    Default Escrimeur by Detaille

    Today I wore a sample of Escrimeur by the little known Parisian perfume house called Detaille.

    Starts off light citrussy which then blends into a lovely rosemary and lavender harmony. The drydown is a classic and traditional blend of vetiver, cedar and sandalwood.

    Any other fans of Escrimeur?

    Yes I like it very much. This and Aeroplane are the best of the Detaille range IMO. Nothing groundbreaking but good quality classics.

    Must try that. I liked Aeroplane a lot, while Par 4 was very strange and cloying.

    Detaille is very under appreciated. Never sniffed Par4, but I have had a sample of Aeroplane and one other. Going to look for them in my sample box.

    I really like Escrimeur, and bought it years ago at Takashimaya when they were still in New York. I had heard Detaille had closed down, but hopefully that is not the case. I have wanted to buy Escrimeur, but it seems to be impossible to find in the US. Other than directly from Detaille, where can one buy this line? Thanks, gents.

    I think it's only available direct from Detaille. Yes, they are still in business in Ste Lazare in Paris.

    Thank you Prince Barry, based upon this, I went on line and ordered the sample set of mens' fragrances directly from Detaille. As I recall Ecrimeur was a very "bottle worthy" fragrance. Will also enjoy the others especially Par 4, being an avid golfer who's enjoyed Creeds Green Valley in the past.

    A "little birdy" tells me that Detaille fragrances are going to make a welcome reappearance on these shores in the next few months. More when I get and try the samples from France.

    This past week, I received samples of all of the Detaille mens' fragrances. I will proceed to try them all and post reviews, especially those which have been entirely neglected thus far. I must say that at this point, Escrimeur (which is French for "fencer") is my favorite. It is a charmingly light woody vetiver. All of the Detaille except perhaps Milles are on the light side. More in due course.
