Early this year I discovered 2 oud perfumes almost hidden in their shop. Now I discover another new and mysterious perfume. It is called Accord Code 119, presented like an eau de parfum.
Even the name is strange. Is it the real code of the perfume or is it a reference to 1919? Or is it a reference to the postal adress (Alès Group, 119 Rue Salvador Allende)?
The fragrance is a chypre floral fruity, delicate, dry lactonic and with 2 distinctive notes blackberry and peach over a dark woody and musk base. Unlike classic chypre perfumes, this one is less sensual, juicy and rounded but more "corsé" patchouli-spicy-herbs and it reminds me the accord from Gucci Rush played in the style of Francis Kurkdjian. It is a classic shape very soft on skin but without the power or the contrasts of classic Caron perfumes. After several hours some dark herbal notes would appear that suggest me the scent of those dried herbs like immortelle, hay or cannabis. The floral note inside is very delicate: jasmine Jasmophore- rose-lily.
