My husband was given a tester of this fragrance on a recent trip to a L’Ocitane store. Although it may be classed as old fashioned by some, both my husband and I were completely smitten with this fragrance. We were told that it has a medieval legend influence. For those that are interested it is said that the Knights of Les Baux have chosen cypress as symbol of strength and courage. Apparently this fragrance is inspired by this legend. We have to say, for us this is a very sexy and VERY masculine fragrance. When first applied it is quite strong and has a peppery tobacco, leather accord. Quickly you can detect the middle notes of cypress (hard to describe) and incense which is a quite exotic smoky mix. The dry down is vanilla and Tonka bean and all the way through there are strong wood notes. The dry down is lovely! It settles to more of the vanilla with a hint of woods and spice and the longevity is excellent!
This may not be classed as a modern fragrance but if you like your man to be ‘a man’ this is a very strong statement scent. The bottle is long lasting and excellent value. This is a very masculine, sexy, smoky fragrance which we can highly recommend
