Chypre Perfume Meaning
Chypre scents are special due to the contrast between fresh citrus and woody-oakmoss. Patchouli is considered one of the main elements. Chypre perfumes can be found in both male and female fragrances as well as unisex ones. They tend to have a warm and mossy-woody base with a fresh citrus top.
Vintage versus Modern Chypre Fragrances
Modern Chypre fragrances also combine the traditional ingredients with modern scents of fruit, flowers, leather and animalistic notes. The woody-oakmoss base, is however, respected. Especially, floral notes of rose and jasmine also sometimes appear in Chypre fragrances.
