My life would be perfect if I had...Psychoanalysis (the perfume) © Sina Sparrow
Bella Freud founded her eponymous British fashion label in 1989, with perfumes appearing in 2014. She is the daughter of painter Lucian Freud and the great grand-daughter of Sigmund Freud. In 2017, she has decided to pay homage to the inventor of psychoanalysis in a tongue-in-cheek manner with a new scent composition called Psychoanalysis and graphic illustrations by Sina Sparrow...
"'Psychoanalysis' is the perfume of obsessive romantic love. A man so intelligent and deep holds your happiness but can never fulfil it. The smell of the leather couch is reassuring; the fragrance of cigars and orange blossom opens your mind and heart."
Psychoanalysis opens on top notes of neroli and petitgrain, which reportedly "capture the essence of intelligence and heritage of this Eau de Parfum." Warmth and depth are suggested by a hint of tobacco flower, with "deep, dense resins" in the base featuring cedarwood, dry amber and dark musks.
SRP is £165 (100ml)
