A popular herbaceous New Orleans blend of soft citrus,
warm woods and leather with Cajun spice undertones to
create a rich, sensual, and harmonious scent.

This Chypre-type scent honors Basile Croquère, a well-
dressed African American Creole born around 1800 in New
Orleans, educated in Paris who was said to have been the
handsomest man in New Orleans. An extraordinary swordsman,
Croquère was the first known fencing master in the South and a sought-after
dueling teacher. Men sought him out for instruction or
crossed him in private bouts.
