Type: Parfum

Checkmate is a flora, Tobacco, woody scent created for Men and Women in 2022 by perfumer David Apel.


This scent is Tobacco and Rose done right. It maintains a refined and elegant quality, while allowing the warmth to shine with incredible longevity. It can be worn to the office, if sprayed sparingly, but is best suited for cold weather, evening occasions and intimate moments. It is comparable to Shalini Parfums Amorem Rose and Memo Paris French Leather.


In Chess, a Checkmate ends the game. There are no more moves to be made. With Checkmate here, the combination of Tobacco and Rose has reached a lever of perfection that is unsurpassable.


Tobacco and Rose perfection ensues within this composition. Rose de Mai, Bulgarian Rose, and Rose Centifolia are given a softness with Red Currants, Magnolia, and a Champagne note. Tabac Bourbon, already warm in and of itself, is further boosted with Patchouli Leaves and Sandalwood. A final note of Tree Moss adds a subdued warmth, taming any sharp edges and adding refinement. 

Top Notes: Davana, Champagne, Rouge Groseille DI

Heart Notes: Rose de Mai Vitessence, Bulgarian Rose, Magnolia, Rose Centifolia Vitessence

Base Notes: Tabac Bourbon DI, Patchouli Leaves, Tree Moss, Santal
