Citron Boboli - Le Jardin Retrouvé

did you say Citron boboli?

Citron Boboli is an energizing Eau de Parfum with vibrant notes of citrus and warm spices. An original, comforting fragrance, it will transport you in the footsteps of Yuri, the founder of our House, when he lived in India and discovered the richness of Indian aromas and plants. Clove, pepper and lemon will take you on a journey between Asia and Italy.

Created in 1977 by Yuri Gutsatz, Citron Boboli was then named Citron Poivré.

the story BEHIND citron boboli

Citron Boboli was created by Yuri Gutsatz at his home in Cour Jasmin, Paris and was originally named Citron Poivré. It was created in 1977: a year that saw culture and modern life blend in new ways. Baryshnikov brought ballet to the television, The Georges Pompidou Centre was opened and Apple launched its first computer. Amongst this blend of old and new, Citron Poivré was born.

In 2017, Yuri’s son Michel, along with his wife, the artist and writer Clara Feder, had the difficult task of selecting just seven fragrances from Yuri’s vast and meticulously kept archives. The chorus of approval from perfume lovers is proof that Citron Boboli deserved its place upon the stage once more, bringing a 1970s fragrance to a new and appreciative Twenty First century audience.

"Finding a scent that is both fresh and spicy, suitable for both winter and summer and for both sexes isn´t that easy. But Le Jardin Retrouvé's Citron Poivré manages to combine all of that in one perfume"

Citron Boboli: The Scent of Joie de Vivre!

The Sicilian lemon leads the citrus accord from the very first invigorating spray. Feel-good emotions come flooding in, resplendent with holiday memories of sunshine and skies.

Perhaps this Mediterranean beauty will awaken childhood memories of delicious curds and pastries as the notes dance in the air around you. A heart of radiance blooms brightly, dusted lightly with powder as the red blooms of geranium point their faces towards the the sunlight.
Exotic sun warmed spices mellow seamlessly into a comforting embrace of cinnamon and vanilla that lingers long after the sun has set.

Citron Boboli is a scent of contrasts: as wholesome as it is sensual, as bright as it is mellow.
When summer temperatures soar, Citron Boboli refreshes. When the evening sky turns gold, a warm cloak of scent sits gently on your shoulders. A scent for all seasons, a scent for all people.

Clara Feder's inspired text on Boboli garden

After visiting the Palazzo Pitti, you blithely make your way to the heights of the Boboli Gardens. The view of Florence is stunning, but a grotto on your right draws you with its freshness.  Just at the entrance, a statue is decked with beautiful lemons. Are they real? Are they virtual? Why can you smell the fragrance of Italian lemon, petitgrain, bitter orange and galbanum? And that hint of black pepper and cloves, where does it come from?
