Bigarade is the species of bitter orange native to Southeast Asia, with wild trees growing in Florida and The Bahamas. Also known as the Seville orange, these highly prized fruits are used in the production of marmalade. We can imagine a man wearing this fragrance while lounging over breakfast in a stylish country house, deciding where he wants an adventure today…
With the crisp freshness of the opening almost immediately switching to a sauna-like steaminess, cardamom and black pepper add the tingle of warm spices to the laconic richness of sandalwood and vetiver – the signature of the scent. A fragrance for the gentleman who’s naturally nonchalant but with a fastidious eye for the finishing details, everything feels effortlessly refined and embodies the timeless appeal and craftsmanship of this consistently classy British brand.
