Antaeus by Chanel is an 'Eau de Toilette' for men belonging to the woody chypre family. This is a classic by the prestigious Chanel brand, as it was their second men's fragrance, has been on sale for more than 3 decades and continues to be one of the most exclusive men's fragrances par excellence.
This fragrance was created in 1981 by the perfumer Jacques Polge. It is the story of a strong and intense Greek demigod, Antaeus, who has the ability to combine the extra natural powers of Greek mythology with the delicacy and sensitivity of a real man. Thus, he is Antaeus, a versatile, flesh-and-blood hero with an immense personality, full of contrasts that make him a unique and enchanting species.
Its intense wake begins with a sensory burst, caused by the citrus freshness of bergamot, Amalfi lemon and lime, which makes the earthy and resinous notes of coriander, myrrh and myrrh vibrate. Then, a more delicate heart opens up, perhaps this is the key to the success of this fragrance, a perfect combination of opposing ends, formed by jasmine, thyme, rose and basil. In its final sediment, we find intertwined oak moss, French lava, patchouli and castoreum, woody chords that give it a very manly tone.
CHARACTER AND PRESENCE. The man Antaeus, is a figure with a strong personality and that marks territory with his only presence, imposing and striking.
