“Palatin” comes from “palace”, and Bertrand Duchaufour's new offering for MDCI is truly princely: a proper pyramid fragrance whose development will take you through three equally fascinating stages as though you were wandering from one grand room to another in an Italian palazzo…
Spray it on, and you're drawn into a rich green 70s-style floral chypre, a galbanum-laced hyacinth splashed with bright green clementine with agrestic lavender accents. The hyacinth's rosy facet melds into a rich floral bouquet of rose, jasmine and iris, brushed with clove and coriander.
But it is when it moves into its drydown that Chypre Palatin unveils its opulent oriental undercurrent – addictive, smooth and fairly growling with animalic notes. Amber, balsams, leather? Check. It's been a long time since we've found a fragrance that gives off such vintage-style lushness, and no wonder: Chypre Palatin is overflowing with lush natural essences, absolutes and resins. Once more, Parfums MDCI demonstrates that the spirit of golden-era French perfumery is still thriving. Treat yourself to a scented palace!
