For those of you looking for an exotic and unique style of light summer citrus scent, let us introduce you to L’Etrog, by Arquiste. The Etrog is another name for citron fruit, and known as “The Fragrance of Heaven” in the Mediterranean, and is a major part of regional harvest celebrations.
If you’ve never had the chance to sample this citrus note before, The Etrog, or citron fruit, smells like a bright, powdered lemon. And so Arquiste’s L’Etrog perfume begins as an airy, clean lemon citrus scent with an exotic, earthy background of dark, date fruit, myrtle leaves and vetiver.
L’Etrog is a fantastic pick for the spring and summer. The opening of lemony citron and green myrtle leaves is juicy, bright, and refreshing. It conjures up a fantasy of strolling under swaying palm trees, with the tangy scent of freshly harvested lemons wafting from ancient Mediterranean citrus groves. The powdered edge of the citron is like a soft breeze blowing in from the coast. L’Etrog is an uplifting and exhilarating fragrance.
This fragrance’s exciting combination of notes makes L’Etrog both versatile and mysterious. The myrtle leaves and vetiver ground this scent in the here-and-now with their calming, green, and rustic facets, while the dark juice of the date fruit is a clever complement to the citron’s airy lemon meringue.
The contrast of light vs. dark citrus and light vs. dark green notes makes L’Etrog both a day and night scent, and opens it up to a wide range of wardrobe choices. It wears equally well for either a man or woman, and stays very close to the skin, with discreet and intimate sillage.
The lemon powder of the citron can pair with a casual dress or khakis, while the darker date fruit elevates this scent into trying it with your go-to Little Black Dress or elegant suit-and-tie ensemble. L’Etrog is both exotic and approachable, and will add a touch of Mediterranean mystique no matter if you dress it up or down.
L’Etrog’s citron-based beginning is a fun and refreshingly unique take on a summertime scent. If you have run through all the lemon/lime/orange citrus fragrances in your scent wardrobe, and want something a little more complex and daring, L’Etrog is a sophisticated and memorable choice. To the harvest!
