Cologne Intense is a wonderfully blended fragrance from celebrated perfumer Luca Maffei. Using highly prized ingredients such as Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian lemon, Cologne Intense is a luxurious and refined masculine scent from the house of Houbigant. Paraguayan petitgrain in the top notes adds a distincly delicate accord of woody green florals to the sharp citrus opening, while a combination of luscious Indian jasmine, piquant pink peppercorns, and herbaceous tarragon in the heart makes for a wonderfully unique aroma. A base of incense and mate, the bitter Latin American tea note, finishes this exquisite scent with exceptional style.
Top: Calabrian Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, Petitgrain Paraguay, Neroli

Jean-François Houbigant of Grasse founded Houbigant in Paris in 1775. Houbigant originally sold gloves and bridal bouquets, originally selling gloves, perfumes, and bridal bouquets. The original shop sign was a hand painted basket of flowers, this was later to become the inspiration for the company’s hugely successful 1912 release; Quelques Fleurs. Houbigant were also pioneers in the use of synthetics, leading them to create the world’s first Fougère fragrance with Fougère Royal. Both Quelques Fleurs and Fougère Royal enjoy almost cult like status at Roullier White, with devotees returning year after year and new ones joining every day.
