Gambit is a fresh, Fougere, woody scent created for Men and Women in 2023 by perfumer Carlos Vinals.


This scent is earthy and fresh. Though it is a unisex scent, it leans masculine with its Fougere style that comes from Petitgrain and Lavender. Over time the composition develops a gentle spicy essence that is later warmed with Sandalwood and Amber. In the end, Patchouli makes itself known, but is very well behaved. Everything in the scent is so mellow and everything takes its turn. Its earthy, woody essence makes it perfect for Men who like something soft, and Women who want something unisex that leans masculine. It has a vibe that dances the line between casual and professional, making it perfect for any time, place, occasion, setting and season. Though it has a mellow quality to it, it will last. It is comparable to Masculin Pluriel from Maison Francis Kurkdjian, with a more earthy tone. Try this sample and let us know what you think!


A Gambit in Chess is a strategy where pawns, or minor pieces, are sacrificed in order to gain a more advantageous position later in the game.


Petitgrain opens this scent with its zesty, earthy/citrusy essence. Lavender follows closely behind, adding a gentle earthy tone that feeds the Fougere style you will feel. Clove and Cardamom pair up with Geranium, giving the heart of this scent a fleeting spiciness. Sandalwood and Ambroxwood add a velvety warmth giving this scent an inviting feeling. A final note of Patchouli comes in, in a gentle way….making itself known without overwhelming any of the other notes.
