Starting out in a dark green forest, Kościuszko smoothes out into a rich, woody and slightly sweet fragrance with hints of cognac and warm spice. It feels so expansive at first, bringing to mind imagery of an explorer on a new frontier, yet the longer it's on the skin, the more intimate it becomes, as though the explorer has kicked his legs up in front of the fire with his trusty pipe and brandy snifter. It's a modern woody fragrance with noticeable vintage leanings--the perfect combination from such a historical American perfume house.
From the brand: Kościuszko is part of the new JBS collection of fragrances inspired by the true stories behind original Blocki fragrances from the early 1900s; modern fragrances with an authentic heritage.
Through creeks and fields deep in the wilderness they talked of liberty’s peasant prince to rally their spirits. Blocki created Bouquet Kosciusko in 1903 as a tribute to the legendary statesman and freedom fighter. Revolutionary aspirations reignite as the scent of brandy and smoke fade into morning sunlight rising over the grassy field at the edge of the wood.
How to pronounce Kościuszko? You're not alone in this challenge, Chief Little Turtle of the Miami nicknamed him Kotcho.
