Paul Smith has introduced a new fragrance for women, Paul
Smith Rose. The scent is based on the odor of the Sir Paul Smith rose as
captured by ScentTrek, a variation on headspace technology.
The rose at the heart of this fragrance is one that bears
his name. “My wife, Pauline, created a wonderful birthday gift a rose
cultivated specially for me. This proved to be an inspiration for the
fragrance,” says Paul.
Antoine Maisondieu, the perfumer who worked with Paul on its
creation explains: “I wanted to combine an airy quality with a soft,
velvety feeling on the skin. I blended Paul Smith ScentTrek with Turkish rose
oil and green tea, adding a sparking halo of violet and magnolia flowers. A
woody accord, with touches of clear cedar, provides depth and structure, which
along with soft musks, give it an addictive quality.”
Paul Smith Rose is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum
and in matching body products. (via paulsmith.co.uk, found via selfridges)
