INTRODUCTION

Bound by History

Antiquity is revived in 1872 as the perfumer draws on the olfactory heritage of Ancient Rome, injecting it with a clean and fresh touch of modern masculinity.

1872

Uncover the scent

Over time the fragrance evolves to reveal a trilogy of complementary notes.

Top note

Petitgrain

Peach and aromatic Lavender bridge the fruitiness of Petitgrain and pressed Citrus fruit with combined spices Rosemary, Black Pepper and Nutmeg, creating the perfect segue into a complex heart and base.

Heart note

Clary Sage

The heart packs a bold, herbaceous punch. True to its legacy in the military strategies of Emperor Nero, who used it to energise his troops, Clary Sage is infused with Jasmine, Neroli and Musk to give vitality and strength.

Base note

Freesia

Arboreal notes of Cedar wood, Sandalwood and Freesia temper richer surface notes, planting the fragrance in the fertile English countryside and transporting wearers to the heart of the forest.

STORIES

Nero's Reserve

The invigorating properties of Clary Sage, a primary component of 1872, were first recorded in the 1st Century, when Emperor Nero immersed his troops in it's scent before heading into battle.
