January 1837, St. Petersburg, Russia:

On a frosty winter afternoon, a fiery gentleman finishes his toilette by dabbing on a preparation of Neroli and Violet. He draws down his cuffs, dons a heavy fur and strides out in polished leather boots. As he rides off on his sledge, the woody scent of Fir fills the air. Beyond the snow-laden trees, on a clearing bathed in amber light, his fateful duel awaits.

Head notes: Neroli, Aldehydes, Iced Vodka accord & Birch leaves

Heart notes: Violet leaf, Orris, Cognac and Leather

Base notes: Fir balsam, Birch tar, Moss and Animalic Musk accord.

"In essence, Aleksandr is a perfume that takes you through the day of the duel: from the gentleman’s toilette before leaving the house, on to a sleigh-ride through the cold winter chill into the heady forests of birches and firs…It is a perfume that warms up from a refreshing violet leaf to a woody, leathery amber. It travels, like a bullet in the air, from a cold exterior to a warm heart. ” - Carlos Huber

Developed in conjunction with Yann Vasnier
