For its first gourmand fragrance Penhaligon’s London turns to master perfumer Olivier Cresp, (the nose behind both Juniper Sling and Peonove to capture the quintessentially English tradition of afternoon tea, and the transitional moment when day turns to evening and when cold Winter yields to Spring.
"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 way." – Olivier Cresp, Perfumer.
Equinox Bloom plays with an olfactory palette inspired by the delights of high tea, gourmand notes of Chantilly and Brown Sugar are intertwined with floral narcotic notes of Frangipani, orange blossom absolute and jasmine sambacwith nuance of violet leaves, resting upon deep ambery Oriental richness of Benzoin Siam and Ambrox.
