Yardley London introduced a new perfume in its Floral Classics Fragrance Collection and English flowers series called English Freesia...
The house is putting the accent on the traditional symbolism of freesia as the 7th wedding anniversary flower and its meaning as the bloom of friendship, thoughtfulness and innocence.
The hesperidic floral composition is signed by perfumer Beverley Bayne of CPL Aromas. She explained,
"I am so excited to see the resurgence of one of my favourite flowers in fragrance. When developing this scent, I wanted to create a fresh aroma which gave a nod to the current trend for vintage floral blooms, whilst also capturing the light airy citrusy, almost peppery-incense top note, with the delicate but diffusive central floral theme, on a long lasting but fresh musky-woody amber background."
The eau de toilette has top notes of bergamot, lemon, mandarin, and cypress. The heart is both aromatic and floral with freesia, lily of the valley, ginger and pepper - the latter to underscore a natural peppery nuance of freesias. The base is said to be warm and sensual with sandalwood, musk and amber
Prices: £9.99 /50 ml and £14.99/125 ml
