FORT & MANLÉ Charlatan 50ml
Grand beginnings. Green pastures abound.
Plans hatched, ideals, maps, goals, rose-tinted hue, utopian dreams…bliss.
Tables turned. Untruths awash. Snake oil, Jack’s beans, unattainable mirage.
Thread unravelling. Pandora’s box. Melancholic brood. Grey descent.
If I can’t have her…then no one will.
A floral gourmand pushed to the best of their extremes, Charlatan begins with the soft seductive sweetness of Pear dipped in Chocolate, teased with the earthy and titillating carnal severity of luscious black Perigord Truffle. This is moved into a blissful interlude of exotic, balmy florals with all of their delightful natural oiliness present: Damascene Rose, Jasmine from the spicy exotica of Morocco, and the leathery bounce of Osmanthus. This sinful symphony is enriched and saturated with Madagascan Vanilla Bean, spicy Sandalwood from West Australia and rounded out with Himalayan Amber.
Perfume Type: Floral Gourmand
Perfumer: Rasei Fort
Fort & Manle is a Maison de Parfum whose philosophy is to continually create individualistic, eclectic and often eccentric handcrafted, luxury perfume.
Fort & Manle is an independent, artisanal perfume house which is founded and wholly owned by the perfumer himself, Rasei Fort.
In an attempt to strive for scent perfection, using predominantly the most refined and exquisite naturals, botanicals and absolutes, Rasei aims to transport the user, whisking them away on a sumptuous, olfactive journey to the most exotic locales on the planet, to be truly enveloped by naturally authentic and vivid scent.
Not being deterred by the exorbitant costs of the finest natural raw materials, at Fort & Manle, we adhere to using the most refined and precious natural extracts rather than substituting them with inexpensive and artificial, synthetic molecules, which have become so prevalent within the industry.
Obsessive in his approach, Rasei meticulously blends artisanal oils, extracts and the finest Oudh in existence. The results speak for itself, truly enhancing the fragrance, coupled with sprinklings of the most effective aroma molecules.
As a self-taught perfumer, Rasei Fort continually references history and varied cultures, including his own rich, Turkish heritage by scouring the world for the finest raw materials and combining them with his inspirations, evoking the pomp and pageantry of the Empires of old.
This has resulted in the creation of luxurious compositions which combine the modern with 'Old-World' sensibilities.
Please note: Due to the nature of the natural raw materials used in our fragrances, the perfumes may vary slightly between batches.
