    Default New release from MDCI - Cyphre Palatin...got it today

    G&G's

    Just got my sample set from MDCI Paris this morning. I just commend the folks at MDCI for being so courteous and attentive to all qsts presented to them before my purchase. So, I went with my very favorite Invasion Barbare, Peche Cardinal, Ambre Topkapi, Promesse de L'aube and then a yet to be released by the name of Cyphre Palatin. This last one is quite an intriguing little number as it seems to draw you in to witness its evolution from perfect civility to feral beast all in an instant. Or more correctly, a cooly elegant urban type that just happens to have a very well mannered pet puma, who they like to take on evening walks . Honestly, that is the image that comes to mind with Cyphre Palatin. I have asked Claude at MDCI about the notes for CP and also the designer. As of now , I can say if you like Kouros or Musc KK then Cyphre Palatin may just be your alley (cat).

    Edit:

    It's one of the best orientals I've ever smelled. Didn't think a fragrance this good could be made today.

    The notes look promising but I'm kinda wary of immortelle. To test list.

    I got this info from Claude at MDCI today :

    The creator is Bertrand Duchaufour , who has already done "la Belle Hélène"
    for us, and here are the main ingredients:

    Head notes: jacinth, clementine, aldehydes, ciste essence, galbanum essence
    thyme and lavander
    Heart notes, : rose, jasmin, iris concrète, prune, gardenia
    Base notes : benjamin, styrax, leather, vanilla, tolu, castoreum , costus,
    oakmoss, everlast absolute

    From what I could gather in his reply, CP will also be released as a masculine in the MDCI lineup. Also, I wore this again last night and thought it to be sensually breathtaking, compelling, wonderfully surefooted and with a upfront classic manner that finds nothing to be worried about in modern times. I never would have imagined ever liking such an aggressive fragrance that the last thing on earth could be described as a comfort scent. All in all, brave new departure by MDCI into the darker realm of perfume creation.

    Just purchased this as a blind buy and just received it. WOW this is an absolutely beautiful Chypre. Very vintage, Very elegant and very sophisticated. I need to spend more time with it but it has beautiful balance with a nice leathery not floating to tam down the floral aspects which are there. I believe this is the best MDCI to date. I am very impressed.

    This could be up your ally Beck! Its worth a try at least.

    cairomerta, thanks for your input. This certainly sounds worth a try.

    How do you feel about Invasion Barbare? That will help us gauge how you really feel about Chypre Palatin if it's your favorite MDCI to date.

    Thanks Hobbes. I actually really like Invasion Barbare. This scent follows the same pattern of the previous scents. Really strong and quality openings leading to dry-downs that dont have enormous sillage but create a really elegant aura. What I particularly like about this scent is the vintage style throwback feel of it. Its oakmoss base is very prevalent giving it that dry almost powdery feeling. Not baby powder powdery but oakmoss/mossy powder. Really nice stuff.

    I was hoping Chypre Palatin would be to masculine chypres what Invasion Barbare is to fougeres. I'm definitely going to procure a sample of this one sometime soon.

    Also, thank you to stanmar, cairomerta, and persolaise for posting your thoughts on this. There is a real lack of reviews of Chypre Palatin right now. To date, besides this thread I can only find a review on Persolaise's site. There is really nothing out there on this.

    I'm thinking this might be up my ally also. Luckyscent sent two samples in the mail to me yesterday. If all goes well, I'll be giving Chypre Palatin a sampling this time tomorrow.

    This is a HUGE winner. The absolute best interpretation of "The Modern Man," bar none. I don't get anything remotely vintage as others have mentioned. This scent is so sophistcated, so modern and fresh in its execution - it's off the charts. Chypre Palatin can be worn any where, for any occaision. All you signature scent hunters - this is it - of course you'll need a bottle of Invasion Barbare just to make it a little more interesting. CP does everthing right, and nothing wrong.

    I will be buying a bottle tomorrow.

    I knew this would be right up your alley beck! I'm glad you like it as much as I do although I am one of the ones who do get a vintage vibe from it. Although I do agree on you modern assessment. Really a classy piece of work.

    My wife and I both sampled CP yesterday. I asked her if she thought there was anything vintage, and her answer was no. We'll probably be the only two that feel that way, since many others like yourself get that vintage thing. Maybe I'll feel different after some more wearings.

    Hey Nersh - I'm not sure what to compare it to - it's unique and new to my nose.

    Then I guess I will make a third... I am wearing it now, and I really am not getting a vintage vibe at all. Instead I too find it a quite modern take on the chypre. It is quite powdery and pleasant smelling, but I guess I just am hard to impress and pretty set in my ways taste-wise nowadays, as I like it but don't love it. I would prefer less powder and more oakmoss (the latter is probably not doable anymore, in all fairness). In short, I guess I wish it *were* more old school. All that said, it is certainly a quality scent that I understand the love others have for it. Good stuff, but just not for me.

    I find this to be the most friendly MDCI to date. It definitely has a chypre feel and a sensuous green/woody accord I could probably live with. I'm wondering if those of you who bought it are still enjoying it.

    It seems to have nice sillage and wafts beautifully.
