GENDER: Masculine TYPE: Woody COLLECTION: Classic
Porthos, an eccentric scent on the edge of unsavoury, blends lavender Barrême (the finest and rarest of all the lavenders) with sweet heliotrope and the quiet growl of animalic musks. Aldehydes impart a mirthful sparkle whilst a touch of rose and fresh petitgrain add lift.
A juicy pineapple note adds a touch of quirkiness.
Creamy sandalwood, resinous labdanum and earthy patchouli meld with edible notes of natural vanilla and tonka bean for a fragrance that is soft, luscious, musky and eccentric.
Perfumer’s Notes: One for all and all for one
Lavender Barrême, considered the finest of all lavenders, became all but extinct in the perfume world due to its high cost and scarcity. Now it returns as the key note in Porthos, a remarkable unisex scent at the edge of unsavoury.
This fragrance was Inspired by the wild adventures of Porthos (Baron du Vallon de Bracieux de Pierrefonds) from Alexandre Dumas's Three Musketeers, Porthos manages to be both refreshing and musky at the same time. It is powerful, eccentric and profoundly sweet through an excess of heliotrope which represents the French sun under which du Vallon lived and loved.
Florals are lightly added to give interest to the fragrance without imparting an overly feminine quality. Natural French rose, mimosa and jasmine blend perfectly with the longer lasting notes of patchouli and sandalwood. Porthos is a classic fragrance for the now; Porthos is style, swagger and verve.
