Eternal Gentleman By Samuel Akata
Who is the Eternal Gentleman?
For you of course, alighted Parisian or other, eventually a bit dandy, comfortable in all circumstances and in all environments, traveler by choice or circumstance, aware of social events, captured by elegance without pretense and a welcoming appeal.
Ladies, please do not feel excluded as you do have your place for you will find in this range of fragrances not only something to please the man in your thoughts but also to satisfy your own desires and stimulate your curiosity.
This fragrance collection will never be forgotten and leave a undiluted memory for those who wear it perfect for this Christmas season and beyond.
(like Eternal Gentleman) is for the businessman, a handsome man who travels incessantly between Paris and Hong-Kong, and who makes Manhattan as his predilection den. Investor in all that succeeds in the light of his knowledge and perseverance and whose well-cut suit, never creased in spite of his numerous stays in the first classes of air planes, strikes the imagination of his collaborators.
Lord of the Chic
Well suited to a bowtie, a waistcoat, fashionable polished shoes, accompany the wardrobe of a man to be found in all worldly ceremonies. Its scent transports you into a world of lightness and refinement where verve and wit can shine at its best.
Exudes a somewhat malefic atmosphere all the while remaining attractive and exiting. The heady oriental smells impregnate its intoxicating atmosphere, a touch exhilarating and even bewildering, yet oh so captivating.
Peace of my Heart
Offers a fresh and light smell, the perfect companion for a stole on l’Ile Saint-Louis, this little paradise in the protective shadow of Notre-Dame, in the heart of Paris. Beauty of the site, admirable panorama from St.Louis Bridge, boats and “Bateaux-mouches” full of enthusiastic tourists with communicative “bonjours”, street artists and jugglers giving fun to the relaxed assistance savouring the so famous and delicious Berthillon ice creams, all of that is evoqued in the fragrance of this charming perfume.
Refers to the people that it can be dangerous to befriend, one also sees its supreme elegance. This fragrance is rendered particularly exiting by the newness of its approach. Still yet dominating, it provides, through its transgression of taboos and the slight vertigo it arouses, a unique sensation once it touches one’s skin.
A niche fragrance range that weaves a narrative from mislaid memories, childhood dreams and long-forgotten hope; STORIES Parfums ® is a pilgrimage for the senses. The moment I was introduced to Stories Parfums it took me on a sensory journey of notes; clean, soft and elegant describes this luxurious brand.
Creative Director & Founder of the perfume house, Tonya Kidd-Beggs, curated each blend personally as a testament to the power of fragrance in her own life. Grasse, on the French Riviera, has a long-established fragrance history dating back to the 17th century. It was here that Tonya developed her first two perfumes, STORIES Nº. 01 and STORIES Nº. 02, using only the finest raw materials sourced from all over the world. Tonya employed time-honoured, traditional methods to formulate the perfumes while trusting her intuition to bring balance to the collection.
The hand & body range was developed in addition to the perfumes. The body washes are gentle cleansers full of moisturising properties including aloe vera, coconut oil and the deeply nourishing pro-vitamin B5. The body lotions provide a lightweight but rich treatment for the skin with ingredients such as shea butter, aloe vera, sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, marula seed oil and argan kernal oil.
Alchemy of Fragrance
Inspired by his earliest scent memory of his father wearing the iconic Grey Flannel cologne—fascinated by everything about it: the bottle, the label, down to the flannel bag it came in—Chris Collins launches three exciting new scent “stories” that truly embody his love of all things lifestyle and luxury.
Harlem Nights, Renaissance Man, and Danse Sauvage are the result of a love affair with fragrance, dating back to his teenage years when he first got his hands on Calvin Klein’s iconic Obsession for Men. A meeting with famed French perfumer Kilian Hennessy later on led to Chris spending months in Mougins and Grasse, France—the birthplaces of fragrance—learning the process of transforming notes into memorable scent experiences, immersing himself in its unique artistry. There he learned how to transform individual notes into something of greater value: the fragrance.
From his life-changing immersion in Paris and life as a New Yorker in his historic brownstone in Harlem, Chris has brought on these three new fragrances to tell the story of a man and the love affair between these two places close to his heart.
Inspired by Josephine Baker’s ‘Savage Dance’ from her performances in 1920s Paris, Danse Sauvage is an irresistible combination of black pepper, plum, cognac and amber that’s designed to be an unbridled and passionate exploration of the oriental theme. Shades of cedarwood, patchouli and tonka bean add the requisite spice and depth to the composition wonderfully.
Manly and aromatic, Renaissance Man emerges with spiced citrus notes that merge harmoniously with the heart of warming ginger, sage and honey. Rooted with vetiver and sandalwood for depth the perfume also harbours a marine accord, which gives a dynamic freshening effect whilst the combination of sage and honey serve to energise and enthral.
My favourite scent in the collection is Harlem Nights reminiscent of an underground jazz night, mysterious, alluring and seductive.
Built to encapsulate the atmosphere in Collins’ native Harlem, NY when the sun goes down, Harlem Nights is a fragrance that is warm, mysterious, romantic and alive. A true exploration of seduction it uses a heart of rum, orris, saffron and patchouli to play against the modern classic accord of sandalwood, vanilla and ambergris that is the base of the perfume. Introductory notes of lemon and grapefruit are the gateway citrus notes that awaken the senses before the woody sweet symphony plays out on skin.
