Thandie and I have both been friends of designer Bella Freud’s (and fans of her Pure Merino Wool jumpers-sweaters U.S. readers!) for many years, so we were excited that she turned her talents to fragrance and scented candles.
Je t’aime Jane contains Jasmine Night Flower absolute, Queen of the Night Flower, Ylang Ylang and Orange Blossom and described as a ‘romantic and seductive base accord of Black Oud, Sandalwood with a hint of Powder-Musk’.
Ginsberg is God is for both men and women and is enriched with Black Pepper and Elemi, infused with sacred Woods and Resins that ‘act as the scents for temples and gods. Leaving the inner sense of serenity, made up of Wormwood, Moss and leather’.
1970 is ‘an alchemy of rich and tenacious accords celebrate the essence of cultural style and freedom. Elegant Rose de Mai and Saffron lift the heart and spirit of this composition with a base accord that simmers with ingredients of Frankincense, Myrrh and Benzoin with hints of blonde woods that are cool and clear’.
‘Wood Scent. Smoked Incense from Morocco with Cedar wood and rich resins of Amber and Myrrh have been warmed for Bella’s signature scent. Hand poured natural wax’.
