Top: Lemon, verbena, petit grain Middle: Verbena, lavender, basil Base: Vetiver, oakmoss

The Early Years of Verveine d’Eté

Verveine d’Eté was created by Yuri Gutsatz and was originally named Verveine Céleste. It was created in 1978: a year that saw the first women astronauts, the One Love Peace Concert in Jamaica and Star Wars break box office records. It was an exciting time to be alive and Verveine Céleste captured that zest for living.

Verveine d’Eté is a revitalizing Eau de Parfum with effervescent notes of fresh green verbena blended seamlessly into an irresistible trail of oak-moss and vetiver.

This scent I can’t get enough of : verbena, basil, lemon and bergamot – Verveine d’Eté from Le Jardin Retrouvé


Verveine d’Eté is Born Again

This beguiling blend of green, aromatic and woody notes is evocative of an afternoon stroll after a massive downpour during springtime. It’s the golden hour and the senses are overwhelmed by citruses, lemon verbena glistens in the dying sun, while vetiver and oak-moss warm up the scent, wrapping up around the freshness like a soft shawl. If this scent was a color, it would’ve been the most gorgeous mint.

I like it a lot. The notes are all treated with care, and there’s a nice green freshness. As it dries, it grows on me even more, developing into a grassy citrus that, unlike modern citruses, does have a bit of staying power..


You walk in the Summer Garden in the heart of Saint Petersburg. There was a refreshing rainstorm this morning, and you sit on a bench in the French garden designed by Peter the Great. You bend down to pick up a ball dropped by some children.  All at once, a perfumed wave of freshness hits you: basil, lemon, bergamot, verbena, and a touch of oak moss. You would so like to take this perfume along with you into the warmer hours of the day …

Here verbena is presented to us with a very green assemblage of herbs that evokes the smell of bunches of freshly cut plants still wet with morning dew. The mix here reminds me of a wonderful verbena soap coupled with classic Eau de Cologne all in one. It embodies qualities that anyone could wear anywhere at any time.
