CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

UNISEX SELLS

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?
