Eau de Couvent was launched in late 2010 by artist Candida Romero. The proceeds will assist in her efforts to restore the Couvent San Francescu in the Nebbio region of Corsica.
The fragrance was reportedly inspired by the scent from a glass bottle Romero found in the convent's gardens:
It is in memory of the flask of crystal found in the tall grass of the Corsican scrub at feet of the old Convent San Francescu in Nebbio that water of convent was created.
This flask where from escaped a light scent…
With water of convent find the simple happiness of a perfumed and dynamic fresh water in the scents of violet, jasmine and mandarin carefully measured for a special moment.
A return of course in the garden of Hesperides.
