Detaille is a brand of French perfumes and cosmetics created in 1905 by a rather outgoing countess. The brand still has a turn of the century feel with its inspiration and packaging. Aéroplane is a perfume that is a souvenir of the excitement of mankind conquering flight.
Aeroplane opens as an old-school basil citrus “eau de cologne”. It’s a sunny lemon juice and neroli. It gets mossier as it dries down. It becomes this “summer” chypre of patchouli, moss and fresh herbs.
The overall feel is old-school – reminding me of heritage eau de colognes, vintage men’s scents and “sporty” 1970’s women’s fragrances. If you love classic, citrus chypres, try this one. It’s one of those elegant “everyday” scents for those that like heritage blends.
Notes listed include lemon, bergamot, petit grain, basil, mint, jasmine, patchouli, vetiver and oak moss.
Or if you like perfumes like Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien, Atelier Cologne Cedrat Evirant, Estee Lauder Azurée, Guerlain Habit Rouge and/or vintage Jean Naté. Even though it is more traditionally masculine, it does seem more unisex by modern standards.
Projection and longevity are average for an EDT. I get about 5 hours of wear.
The 3.4 oz bottle retails for $80 at Luckyscent. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Chypre “cologne”. It’s a really great “fresh” scent and the price is right.
