EVOKING ENGLISH TRADITION: a traditional lavender fragrance, inspired by the English countryside and evoking memories of great sporting tradition. A fresh and invigorating scent, perfect for everyday use
INVIGORATING. CLASSIC. FRESH: the fragrance opens with a clean, fresh, youthful appeal of English and French lavender, topped with herbaceous peppermint, rosemary and bergamot, gradually giving way to a subtle base of warm oak moss
BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED: a satin finish blue 19th century apothecary style glass bottle, embellished in a uniquely designed box recalling the famous Oxford & Cambridge boat race
COMPLEX FORMULATION: a traditional blend of the highest and purest quality aromatic essential oils, with deep and lasting undertones
“I have always loved lavender fragrances, especially continental blends with powerful undertones. I decided to create my very own in 1994 when the Italian lavender based fragrance I was using was no longer available. I introduced a citrus and mint freshness to the English and French Lavender blend and referenced English traditions and the famous sporting heritage of the classic Oxford & Cambridge boat race with the name and design.”

How to apply/how much?
Our fragrances come as a cologne spray, which enables a simple spritz application to the skin; whether that be to the wrists, neck, chest, inner elbow – the choice is yours. Equally the amount applied is personal choice, the higher the application the stronger the scent. The quality and high concentration of our colognes allow for less use to obtain the desired strength of scent.
In some cultures through history, particularly seen in the middle east, perfume is infused into clothing and hair through scented smoke. The concept of scenting clothing as well as the skin has travelled, and a more accessible approach is to simply spray a perfume directly onto your clothing.
Can it be worn by men and women?
Of course. Traditionally, perfume was not gender specific. The separation of fragrance for men and women was a marketing ploy crafted in America in the 1960’s, to encourage more men to buy into the idea of wearing fragrance, as societal attitudes at the time considered the wearing of perfume to be a feminine trait. In reality the notes in perfume should come down to personal taste, with no legitimate reason for this to be defined by gender, especially in the modern context where equality is key.
