Number Six | 88ml EDP
This spectacular fragrance is the longest continuously manufactured fragrance in America, created in 1772 and exclusively produced from the original formulation in Caswell-Massey’s archives. It features a bright opening of sparkling bergamot, rosemary, and neroli which evolve into a warm, enveloping heart of rose, clove, and golden amber. A complex accord of white musk and premium-harvest lavender provides the perfect finish to the scent.
A magnificent Eau de Parfum that exhibits its timeless, classic American roots in the aromatic and citrus notes while the musk and amber bring the scent exuberantly into the present. Crafted with cruelty-free plant-based components and over 90% natural and sustainably produced oils, this is a creation worthy of our ‘Supernatural’ designation.
This edition of Number Six was re-mastered in 2018 by perfumer Laurent Le Guernec, who selected floral and herbal varieties true to the types of oils available when the fragrance was originally created and combined these with newly available molecular captures, distillation, and blending techniques. The result is a creation that brings out the most modern and beautiful characteristics of this scent while retaining its unique, supremely American signature. A favorite of Presidents George Washington and John Quincy Adams, Buffalo Bill Cody, George Gershwin, and countless other iconic wearers across many generations.

Being a amateur historian of the American Revolution, I can imagine that my discovering Caswell-Massey's No. VI was only a matter of time. The fact that Washington, himself, used the original way back in 1780 was exciting and intriguing, but when I tried it only a few short weeks ago, the fragrance, itself, captivated me. The revolution of my fragrance choices have narrowed, since I've been using this exclusively for a month, and have made 2 more purchases, one for me in reserve, and one as a gift for that special someone in my life. Caswell-Massey's No. VI has me for life!
For years I used Number 6 in its previous formulation, including the shave/body talc which is no longer available. When Number VI Supernatural was introduced I immediately tried it. What an awesome scent! It is the only cologne I wear, and the only bar soap I use every time I shower. It would great if you could produce and market a shave/body powder. in this fragrance
Excellent. My wife’s says that it is her favorite cologne, that I wear.
Number 6 is excellent great and long lasting. I bought the soap to pair with it.
