“The Same River Once” is the first iteration of the 2018 Cambiennes. It is the recipe that Fabienne used for her very first Cambienne which was released 11 years ago on March 1, 2007.
The name for this Cambienne was a play on the philosopher Heraclitus’ famous dictum “No man ever steps in the same river twice.” We feel confident Fabienne would have gotten a kick from that!
Cambienne changes with the seasons. “The Same River Once” starts out as a portrait of this time of year (March 1) and will continue to change as the year progresses toward flowers, more green, earth is gently nudged into the background, then to the dry grasses of August, the leaves of fall and the cold of winter with the comfort of the first blanket of snow. All this will come out of the Master Flask. So, it will be almost impossible to buy the same Cambienne twice because as people buy it, it will change as we add ingredients throughout the year.
Cambienne is only sold in 6 ml bottles. There are no sample sizes of Cambienne.
