MFH says

Such a beautiful scent to wear, BDK Gris Charnel opens with fresh black tea and fig notes before playfully drying to a sweet boozy base of bourbon, tonka and sandalwood.

It really reminds me of Penhaligon’s Roaring Radcliff but has more of a fresh twist with the fig and black tea on the top.

Definitely more of an evening scent for a cooler evening. Think after-dinner drinks, wearing a velvet smoking jacket and patent brogues.

BDK Gris Charnel Notes

What They Say

Quai Saint-Bernard, near the Jardin des Plantes, the first couples arrive at the Tino-Rossi garden. As the night falls, the number of dancers increases and the bleachers fill up. Under the silver moon and the lights of the tourist barges that criss-cross the quay a few metres away, the bodies mingle to the rhythm of the music. It is then that two glances cross paths. A discreet invitation brings them to the centre of the track. As if they were carried away, they dance in the heat of the night. From this hand-to-hand seduction punctuated by knowing smiles, they end up slipping away to give free flow to more carnal desires. In the early morning, the sheets give off a scent of sleepless nights, mischievous and lascivious embraces.
