Houbigant Cologne Intense EDP 100ml
An elegant, refined homage to the original Eau de Cologne fragrance, this evocative eau de parfum conjures up sun-drenched, shower-fresh Mediterranean landscapes scored in delicate tempos of blossoming citrus groves and verdant florals.
Drenched in early spring sunlight and Mediterranean breezes wafting through dewy citrus groves, the enchanting, provocative aromas of Houbigant cologne have fascinated titled nobility and royalty since its 18th century inception at the height of French Rococo opulence.
The transportative Cologne Intense fragrance honours the alluring originator composed in 1709 by Jean Marie Farina, an impeccable Italian perfumer who had settled in Cologne and founded a proprietary perfume factory the same year.
Named in veneration of his western German city of adoption, his aqua mirabilis masterpiece became an international paragon coveted by titled Europeans, royals and courtesans.
The exquisite fragrance taps superior, raw materials and meticulous craftsmanship in its cultivation, opening with sparkling citrus notes and exotic, peppery tonalities.
In the storm’s placid aftermath, blissful notes of jasmine and spices strike pleasant accords as it pares back to burnished musk and woods.
