(Eau de parfum natural spray)
Grand Siècle in Eau de parfum concentration.
Top note: bergamot, bigarade, lemon leaves
Heart notes: mint, cypress absolute, tobacco, hay
Base notes: patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss, honey
The "bitter hesperidic" accord of our Cologne Grand Siècle is reinterpreted here to draw its bracing, biting freshness towards an Eau de Parfum concentration. In the top notes, the citrus mosaic is dominated by the essence of bitter orange and lemon tree leaves, boosted with aromatic cypress and mint for added strength and diffusiveness. Tobacco and hay subtly warms the heart of the fragrance sitting on a solid woodsy base with a soft finish of honey and oakmoss.
Concentrated at 22%.

Born in Clermont, Pierre Guillaume was a young 25-year-old chemist when he composed his first fragrance, COZÉ 02.
This “Spicy Tobacco” accord, inspired by the contents of a precious cigar case owned by his father, received critical acclaim from the fragrance blogosphere, which brought it to the attention of professional buyers all around the world.
After New York Times perfume critic Chandler Burr praised “the young French chemist who concocted the coolest new European fragrances”, marked the commercial debut of the Collection Parfumerie Generale by Pierre Guillaume.
In 2010, the perfumer founded Pierre Guillaume Diffusion and set up a production facility comprising a composition studio, a cellar for raw materials and a packaging line solely dedicated to manufacturing the fragrances conceived by Pierre Guillaume.
A second facility was inaugurated in 2015 to handle the company’s logistics.
Pierre Guillaume enjoys complete artistic and financial freedom to create his perfumes collection's in his own studios and workshops, under the brand Pierre Guillaume Paris.
