CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

UNISEX SELLS

In Truman Capote’s novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Holly Golightly has three essential accessories which she keeps in the mailbox of her apartment: a lipstick, a mirror and a bottle of fragrance. Infuriatingly, on film we cannot glimpse the bottle, but intriguingly, the text tells us it’s 4711 – a unisex cologne dating back to 1792. Largely unchanged for more than 200 years, its exact recipe remains a secret, but it’s the super-charged citrus that continues to appeal – crisp neroli infused with lavender and a herbaceous greenness. Just as a man’s classic white shirt becomes charged with an extra level of erotica when borrowed by a woman, so too do those scents we now think of as more ‘masculine’ when worn on a woman’s skin. But can the same be said of ‘feminine’ notes for a man?
