[CLOSED] Win the fantastic D’Orsay Le Dandy fragrance

Dear fragrance loving Apes and Gentleman, we are delighted to have been offered by the experts over at fragrance store Les Senteurs a 50ml Eau de Toillette bottle of the fantastic D’Orsay Le Dandy to giveaway.

What is D’Orsay Le Dandy?

First launched by Count Alfred D’Orsay’s descendant, a second Alfred D’Orsay, in 1925, this is a classic scent of the period with unusual notes of tobacco, whisky, ginger and spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper. Crisp top notes of mandarin and bergamot, a rich lasting base of oak and cedar.

Tobacco is now a standard note in the perfumer’s repertoire but 90 years ago it was revolutionary, shocking and controversial – Le Dandy is one of a suite of tobacco-based fragrances that set the olfactory tone of the 1920′s.
