The power of a scent is not to be underestimated; a waft of the right perfume can take a your personal style to a new level in seconds. However, selecting the right fragrance for the right occasion is crucial for it’s appreciation. Your choice of fragrance should reflect your personality and whether you are in the boardroom, taking time off or going out.
With head notes of fresh Juniper berries (also used in Gin), the fragrance Juniper Sling brings a tribute to the roaring 1920s. Think crisp evening-elegance. It first teases with aromatic Angelica (root and seed). The heart next races to the vitality of cinnamon, pepper and cardamon. Orris creates a smooth melody of softer cherry-woods. Notes of leather, brandy – a liqorous, vigorous base – hit the spot.
Lothair, a fragrance as novel as the sight of land on the horizon, and at the same time as reassuring as – tea.
Whether at sail on the High Seas or at home in one’s private London Club, refreshments are essential. The British penchant for gin and tea is renowned and well-known. From notes of a fresh gin-grapefruit tonic, it settles into a fig and black-tea signature. The scent is progressively smooth with hints of magnolia and lavender. Ultimately it turns daring and dark with trials of debonair woods (cedarwood, wenge).
The night fragrance, Endymion Concentre. Named after Endymion, Zeus’s most handsome son. A Greek God in a perpetual slumber, forever young. He was in the night visited by Luna, his divine consort, she who loved him so.
The fragrance reflects passion, love and loyalty. The perfect companion for the easy-going gentleman. The scent is based on elegant hues of geranium, lavender and mandarin, nutmeg, resins and suede. A demi-lune, a semi-oriental.
Yours sincerely, Mathias le Fèvre
