Something Fragrant

From Aspinal of London.

The renowned British luxury leather goods brand has a new string to its bow. In collaboration with perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur, this spring sees the label release a new range of scents: created with the same exquisite craftsmanship that goes into its luxury accessories. Here’s our overview of this exciting activation — available now at Aspinal of London’s Royal Exchange store.

Musky Fig is a captivating and alluring fragrance, especially in how the opening vibrant zest of tangerine and bergamot intertwines with the sweetness of blackcurrant. It’s a dynamic, traditionally masculine scent, but the fragrance has a beguiling universal appeal — created for both him and her.

At the heart, fig leaves blend harmoniously with the aromatic essence of cardamom, evoking a sense of refreshing greenness. As the scent unfolds, a velvety accord of fig milk and musk wraps you in a comforting embrace, while the deep warmth of vetiver leaves a lingering and irresistible trail.

Alongside this and Green Rose, Ochre Spice offers what the brand calls an enchanting “journey of delights” — where “a symphony of scents dance with the allure of spices.”

Fresh and spicy notes of cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg are enriched by the subtle smoke and earthiness of tobacco leaves and vanilla, creating a warm and intoxicating unisex scent that captivates the senses.
