From left to right: Courage, Valour & Fortitude in the 250 ml Decanter Versions
American fashion label Robert Graham Est. 2001 have launched a trio of men's perfumes in their Blended Essences collection called Courage, Valour, and Fortitude...
This exclusively masculine scent library for now is inspired by the notions of a liqueur bar and aged alcohol, as well as virile virtues. The fragrances were named "blended essences" to avoid using the classic edp and edt denominations.
"Instead of creating the expected Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum fragrance, master perfumers have blended the finest raw ingredients at their optimal levels to create a whole new category. These blended essences are the product of a singular blending and aging process that yield a flight of rich and expressive scents."
"Robert Graham Courage. A smooth top note of classic Vodka Citron merges with fresh Bergamot and is finished with subtle Smoky Guaiac Wood. The Pilote de Course cap was inspired by the original bust created in the 1920s by legendary sculptor Francois Pimienta."
"Robert Graham Valour. Walks the line between fresh and sybaritic, mixing top notes including Clary Sage, Coffee Santos and Amber Wood. The English bulldog cap wears a hand-painted purple bow tie representing the staunch, steadfast and spirted nature of the bulldog."
The 100 ml version
"Robert Graham Fortitude. Deep, rich and almost mystical, born of alchemy and the exotic, Robert Graham Fortitude has an overly sensual top note of Tobacco Absolute with secondary notes of Patchouli and Tonka Bean. The horned ram's head cap features green Swarovski crystal eyes, and a steampunk gear base."
The blends are available in 250 ml decanters and 100 ml bottles for $295 and $125 respectively at Bloomingdale's and Robert Graham's
