Collection: Chypre

The classic Chypre note is a mix of bergamot, jasmine, rose, patchouli, tree moss, labdanum and some animal notes. This olfactive family can be associated with different facets, but a chypre fragrance is by definition always woody.

In contemporary chypre fragrances, oak moss and labdanum cistus have been replaced by patchouli following IFRA's ban on the use of these materials.

Chypre scents are fragrances with character. Their top and heart notes are rather discreet but then their base notes are intense. These fragrances are ideal for charismatic and original personalities who wants to wear unique scents.
