Three of perfumer Lyn Harris’s classics – brightly packaged for summer – and wouldn’t you just love to put these on your dressing table?
The brand has teamed up with Parisian artist Cyril Destrade to create ‘Symphony of Colours’- an interpretation of the ‘rhythm of the fruits and the flowers’ and emotive colours that prevail when we smell the glorious citrus summer scents of Citron Citron, Le Petit Grain and Tangerine Vert. The boxes are bright and beautiful and the bottles have been intricately etched with reflective imagery.
This zesty, vibrant fragrance opens with top notes of lime, Sicilian lemon and orange Seville; followed by a herby mix of mind, basil, thyme and French marjoram in the heart and settles into an intricate blend of cardamom, cedar wood and green moss in the base.
Invoking fresh, green summers of childhood, Tangerine Vert combines Sicilian lemon, tangerine, and grapefruit in the top, with a floral heart of orange flower, geranium and marjoram. The base consists of androgynous neutral tones of sweet musk, cedar wood and moss.
Le Petit Grain
Celebrating the fragrance world’s cherished orange tree and Harris’s personal love, Le Petit Grain combines bergamot, lemon, orange oil, angelica racine and eau de brouts absolute in the top notes. In its heart – neroli, lavender, tarragon, red thyme and of course, petit grain. The base embodies vetiver, patchouli and oak moss.
