And Here’s To You, Mrs. Robinson


humiecki and graef geste

Fragrance is often a personal affair, but I think I found a scent that Mrs. Robinson from The Graduate (i.e., Anne Bancroft) could get into. Geste—from the luxury line Humiecki & Graef, a recent arrival in the U.S. by German perfumers Christophe Laudamiel and Christoph Hornetz—was created with the cougar in mind. An olfactory tryst between soft amber and musk (meant to represent a “young man’s skin”), with wild pine resin and violet notes, the eau was designed to evoke the notion of intensity. To be more specific: the intensity that exists in a relationship between a “mature” woman and her male conquest. After spritzing this unique blend, we can only imagine this phrase being uttered by Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman): “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me. Aren’t you?”
