For Jaguar Classic Chromite, perfumer Michel Almairac was tasked with translating the exhilarating sensations of driving one of their ultra-classic and always-stylish cars into scent. So where did he begin? ‘To me, Jaguar represents great refinement and strong character’, he explains. The sparkling opening is ‘…like the wind blowing through an open car window’, says the perfumer – think a flash of just-peeled mandarin, the crisp tartness of green apple and a background of mineral-like incense to add mystery and sophistication to the journey.
The result? Power, purified.
