Penhaligon’s unveiled their very first gourmand fragrance, inspired by the quintessentially English tradition of afternoon tea, and the transitional moment when day turns to evening and when cold Winter yields to Spring.
Created by Master Perfumer Olivier Cresp, Equinox Bloom plays with an olfactory palette inspired by the delights of high tea, accompanied by the heady bouquet of the first sweet Spring flowers. Delicious notes of Chantilly, Frangipani and Brown Sugar are blended with violet leaves, orange blossom absolute and jasmine sambac, rounded with the deep, Oriental richness of Benzoin Siam and Ambrox.
“During one of my recent visits to London, I enjoyed an incredible brunch in a smart, refined place, where the magnificent atmosphere of the rooms, furnished with opulent floral compositions, ensnared my senses almost at once. While admiring the floral scenery, my brunch included delightful toasts topped with honey and marmalade and these gourmand facets inspired me to bring to Equinox Bloom a trendy, modern inflexion to the generous floral bouquet. To me, this luxurious and abundant refinement reflects Penhaligon´s generosity in fragrances in a perfect way.” – Olivier Cresp, Perfumer.
A subtle, sweet treat from Penhaligon’s, Equinox Bloom plays on a series of favorite traditions and pleasing transitions – day to night, Winter to Spring – offering up a delicious and distinctive blend of gourmand and floral infusions to truly delight the senses.
