Guerlain L'eau Boisée

When Thierry Wasser, the current master perfumer at French house Guerlain, created the brand’s original Homme Eau de Toilette in 2008, he was inspired by the humble mojito cocktail.

With its notes of citrus, mint and lime, the fragrance was sweet, understated and more than a little rummy. Its latest incarnation, L’Eau Boisée, is a woodier, more adult take on the original, topped up with — in the words of Wasser — “an overdose of vetiver”.

Produced with the Indian variety of the root, lighter than its commonly used Haitian relative, the fragrance is fresh and surprisingly long-lasting, despite the fact it’s an eau de toilette (a lighter option than eau de parfum, which contains a higher concentration of fragrance).

But when to wear this woody little number? L’Eau Boisée is a strong option for the office as it’s light enough not to overpower your co-workers, but sufficiently impactful to get you noticed at a breakfast meeting. The clean-lined, ash-topped bottle will also look the business on your desktop. (£46, Harrods)
