French niche line Phaedon has launched Poivre Colonial, a new spicy woods fragrance.
Both prickly and smooth, this ethereal wood opens with an explosive blend of grapefruit, nutmeg and peppercorns. The heart notes are suffused with a vapour of cedar and vetiver, mixed with warm, animalic cocoa beans. The base notes are dominated by oak moss oabsolute [sic] and patchouli tinged with blond wood, suave, deep and persistent.
Phaedon Poivre Colonial is available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette, €85.
