The right perfume is a good way to non-verbally and non-visually declare yourself to others. A good scent can say a lot about the owner, as well as a bad one. The search for the new has led us to a real classic: tested by the changing passions of the public and time. Some timeless fragrances are still in production today, confirming the popular phrase about things that are out of fashion.
Santa Maria Novella Patchouli
The Italian monastery Santa Maria Novella launched its first perfumery products back in the 17th century. And now the manufactory remains in Florence, where each fragrance is bottled and sealed by hand. The most famous are the perfumes created for Catherine de Medici, but Novella Patchouli is a worthy alternative to him. Like vetiver and sandalwood, patchouli aromas become more tart and impressive with age.
Acqua Di Parma Colonia
The Italian manufactory Acqua Di Parma has glorified the classic scent preferred by Italian gentlemen. Commercial success came to perfumers after the same scent caught on to actresses such as Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. Acqua Di Parma Colonia has a strong association with the fresh air of the Mediterranean. Here, dominant citrus fruits are mixed with herbal notes of rosemary, lavender and verbena, creating a recognizable and dignified imprint of the owner.
No other ingredient has penetrated as deeply into men's perfumery around the world as vetiver. The homeland of the plant is India, but at the moment most of the plantations have been transferred to Haiti. Proper processing of vetiver oil deepens and expands its herbaceous, musky scent. The house Guerlain made the perfect interpretation: it was he who became the standard of the correct use of vetiver for all other brands. The fragrance entered the scene back in the 50s of the last century. It was preferred by such recognized gentlemen as John Fitzgerald Kennedy by the entire Liverpool Four.
Dior Eau Sauvage
This fragrance was created by the company in 1966 in collaboration with perfumer Edmont Rudnitsky. To this day, Eau Sauvage remains a true titanium of classic men's fashion. This is the smell that Alain Delon, for example, could wear during the filming of Mellville's noir Le Samourai. In the upper register of the spectrum - notes of bitter citrus, with a scent of subtle spice. Dior Eau Sauvage creates an impressive image for the owner: a person who has gone through a lot and is going to do at least the same amount.
Old Spice Сlassic
Old Spice launched a line of iconic perfumes in 1938 - when the head of the shop, Albert Hock, made the brand's first original scent. At its heart is cinnamon, vanilla and musk.
