A holiday Chypre in the vintage-style of bygone years. This Nouveau Vintage fragrance takes inspiration from the legendary Chypres of the 1920s. This modern recreation includes a long list of essential oils, absolutes, extracts & tinctures. This holiday-inspired fragrance opens with a bright spiced orange, bayberry and heady bergamot. An historically correct house recreation of the Mousse de Saxe accord swells to add a dry mossy vintage warmth & complexity. The heart blooms with jasmine & rose absolutes, but decadent tuberose is the star of this show. The drydown reveals soft woody tones of sandalwood, amber, leather, vanilla, civet, deer musk & white ambergris. This fragrance smells unapologetically vintage and very unisex. This is not for everyone, but to those who appreciate vintage chypres, this is something very special indeed!

DID YOU KNOW?
Natural Perfume may appear slightly cloudy at times or particulate may be visible floating in the bottle. This is normal for perfumes containing high quantities of natural resins & waxes. I filter my natural perfumes multiple times before bottling, but due to changes in temperature & aging, a small amount of sediment may appear over time. This does not negatively affect the performance of the perfume. In fact, these natural waxes & resins are highly scented aromatic materials that will melt into your skin when applied, giving the perfume an enhanced richness & longevity. Enjoy!
