How would you like to join the French Legion of Honor? Okay, well at least smell like its lowest rank that of Chevalier or a knight. It may not sound that glamorous, but to smell like the lowest level of French nobility is no laughing matter. Founded by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 the Legion of Honor, open to men of all ranks and professions,
was formed to recognize military and government service . Unlike orders of Monarchy, the Legion of Honor recognizes members only on account of merit and bravery.
The institution exists to this day with the current Grand Master being Nicolas Sarkozy the President of the French Republic. You may not achieve his aromatic level however you can capture the sweet scent of Chevalier by D’OSAY at Thompson Alchemists in Soho NYC. The fragrance definitely deserves merit with its soothing cinnamon and invigorating cardamom which bring out the well earned feeling of Chevalier.
