Frederic Malle Bigarade Concentree is the more potent form of the Cologne Bigarade. A citrus aromatic fragrance created by Jean-Claude Ellena, it is inspired by the classic cologne. There are interesting aspects of it in the hay notes and lots of woods on the drydown. Notes of Bitter orange, cardamom, pepper, rose, hay, aldehydes, and cedarwood.
From Bois de Jasmin - "traces the life cycle of an orange in reverse—at first, it reveals the aromatic brightness of ripe bitter orange, then it transforms into a pearly white orange blossom before finally melting into a whisper of green leaves and twigs. It is a streamlined composition, with a fresh, resinous character of citrus rinds and young green leaves."
From What Men Should Smell Like - "There is something beguiling about Jean-Claude Ellena and Frederic Malle’s bitter cologne. In some ways it ticks all of the traditional eau de cologne boxes but it also takes the wearer on other journeys not historically linked to the eau de cologne story..."
