    Default New: Theo Fennell Scent.

    From WWD.com

    London jeweler Theo Fennell has launched his first fragrance in the UK this month.

    Name: Theo Fennell Scent
    Brand: Theo Fennell (Juniper)
    Nose: Christophe Laudamiel (IFF)
    Bottle designer: Theo Fennell



    Theo Fennell Scent is a chypre oriental:
    top: saffron, cardamom, lily, rose and orchid
    heart: jasmine sambac, orange flower, cumin and cinnamon
    base: patchouli, tonka bean, labdanum, sandalwood and benzoin

    "I wanted something very specific, very nocturnal in mood, heavy and sexy a scent that makes a statement," Theo Fennell said. "It's not the equivalent of a little black dress; it is something you make your mind up to put on."

    Exclusive to Harrods and Fennell's London flagship. International launch this fall.

    wow, cedric, those notes sound very compelling.

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Thanks for the heads up, Cedric. We can always count on you!

    Curious - for me, the notes are just what I love and I would love to try it. But for a scent that is intended to be "very nocturnal in mood, heavy and sexy a scent that makes a statement..." the bottle is very ordinary, not at all stement-making.

    But what do I know?!! :bounce:
