Cypresses in the mirror of Art Deco
The Cypress as XXI. men's fragrance from the Noble series should transfer the wearer to the French Riviera in the 1920s or 1930s. An epoch of freedom and openly displayed decadence. Not yet suspecting or ignoring that the greatest disaster for the European continent is brewing. It's the social dance on a volcano.
I have to admit, I expected Art Deco to have a different fragrance. Somewhat spicy, herbaceous, perhaps even floral hints, but far from it. One could also have expected the smoky sounds of a jazz bar.

The history of the French Riviera fits, however, if you look for Art Deco not only in the metropolises of the 1920s. Here there are cypress groves, the beach promenades surrounded and terrace cafés in the seaside resorts of a distinguished society, escaped from the bourgeois skepticism.

Thanks to bergamot and petitgrain, the Cypress starts slightly fresh, slightly spicy. A wood note resonates from the very beginning.
But it's not a cypress that's too coniferous in appearance. It blends into a mixture of spices. I don't notice ginger. Muscat and clove are very present, which makes the fragrance a distinct men's fragrance. The oak note is inspired by brandy barrels from Prohibition.

But everything's coming together just fine. No note is intrusive, but the overall concept is intense.
I find the Cypress creamy, almost saturated. It's amplified at base, probably by amber.
I perceive this creaminess and intensity in many of Clive Christian's creations. Therefore dose carefully, especially because the prelude is rather restrained, but the fragrance develops anything but restrained.
After 10 hours a beautiful wood note is still perceptible close to the body.

The bottle, like all of the Noble series, has a very noble design. Elegant black, the red Roman numerals on the black bottle reinforce the value.
The Art Deco Cypress is definitely a candidate, who may complement my collection.
