This fragrance is dedicated to a young Frenchman who was born and educated in Australia, who hasnow returned to Europe. Alexis Comte de Vienne inherited his title when still a boy following the premature death of his father Patrick de Vienne.
For centuries the family had embodied a naval and seafaring tradition, being involved in the battle of Trafalgar and other historic naval engagements and part of the family crest is reproduced on the elegant black flacon. Patrick participated in and won the historic yacht race from San Francisco to Tahiti before settling in Australia where he bred horses.
The fragrance, an Eau de Toilette, has classic headnotes of bergamot, orange and grapefruit. Its elegant heart comprises patchouli with a hint of geranium and the aristocratic and classic finish contains cedarwood, musk, vetiver and oak moss with a hint of benzoin.
