The Black Knight is a gothic, intense and sophisticated perfume inspired by the historical character Giovanni Dalle Bande Nere (John of the Black Bands), an Italian mercenary captain of the Renaissance who belonged to the glorious Medici family. Reminiscent of this character's stoic commitment to his cause, his loyalty, and his Spartan way of life, this perfume captures the atmosphere of a military encampment and is further narrated by the smell of wild shrubs, the smoke of camp fire and the bridle leather of horse tacks. Later delving deeper into the soul of this stern character, a romance is revealed by the introduction of a secret mistress, a powdery rose that stirs up a heart of vetiver. The vetiver being the true protagonist of this story.
