Miller Harris - SCHERZO
A fragrance inspired by a passage of text in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night, Scherzo has become a modern classic and bestseller.
Perfect for the warmer days it has a fruity sparkling, sweet tangerine opening followed by liquor drenched roses and narcissus and earthy patchouli with a delicious sweetness infused in it. Powerful and delicate at the same time.
Maison Rebatchi - Jasmin Satin
Jasmin Satin is a Mediterranean summer night in a bottle. Bold and warm jasmine notes blend with a sandy beach vibes all wrapped up in a musky cloud; pure bliss! Using two varieties of jasmine from India and Egypt, perfumer Karine Dubreuil created the illusion of delicate freshness intertwined with a voluptuous soul enhanced by wood.
Alexandre J - Majestic Nard
For a collection exclusive to Harrods, French perfume label Alexandre J created five fragrances exceptionally unique. The Majestic Nard, inspired by the mighty lion and its symbolism of courage, power and freedom is a bold combination of smoky incense and sparkling pink pepper laid on a woody base of creamy sandalwood and earthy patchouli.
Stories Parfums - No2
A walk in the garden, barefoot, this perfume brings nature closer and the feeling of belonging. No.2 opens with notes of Bergamot and Bulgarian rose spiced with ginger, cardamom and green tea. It's heart is warm, woody and smoky with notes of honey tobacco and cedarwood. Opoponax, tonka bean and patchouli enhance the base while amber and musk soften it until it fades away hours later.
Lalique - Infinite Shine
Rich and warm with a flamboyant combination of rose, sandalwood and saffron Infinite Shine uses the molecule safranal to adds a spicy / leathery Middle - Eastern feel to the fragrance, while crimson red roses are enhancing the feel before creamy sandalwood adds a soft golden glow to the fiery fragrance. A gorgeous combination of warmth, edible notes and lush roses enjoyed under a golden sunset.
Le Couvent De Minimes - SMYRNA
The olfactory journey of Smyrna begins with a vibrant bergamot and citrus blend before a fully bloomed Turkish rose appears dressed in a velvety robe and sprinkled in a cloud of zingy pepper that adds an element of mystery. The creamy and woody drydown enhances the voluptuousness of the rose that acquires an almost liqueur like quality and becomes one with the skin making you feel like you're bathing in milk infused with rose petals; simply divine!
Bentley - Mellow Heliotrope
Mellow Heliotrope, a soft, powdery, floral scent, by perfumer Karine Dubreuil Sereni, is part of a trio of fragrances celebrating women and far flung destinations. With essence of Heliotrope, blackcurrant, vanilla, praline and strawberry it's a mellow and creamy fragrance with a light tart twist.
Escentric Molecules - Molecule 01 + Mandarin
A warm zesty and sunny fragrance where the warmth and coziness of ISO E Super blends wonderfully with the freshness and juiciness of mandarin and their match gives a scent that’s like a warm ray of sunshine! Spring can’t come soon enough!
Juliette Has A Gun - PEAR INC
Pear Inc. feels like the bite of a juicy pear, the scent released into the air as you tear through it's green flesh. It mellows very quickly thanks to the musks mentioned before and to me paints a picture of my favorite pear dessert; a poached pear, drizzled in liquor and served hot with ice cream. There's also a boozy feel like pear schnapps in the background and the scent of a soft musky summertime breeze.
A true taste of sunshine…
Maison Crivelli - Iris Malikhan
inspired by lilies growing at the edge of the desert. The image of purple lilies rooted deep in the desert floor sprinkled by golden sand and swayed in a soft breeze comes to mind and the fragrance really complements it. Imagine creamy, powdery florals dusted off with gunpowder to add edge and a chewy vanilla accord wearing a soft suede jacket.
Stay tuned for part 2!
