Next month, L'Artisan Parfumeur launches L'Eau de Jatamansi, a new fragrance to match its 100% natural, certified-organic Jatamansi body collection (Body Oil, Milk Bath and Body Cream). Jatamansi is named for the Himalayan nard plant (Jatamansi in Sanskrit), also known as spikenard. Nard is a member of the valerian family and is said to be a calming agent; it is commonly used in incense and in Ayurvedic treatments.
L'Eau de Jatamansi blends nard with notes of clary sage, bergamot, grapefruit, cardamom, iced tea accord, Turkish rose, ylang ylang, patchouli, gaïac, vetiver, sandalwood, papyrus and incense.
