Outrecuidant En Aparte

An olfactory powerhouse, Outrecuidant is not afraid. Precociously spiced, this scent evokes an image of the self aware bonvivant, who just might have the phrase ‘handsome is as handsome does’ tattooed on their inner thigh. Initially a-shimmer, Outrecuidant is alight with acidic ginger, autumnal nutmeg and floral of cardamom. Spicy beginnings demonstrate Outrecuidant’s confidence, and provokes a verbal joust with inimitable rose: a burst of high-minded floral energy, rose is simultaneously reacting to olibanum’s sunny retorts. Unmistakably proud, rose and olibanum fend off the piquant jests of top notes, but thankfully never grow too self serious.

The concentrated, heady heart of this scent is diffused through a base that is delightfully daring and irresistibly insouciant. A gorgeous waft of tobacco sweetly caresses, while an almost arrogant dose of oud complicates. But oud, underscored by arousing patchouli, cannot maintain aloof diffidence, and so oud (aided by patchouli) grows lush beside tobacco. Despite its power, the base of this scent is a comforting, easy-to-sink-into final texture. Woody yet warm and totally assured of its own charms, Outrecuidant engages in argument as easily as it woos. (Old French cuidance evolving from the Latin cogitare: to think and outre; beyond, too much)
About En Aparte Collection:
Perfume is expression, a brave declaration and a secret passion; the En Aparte Collection explores this private-public, fragrant duality. Comprised of three distinct but connected compositions (Irrévérent, Outrecuidant, Prolixe) Gerald Ghislain designed En Aparté for his own, private use...until he was inspired to release this trio to the public. Liberating libations worth sharing.

Governed by impulse rather than rules, En Aparte takes us deeper into the extraordinary interior of Ghislain’s imagination, which is fleshed out with exquisite materials and in the delightful, enmeshed poetry of both Eastern and Western fragrant traditions. These sublimely spacious scents are practical magic.
