In August 1965, at the age of sixteen, Robin Lee Graham sets out from San Pedro, California to sail around the world in his 24- foot sloop Dove. In 1970, after almost five years, he sails back into his home port to successfully complete the youngest solo circumnavigation. Robin Lee Graham's solo global voyage provides the inspiration for the 08/65 Boating Moccasin.
SeaVees celebrates the casual style of California in the 1960s. Think Steve McQueen cool, Richard Neutra clean and Brian Wilson creative. Now think of these things with 40 years of perspective, appreciation, and contemplation.
BOIS 1920 - CLASSIC 1920
DETAILS: The initial notes of this scent remind me vaguely of Hinoki's crisp cedar note accented by thyme and turpentine, replaced in Classic 1920 by lemon, and basil. This top note, which is exceptionally clean without overbearing on the nose with overwhelming citrus zest, fades majestically into a glorious chypre blend. Haitian Vetiver plays an important role, not to be outdone by the subtle lavender, apricot, and floral bouquet, touched up with pimento and nutmeg. Of course there's also the Chinese citron and bergamot, which provide the citrus heart to the body of this scent. And to top it all off, the coup de grace, Antilles sandalwood with notes of amber, ambregris, and musk. The result is a refreshing, classically sexy fragrance that's brilliant day and night, rain or shine. A truly stunning accomplishment, one we're proud to have here in the Apothecary.
