Named for a mythical French thoroughbred, Percival is that rarest of wonders- a truly ageless masculine. Sure, we can picture a dashing racing horse thundering around an 18th century track to the delight of the aristocracy, but Percival is every bit as appropriate on a debonair gentleman in a pristine late-model luxury sedan, stylishly cutting his way through the bustling city night on his way to an exclusive gathering. With a subtle yet striking balance between citrus and aromatic notes, a richly masculine floral heart of lavender, violet and geranium, and a spiced, deeply woodsy base, this is the kind of scent that wears as perfectly on any man as an impeccably tailored three-piece suit- a timeless signifier of dignity and taste. Fresh, sensual and refined, Percival is bound to leave a lasting impression.

For me, Percival is made for spring and summer, and is a well made classy parfum that is definitely up to the task. I love the citrus that jumps out strong at first, florals and spice behind it, before the amber and wood kicks in the base. It's great for casual wear or work or a day date. For ME, as this is my favorite house and they have multiple great heavier and complex fragrances for the evening or cooler wear, this is the reason I put Percival in that category. I can see a lot of people choosing it as a signature scent.
Percival is a safe and versatile fragrance that reminds me of Chanel. A nice summer day/ night scent but it really can be worn all year round. 8/10 IMO
It’s a fresh scent that actually lasts a long time. My wife absolutely loves it! I’ve seen reviews that say it smells familiar and too much like other brands. I disagree, I think it has a uniqueness that you can’t put your finger on and it smells high end like real thought was put into it.
