Molinard also released this year another chypre perfume called Chypre d'Orient but in a less prestigious collection. It would be interesting to compare them.
According to the press release/ad copy,
"Histoire de Chypre is an olfactive ode to chypre in all of her fascinating glory; her aromatic corset unlaced in refreshing notes of Bergamot, Mandarin, Neroli, Jasmine and Galbanum, the vulnerable secrets of her heart expressed in Jasmine, Bulgarian Rose, Osmanthus and precious Iris, the demure tendrils of her timeless spirit resonating in Patchouli, Oakmoss, Musk and Amber. No expense was spared in creating Histoire de Chypre, a fragrance which was fashioned from an original Molinard chypre formula dating back to the twenties. “We have kept the "heritage/spirit" of this fragrance using the finest raw materials and ingredients,” Camilli says, “A quality one does not encounter often in modern perfumery.”
The eau de parfum retails 3.3 oz for $225, only at Aedes. A sample program is available but slower than usual during the Holidays.
