British actor Richard E. Grant of cult movie Whitnail and I fame, is preparing to launch a signature unisex perfume next spring in 2014, which will feature an infusion of weed - not tweed - weed, for a touch of controversy...
The actor is reportedly very much interested in smells in real life - Grenouille style- to the point where his friend fashion designer Anya Hindmarch advised him to go create a fragrance.
The perfume features notes of lime, clove oil, juicy mandarin, white musk, tobacco, pepper oil and an infusion of Marijuana. It was developed in collaboraton with a Parisian perfumer over two years.
Eliciting to include Marijuana as a note is not explained - you can infer it has something to do with Whitnail and I and its chaotic atmosphere. And apparently it's legal to do so even though all sorts of aromatic ingredients are regulated into oblivion.
The scent launches at Liberty's from April 2014.
