“Neroli was the first fragrance I created for the Aromatics collection, inspired by an original 18th century French formula allegedly blended for Napoleon Bonaparte who loved the Neroli scent. It was launched in 1981 and called Czech & Speake Eau de Cologne. The challenge, as always with a citrus based fragrance, was creating depth and longevity so we turned to ylang-ylang as an anchor to add the perfect powdery finish. To reflect the Napoleonic heritage, I designed the packaging print motif around the shape of his famous bicorne hat. I never tire of wearing this classic, refreshing scent…”

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.
