Jardin De Bagatelle by Guerlain – Reminds me of an amazing holiday in Ibiza with my best friend.
My best memory of a fragrant memory is Jasmin: the small white flowers making a canopy over my deckchair on a greek island, where I am sipping an ouzo: the combined effect is positively intoxicating!
“Chance eau Fraiche by Chanel – my fav scent! Started wearing it June time so reminds of Summer, drinking Pimms in the sun BBQ with friends – I love it!”
One of my earliest scent memories is from my boyhood, when we’d buy a quarter pound of traditional mint Bullseye sweets from the village shop. Back in those days they’d always use peppermint oil grown and made in England, which was much purer and stronger than the oil used in most confectionery today. It’s taken us over 20 years to grow, harvest and distill that same high quality peppermint on our Hampshire farm. Walking through those fields in the late summer, the smell of our Black Mitcham peppermint is quite incredible. It was this that inspired us to invite perfumer Ruth Mastenbroek to create a signature Summerdown lemongrass and mint fragrance for our natural body, bath & home range.
