Eau de Polder

 

L'Essence de Mastenbroek is an artwork by Birthe Leemeijer.

She invited the residents of the Dutch polder Mastenbroek -primarily dairy farmers who have been living and working in the polder for generations- to volunteer and participate in The Essence Club. As members of this club they sourced the essential elements that would eventually make up the perfume L'Essence de Mastenbroek. Since its launch in 2005, the perfume has been sold across the globe. This fluid polder has travelled to far-fetched outposts of the world and mingled with global landscapes, the desires and even the memories of individuals and communities who have never stepped foot in Mastenbroek.
