The Gentlemen's Collection is a fascinating mixture of fragrances, all of which are authentic EDTs for the discerning man who cherishes subtle distinction. The ingredients emphasize the masculine effect and have an underlying theme of subtle combinations of unique and robust influences. Presented in chic black bottles, each fragrance bears the arms of the man whose story was its inspiration. Following the success of Augusto, Prudence decided to create a more complex eau de toilette for her male clientele. The inspiration for the fragrance is her father, Alexander, who had a distinguished career as an officer in the Australian Navy. He served with distinction in the Arctic and Far Eastern theatres of action before settling in subtropical Queensland to open an engineering business and create a home and garden which was the inspiration for so many of Prudence's perfumes. Spices permeate all aspects of Alexandre's olfactory pyramid, starting with top notes of cardamom, armoise, bergamot and mint. The heart is a bouquet of orange blossom and lavendar spiced with cinnamon and cumin that gives way to a warm, woody dry down. These base notes are a heady mixture of sandalwood and cedarwood, tinged with powdered flavours of vanilla, amber and tonka bean that round out the Oriental/Chypre eau de toilette.
