NO 56, PARFUM - ANIMAL NOTES, YLANG-YLANG & AOUD

£495.00

GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE

CHYPRÉ - Warm & Dry
Fresh, Sweet, Spicy, & Sensual

Where two styles of Perfumery converge in one place is where you find Number 56 – a perfume that pays homage to two traditions of the craft and writes them into one bold new future. A classical Aoud blend begins the story, where the iconic trio of Rose, Saffron and Aoud take you to the magic of the Middle East. But this is turned on its head as a traditional Oakmoss-based Chypré structure dances out from underneath and evokes the art-deco hedonism of 1920s Manhattan. Lively Litsea Cubeba and Black Pepper add excitement and optimism to this partnership of two distinct perfumery styles which have been mastered by the perfumer throughout his career. Working in perfect harmony, this is a creation of contrasts that results in a respectful ode to perfumery’s past, whilst similarly presenting something that pioneers the way into the future.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Litsea Cubeba, Lavender

Heart Notes: Geranium, Rose de Mai, Ylang Ylang, Violet

Base Notes: Caraway, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Pepper, Saffron, Patchouli, Oakmoss, Casmir Wood, Sandalwood, Aoud, Benzoin, Vanilla, Orris, Opoponax, Labdanum, Leather, Musk
