The scent of 1000 by Jean Patou is unmistakable, a floral bouquet with a slightly woody twist. It took 10 long years and one thousand attempts to achieve the perfect formula. Launched in 1972, the opulence and charm of 1000 leaves a remarkable impression. It's a symphony of precious essences distilled from the most exquisite flowers. The fragrance opens with subtle apricot notes and a daring harmony of Chinese osmanthus. The full body of the fragrance comes to life with a blend of orris and violet. The fragrance then descents into warm and sensual accords of mysore sandalwood and patchouli.
