A classic vintage floral, peach, woody scent, inspired by the great French chypres of the 1940s.
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.
