Jamie Frater, Perfumer & Creative Director:
Lavender Barrême, considered the finest of all lavenders, became all but extinct in the perfume world due to its high cost and scarcity. Now it returns as the key note in Porthos, a remarkable unisex scent at the edge of unsavoury.
This fragrance was Inspired by the wild adventures of Porthos (Baron du Vallon de Bracieux de Pierrefonds) from Alexandre Dumas's Three Musketeers, Porthos manages to be both refreshing and musky at the same time. It is powerful, eccentric and profoundly sweet through an excess of heliotrope which represents the French sun under which du Vallon lived and loved.
