Chypre Palatin fragrance notes

Reviews of Chypre Palatin

Amber, aldehydes and galbanum opening-green almond to start with, heavy creamy green with very light projection. The opening is the best part, very promising. However, the opening dries down very quickly to a semi-sweet-floral backdrop, heavy iris and light lavender mixes well with Chypre Palatin. It's finely crafted but very tame. After about ten minutes, you get the creaminess from aldehydes and vanilla and tonka. It becomes sweeter during the drydown. It's all very....average. Not challenging and not really in any way engaging. And it becomes a skin scent almost instantly, which is rather infuriating given the strong start.

What's more, this is very expensive: hundreds of dollars for 100 ML. Completely not worth it to me. This isn't a particularly masculine fragrance, I'm not sure why it isn't marketed as unisex.

I could give this a neutral, but really for the price: save your money. A very middling chypre with a very extravagant price-tag. For this much money, I expect something much more special.

A weary beast

Chypre Palatin is surprisingly tame, given the reviews I have read. In fact, I was expecting something positively beastly. But if we are to call it that, this beast is tired and neutered, like a weary circus lion who can no longer be goaded into jumping through rings of fire.

Chypre Palatin’s architectural opening is promising, leaping out all bright and bitter greens and chic aldehydic edges. This is fleshed out nicely when blooming florals join the scene. But already I find it somewhat weak in projection. I would say this is the best stage of the fragrance and it does not last long. Its depth and structure rapidly fades until it dries down into something sweet, ambery and powdery within the hour. It’s nice but I was hoping for something far more challenging, especially with the notes pyramid. Shadowy green depth, sweaty leather, territorial musks, I don’t know, something other than vanillaic fluff. If I sniff very close to my wrist, I sometimes detect a hint of something a little animalic, but to be honest, I don’t know if I’m just deluding myself with the hope of experiencing something more.

Not Duchaufour's best.

Quality Amber heavy and Oakmoss light. The Florals are hazed.
The opening has the impressive Citric attachment to the requisite Costus,Labdanum and carries along this edge for a little while.
Then falls into a trap of collapsing the buttery Oakmoss and misses it's Savon.
Better to find a Ruthless Chypre Floral like Aromatics Elixir to quench the thirst.

All chypres call my name, and this one in particular has a gorgeous angularly-green opening that draws me in and holds me tight for approximately 10 minutes. Then, unfortunately, the whole thing collapses like a flattened souffle, and the fun is over. The rest is simply too abstractly floral and powdery for me to appreciate, especially after that glorious beginning. Perhaps if it hadn't begun with such flair. Perhaps if the greenery weren't so attenuated. Perhaps if the majority of its scent-life weren't so "vanilla" and humdrum.

It's a nice floral with a vintage/old feel. I'd say it's on the masculine side but can be truly unisex. I don't know chypre well, but I guess it's what gives me the vintage feeling. I can't describe the notes, as they are too unknown and mixed together. But the whole fragrance is very pleasant, and full of character. It might be worth a full bottle, or a sample if you don't know what a chypre is. Projection and longevity are great!

Parfums MDCI Chypre Palatin is a heavy chypre with a strong mix of lavender and labdanum in the opening, giving it a sharp edge from the onset, the dry down giving way to a floral heart of iris, rose, and gardenia, and finally a hodgepodge of base notes, most of which I don't detect at all, the standouts of which for me are the oakmoss and castoreum, fostering a woody and animalic combination. I barely detect any sweetness at all that one might expect from vanilla or benzoin.

Chypre Palatin leans masculine, as one might expect, but it's unisex enough that women could enjoy it too---it has a classic-enough appeal for both genders.

It's a good performer, ideal for cold weather, as it might simply be too cloying in the summer heat. It projects very strongly for about an hour and then has modest projection for several hours thereafter.

A nice entry but one that doesn't quite fit in with my ideal type of chypre, so not one I'll be pursuing further.
