Penhaligon’s unveils two new perfumes inspired by the extreme, wild and passionate British landscape; that moment where the Land meets the Sea and untamed energy explodes. Where dramatic landscape meets the restless ocean in an eternal caress; the pure, wild elements are infinitely inspiring and have thrilled painters, poets and lovers throughout history.
Blasted Bloom ~ "Illuminating the freshness of wild flora found along the dramatic British coast, Blasted Bloom captures a free-spirited landscape where the energy and majesty of the Sea meets the natural richness of the Land. The mineral purity of an aquatic accord meets the fruity sparkle of wild berries and the sensation of hand-crushed green leaves. Wild floral heart of eglantine rose and hawthorn is tinted with pink pepper. A whisper of Clearwood™ is enveloped in balmy cedarwood, on a smooth bed of moss and musks." [Note: clearwood is a Firmenich molecule with a "woody character sparkling with creamy and ambery facets".]
Blasted Heath ~ "Like a powerful swell breaking against the shore, the top notes provide an invigorating wave of aquatic freshness. Enriched with green and salty seaweed reminiscent of oceanic spray, the aquatic accord is infused with the aromatic intensity of clary sage, adding contrast. In the heart, the fragrance meets the shore. Fresh with crunchy green leaves. Refined with the surprising transparent woodiness of Clearwood™. Then texture develops with the tobacco and whisky accord. An assertive masculine character, strengthened by an authoritative woody signature. The resinous warmth of patchouli and Alaska cedarwood blends into rough accents of gaiacwood and the earthy elegance of vetiver. Musks finally bring the ultimate sensuousness at the end of the invigorating journey."
Penhaligon's Blasted Bloom and Blasted Heath are available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
