Created in 1996, Quercus declares itself with a light burst of citrus and basil, supported by a heart accord of jasmine, cardamom and muguet that is sweet, spiced and supremely delicate. The greenness of the basil persists into the surprisingly resilient musk and sandalwood base notes. These are warmed through with moss and patchouli to create elegant, strong and uplifting cologne. Named after the Latin for the British Oak, Quercus is a modern and invigorating cologne enjoyed by both men and women. .
Another home-run by Penhaligon's. This is a lighter fragrance that has a citrusy edge to it. Not as masculine as others that Penhaligon's sells, but that is not to say it is feminine either. If you are not a fan of bold and spicy, Quercus might be a good match.
