Not 007 but 900 this time for Mr Craig.
This roughed up rose: green, dirty, mossy, animal and uncompromising is the perfect perfume for the actor who has returned a sense of the complex, disturbed and difficult to Her Majesty’s Favorite Secret Agent.
The scent opens assertively, some even sensing outright aggression in amongst the oakmoss, coriander, green notes and pepper.
Then the rose, animal, fleshy but also strangely, astringently medicinal comes into play it seduces, but with a definite kick, an edge, a hint of danger.
It dries down into spice and sandalwood, wild grass and earth, never fully leaving behind the floral.
As ever for any Mr Bond, it all ends with a roll in the hay!
Rose petal martinis all round says I!
Shaken, not stirred, of course.
The Perfumed Dandy.
