Paris 1905. Caveau des Innocents is the underworld hub of urban Parisian nightlife. Its clients a volatile melange of licentiousness and corruption - ladies of the night, a magistrate and his mistress, gangsters ("les Apaches"), farmers, philosophers, free-living writers, a foreign prince and a young duke. The promise of erotic debauchery and elegant iniquity beckons...
Tabac, dark coffee, piquant cloves, rum soaked pears, candied citron, dark caramel, and star anise bathed in intoxicating swirls of opoponax, labdanum, hashish, benzoin resinoid, vanilla incense, and guaiac wood.
In new rollerball packaging at old amber bottle pricing while we switch over!
What buyers are saying:
Oh, this scent is just Earth shattering! Every single note is outstanding, it is beautifully layered, and it changes gorgeously throughout the day. Its beauty startled me the first time I smelled it, and I still maintain that it is one of the most georgeous scents I have ever experienced.
Succulent and spirited, wearing this tempts one to yell, "Step right up, ladies and gents!" I run this through my hair after a shower for maximum sillage and I'm always told, with awed expression, that I smell like a carnival.
My kind of scent: Black coffee, rum-soaked pears, and a hint of burnt sugar. Brings to mind the gourmand aspects of Mugler's Angel, but without the throat-catching patchouli.
Gorgeous fragrance - almost masculine, but not quite. Almost gourmand, but not quite. It's unique and different from anything I've smelt before. Love wearing this to work and at home. It's quite strong too, so just a drop or two suffices for me.
Caveau is spectacular - complex and rich, and probably suitable for men as well as women.
Caveau des Innocents is amazing. When I first smelled it, it smelled floral, sweet and caramel-y, and something spicy. But when it dries, it's all these things and more.
