Created by award-winning perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the much-awaited Burberry Bespoke Fragrance collection is now in Singapore, with a total of 9 exclusive scents. Inspired by the artistry of Burberry, along with the great British outdoors, the collection is a sensuous one that ranges from light and fresh scents to deep and intense fragrances, so there’s truly something for everyone.
There’s Amber Heath (one of their bestsellers from the Burberry Bespoke range), where you can expect notes of vanilla and patchouli, one that’s further accentuated by undertones of ambergris accord. Then there’s Antique Oak, which is inspired by British boatyards and comes with a clean and refined composition of earthy, refined saffron. Moving on to Clary Sage, which explores the aromatic facets of the amber sage, interwoven with fresh and herbal notes that channels the feeling of lying amongst the fields of Sussex. Garden Roses is a global bestseller for a number of reasons, thanks to the vibrant mix of Bulgarian rose layered with Italian lemon oil, finished with a delicate touch of vetiver that’s inspired by the classic Bloomsbury garden.
Hawthorn Bloom, on the other hand, is another fresh and comforting floral scent composed of orris and violet, carefully balanced with jasmine, musk and patchouli. Love standing by the coast to experience the waves crashing on the shores? That’s exactly what High Tide aims to create, thanks to the oak moss absolute that channels the crisp and green marine notes to perfection. Ivy Musk, as its name suggests, comes with a combination of musk with animalic notes, along with deep woody tones for intensity all around, while Tudor Rose is pretty much on the other end of the spectrum, comprising of a beautiful harmony of Bulgarian damask rose and mary rose. Last but no means least, Wild Thistle, which carries an enigmatic mix of galbanum oil that’s delicately balanced with uplifting notes of rosy and geranium leaf.
Now, if you’re curious as to where the bespoke bit comes in, you can start by choosing varying concentrations (up to 3) of a particular scent, followed by a coloured (one of 16) hand-tied leather ribbon of your choice, before finishing with a customisation of 3 initials on your Burberry Bespoke bottle.
