Mancera Perfumes is a luxe brand started by French Perfumer Pierre Montale of The House of Montale in 2008 and is now under the artistic direction of his daughter Amélie. Mancera perfumes are created using only the best quality ingredients and bottled in art deco flacons that are very elegant. Many of the scents are distinctively “Eastern” in feel and the Company is known by many for their use of oud; the surprise is just how many “western” leaning fragrances are in the range that feature citrus, fresh, sweet, floral, fruity and rose notes.1. Mancera Red TobaccoMancera Red Tobacco debuted recently. Some niche perfumes achieve a cult following from the onset and that seems to be the case with Mancera Red Tobacco. It is classified as an Oud fragrance. However, Oud takes a supporting role to the very rich, heady tobacco note that is enveloped in cloud of spicy amber. Mancera Red Tobacco defies a typical classification and is in a class all its own. Fragrance notes include crisp green apple, juicy pear, jasmine, Madagascar vanilla, white musk.2- Mancera Cedrat BoiseCedrat Boise combines two popular classifications in fragrance: citrus and woods. Mancera Cedrat Boise differs from many others with its warmth; hints of spices, fruit and moss take this fragrance from bright and bold to woody. Hints of spiciness tease and enhance the warmth of the citrus as black currant adds just the right amount of sassiness to this. It’s fruity and mildly sweet; yet it remains bright and clear. The fruitiness continues into the heart where this perfume pivots from bright and bold to woody and rich on the fulcrum of water jasmine’s sweetness and patchouli’s woody floral earthiness.3-Mancera Aoud Exclusif Rose and oud is such a popular combination in perfumery and has been the ‘perfect pair’ in the Middle East for millennia. They complement each other so well. Rose, Oud and Patchouli create a perfect trifecta. There is an explosion of spices as well as leather and ambery touches in Aoud Exclusif. The twist is the fresh aromatic nuances. If you enjoy Spicy Orientals and\/ or rose- oud fragrances then be sure to give this one a chance especially in cooler weather and for evening wear.4-Mancera Auod Lemon MintClean and bright and not overly strong, this Mancera perfume features a medley of fresh citruses (especially lemon, which is particularly dominant) and aromatic mint. Lest you think this is a light summery fragrance or just another citrusy scent, the musky, woody amber drydown adds depth. Can be worn for day or night all year round.5- Mancera Lemon LineLemon is a citrus that has a tart scent or can be sweet in a perfume, depending on how it used. Here zest is the best! The sweet\/ tart aroma of lemon is blended with aromatic lavender that is easily worn by both men and women. The sweet heart of white florals is bright and cheery before drying down to a mossy musk.
