Diana Dors switches on the television and Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ casts a flickering, milky glow across the darkened room. Her platinum hair falling over fleshy shoulders, she slips the stiletto blade back into its sheath, leans back into the overstuffed leather couch and closes her eyes… Her dream unfurls in monochrome, stark, shimmering and endlessly beautiful, as she leaves behind the clatter of crowded city streets and finds herself in a vast expanse of rich, tilled, fertile land. She smells motor oil and hedgerows, electricity and swailed fields, petrichor and polished steel.
Notes and Scent Development
SILVERWOOD is the careful balance of sharp, metropolitan modernity and comforting, aged, agrarian traditions. It conjures the smoky excitement of 21st Century cityscapes and yet harks back to an era of pastoral earthiness, pitching the organic alongside the metallic. Razor edged top notes of tungsten, ozone and bright, freshly picked tea gradually make way for rich, sticky labdanum, damp oakmoss, sweet coumarin, sour rosehips, rain-soaked broom and a distant breath of jasmine before settling into a depth-charge of mud, bark, cordite, tarmac and civet. The fragrance opens with the chime of bells, overflows with a moist bounty and then resonates with the low, deep growl of machinery and stalking predators. SILVERWOOD exudes a voluptuous warmth and smiles with a cool, steely gaze.
Male or female, the bold, daring lover of SILVERWOOD understands the endless contradictions of modern life. Excitable, assured, epicurean and educated, the SILVERWOOD wearer is poised but pleasure seeking, conservative but questing, libidinous and joyously liberal.
SILVERWOOD is clearly a niche brand that revels in modern, contemporary luxury. With no heritage to rest upon, the brand takes pride in innovation and pleasure in refinement and traditionalism. SILVERWOOD is sincere – it admires its own consumers as much as it aspires to greatness. SILVERWOOD is welcoming and inclusive but recognises that it is very much an acquired taste. The brand celebrates its individuality, wearing strangeness as a badge of honour.
