Photo of Chateau, 1970


An excellent representation of glamour and the grit often found beneath it. Featuring spicy notes on top, along with citrus, it quickly develops into a wonderful woody rose to create a sophisticated chypre fragrance that conjures up images of gilded rooms, stuffy ball gowns, and crystal champagne flutes but also the royals who attended that would sneak away at the end of the evening to see the Stones, crammed in the back of limos, trying to hide from the press. There's both elegance and excess. It's the silk scarf they left in the car the driver found the morning after.
