Citron d’Erable

Citron d'ErableCitron d’Erable is exactly what Atelier Cologne says it is: lemon maple, with a sequoia base.

Opens with the brand’s signature burst of citrus: fresh sharp zest, with sweet custard underneath. Slowly settles to lemonade sweetened with maple syrup, which seems like a weird description, but it works in a lovely Vermont hippy way. Lasts a good half hour before fading into dry rich woods.

It’s very non-flirtatious and personal–wear in autumn on “me days.”

Macy Gray makes self indulgence necessary, rather than vanity.
