Rogue Taking A Walk On The Modern Side...
Le Canotier opens with a slightly bracing, bitter-green orange bergamot and violet leaf tandem before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart, the sharp-green violet leaf recedes but remains, now joining dulled orange in support of an emerging lemon-like woody vetiver that takes the fore. During the late dry-down the composition development stays relatively linear as the vetiver remains the star, only softening slightly as time passes as the violet leaf vacates to reveal an underlying mild, natural smelling tobacco leaf in support through the finish. Projection is outstanding, as is longevity at well over 15 hours on skin.

Le Canotier is somewhat of a departure from most of the Rogue offerings by talented perfumer Manuel Cross. While most of the line focuses on compositions of the past, with many the *distant* past... Le Canotier feels quite modern in style and structure by comparison. I can see how one going into smelling the composition expecting a more classical structure based on the others in the line could walk away surprised and disappointed by the perfume, but this writer finds the sharp, lemony vetiver-centric modern perfume to be quite compelling and intoxicating regardless. The perfumer's deft use of the supporting blonde tobacco to take a bit of the edge off the vetiver as time passes is a particularly interesting and wholly successful choice, with the combination working well when sniffed up close on skin, but even more effective in the sillage. The bottom line is the $110 per 60ml bottle Le Canotier may be a stark departure for perfumer Cross, but in no way an unwelcome one, earning an "excellent" to "outstanding" 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5 rating, and an easy recommendation.

21st Century Dandy
Le Canotier is a vetiver scent. And yet Manuel arranges classic ingredients of a chypre around jasmine, violet and blonde tobacco. It gives this fragrance a well-groomed, balanced dandy aura, as a counter part to all the hustle and buzzing of our time.

Named after a flat straw hat for men, which became fashionable especially in the 1920s and quickly became the epitome of the modern man of that time, this fragrance perfectly combines the echoes of classic colognes with modern, balanced freshness and lots of tobacco. The use of oakmoss and ambergris gives the scent an additional subliminal attractiveness and sensuality, which I like a lot. The result is a perfume that is striking and flattering, and at the same time stands for a timeless image of a gentleman.

Le Canotier was reissued by Manuel for a short time.
