This cologne is relatively easy to be purchased in Italy nearby some tobacconist's shops. It's an old style chypre cologne based on a traditional chord of citrus, vetiver and tobacco together with greens, patchouli, oakmoss and woods. The smell is surprisingly natural and clean, with its bracing but smoky temperament and with all the freshness of citruses that evolves towards a woodsy base with a dominant note of vetiver. I think some bergamot and cedar are comprised in the blend.The smell is airy, lemony, grassy and barber-shop possessing a special kind of bitterness made of tobacco e, herbs and dry patchouli. The mildness is mainly made of woods, sweet tobacco, citrus and some final smoothing touch of balsams. Not bad at all.

Very nice. Lovely citrus. Lemon balm and not much else.
This doesn't seem to be discontinued. Search for it on ebay Italy and Germany.

This cologne is a traditionalist's dream with its fresh citrus layering. Does anyone know where I can still purchase a bottle?
A pleasant, traditional, rather distiguished citrus-based cologne from the little known House of Morris. Its opening is clean, fresh and pure. The development unfolds in much the same vein, although tempered with woods. Some may find it delicate to the point of faint and fleeting. Never cheap-smelling, traditionalists may apply liberally and enjoy quietly. In many ways, a superior eau de cologne sort of smell.
