A classic Chypre in the vintage-style of bygone years. This Nouveau Vintage fragrance takes inspiration from the legendary Chypres of the 1920s. This modern recreation contains over 60 individual essential oils, absolutes, extracts & tinctures. Chypre No.1 opens with a bright blast of candied citrus. Immediately spices & aromatic herbs begin to add warmth & complexity. Discreet floral notes of jasmine & rose absolutes swell to round out the composition and to create a truly unisex heart. The drydown reveals natural absolutes of Labdanum, Oakmoss, artisanal tinctures of Vanilla Bean & Tonka Bean and ethically-sourced civet, deer musk & white ambergris tinctures. Step back in time to experience the decadence of this Golden Age of Perfumery. A bit of history in a bottle.
