DEEP DIVE

WITH PERFUMER CHRISTELLE LAPRADE

"Tobacco has such a multi-facetted, addictive scent. A breath of smoke carries with it an earthy dampness, a creamy sweetness and an obvious haze of smokiness. Checkmate captures that experience, constructed in a sophisticated fashion."
David Apel, Perfumer

Gardez opens with a breeze of pink pepper and orris that is met with intriguing notes of black leather and cedarwood. A poised synergy of florals and woods.
