with their symbol included both in the bottle and the packaging. Released by the brand in 2006, it was created by perfumer Karine Dubreuil. Even though this is a fragrance supposedly ideal for the knights, it is easy to like and women can choose to wear it as well. The notes are pretty straightforward: these include cardamom essential oil, incense, red peppercorn and provencal cypress.
