The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

L’Air de Panache, the favourite perfume of M. Gustave H.

According to Wes Anderson, “it has a Russian quality, like Orthodox incense. Plus, something collected from the erogenous zones of rare animals.” This was born as a fictional perfume, but has recently become reality: Anderson and distributor Fox Searchlight Pictures commissioned perfumer Mark Buxton, co-founder of French perfume boutique Nose, to create a concept scent.

The head notes include basil, bergamot, mandarin, petitgrain and green apple; the heart notes include sambac jasmine and rose; the base notes inlcude amber, castoreum, cedar, oakmoss, musk and patchouli.

Unfortunately, L’Air de Panache is not available for sale.
