About the product:
For the man who would not normally wear perfume, who believes in naked attraction and relies on the simple seductive power of his rugged appearance. The spicy freshness of pimiento, angelica and juniper flowers melts into a woody sea of cedar, patchouli and vetiver, bound by galbanum and frankincense in a mysterious enhancement of men’s natural scent.
Top: Pimiento, angelica, juniper
Base: Patchouli, vetiver, frankincense
About the perfumer:
Pierre Bourdon earned a degree in political science before changing directions and enrolling in the Roure Bertrand Dupont school in Grasse. He then became the only protégé of celebrated perfumer Edmond Roudnitska. His professional career began at Roure in Paris in the late 70's. In the 1980s, he revolutionized perfume trends with his men's fragrance "Cool Water" for Davidoff. Today, Bourdon is considered one of the most innovative perfumers of his generation.
