Niche line Washington Tremlett has launched three new London-inspired fragrances:
Notting Hill Carnival (shown above) ~ " The festival is held each year on a 5km stretch of road in West London where the participants, dressed in colourful costumes, dance to various Caribbean bands and rhythms of reggae, jazz, soul, hip-hop and funk. Washington Tremlett has dedicated this sunny, yet stylishly British fragrance to Europe’s most colourful carnival." With notes of lime, bergamot, bay laurel, coriander, pink pepper, ginger, leather, frankincense and labdanum.
Hampstead Water ~ "Hampstead Heath is the largest and oldest park in London and the trees and natural lakes provide an impressive backdrop. Hampstead Water is characterized by a special essence which grows in the lakes of the park: the water mint which builds the heart of this unforgettable fragrance." The notes for the fougere fragrance include bergamot, orange, lavender, water mint, leather and musk.
Chelsea Garden ~ "Thanks to its central location, Chelsea Garden is perfect for anyone who wants to find a tranquil spot amidst the hustle and bustle of city life, or simply enjoy a few moments of relaxation...For the fragrance Chelsea Garden, the original formula of Rose Centifolia from Grasse was rediscovered. The composition is simple, but the fragrance unerring. It begins floral-fresh and spicy, with faint notes of rose and cardamom that lead to a heart of jasmine. Rose absolute, ambergris and Indonesian patchouli create a wonderfully floral-woody base." Additional notes include cedar, musk, lignum vitae.
