"To say that The Modernist opens brightly would be an understatement. A huge Shalimar-like rush of bergamot races towards you accompanied by touches of lavender and geranium but, right from the outset, a hefty dose of wonderfully resinous labdanum is almost pulling the fragrance in two. Sandwiched in the middle you get traces of mandarin and rose but the appearance of a combination of frankincense and school-waxed cedarwood truly makes this fragrance live."
From modernist fragrance:
Let the modernist beguile you, as a striking combination of floral and fruit calls out through a cloak of citrus. Bergamot opens the parfum and leads the way to a heart of Freesia, its sharp sweetness softening cleanly on the skin. Cradled by the warmth of Frankincense, this dominant, distinguished base and its complexity is enriched with Labdanum, timber and even fruit, creating an autograph for the wearer.
the modernist gets you noticed when you choose - and maintains a discreet presence any time you want to.
"With the modernist, I designed a fragrance that has the self-assured simplicity needed to be a signature. I was getting bored reading about 'fragrance wardrobes' and how people weren't looking for 'signature scents'. If you know, you know. I'm not a big fan of scents that arrive before you do and linger in the room after you’ve left. For sure, be powerful and be bold, but let them remember how you smell, not just the smell."
