Guerlain has launched two new fragrances for men, Arsène Lupin Dandy and Arsène Lupin Voyou, inspired by the fictional "gentleman thief" Arsène Lupin, from the series of books by Maurice Leblanc. Lupin is sometimes called the French Sherlock Holmes.
The fragrances, which can be worn alone or layered, were created by perfumer Jean-Paul Guerlain, who said he created Arsène Lupin for himself, and that it was “perhaps the last fragrance I will create".

Arsène Lupin Voyou (above right) ~ a woody aromatic with bigarade, coriander, peppercorn, sandalwood, patchouli, rose, musk and benzoin.
Guerlain Arsène Lupin Dandy and Arsène Lupin Voyou join the Parfums Exclusifs collection, and will be in limited distribution. They will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, 165€ each. (quote via wwd, additional information via thestandard.com.hk, mode.glamourparis, osmoz.fr)
