Manos Gerakinis Parfums
Manos Gerakinis is a young Greek entrepreneur & founder of Closet on the Go whose travels and large collection of fragrances made him seek a signature scent with this vision; he wanted the wearer to become the pole of attraction for those around him and to be remembered long after gone. The vision became a perfume that had such great success that he finally decided to release it to the market. Soon many more fragrances followed, all of which have very loyal following.
The first trio of perfumes belongs to the Sillage line:
Sillage Royal, is Manos’s signature scent, a rich oriental fragrance.
Top Notes: Smoke Note, Cardamon, Saffron, Curcuma
Heart Notes: Persian Rose, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Oud
Base Notes: Musk, Amber Notes, Balsamic
A true powerhouse, with rich smoky, spicy opening, followed by lush roses and velvety patchouli and completed by a balsamic woody drydown enriched by lavish oud.
Sillage Suave is a spicy woody fragrance.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Bitter green Galbanum, Pink Peppercorn
Heart Notes: Angelica, Galbanum Resin, Orris, Guaiac Wood
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedar wood, Oud, Musk
It opens bright and citrusy with a dash of herbs and very smoothly moves to a powdery soft heart enhanced by precious woods. It’s very versatile fragrance that I enjoyed wearing very much.
Sillage Galant is a fresh and contemporary luxury fragrance
Top Notes: Bergamot, Saffron, Oud
Heart Notes: Cardamom, Rice, Geranium, Jasmine
Base Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Musk, Leather, Oud
My favourite of all three, a mix of spices and sweet powdery notes that become one with you skin while sweet patchouli and soft sandalwood mingle with supple leather and fluffy musk for extra comfort.
The next 2 perfumes belong to the Parfums de Jour collection. The key characteristic of the collection is versatility. Fine Fragrances with deep, soft notes to wear from day to night and throughout the year.
Pivoine is a rich bouquet of flowers with peonies in a leading role that invites us for a romantic walk in a blossomed garden.
Top Notes: Red apple
Heart Notes: peony, jasmine, carnation, rose
Base Notes: Suede
An explosion of fresh, blooming, spring flowers, sweet and intoxicating with exceptional projection and very long lasing. The scent lingers on your skin, like a bouquet and softens with the addition of the most delicate suede note.
Immortelle is a sweet and passionate perfume. Its main ingredient immortelle is found in the Greek nature and it is believed that it brings good luck.
Top Notes: Clove, Cinnamon
Heart Notes: Immortelle, Milk
Base Notes: Brown Sugar, Benzoin, Sandalwood, Patchouli
Dry and aromatic with the addition of a milky sweet element that balances out the dryness of immortelle and gives it another dimension. Sandalwood and patchouli add depth to the composition while brown sugar a sweet spicy vibe.
Quintessence is a delicate woody oriental fragrance and is part of the Haute Parfums line.
Top Notes: Saffron, Clove, Black pepper
Heart Notes: Davana, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Agarwood

A crowd pleaser. Spices and woods equally and masterfully blended to bring out a fragrance that suits everyone and every mood. The soft and sweet vanillic drydown is guaranteed to leave an unforgettable trail.
