Celui de Jean Dessès Fragrance Reviews


A long discontinued beaty & sadly almost forgotten now, a gloriously rich chypre with prominent floral heart notes of Hawthorne, Hyacinth, Mai Rose & Egyptian Jasmin. A most elegant parfum, not at all sweet or cloying in fact it seemed quite dry & astringent due to the base consisting of rare woods & bolstered by the finest suede leather oils available to the perfumers palette in the years preceding the Second World War.
It does slightly remind me of Lavin's 'Scandal' without the inclusion of the overtly animalic bases,(ie:Castoreum & Civet) 'Celui' de Jean Desses was way ahead of it's time and I believe the eventual demise of this legendary fragrance occured due to the prohibitive cost of the raw materials required for it's ongoing production, sadly the fate of too many great perfumes in my opinion !
If you have the chance to try this gorgeous leather chypre please do so as you won't be disappointed, this is becoming exceedingly rare these days.
Bon Chance. . .


This was my mom's signature long ago! I'd love to come to it!
