Notes  Lavender, hay, coumarin, vetiver, incense

Description  L'Eau de Paille is Serge Lutens most recent entry in his Les Eaux collection of fragrances. A classical oriental composition, L'Eau de Paille revolves around a central note of coumarin, the main aromatic element of tonka bean. Coumarin has a long history of use in fragrances—it was one of the first aroma molecules to be isolated—and it is prized for its ability to impart a warm, hay-like aroma. Here it appears rather unadorned with just a touch of lavender up top. The fragrance shortly segues into a dry base, dominated by vetiver with a light touch of incense. The overall effect is something akin to a parched lawn during the hottest days of summer. A hazy, warm scent for equally warm days.
