About Infusion

As far as we know, this was the first alcoholic drink / perfume crossover. Created using similar ingredients to Bombay Sapphire Gin, this scent was available exclusively at duty-free shops, and only available as a GWP.

Infusion fragrance notes

Reviews of Infusion

This is a charming little scent. It was a marketing bonus, a lagniappe, when one bought a half-litre of Bombay Gin at duty-free. It has been discontinued but is quite available on ebay.
It has a light, breezy opening with pretty good lemon peel notes. There is a hint of almond flower, which goes well with the coriander. Essentially it smells like a good gin, with all of the nice aromatic notes but not any heavy boozy ones. The juniper is bright and invigorating. It could be even stronger but it is nice. The little blue bottle is pretty.

Bombay Sapphire's Infusion.............you are a beauty!

To me it paints a picture of a lite sparkling essence that bubbles upwards and is far from heavy.

The note I pick up on the most is JUNIPER berries(a big exlamation mark here)........

Unfortunately this sweet, but not too sweet, fragrance is gone after a couple of hours.

This may sound dumb but it sort of smells like the color of the Bombay Sapphire drink, a COOL blue and some green somewhere in there.

In closing: Go out and get yourself one of these bottles because I'm guessing they are not making it anymore. I even emailed the company and.............no reply!

A pleasant gin-like scent. Not much in terms of development, but a refreshing option for juniper lovers.

Make it 8 positive reviews!
Yes it does smell exactly like Bombay Sapphire Gin.
What a great idea for the summer, most refreshing.
Just hope you don't get pulled over by a cop :)

Very interesting scent.

I don't drink alcohol, but always liked the smell of this gin.
Yes, it has the classic juniper smell that all gins do, only juniper of a higher quality, and such delicious lemony almond/spice smoothness. And a very refreshing tonic note. Not the same tonic note used in Versace Eau Fraiche and Quercus, this "tonic" is higher quality!
Also has some of the sour yet smooth citric notes str8 outta Allure Edition Blanche.
Surprisingly does not have an overly synthetic olfactory profile.
Very very good, so I stocked up.

I smell the almonds. A nutty, boozy accord that feels like an acquatic (without the saltiness). A fresh good feeling from this scent.
