Caudalie’s trio of “scents from the vine” fragrance was created by Mathilde Thomas to capture the tantalizing aroma of strolling through her vineyard at dawn, noon and dusk. Each scent has it’s own distinctive lure, and can impart a little bit of summer as you wistfully transition to fall fragrances.

Fleur de Vigne bolsters the vineyard’s delicate, ephemeral grape flower scent with notes of watermelon, cedar, white rose and grapefruit. It’s light enough to spritz throughout the day at work as an energizing pick-me-up, and can be worn in the sun since it’s not photosensitive. Airy enough to be layered with your favorite Eau de Toilette, Fleur de Vigne can also stand alone as an all-purpose fragrance.

Zeste de Vigne delivers the olfactory equivalent of a noontime stroll through the vineyard’s orangerie, with the oranges drenched in sunlight. Notes of sharp, tangy citrus, refreshing lemon and tropical orange blossom round out this delightful fragrance. As the air grows cooler with hints of temperatures to come, you’ll appreciate recapturing summer’s warmest scents.

The des Vignes was inspired by the mingling of warm sunlight and the promise of evening as dusk sets in on the horizon. Infused with ginger, musk and uplifting neroli, this sensual fragrance is slightly sweet and subtle, and can be worn throughout the four seasons and layered with the other Vigne fragrances.
