Cutting Edge Savoir Faire

Yatagan – a Turkish sword used in Turkey from the 16th to the 19th centuries. They were
both weapons and works of art, incorporating elegant lines, and occasionally encrusted with semi-precious stones.

Yatagan – a male perfume launched by that esteemed Parisian perfume house of Caron in 1976. With a name that conjures up all the mystique and masculinity of the near east, Yatagan is elegant and discrete with a punch!

This is almost the definitive perfect cologne for men! (and women if they are feeling adventurous). The aromatics cut the air like a knife and then dry down to an incredibly sexy, almost pungent smell, that will see you continually sniffing your wrist just to remind you how incredible this is. Don’t be put off by the initial bitterness of the wormwood (another ingredient in Campari) as this has been offset with the brilliant composition of lavender and vetiver.

Other components are, Petitgrain, Patchouli and Leather.

I am closely guarding my retail source here in Toronto, however seek and ye shall find!


  1. I typically wear male fragrances...the women's are always to floral and girly. I'll have to try this out. I'm glad your back!

  2. Now I'm intrigued...although, I'm always hesitant to order a scent online.

    SO glad you're back!

  3. I have worn Yatagan since it was introduced and really have found nothing else that compares. Cartier's eau concentree--a completely different ambiance-- is also a favorite

  4. Explore, I am so glad that someone else loves this. You are right there is absolutely no comparison!
