So what does it smell like? I have no published notes on this fragrance.
If this is a competitor to the Chevalier de la Nuit fragrance, it may have smelled similar. Chevalier de l Nuit had notes of tuberose, gardenia and jasmine.
Sir Gallahad was presented in a simple clear glass perfume bottle with frosted floral stopper by Rene Lalique. The bottle is molded with "R. Lalique." This bottle was also used for other Isabey perfumes: Chypre Celtique, À Travers la Voilette as well as for the Marcel Guerlain perfume, Ambre.
Fate of the Fragrance:
The resurrected Parfums Isabey company (which by the way, makes excellent perfumes) has released Sir Gallahad, this time as a scent for men. The newly made Eau de Parfum debuted in 2017 and is classified as a woody fragrance for men with notes of woods, tobacco and flowers. The cologne was created by Takasago perfumers Jean Jacques and Catherine Selig. I am unsure if this new fragrance has any connection to the original 1924 as I do not have the notes for the antique version.
