The conceptualization for Grey Stone Castle began when perfumer Mark St. Marie was a freshman in college rushing fraternities. He toured many grand and mysterious homes where soon-to-be very powerful men had once roamed the halls. However, none captivated him more than the Grey Stone Castle, the nickname for the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.
The desire to walk in the footsteps of those who are (or were) successful in all realms of life is the key to wearing Grey Stone Castle, as it gives you the feeling that you can become one of them. It is a very strong and long-lasting fragrance which exudes class and sophistication, yet is playful enough to easily wear during the day.
Like other TWIS fragrances, Grey Stone Castle was built around a long-aged all-natural core. The building blocks of GSC are Indian and Hawaiian sandalwood, dark vetiver and patchouli, three types of cedarwood, Turkish rose, lemongrass and other naturals. Aging this core for over two years resulted in an ostentatious and pretentious swirling core of very high longevity and projection.
If you want to get noticed for smelling great and like nothing else on the market, then Grey Stone Castle is for you, as it casts an assertive and very pleasant aura.
Grey Stone Castle can be worn all seasons, both at work and for nights out on the town. It is the most multi-functional TWIS fragrance.
