EAU DE PARFUM
Family: Oriental woody
Perfumer: Marie Clapisson
Notes: Cardamom, incense, labdanum, vetiver, birch, gaiac wood, peru balsam
Dark, dusty, smoky with a bit of a tangy bite and an animalic quality we can only describe as unsettling, Python Sauvage makes us think of snakeskin frying on a dirt road in the middle of a scorching desert. The perfumer uses cardamom skillfully, seemingly bringing out the woody qualities of the husk rather than the sweeter qualities of the seeds. It's the perfect accent for notes of smoky birchwood and blades of dried vetiver. This would make an awesome fragrance for a biker or to enhance the scent of a leather jacket. Python Sauvage is an intelligent fragrance that is modern and edgy.
Each bottle comes with a beautiful matching scarf.
From the brand: Python Sauvage (Wild Python)
Slipping on the hot and dark bark,
Attracted by the dampness of dawn,
The Python ripples and dances,
Inspiring suspiciousness as he passes by.
Slowly moving forward through the plants,
He defeats its rivals with his silence.
Undisputed master of the invisible
He prepares his unpredictable attack.
Nested into the mangrove he searches for
The precious grail of his long quest;
Taking comfort from a gentle warmth
While around him the hours run out.
The rustling orchids alert him.
Who goes there unaware, towards defeat?
But it is already dark in the Andaman Islands,
The Python declines, as the setting sun.
