Crafted from the personal cologne of master perfumer Maurice Roucel, Uncut Gem is an unabashedly masculine fragrance—sharp as a diamond and exceptionally fresh. The journey begins with crisp, spicy top notes of ginger, bergamot, mandarin, angelica root, and nutmeg, leading to the smoldering heart: a leathery accord, vetiver, frankincense, abundant amber, and a musk that resonates with the skin. This scent challenges conventional masculine norms, extracting their primal strength to fashion something exquisite and irresistible.
Maurice Roucel initiated his career as a chemist at Chanel's Fragrance Laboratory in 1973. A self-taught perfumer who identifies as an "explorer wandering amidst formulas," his style embodies a sensuous aesthete, and his signature lies in lavish compositions, retaining only the essential elements.
