Bavard sample

  • This is a 2 ml spray sample. Find the full bottle here.  

    Bavard, which translates to talkative or loquacious in French, was initially a bespoke scent for a fellow niche fragrance enthusiast with a shared appreciation of bold aromatic throwbacks. This spice-bomb aromatic fragrance with a boozy absinthe vibe and a honeyed sweetness in the drydown is inspired by vintage classics of the 1980s - a time when confident youth wore excessive amounts of bold, daring, distinguished fragrances without apprehension. Whether you are into vintage or just feel like standing out from the crowd, Bavard is there for you.

    Notes include artemesia,  basil, benzoin, bergamot, cardamom, caraway, cedar, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, cypress, fir balsam, heliotrope, juniper berry, labdanum, lavender, leather, mandarin, oakmoss, orris, patchouli, petitgrain, rosemary, sandalwood, tobacco, vanilla, vetiver, and ylang ylang.
