In 1930, Coco Chanel had a dream—a dream of the perfect woody perfume that was baroque but with no frills. Alas, the result, Sycomore (no, not Sycamore), was not appreciated in its time. Seventy-eight years later, however, Jacques Polge has reincarnated the smoky scent, rooted in vetiver and tempered with notes of pink pepper, juniper, and cypress. Sycomore joins Chanel’s niche Les Exclusifs collection this month; Mademoiselle Coco would have been proud.
