Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene Review
Description
It doesn’t take a complicated scent profile to appreciate the classic that is Grey Flannel. It is simple in composition, as well as in packaging, but that is no reason to undermine it. Grey Flannel has a well-blended mixture of lemon, sage, sandalwood, iris, and tonka bean whose strengths are emphasized by the presence of violet, which is not too sweet in this fragrance. It is easy to wear, not to mention very affordable, but those could potentially belie its classiness.

Geoffrey Beene’s classic Grey Flannel was released in 1975, more than 40 years ago now, but remains in production and can be bought at a really affordable price. Andre Fromentin is credited for creating this well-blended concoction of galbanum, petitgrain, bergamot, lemon, neroli, mimosa, violet, sage, iris, geranium, tonka bean, oakmoss, cedar and almond put into a no-frills, deep green bottle.
