Scholar's Mate

Type: Parfum

Scholar’s Mate is a woody, aromatic, floral scent created for Men and Women in 2022 by perfumer Christelle Laprade.


This scent is soothing and smooth. Spices and smoky woods are subtly tamed with a touch of Orris. It is safe to wear to the office, but is much better suited for any occasion on a cold evening. It will bring warmth to any moment, and will maintain great longevity. It is best worn during Fall, Winter, and early Spring. It has similarities to Santal du Pacifique Extrait from Perris Monte Carlo.


In Chess, Scholar’s Mate is a pattern that ends the game in 4 moves. With this Scholar’s Mate, the term represents the idea of camaraderie and the poise held by the players. 

The perfumer was inspired by wooden Chess boards, and a Japanese wood preservation technique that uses fire charring, Shou Sugi Ban.


Subtle spices of Cardamom and Cinnamon blend with resinous Elemi and a peppery touch of Pimento. Fresh Grapefruit and Bergamot add a lightness that boosts the note of Orris. Creamy Sandalwood blends with a smooth note of Fig Milk, which helps to gently temper the smoky essences of Vetiver, Cypriol, and Cedarwood.

Top Notes: Cardamom, Bergamot, Cinnamon Leaf, Grapefruit

Heart Notes: Orris, Elemi, Pimento

Base Notes: Indian Sandalwood, Fig Milk, Vetiver Madagascar, Cypriol, Cedar Wood
