Heading into a new season is always the perfect excuse for changing up your wardrobe but it’s also a fab time to update your fragrance. Thinking more about scents that suit the season, to me autumn and winter scream wood scents. Park walks are one of my favourite past times all year round, but autumn provides something a little bit different and a little bit special. The arrival of crunchy leaves and crisper air. There’s also the approach of colder days and the start of the nights beginning to draw in. A combination of all of these things directs me towards something a little bit darker, and much more earthy.
Michael Bublé’s latest ‘By Invitation’ fragrance, Peony Noir, provides just that. The primary base notes, created by Irene Farmachidi, are Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Patcholi. All notoriously woody, earthy tones and ones that provide a dark and musky scent. These are combined with Rose and Bergamot, amongst numerous other notes, to create a feminine fragrance that’s both rich and heady, but also light and sweet.
As important as the fragrance is the bottle design itself. Aesthetically speaking, the combination of rose pink and black are a winning duo. You can’t beat a classic shade of pink and black is a universally chic and attractive colour, so the duo together work really nicely. Coming from a (once upon a time) background of art and design, the no-fuss timeless bottle shape is a classic. Although I am slightly disappointed that I haven’t got a dressing table right now, as this is definitely one of those bottles you want to put out on display!
