Eau de Parfum
Dannielle Sergent - Cognoscenti
Dannielle: Civet Chypre is a dirty floral with a heady mix of powerful flowers (neroli, ylang ylang and rose) and the deeply mysterious civet. The blend of neroli and bergamot at the top opens the door, letting in the luxurious animal, slinky, sexy and a bit naughty. The proud beast marks his territory around the room and stays, lying among the flowers. This is an irreverent fragrance with a soft side, modern and classic at the same time. It is primal and supremely elegant. Worn by bad boys in floral cravats, surprisingly chic woman holding court in the catacombs of Paris and those who dare to challenge the concept of floral fragrances.
Dave: A classic chypre unfurls arounds a centerpiece of floral, mossy civet. Opening with the creamy, green citrus of neroli & bergamot, and finishing on warm amber and musk, everything is in harmony with the animalic accord at its heart. Smart and sexy.
No. 17 Civet Chypre Notes: Neroli, bergamot, ylang ylang, rose, civet accord, oakmoss, amber and musk.
