Smokey rooms tucked away behind posh clubs in 1897 St Petersburg conjure images of dedicated followers of magic. Kerosene lamp light in the haze of tobacco and ornate mirrors creates the scene for the perfect illusion. Dark and hypnotic, his voice is calm and deep. “Tsilindr.” A single word, as he removes his famous purple top hat and lowers it down again, gently atop his head.
Mysterious, yet delicate. This inspired blend conjures a full and rich western sensibility with its masterful shades of French Lavender and Vanilla atop depths of rich chocolate and unctuous textures. The greatest finale happens when the man is gone and we still feel his presence, embodied forever in a singular object, the purple top hat that inspired this namesake fragrance.
The great Mr. Bojnokopff
His whereabouts are always known
By those who have had the pleasure
To hear his voice and feel
The mystery of his greatest trick
To be remembered without being seen.
Is it real or just an illusion?
Notes: French lavender, vanilla, dark chocolate, oud, cedarwood
