The scent is a tribute to `The Professor` Jerry Thomas, the first celebrity bartender and wrote the original guide to bartending: The Bar-Tender`s Guide, alternatively titled How to Mix Drinks or the Bon Vivant`s Companion. He had a famous stint at the original Planter`s House Hotel in St. Louis and gained notoriety for a drink that was set aflame, then tossed through the air, back and forth between two mugs.
Chatillon Lux created Bon Vivant as tribute to Jerry Thomas, inspired by a whiskey drink with chartreuse and orange bitters. The scent itself is spicy and warm with a twist of citrus on the top. The notes include caramel, birch tar, black pepper, maple syrup, vanilla, patchouli, neroli, petitgrain, yuzu citrus, ginger, anise, juniper berry, white grapefruit, wormwood and coriander.
