Penhaligon’s has decide to tease and tantalize us with a brand new gourmand fragrance that will inspired by the English tradition of afternoon tea. The fragrance will also draw inspiration from transitions, specifically the time of the day when day turns into evening and the thaw when cold winter finally gives way for spring.
Created by Master Perfumer Olivier Cresp, the fragrance is called Equinox Bloom and will feature an olfactory palette inspired by the quintessentially English tradition of afternoon tea, and the transitional moment when day turns to evening and when cold Winter yields to Spring. Expect notes of Chantilly, Frangipani and Brown Sugar blended with violet leaves, orange blossom absolute and jasmine sambac, with Benzoin Siam and Ambrox.
During one of my recent visits to London, I enjoyed an incredible brunch in a smart, refined place, where the magnificent atmosphere of the rooms, furnished with opulent floral compositions, ensnared my senses almost at once. While admiring the floral scenery, my brunch included delightful toasts topped with honey and marmalade and these gourmand facets inspired me to bring to Equinox Bloom a trendy, modern inflexion to the generous floral bouquet. To me, this luxurious and abundant refinement reflects Penhaligon’s generosity in fragrances in a perfect ways.
The fragrance will feature top notes of Chantilly, Neroli Bigarade Essence, Violet leaves, Absolute; heart notes of Frangipani, Orange blossom absolute, Jasmine Sambac absolute and base notes of Brown Sugar accord and Oriental richness of Benzoin Siam and Ambrox.
