What Does Gentleman Reserve Privee Smell Like?
Gentleman Reserve Privee is a rich and boozy aroma with a gourmand feel. The top notes feel vibrant as the bergamot note lifts the uniquely heady whisky accord, which has been created using aromatic barley from a refined Scottish distillery. The heart notes add a bitterness using chestnut and a slight sweetness using floral orris to create a well-balanced aroma. The heart becomes warm and creamy thanks to benzoin, creating a sophisticated vanilla-like feel. The base adds a richness and an earthiness as cedarwood and patchouli blend with the smokiness of vetiver for a signature that feels both timeless and modern.
Top notes are Bergamot Essence, Whisky Absolute. Heart notes are Chestnut, Orris Concrete, Benzoin. Base notes are Cedarwood Essence, Vetiver Essence, Patchouli Essence.
Why It’s Escentual:
We’ve fallen in love with the intoxicating blend of notes that lace Gentleman Reserve Privee; created by master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Olivier Cresp, its whisky facet feels smooth, warm and just a little bit spicy as it’s nuanced by the more subtle fruity-floral elements. The rich woody notes continue to recall the concept of a fine Scottish whisky, making the heady fragrance feel like it’s been aged in an old, curved and splintering barrel. Gentleman Reserve Privee has a slightly gourmand tone lingering beneath the surface, making us think of moreish dark chocolate liqueurs whenever we breathe in this clever aroma!
Though marketed as a man’s fragrance, the creamy smooth scent is loved by everyone at Escentual, so we think it can undoubtedly be seen as a fragrance for all genders, especially the whisky-lovers amongst us.
