Born in 1985, in an era of challenges and self-surpassing, Sagamore represents the fragrance for "fine gentlemen". Launched in a black bottle with wide and reassuring shoulders, Sagamore, was then accompanied by a communication created by Serge Gainsbourg who shot the advertisement's black and white photography.
The utterly timeless fragrance opens with a blend of icy spices (cardamom), distinguished citrus fruit (bergamot) and iconic rustic notes (lavender).
Once again, Lancome has dared to add flowers to an essence for men: jasmine and geranium refreshed with astringent ginger. However, this noble woody fragrance, which could complement either a poet explorer or a gentleman in the forest, offers more than mere freshness.
It takes its audience into the shadowy undergrowth where the damp ground merges with dry bark and dark foliage. A magnificient scent with an overdose of vetivier, moss and benzoin notes - an essential rediscovery.
The bottle is a pared-down, contemporary reinterpretation of the early 1960s glass bottle designed by artist Georges Delhomme, a key figure in the creation of Lancôme’s first fragrances. Transparent and refined, it allows the preciously coloured elixirs encapsulated within to be exalted by light. A most precious case dressed in fine golden lines, an object of luxury and signature French refinement.
