Haltane is an original scent of both light and shadow, a contrasted journey of the senses through tradition and innovation, and a perfect balance of sophistication and freshness. A bold fragrance for gentlemen of all generations.
Its bright freshness and herbal top notes quickly yield a warm and smooth sense of leather with a symphony of precious woods. Soft and rich, escorted by saffron, the praline accord is an ultra-modern spin on mythical Oud wood. Natural agarwood emerges in this veil of contrasts and signs the skin with a refined and luminous imprint and an enduring comfort. A sensual privilege.
Notes: bergamot, lavender, clary sage, saffron, cedarwood, praline, oudwood, patchouli, vetiver, musk, leather, natural agarwood
Why you'll love it
"Haltane" is Parfums de Marly’s long awaited revisit of the oud genre, and in true Marly style, it feels noble, elegant, and oh-so-aspirational. It opens with a breezy waft of lavender, supple, velvety, and demure like the prairies. Languid rays of sweetness beam from petrified jewels of agarwood. Upon first spray, the Etiket office rang out in unison: it’s like masculine candy! But this isn’t a sticky, indulgent gourmand. "Haltane" is warm but restrained, like a smouldering forest covered in a paper-thin craquelin of sugar. There is quiet confidence in its simplicity. As it dries down, it becomes even smoother, worn-in like a blindingly expensive pair of hazel-coloured calfskin leather gloves. Embers of subtle, oud-y funk begin to warm it from the inside without sacrificing its nutty freshness. "Haltane" is a comforting, dependable presence; proof that nice guys (and girls, et al) do sometimes finish first.
