What Does Pirates' Grand Reserve Eau de Parfum Smell Like?
As you'd expect from this swashbuckling scent, Pirates' Grand Reserve opens with a sweet, just-spiced rum note that feels as though infused with exotic molasses. As rum is the drink of the pirate, it only seems right that this is the key note to wash over your senses, while hazy, almond-like heliotrope and heady jasmine infuse the opening with their hypnotic floral tones. These top notes make you feel like you've just washed up on a mystery island with only a few crates of rum to keep you warm at night. And if the top notes recall rum, then the heart mimics the oak barrel; soft cedarwood and aromatic geranium blend with warm, spicy and gourmand bean for a scent that feels like it has travelled a thousand miles to reach your nose. Finally, warm and sensual facets tease your senses in the base as cosy, creamy vanilla plays with earthy patchouli and seductive helvetolide.Top notes are Heliotrope, Jasmine Petals, Rum. Heart notes are Cedarwood, Geranium Essence, Cocoa Bean. Base notes are Vanilla, Patchouli, Helvetolide.
Why it’s Escentual:
Created by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, Pirates' Grand Reserve is the rich, adventurous brew of buccaneers. When first spritzed, it instantly recalls the life-threatening adventures of pirates sailing the seven seas, drinks in hand. And it features a potent trio of ingredients to do just that: fine cask rum, bitter cocoa bean and addictive vanilla pod, all of which blend for a signature that's both gorgeously gourmand and intoxicatingly heady - even the flacon looks like a hip flask smuggled on by a stowaway, although admittedly a more modern, elegant clear glass version.
Atkinsons' niche, unisex fragrance is undeniably powered by a swig of rum. Still, it also settles and softens beautifully to reveal a sensual, addictively gourmand side, thanks to cocoa bean and vanilla. The drizzle of chocolate and gloriously aged rum pays homage to English gentleman-pirate Sir Francis Drake, who sailed around the world under the flag of Queen Elizabeth I. As daring and romantic as the legendary explorer, Pirates' Grand Reserve puts an intoxicating spin on rum, resulting in a scent that you want to get drunk on. Utterly full-bodied and undeniably difficult to resist, this Eau de Parfum will make you give in and declare, "it's the pirate's life for me."
