People who try out my fragrances for the first time are typically surprised by their potency and stamina. I often read comments that say ‘lasted such a looong time, especially for a natural fragrance’.
D’Aguilar appears to be a simple, classy lavender fragrance that many might pass by in preference for a more exotic sort of heavy amber or mukhallat. Yet, D’Aguilar is one of the most elaborate, complex and difficult formulas I’ve ever composed. The idea for a honeysuckle fougere seemed straightforward. However its taken 3 years of arm-wrestling for it to finally yield. What a pair of stubborn mules we’ve both been. I don’t usually disclose all the notes/ingredients in my formulas, its just not done. However D’Aguilar is a great example of how the layering of incredible ingredients, endless arguments, foot-stamping, back-turning and begging have finally produced a work that demonstrates my theory that ‘if it ain’t great, it ain’t finished’
D’Aguilar is a cool, sweet green floral that has finally achieved its balance point so that it projects beautifully and lasts many hours.
