Monsieur Lanvin


The opening with vetiver and lavender is very traditional and well executed, with a somewhat boozy component. 


The middle notes start with hints of clary sage and then very green, grassy and herbal notes, with in the later stages elements of cardamom and cinnamon making appearances. 


In the base woodsy notes, including cedar and whiffs of sandalwood, are present. 


Good silage and projection, with a monster longevity of up to twelve hours.  


Its simplicity hides the supreme beauty and richness of each stage, the glowing warmth of the middle phase, the amazing quality of the ingredients and how very well and smoothly it is blended without losing structure.  A wonderful autumnal scent, one of Lanvin's finest.  4.25/5
