Eau de Polder from L'Essence de Mastenbroek launched in 2005, and has one of the best perfume backstories I've ever heard. It was created by artist Birthe Leemeijer and perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri in collaboration with the residents of Mastenbroek, a polder in the Dutch province of Overijssel. The project was initiated by Skor as part of a larger effort to preserve the cultural heritage of the polder:
The polder is under pressure from urban and industrial developments and has therefore been included as one of the projects in the government’s Belvédère National Heritage scheme. The crucial issue here is: to what extent can cultural-historical values be safeguarded and incorporated in a new economic and social reality in the polder?
The creators hope that the fragrance, which has notes of hay, grass, earth and herbs, will preserve the memory of the polder in the minds of the young, many of whom are leaving the polder for futures elsewhere.
L'Essence de Mastenbroek is in perfume oil form, and is available at luckyscent for $130 for 40 ml; samples are available.
