Best Man by Succes de Paris Cologne. Although typically labeled as a men’s fragrance, Best Man enjoys success with wearers of all genders.
An aromatic, woody blend with a complex scent profile, it opens with a delightful combination of fragrant pink pepper and cardamom with the ever-popular bergamot, along with galbanum and cassis. After this, its heart blooms with a distinctive mixture of red berries, along with the pleasantly pungent incense qualities from hinoki wood and frankincense.
Finally, its base note blend of balsam fir, driftwood and amber provide a solid foundation for the cologne’s upper notes. The result is a relaxing blend that might easily remind one of natural textures such as forests and oceans, along with some spicy and fruit accents.
Perfumer maestro Bertrand Duchaufour, in collaboration with colleagues Geza Schoen and Mark Buston, crafted Best Man. This one of Succes de Paris’ 2016 releases intends to embody the spirit of a renegade. Its aromatic blend is a favorite of many bold, adventurous wearers, which is unsurprising for those familiar with the Australian perfume label.
