Eau de Parfum (woody, oriental). Bruno Jovanovich, in this first perfume signed under his name, takes on patchouli, a symbol of classic perfumery. Monsieur, through its unique dosage (over 50% of patchouli obtained by molecular distillation) is to patchouli whar Carnal Flower is to tuberose.
Eau de Parfum (woody). Nose in the soil, buried in the undergrowth, stirring smells of roots and fungus. Damp soil scented with wilted flowers, burrowing animals and changing seasons. Planted deep within Mother Earth, the tree draws its strength from the nutrient-providing decaying matter of humus.
