The name Chypre is derived from the perfume Chypre, which was developed by the French perfumer Coty in 1917. Coty called the perfume Chypre because it reminded him of the island of Cyprus. This perfume lead to a completely new family of perfumes, the Chypres, which are traditionally composed of a citrusy top note (usually bergamot), labdanum as the heart note and a woody (often oakmoss) base note with patchouli.
Chypre Azural is a modern take on this classical theme. It is as juicy and fresh as the Sicilian Tarocco orange at its heart. The typical contrast between fresh top notes and a mossy accord is obtained by adding an intriguing aromatic tarragon note.
Unlike many citrus-forward scents that seem to disappear as soon as you spray them on, Chypre Azural sticks around, swirling and evolving on your skin.
