Chris Bartlett of the Shropshire perfume house, Pell Wall, will be following up his 2012 limited edition 1953 Parfum with two new fragrances, to be released on 2nd June - 1953 Eau de Toilette and 1953 Pour Homme.
Released to coincide with the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, the fragrances are inspired by the specially made coronation oil used in the ceremony. The ingredients for this have remained mostly unchanged since the 12th century, and include ambergris, civet, rose, jasmine, orange flower, cinnamon, musk and benzoin.
1953 Pour Homme has a ‘lighter, fresher tone’ than the original, with masculine notes of tobacco and cedar, whilst 1953 Eau de Toilette is very similar to the Parfum, with emphasis on the neroli top notes and rose heart. All products are hand-made on the premises at Pell Wall Perfumes.
The original 1953 Parfum was a limited edition released last year for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Available until the end of 2013, it costs £69 for a heart-shaped crystal flacon and refill totalling 10ml.
1953 Pour Homme costs £79 for 100ml, which comes in a hand decorated, wood-clad bottle, and 1953 Eau de Toilette is available with a gold puffer as a limited edition, but will remain available in black and silver versions, at £53 for 50ml.
