1978. A leathery chypre scent that harkens back to when masculine traits like hairy chests and holding the door open for a lady were the norm. I call this a "nuzzling scent" because it makes you want to nuzzle up a bit longer with your man when you smell it while kissing him.
Black molded glass bottle in an Art Deco style. A 7 ml. sized bottle, I estimate this to be about 35-40% full, just from shaking it. The glass is opaque, so I have no way of knowing for certain. It has a rich, deep scent described by Van Cleef and Arpels "The fresh aromatic opening includes the notes of basil, bergamot, green notes, juniper berries, marjoram, thyme, and lavender. The heart is warm and even hot, featuring woody notes of Guaiac, patchouli, and vetiver, tender floral and sensual spices. Dark and mysterious, masculine base notes are composed of amber, castoreum, smoky incense, dark leather, oak moss, and musk". This masculine scent was created by Louis Monnet in 1978.
This classical leather scent for men appeared at the time when ultimate intensive chypre and masculine leather fragrances were very popular. It became a synonym for classical men's elegance in the world of fragrances. Collectible, travel-size bottle for the man on the go. We combine shipping, so check out our other listings.
