Monochrome is a fragrance expressive of style and the arts. Monochrome references monochromatic painting and ‘Zero’ art – an important component of avant-garde visual art throughout the 20th and 21st centuries with artists such as Kazimir Malevich and Ben Nicholson. These artists explored the use of one colour and the expressivity of texture and nuance, in expressing a wide variety of emotions, intentions and meanings.
The opening of the fragrance belongs to cedar and vetiver combined with an interesting aroma of rosemary and galbanum. The smell is slightly fruity. I can sense a delicate accord of currants and maybe some tropical fruit. The smell is fresh, crisp, but at the same time very interesting. It is not a composition that you can pass by indifferently. In the next stage, the fragrance definitely becomes woody with a slightly dry note of vetiver. If you’re my regular reader, then you know I love vetiver and can smell it in any fragrance. I love the moment when the hints of leather and the slight aroma of cloves begin to be felt. Our skin is now surrounded by a warm, slightly suede aura with a slight sweetness in the back. The fragrance ends with fantastic earthy accents, which are certainly a mixture of leather, wood and the aforementioned rosemary.
The fragrance parameters are very good. The composition stays on the body for up to 10 hours. Monochrome is a composition for fans of light and fresh fragrances with a slight fruity twist. It is an everyday fragrance for work, office and meetings with friends.
