Its delicious freesia top note, with an unusual hint of coriander, is balanced by middle notes of Turkish rose oil, Peony accord, and Sambac jasmine absolute. and a warm heart of Patchouli, Vetiver oil, and Australian sandalwood oil.
The dry down is a glorious combination of floral, green and musky sunshine, designed to evoke “shaded garden paths” in Oxfordshire.
