Prudence’s latest addition to her men’s collection is dedicated to a young Frenchman born and educated in Australia, but now returned to Europe. Alexis Comte de Vienne inherited his title when still a boy following the premature death of his father Patrick de Vienne.
The family had for centuries embodied a naval and seafaring tradition being involved in the battle of Trafalgar and other historic naval engagements. Part of the family crest is reproduced on the elegant black flacon. Patrick had participated and won the historic yacht race from San Francisco to Tahiti before moving on to Australia where he bred horses.
The fragrance, an Eau de Toilette, has classic headnotes of Bergamot, Orange and Pamplemousse, Its elegant heart comprises Patchouli with a hint of Geranium. The aristocratic and classic finish contains Cedarwood, Musk, Vetiver and Mousse de chêne with a hint of Benjoin.
