French niche line Jardins D’Écrivains has launched a new trio of "splash colognes": L'Eau de Leopardi (shown), L'Eau de Kakuzô and L'Eau de Marceline.*
The splash colognes Jardins D’Écrivains draws on a particularly refined literature to explore notes delicately uncluttered.

L'Eau de Kakuzô (jade dew) ~ "Okakura Kakuzô 1862/1913 Japanese erudite. The book of tea is a subtle literary work. The jade dew evokes harmony, purity and serenity. An olfactory ceremony composed of green tea, cedarwood, coriander, hedione, gyokuro."
L'Eau de Marceline (floral infusion) ~ "Marceline Desbordes-Valmore 1786/1859 Frenc [sic] poetess « Oh ! Air ! Perfumes ! Flowers to feed me ! » A poetic and floral infusion composed of orange blossom, honeysuckle, cherry water, iris, ylang, rose."
Jardins D’Écrivains L'Eau de Leopardi, L'Eau de Kakuzô and L'Eau de Marceline are available in 300 ml, €80 each.
