Purple 16 is a woody and citrusy perfume for men, handmade with natural oils of the finest quality. Scent&Colour fragrances are vegan, not tested on animals (Regulation EC No 1223/2009), and follow all the European regulations by being registered in the CPNP (Cosmetic Product Notification Portal). The natural ingredients of this perfume have been evaluated according to COSMOS standards for natural and organic cosmetics.
This is one of the best oud-citrus combo ever! It opens with a fresh, elegant and citrusy oud with dominant bergamot and with a hint of spicy. It is green, woody and resinous. Soon enough, during mid-development, coriander becomes stronger, woodier and a bit balsamic. The dry down is dominant oud with a whisper of musk, sandalwood and patchouli. A complex marvelous composition.
At the moment, you will receive this perfume in a glass bottle. However, we are re-introducing the aluminum refillable bottle in 2021 so once you finish your scent, you can send back your bottle in the post and we will top it up for you in the perfume studio. This way we avoid using a new bottle every time, which reduces waste and contributes to a cleaner planet!
This premium scent has at least 14% essential oils, which classifies as eau de parfum, which lasts much longer on your skin than an aftershave. You will be able to smell the scent for hours once you apply it.
Unlike most fragrances on the market, this perfume does not contain propylene glycol, a chemical that is frequently used in perfumery to make the scent last longer on the skin. This substance is likely to cause rashes and irritation. Scent&Colour perfumes naturally settle and stay on you thanks to the quality of our ingredients as well as the concentration of oils; which makes them perfect for those who have sensitive skin.
Although our perfumes might be very similar to niche or designers’ scents, we only use essential oils which are suitable for vegan consumption. This original Scent&Colour fragrance has been exclusively created by Scent&Colour. It must not be confused with the original branded scent. Scent&Colour does not have any kind of affiliation with the brands. Scent&Colour’s formulations are exclusive, they are vegan alternatives to your favourite scents or equivalents.
If you wish to try this scent before purchasing a bottle, you can order a tester here.
Purple 16 is one of my favourite perfumes by Scent and colour. It smells like Colonia oud by Acqua di Parma, but stronger. It is now my signature scent, my own personal fragrance. Everyone around me associates this unique scent with me (or so I’ve been told)
