More Info: First, how to pronounce it: 'sheep-ra'. It is believed that variations of Chypre date back to Roman times. Modern Chypre perfumes have various connotations but can easily be recognized by their warm, mossy base contrasted by a fresh top note and slight bitterness in the dry-down from the patchouli and oak moss. Transport yourself to the therapeutic practice of 'forest bathing' during the fall months where your senses are awakened to the fresh aroma of crushed leaves, the sweet smell of dirt and decay that occur naturally as the seasons change.
