‘AT YOUR SERVICE’ FRAGRANCE AND FLORAL MATCHING FOR MOTHER’S DAY
Fortnum’s keeps ultimate service at the forefront with new scent expertise!
Combining its expertise in floristry and fragrance, Fortnum & Mason has created a new, limited edition service for Mother’s Day. The notes of five key fragrances, chosen to suit a variety of different women, have been studied and perfectly matched with the complimentary scents of five unique bouquets.The super stylish and sought after Bella Freud 1970 Eau de Parfum has been a hit on the Fortnum & Mason Fragrance and Beauty Floor and has dominant notes of Rose de Mai and saffron. To compliment this, Norma Jean Roses have been selected for the accompanying bouquet which has a strong uplifting scent much like’s Freud’s perfume. Matching 1970’s hint of blonde woods, Fortnum’s florists finished the bouquet with twisted willow. The late spring flowers featured compliment the exotic eastern perfume. Rhodanthe by Electimuss, a contemporary perfume house, is another rose scent but with olive to evoke spicy geranium. There are also notes of warm, earthy patchouli, sandalwood and white musk. A beautiful lilac posy of Roses, Syringa and Moon Flowers was created to match this modern scent.
An elegant bunch of yellow roses, tuba roses and myrtle leaves was created to match classic Floris’s Cherry Blossom Eau de Parfum.The soft, feminine fragrance has a crisp fresh top note of bergamot, orange and pink peppercorn that leads to the delicate floral notes of cherry blossom, peony and rose. The myrtle leaves supply this freshness whilst the roses mirror the perfume perfectly.Bella Bellissima’s Blue Diamond is a fruity, floral amber oud. The scent has top notes of mimosa, which is used in abundance in the vivid accompanying posy. The mimosa gives a musky scent which is one of the base notes of Blue Diamond. Rose with orange and yellow freesiasare also used in the bouquetwhich supports the apricot blossom in the perfume. Fleurissimo by Creed, the iconic perfume house that started its journey at Fortnum & Mason Piccadilly, has a dominant note of lily of the valley, and so has been paired with a bunch of the same flower, a rare scented British bloom in early spring.
The ‘At Your Service’ perfectly matched fragrance and bouquets will be available at Fortnum & Mason Piccadilly and www.fortnumandmason.com from 15 February until 6 March.
