“Here my thought was to work with rich evocative ingredients – like cedar, leather, oakmoss and tobacco – to create a sense of deep confidence. But I also wanted this to be a warm and personable scent, something worn with an easy elegance.

For me this scent has a sense of stately living. I imagine the classic elegant interiors of 18th century gentlemen’s clubs – a suggestion of leatherbound books and chesterfields, with the smoky hint of logs on the fire. But there is also an exterior world here that is more contemporary – valleys, woods and the earth of the English countryside.

However, those are just my starting points. What does it suggest to you when it becomes yours? I’d love to know.”
