So many of the great chypres – all made with a blend of oakmoss, patchouli, bergamot and other deep naturals - have disappeared, too expensive or complex for today’s tastes. They’ve also been described as ‘too dirty’ for the US mass market (surely a good thing?). Here’s one inspired by the Paris masters - working in the late 1940s as their industry was able to start creating once again - with rich heart, a fruity top and a soul of pure oakmoss.

"Outstanding peach chypre. It is definitely made with love by Sarah McCartney. Classy but really easy to wear both day and night." - Nosyla

"This is a herbal, peachy chypre with hints of basil. It's an unusual scent but once I "got" it, I couldn't live without it. It has a wonderfully retro vibe and a mossy, woody finish. Paris 1948 is a gem, and you won't smell like everyone else on the bus! Unless you sit by me." - BettyNoir
