Chypre du Nord is a classically inspired fragrance embracing the finest traditions of European perfumery and reviving the majesty of a long-established style of fragrance. The chypre scent originated in France in the early 20th Century and in Chypre du Nord perfumer Dmitry Bortnikoff has brought his own unique and inimitable touch to the style.
Opening with bright bergamot and succulent orange notes, the scent transitions to reveal the juicy sweetness of peach and the spiciness of nutmeg in its heart. In the base of the composition the truly unique and precious elements of the perfume make themselves apparent. Real oakmoss has always been one of the quintessential ingredients of the chypre scent and here it makes its unmistakable presence felt. Resinous and sweet benzoin mingles with tonka bean and birch tar to produce a smooth and sensuous aura. Finally, rare and scarce Siberian deer musk imparts its magical quality to round out this enchanting creation.
Whilst the chypre is a traditional and very common style of fragrance, the specially cultivated ingredients used in Bortnikoff scents mean that Chypre du Nord has a depth of complexity and sophistication that is seldom found elsewhere. The rich extrait de parfum concentration ensures an enduring and evolving experience for the wearer and allows the beauty of the perfume to be fully appreciated.
This unisex creation can be enjoyed in all season and on all occasions.
Allow yourself to be surrounded in a veil of beauty and refinement with this unforgettable perfume.
