Penhaligon's Opus 1870 is a complex and elegant woody chypre. Opening with a luxurious accord of sweet citrus and fiery black pepper, the heart is lit by the delicacy of English Clove Rose and evocative incense. The base notes are glorious, smoky waves of aromatic cedarwood and sandalwood. Created in 2005, Opus 1870 is wonderfully warm and comforting, a fragrance to wrap yourself in on cold winter nights. Made in England.
Editor's Notes: Luxury should never shout. Opus 1870 is the thinker's fragrance with an enigmatic chypre heart. Layer upon layer unfurls, as the traditional blurs into the exotic. Tart yuzu citrus moves into cracked black pepper, spicy English rose morphs into cedar wood, and cinnamon moves into coriander seed. Showcased is an abundance of flinty and smoky accents in the same vein as Terre d’Hermes.
