Robert Piguet - L'Entier
Launched in 2018, L'Entier de Robert Piguet is an aromatic, aquatic fragrance for both men and women (unisex). Smooth, dark, and iodic, it combines a salty, sour bergamot with accords that mimic the salty freshness of a sea spray. Both ozonic and earthy, the marine notes are perfectly balanced by the rugged, herby depth of sage leaf and the rootiness of orris, a material that smells like dirt-caked roots freshly torn from the soil. Incredibly complex, the base of this wonderful fragrance is largely occupied by a dark, woody oud note that is simultaneously fleshed out with the powdery sweetness of hay, blond tobacco, and tonka bean, and given a salty, metallic airiness by the sea notes and ambergris.
A diffusive, leathery thing of the sea, L'Entier smells like an entire scene - the deserted freshness of a windswept beach mixed with the scent of ancient wood, undergrowth and herbs from a nearby forest. Both fresh and oriental, familiar and exotic, L'Entier is a bold and distinctive choice for people who are themselves bold and distinctive. Two very big thumbs up from the crew here at Essenza Nobile!
