Bentley’s Beyond The Collection presents three new fragrances which follow the previous editions: Majestic Cashmere, Exotic Musk and Wild Vetiver from last year, en Rich Pimento from early this Year.
Now a new trio of scents marks the first female collection from Bentley Fragrances, inspired by exotic flowers which express different personas in scent, colour and emotion. The new creations are: Mellow Heliotrope, Radiant Osmanthus, and Vibrant Hibiscus. Born in Grasse, the world’s perfume capital, master perfumer Karine Dubreuil Sereni composed this beautiful trio of fragrances.
Celebrating the proud heritage of the Bentley Girls, these three unique perfumes interpret individual characteristics of unique flowers, expressing the character of the exceptional women who wear them. Satisfying appreciation of high-quality materials, meticulous craftsmanship and originality – the fragrances are a true individual statement of personalities.
Bentley Mellow Heliotrope
I adore heliotrope. To me, it is one of the most feminine notes in the perfumer’s palette. But though it is extremely feminine, it is elegant rather than provocative. When I composed it, I imagined a soft, sensual woman who wants a scent that is delicately enveloping yet very diffusive and unforgettable.

The amazing grace of Mellow Heliotrope: a delicately powdery scent for the sensitive, softly sensual woman who thrives in intimate situations.
Top notes: Italian bergamot, mandarin orange, cassis, gardenia
Middle notes: raspberry, pink pepper, elemi resin
Base notes: heliotrope, violet leaves, ambrette, vanilla, praline
Expressing a sweet and compelling character is Heliotrope, a purple Mediterranean flower with a soft vanilla and anise scent. To complement these softly sensual scents, the perfumer has picked a palette of pink of purple notes – opening with a crisp blackcurrant bud, accented with pink pepper. A hint of strawberry with vanilla and praline enhance Mellow Heliotrope’s subtly romantic blends, leaving an elegant and unforgettable trail.
Bentley Radiant Osmanthus
The woman I envisioned when I composed Radiant Osmanthus is self-confident and joyful, but never ostentatious. She exudes charm naturally. For me, the apricot colour and scent of the Osmanthus flower reflect her sunny character, while its suede facet express her inner depth.

The sparkling charm of Radiant Osmanthus: a joyful fruity floral for the lively, luminous woman who brightens every room she walks in with her inner light.
Top notes: neroli, Italian mandarin, lemon
Middle notes: osmanthus, wild jasmine, peach
Base notes: cedarwood, white amber, sandalwood, musk
Radiant Osmanthus opens with radiant notes of neroli and citrus, giving an elegant dose of refreshment to the fruity, apricot aromas of osmanthus, which is additionally sweetened with peach in the heart. The base combines creamy woody notes and subtle musk.
Bentley Vibrant Hibiscus
I had to invent the scent of hibiscus, since there is no extract, so I drew my inspiration from the intensity of its colour and the fragility of its corolla. Between the lushness of a Turkish rose and the freshness of peony, my hibiscus accord expresses the contrasts of a passionate woman’s personality.

The flamboyant style of Vibrant Hibiscus: an exuberant floral for the exciting, self-confident woman who sparks up passions wherever she goes.
Top notes: cassis, Italian bergamot, mandarin orange, violet leaves
Middle notes: hibiscus, red peony, jasmine, Damask rose, lily-of-the-valley
Base notes: sandalwood, Indonesian patchouli, musk, moss
A tropical beauty that thrives in the sun, the flamboyant hibiscus reflects her vibrant character. The scent opens with a dab of cassis and Italian mandarin, trickling into a lush floral heart of scarlet peony, crimson Turkish rose and a pink hibiscus accord, with the heady sensuousness of jasmine as a contrast to the fiery palette. Exotic sandalwood and Indonesian patchouli underline the assertive yet elegant character of Vibrant Hibiscus in the warm, sensual drydown.
The faceted flacons are inspired by the signature cut-crystal glass headlights of the Continental GT and subtly tinted in a soft mauve hue to mirror the character of the fragrance. The Bentley emblem is engraved on the silver metal, with soft-touch suede in the same colour of each fragrance as the finishing touch on the lid.
