The dry-down is complex, with musk, myrrh, and a smooth balance of herbal notes. It’s a modern scent with a classic soul, worthy of the moniker “Supernatural.”
This rich history in combination with the deep tones of this scent, let a serious impression on us. We had to share this product!
MADE PROUDLY IN: USA
'Formula Number Six Toilette Water' was created in 1772 by Dr. William Hunter, a Scottish Doctor living in Newport, RI and the original founder of Caswell-Massey. To this day, it is regarded as the first American Fragrance and the third oldest continuously produced scent in modern perfumery.
Dr. Hunter had access in the busy trading town of Newport to all the best European imports of rare and exotic oils and ingredients from around the world. He also had a taste for European luxuries from his travels, and a belief that 'foul air' was a source of malaise and that Perfumes had a place as both a remedy and a luxury for his customers.
He developed several fragrance formulations, of which Number Six is the most widely known and well documented due to its commercial success: Number Six was 'discovered' in Caswell-Massey’s Newport apothecary shop by George Washington in 1780, who became an instant fan of the scent and a persistent customer. President Washington wore this scent and gave both Number Six and the Newport Apothecary shop notoriety, famously gifting a case of Number Six to the Marquis de Lafayette.
Over the years, the formula continued to be quite popular, and was passed down through the various owners of the brand, including Charles Feke, Rowland Hazard, Philip Caswell and William Massey, and the Taylors of New York. Over time, the formula was changed in subtle ways based on the availability of the many ingredients, the skill and tastes of the chemists and perfumers, and the styles of the times.
In 2017, Caswell-Massey set a goal to create a formulation of Number Six that would be true to the original in its use of the most exquisite and expensive oils. Caswell-Massey also set a goal to use natural oils for the formulation, to use 'For Life' certified oils when possible, to use the types of floral and herbal distillations that would have been available at the time of its creation, and to find the best plant-based replacements for the animal ingredients (Musk and Ambergris) that would ensure the modern scent is true to the original scent.
Supernatural Number Six is the result of this year-long process, months of research, trial and error and dozens of iterations working with an incredible team of perfumers lead by IFF's Laurent LeGuernec. A remarkable scent that is every bit as beautiful and luxurious today as it was when it was introduced.
