Hi there Perfume Posse. Chypre Shot is an excellent name for a fragrance and comes from Olfactive Studio with Leather Shot and Vanilla Shot (OMG! Vanilla is utterly swoon worthy but I gave my sample away to TinaG who it smelled amazing on). The new crowd funded bottle has been enhanced with a rubber/leather(?) slip in the most 1950s medical instrument colour, kind of bloody brown. It’s a captivating look, I really want to hold one to see and feel what it’s like.
Chypre Shot by Olfactive Studio 2018
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Cardamom, Saffron, Bergamot
Heart: Peony, Black pepper, Coffee, Black tea
Base: Oakmoss, Patchouli, Labdanum, Amber
Chypre Shot opens quite warm and amber-ish with a spicy pepper/saffron zing and smooth cardamom overlaying all. Not a chypre in the vintage mode, here a clean patchouli works with hints of moss in the base. What mainly shines through on my skin is the warmth of the amber. Sweet, cozy and slightly animalic labdanum gives lovely depth.
