This extract from the beautiful video by Brazilian film director Renato Cabral depicts the spirit of Unrestricted Man – and specifically Patchouli, the Scent of the Sixties.
Unrestricted Man is the signature fragrance of the men’s line of Old Khaki clothing designer and retailer (part of the Cape Union Mart Group). In Old Khaki’s Unrestricted Man Eau de Parfum you will detect notes of masculine, earthy Sage and Tobacco, balanced with classical White Florals, and finally Patchouli, which is sure to trigger memories of home, easy living and freedom.
Sage (Latin: Salvia Officinalis) – a classic, popular fragrance, smelling a bit savoury, with hazy, soft and mildly peppery aspects.
Light Tobacco (from the tobacco plant, Latin: Nicotiana tabacum, Solanaceae family). Tobacco, applied here very lightly, is part of the Green ( herby and fougeres or “ferny”) group of perfumes. Tobacco is a rich, nuanced, warm and sweetish scent deriving from the macerated nicotiana tabacum plant with facets of whiskey, maple and caramel, but also containing molecules of rosy-fruity and violet-like aspects. To balance these male elements, the composition contains White Florals as well – jasmine in this case.
The base note, emerging last and lingering longest, is Patchouli. Patchoulol or patchouli alcohol (C15H26O) is a musky, earthy, exotic smell, called “the scent of the sixties”.
