Voyageur by Jean Patou | Fragrance Posse A mini of bygone perfume

Hello Posse. How do I not learn about Voyageur by Jean Kerleo for Jean Patou? Launched in 1995, I used to be dwelling in London and infrequently frequented the hallowed fragrance halls of Selfridge & Co, Harvey Nix and Harrods. So unusual to me that it utterly handed me by. Again then the squirt bitches (of each sexes) have been freely giving minis prefer it was Xmas on daily basis. Anyway, trawling FragranceNet the opposite week and shopping for some Sira des Indes for presents I observed it within the Patou part. A 5ml mini for about US$5 with the boat, throw it in.

I’m nonetheless very bitter that LVMH purchased Patou and killed the perfumes. Presently hoarding all of them and gifting as many as I can to maintain the reminiscence alive. Not simply amongst perfumistas.

Ahhhh! Voyageur has that Nineteen Nineties vibe of citrus woody fragrant dressed up as water, as purveyed by Issey Miyake within the L’Eau d’Issey vary however performed a lot smoother. Additionally it looks like an amalgamation of that vibe with conventional menswear. So much much less pungent too. Right here now we have a perfume that’s so delightfully beneath the radar that it may not have carried out effectively within the fragrance halls of the Nineteen Nineties. Everybody was saying they have been over the facility perfumes however they have been simply as brutally obnoxious, from a distinct course.

The guts is gentle focus herbaceousness underpinned by woods and the citrus maintains a really faint presence an extended methods into dry down. Contemplating how quiet the perfume is the longevity is superb. I can critically think about Voyageur being an enormous hit within the Asian nations that discover loud perfumes impolite and obnoxious.

Although positively aimed on the blokes anybody may put on Voyageur. Projection could be very small, introverted fragrance, longevity is all day. I swiped some on the the night and will nonetheless odor gentle whispers this morning.

Taking a look across the web there aren’t even that many second hand bottles on the market and nothing over US$300, even for full 100ml BNIC. I’m questioning if it wasn’t round for lengthy. A number of the full sized bottles additionally include the ship. SO COOL! No I didn’t go buying. I’m having a few tooth implants performed so all discretionary spending cash is being filtered in direction of that.

I cherished this piece the place Tom reminisces about Patou’s Pleasure!
