The Clothing of world renown Fashion Designer, Paul Smith, are both highly sort after and aspired to own, like collectable pieces of art. His customers/fans are not only incredibly loyal but border on fanatical with their interest in all his projects.
A Paul Smith suit has long been an object of desire in every style-conscious man’s wardrobe, not all managing to achieve this sartorial goal, but now Britain’s foremost designer has created something for every man’s fragrance wardrobe too: Paul Smith Essential.
Taking its inspiration from the simple elegance of fine tailoring – and with an eye firmly on the details – this woody and aromatic fragrance is the very embodiment of Paul Smith style: effortless, contemporary, surprising and eminently wearable. “Essential is for the man who demands the same things from his fragrance as he does from his clothing,” says Smith. “He’s gentlemanly but contemporary at the same time. He knows who he is and is confident with his sense of style, which is classic with a hint of surprise and a sometimes sense of humour.” It’s this balance of confident and classic with a twist of surprise – the very signature of Paul Smith – that inspired Paul Smith Essential.
A contemporary take on a traditional woody aromatic fragrance Paul Smith Essential opens with a crisp, clean ozonic accord and an invigorating burst of yuzu fruit before a trio of intensely aromatic notes (rosemary, clary sage and lavender) emerge to give Essential its distinct and deliciously herbal character. These, in turn, give way to a warm, masculine and woody base while musk gives Essential an irresistible, sensual edge.
