The fragrance for Men Quatre from Maison Boucheron
Nevertheless, Boucheron now occupies another sector: that of perfumery. However, there is sometimes only a step between these two worlds. Thus, Boucheron decided to decline one of its iconic rings in a duo of perfumes. It is therefore more precisely the Quatre pour Homme fragrance that we will focus on here.
When a ring becomes an iconic male fragrance for Boucheron
Quatre Homme is a perfume that adopts the same name as one of the most famous rings from the Boucheron house. In addition, this alone brings together several emblematic techniques of the brand. As its name suggests, the Quatre ring brings together four rings, each of which comes from a particular technique. The first of these is an assembly of two gold rings to form a Double Godrons. This technique was invented in 1889. The second ring forms the Clous de Paris motif, very inspired by Parisian pavers and minutely chiseled by hand by the master jewelers of the Boucheron house. The third ring, meanwhile, is covered with diamonds in their paved version. Thus, the latter trap the light on a base of polished gold. This know-how is made possible thanks to the “mirror setting” technique, an exclusive know-how signed by Boucheron. Finally, the whole is further enhanced by a Gros Grain motif, a true masterpiece of goldsmithing. Also, like this exceptional jewel, the Quatre Homme perfume reveals itself through multiple facets. He has a very assertive personality allied to a sensitivity that reveals itself in the background. Her temperament is absolutely fascinating, making the man who wears this scent particularly seductive.

Four Male, Boucheron’s woody fern
In order to meet the challenge of interpreting a piece of jewelry as famous as this one, Boucheron called on the perfumer Christophe Raynaud. He then chose to work around the theme of the fern, a great classic of men’s perfumery. Nevertheless, he added all the know-how that we know of the Boucheron house. Quatre Homme is first animated by a fresh and biting beam of light. It combines bergamot and lime for a most invigorating result. Then, its heart opens with a more vegetal facet of violet leaves enriched by explosive aromas of mugwort. This ingredient here unleashes a powerful masculinity. Then, Quatre Homme suddenly wants to be more reassuring. It returns to authentic flavors of men’s perfumery like lavender. Geranium is also very elegant while displaying a touch of spicy impertinence. The whole then evolves towards woody notes. Quatre Homme ends with the vibration of patchouli associated with driftwood and labdanum. The Quatre ring, for its part, sits proudly at the top of its bottle. It is available here in the form of a cabochon containing a precious fragrance.
Quatre Men, the Boucheron masculine fragrance
Released in 2015, “Four for Homme ”follows the success of its female counterpart released in 2004. If the fragrance was daringly feminine,“ Quatre pour Homme ”has kept the same daring edge. Here, the iconic Boucheron ring has a modern and masculine shape to perfection. “Quatre pour Homme” is the perfect balance between a heritage of tradition and modernity. Similar to a work of art, the case of “Quatre pour Homme” reflects an ultra-luminous pale blue. Both intrepid and traditional, the composition of “Quatre pour Homme” is by Christophe Raynaud.
Christophe Raynaud, the elegance of Quatre pour Homme
A graduate of the ISIPCA perfume school, Christophe Raynaud joined the Créations Aromatique company (now Symrise), a company where he had worked on a work-study basis during his apprenticeship. Christophe Raynaud now works for Firmenich. Christophe Raynaud is a talented and passionate perfumer. He loves working with beautiful materials. We owe to Christophe Raynaud great olfactory successes such as “Yes I Am” by Cacharel, “Luna” by Nina Ricci or “La Nuit Trésor” by Lancôme.
Quatre for Men by Boucheron, elegance as a heritage
“Quatre pour Homme” takes off on the liveliness and freshness of a sun-drenched lemon, a lemon that will pair with violet leaves. The origin of the lemon is uncertain as some claim it comes from China and others from India. Nevertheless, we find the first traces of lemon, 3,000 years ago, when it was only a citron. From the 1st century, lemon was used by the Greeks and Romans for its medicinal properties. In the 10th century, it was even mainly used to fight fever. There are not many varieties of lemon today. In perfumery, lemon essence is used. It gives off fruity, zesty and sweet tones. Although it is a masculine composition, the heart of “Quatre pour Homme” is filled with femininity thanks to the presence of jasmine and rose. Finally, the base is deeper and more sensual and combines patchouli, cashmere wood and musks. Also called “cashmeran”, cashmere wood is a molecule synthetically reproduced in the laboratory. The cashmere wood note has been registered by the company IFF (International Flavors & amp; Fragrances). This is a recent note since it was discovered in 1970. Cashmere wood actually evokes an imaginary wood, filled with sensuality. Used for the first time by Givenchy in 1990, cashmere wood gives off warm, bewitching, balsamic and woody tones. We find the sleek solid glass bottle, “Quatre pour Femme” bottle. The bottle is of course topped with a cabochon in the shape of the legendary Boucheron ring. As transparent as it is luminous, glass offers us a magical setting, similar to a precious jewel.
