Monsieur. - Eau de Parfum

Bruno Jovanovic, in this first perfume signed under his name, took on a symbol of classic perfumery, patchouli, an emblematic material for many perfumers. Monsieur. through its unique dosage (over 50% of patchouli obtained by molecular distillation) is to patchouli what Carnal Flower is to tuberose.
The perfumer endeavored to purify this material in the extreme to turn it into the key link in the evaporation chain: The initial tangerine notes convey a particular freshness. These top notes mingle with the enigmatic and syrupy character of rum absolute, a link with the sea of patchouli that lies at the heart of the perfume. A substantial measure of cedar and of incense endow the latter with a sensuous and mystical vibration, while touches of modern amber confer a darker side to it. Hints of vanilla and musk tie everything together and soften the sharpness, to tame this brute into a sensuous, magnetic and nonetheless civilized animal!
No one had dared use patchouli in such a pure form since the 70s. Monsieur., a neo-classic perfume, far from fleeting fashions.
