Maai by Bogue is a beautiful chypre with a modern retro vibe-full. Intense without ever becoming cloying. Maai is truly rich, it is a perfume with grandeur.
“I cannot overstate the joy that smelling something like this provides. It’s like sitting in the front row at the Vienna Philharmonic after listening to two months’ worth of ringtones: the sound is so glorious you don’t care if they play Die Fledermaus. And Maai is far better than that even, a big-boned, animalic woody chypre seemingly laden with every magnificent material we knew and loved before the End of History set in”. – Perfume Critic Luca Turin about Maai. What more can we say!

Antonio Gardoni, architect and self-taught perfumer, has a unique avant-garde style that is easily detectable in the fragrances from his brand: Bogue Profumo. Each of his creations is unique. Some with a vintage dirty vibe and others with an ultra modern, pleasantly disturbing touch. "I work at night when the light doesn’t adulterate the chemicals and when the smells of the day disappears to leave space to new experiments of shadows.” - Antonio Gardoni
A classic chypre is characterized by top notes of citrus, often bergamot; a full-floral heart, like jasmine and rose; and mossy, woody notes in the base, such as patchouli, oak moss, and labdanum. For those who appreciate fragranced complexity and layered compositions, chypres are very exciting and worthwhile to explore!
