Multi-faceted and a lover of art and design, the HOMME Parfum man is a curious traveller and explorer with an innate passion for beauty. In a continuous search for excellence he expresses his own style and choices; sonic like a silk velvet jacket, an ageless affirmation of the highest quality. A sophisticated and premium blend of natural, rare elements – most of which are created by the prestigious LMR* laboratory in Grasse – concentrated as an extrait de parfum. The freshness of the citrus notes of grapefruit and bergamot oil combine in perfect harmony with the spicy extract of the LMR* cardamom. In the heart, the essence combines the intensity of the LMR* cinnamon with the extract of a trio of different types of LMR* vetiver and mellows it with the delicate notes of the LMR* patchouli oil. A woody cocktail of musk, sandal and LMR* cistus labdanum accentuates the depth of the fragrance, creating a harmonious warm accent right through the base notes. This is an authentic celebration of the eclectic soul of the modern man.
* The Laboratoire Monique Remy in Grasse specialises in creating premium natural extracts that adopt rare production processes and patented extraction techniques to produce the highest quality on the market.

Distinctive note: Vetiver extract
Smell: Dried and woody with hints of liquorice and ginger.
Origin: the vetiver is a native plant of India, well known to the population since the time of the Vedas. In fact, vetiver was used in medicine due to its numerous benefits. In mythology, it was considered to be an herb with beneficial properties that could remove negative energy, whilst its fragrance was believed to be capable of driving evil spirits away. It was precisely for this reason that vetiver roots used to be woven together with carpet yarns and employed when building thatched huts. It plays a key role as a base note in perfumery and is one of the rare fixative essences extracted from the plant world.
Extraction: Steam distillation of the roots.
