Institut Très Bien

Cologne à la Russe is the ultimate Cologne formula. It came into existence in 1906, available on demand at the original Institut Très Bien. Now faithfully recreated from the historical formula, this blend of natural essences harmonizes fresh, crystalline top notes — lemon, citron, bergamot, and sweet lime — and floral heart notes — rosemary, verbena, lavander, and orange blossom — with a soft, amber drydown — neroli, abelmosk, iris, and benzoin. The timeless, coalescent scent will unfold its secrets throughout the day.

Eau de Parfum - 100 ml

Elegant, crisp & warm. The story of Cologne à la russe is the surprising tale of a formula retrieved from an old perfumery handbook. Even the formula’s name captures your imagination, promising a sensory experience beyond compare. A marvel of poetry only awaiting a new reader. A tale steeped in emotion. The fragrance lives again, thanks to the work of skilled perfumers. Rare, natural essences are brought together, forming a surprising yet remarkably balanced combination, issuing forth the olfactory perfection only found in Cologne, subtle and timeless. For beyond a fragrance, Cologne is a gesture, a personal contact, a pursuit of intimacy. Without a doubt, one of the most challenging exercises is composing a variation on this timeless mixture. The meticulous work of searching for the best natural essences, all while respecting traditional blending methods, is a profound commitment to abide by the spirit of the original fragrance.
‘‘The tenacity and delicacy of a fragrance are not commensurate with the quantity of its constituent essences: a product’s value only depends on the way those are combined.’’ René Cerbelaud, 1906
