Inspired by Wendge, the beautifully dark-grained African wood whose dense timber makes it coveted for the crafting of musical instruments, Bass Solo, the newest scent from The Vagabond Prince, is truly a virtuosic work. While Wenge doesn't have an aroma of its own, its combination of beauty and function inspired master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour to fashion a fragrance that itself extracts deep and vibrant accords hidden within its notes.
Like the profound resonance of the titular instrument, Bass Solo offers an aroma pitched in the lowest register, its dense melody composed of a selection of exquisite woody notes including soft sandalwood, salty driftwood, and a blend of cedars with warm, comfortable, dry nuances. Smoky tar and velvety peach flow through the striations, while a light floral cardamom combines with the woodsy warmth to softly caress the wearer. Meanwhile a higher pich of lavender represents the cold metal of the strings, bringing spice and wood together to create magic. Sleek yet deep, beautiful yet powerful, Bass Solo represents a bold new evolution for The Vagabond Prince, and is as striking a scent as we've encountered all year.
