A Powerful Talisman
A bright and contemporary interpretation of the classic chypre, Golden Chypre conjures up images of autumn sunlight shimmering on golden leaves. Simultaneously warm and cool, this fragrance glows on skin; like a yellow diamond, Golden Chypre is a familiar form that is surprisingly distinctive. Cardamom and nutmeg collaborate, creating a crisp, warming air of spice. As cardamom and nutmeg sweep across our palate, they unleash a ripe, gorgeous cornucopia; tangy, zesty and subtly sweet, the tart fruits that populate the top of Golden Chypre are bright, refreshing reminders of the multifaceted, rare power of citrus to both refresh and comfort. Slowly, the piquant top of Golden Chypre gives way to the elegant heart of this fragrance. Sculpted from the supple, satin-smooth contours of rose, the searing, citric intensity of geranium and the rich, slightly gourmand dimensions of heliotrope, the core of this scent is richly romantic, yet utterly refined. In an effort to unify and sure up the beautiful balance that defines this fragrance, patchouli reinforces the vibrant opening, while its warm, earthy quality compliments the headier tones of the heart. A dry, smoky vetiver leads seamlessly into a sensual base of woods, amber, and musk. An invigorating investigation of a classic, Golden Chypre maintains the characteristic, velveteen charm of this category while it amplifies the sophistication and mystery inherent to this self same scented genre. A polished, magnificent and delightfully enigmatic fragrance, Golden Chypre is a powerful talisman, pulling all under its sway.
