Prudence’s latest addition to her men’s collection is dedicated to a young Frenchman born and educated in Australia. Alexis Comte de Vienne inherited his title when still a boy, following the premature death of his father, Patrick de Vienne, who had participated and won the historic yacht race from San Francisco to Tahiti before moving to Australia where he bred horses. The family had for centuries embodied a naval and seafaring tradition, being involved in the battle of Trafalgar and other historic naval engagements. Part of the family crest is reproduced on the elegant black flacon. The fragrance has classic top notes of bergamot, orange and grapefruit which then give way to an elegant heart of patchouli, pepper, rose, pink berries and a hint of geranium. The aristocratic dry down of cedarwood, musk, vetiver, oakmoss and benzoin rounds out this masculine Woody/Chypre eau de toilette.
How to Use
- Like any fragrance, use one or two sprays around your neck and on your pulse points (areas where the body is warmer, such as the wrists, ankles, inside the elbows and behind the knees) from a minimum distance of 6 inches, then allow to dry without rubbing.
