"The Professor" Jerry Thomas was the first celebrity bartender and wrote the original guide to bartending: The Bar-Tender's Guide: How to Mix Drinks or the Bon Vivant's Companion. He had a famous stint at the original Planter's House Hotel in St. Louis and gained notoriety for a drink that was set aflame, then tossed through the air, back and forth between two mugs.

We created Bon Vivant as a tribute to Jerry Thomas inspired by a whiskey drink with chartreuse and orange bitters. The scent itself is spicy and warm with a twist of citrus on the top. It is completely unlike any other scent creation that we have made thus far, and we are very proud to release such a sharp divergence from our scent lineup.

Bon Vivant was born for the autumn season. The opening spritz is a bright, screechy birch flavoured caramel that is cough inducing but addictive, thankfully to the pepper, maple syrup and vanilla notes that follow in sequence. The possibility for the saccharine is avoided by the tempered range of citrus bitters and greenery that offers a tart, spicy warmth, not too removed from the comfort of a whiskey flask on a cool day, at least in mind. Inspiration for Bon Vivant might have been chartreuse and orange bitters, but this is a fragrance that captures the glory of fall and its essence, the foliage and its chromatic decay, the embrace and parting of the day, and the wholehearted shift of the mind and heart towards an upcoming season... A pure mood, a joy to wear and perfect for layering.
