About Portraits : Monsieur Beauregard

“Our French friend” is how this unknown but over-familiar houseguest is typically introduced. His lingering gaze lets you know he’ll take things from here.

A special kind of perfection that with its strong caressing silence speaks volumes! Confidently quiet. Mysteriously sexy.

Be warned. One look is all it took.

Reviews of Portraits : Monsieur Beauregard

The orris root gives this a buttery, Valentino Uomo feel but Monsieur Beauregard is less powdery, sweeter and maybe more feminine but only to the point where women would want to wear this too because it smells really good and sexy. This is a solid masculine release that feels perfect for a night out on any night except maybe the hottest, most humid of days.

I get very good projection, especially in the 4-6 hour range where the woody-sweetness shines through. Total longevity lasts 12+ hours.

The initial opening blast starts with some lemon, which very soon develops into a sweetish cinnamon impression. In the drydown a sandalwood arises, which is rather synthetic and not very enticing on my skin.

Towards the base a vanilla sweetness is added to the cinnamon, and the whiffs of orris I get are only contributing minimally to the overall development of this creation.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

An autumnal scent that is quite creamy, but on me it is not heavy and quite on the less heavy side. Its synthetic nature is the main drawback here. 2.75/5.

On me, this mostly smells like butter, mixed with cinnamon and clove. It's essentially a rich, buttery Spicebomb, or for more seasoned perfumistas, an update of Miyake's discontinued cult favorite Le Feu d'Issey. Given time, as the butter fades, it makes room for sawdusty sandalwood while the spices continue.

In terms of writing an informative review, I'm kind of torn. On the positive side, the mix of butter, wood, and spices is well done. These types of scents often end up smelling like cheap Christmas potpourri, but Beauregard avoids that trap with the carefully crafted mix of butter and wood. However, on the negative side, I can't shake the feeling that this is influenced by (but shockingly simple when compared to) Serge Lutens. In total, I like Beauregard and appreciate its craftsmanship, but feel like there are more artful options out there for fans of this sort of thing.
