So whilst doing a trolley dash through Liberty the other afternoon I made a beeline for the fragrance room to spritz up and check out a new brand in store.
Francis Kurkdjian has been producing custom-blend fragrance since 2001 and has worked and created perfumes for Acqua di Parma and Guerlain to name a few.
My favourite in his pret-a-porter collection was Lumiere Noire. Fragrance notes include spicy rose, patchouli and daffodil. Hours later on my coat the drops of fragrance developed into a warm and rich smell. It brought images to my mind of how a bourgeois woman of Rome might have smelt in the early eighties.
I wonder what the sales assistant down the BP would think of it?
