  • Sale
  • Regular price $74.00


The elusive SHEHERAZADE by Jean Desprez was originally created in 1939 as an homage to the narrator of the Arabian Nights.  This beautiful, complicated beast mode Animalic Oriental boasts spices, fruits, herbs, florals, resins, woods, and a giant dollop of Civet.  Sherherazade was reorchestrated and rereleased in 1983, and the bottles available here are from that period.
