A unisex, spicy chypre taking inspiration from French vintage perfumes . Rich, slightly oily in personality, yet sparkling with non sweet fruit accord, woods and moss . A full bodied aroma with longevity and some sillage .
It should have broad appeal to the modern perfume connoisseur -man and woman .
Texture and Personality
Smooth, silky but with an edge like Thai silk – grains of something a little rough running though it would make it more interesting.
A round ball of golden Thai silk, soft yet durable. Distinctive, slightly broody and classy .Passionate and strong yet chic . Think Ava Gardner and Charlie Chaplin, Dean Martin, John Kennedy , Jean Harlow. A classic style fragrance that will not be forgotten when smelt on a wearer . Romantic ,poetic ,reminiscent of a golden age yet totally wearable in the new Millenium by both sexes of discriminating taste in perfume, wine, food and lifestyle.
Taking inspiration from complex vintage perfumes of the Guerlain and maybe also the Caron type- it should open a little bracing, crisp, fresh and develop into a full bodied ,slightly creamy ,slightly sweet aroma right to the drydown .
Accords for consideration and inspiration
Lemon, Bergamot, Heliotrope, Almond , Apricot, Pear, Peach, Plum, Rose, Violet, Anise, Cinnamon, Woody notes, oakmoss ( yes ! please ), treemoss, musk, patchouli, honey, vanilla, ambergris ,white amber notes.
