Seemingly having escaped from an antiques store, the perfume is a whimsical, poetic wink in the direction of a 19th century institution for the well-bred, and not just for women, the finishing Grand Tour.
"Inspired by The Grand Tour - a trip across Europe enjoyed by young ladies in the 19th century as a finishing course to their educations - this ethereal floral scent evokes rose gardens, high teas and happy accidents. The eau de parfum is housed in an inkwell bottle topped with a pincushion and Victorian-inspired pins, while the more highly concentrated parfum is housed in replicas of crystal tear catchers from the era.
Notes include: pink peppercorns and Darjeeling tea are splashed with a burst of grapefruit, a dash of wisteria and the scent of ancient Alba roses, then softened with amber wood and cashmere musk (FLORAL).
Prices: $68 for 75 ml edp, $30 for 10 ml parfum; $26 for solid perfume.
