BYREDO Super Cedar – For Him
Evocative of log cabins and Scandinavian furniture, cedar adds warmth to the overtly modern. In the perfumer’s palette, it has the power to inject energy and lend verticality to a fragrance. Notes of rose petals, virginian cedar wood and silk musk.
BYREDO Lil Fleur EDP Limited Edition – For her
Inspired by the dominant notes of the Lil Fleur fragrance and something of an homage to the girls cast to personify its spirit photographically, the Lil Fleur Limited Edition is a visual expression of the world of teen spirit the fragrance encapsulates. Notes of saffron, damascena rose, amber and vanilla.
SO THIS IS LOVE. AN INTOXICATING, MYSTERIOUS FRAGRANCE: VIGOROUS GRAPEFRUIT, LEVANTINE SPICE AND ROSE TANGLE IN THE MOONLIGHT. BUT WHAT’S THAT UPON THE RIVERBANK? COULD IT BE THE FABLED BLACK ROSE?
Byredo Burning Rose Candle
RP 70g £31/ 240g £59
This rose has the scent of ardent desire. As the candle consumes, the flowery accents are slowly wrapped in leather and rooted in dark woods.
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Home Candle
RP from 60g £25 – 2.5kg £325
Daring sensuality, encapsulated in scent. Ruby-rich juices of exotic pomegranate, spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily. Warmed by temptingly-smoky guaiacwood and patchouli. Dark and enigmatic. To uplift, to wind down, or simply to add an air of luxury. Transform the atmosphere with luxury and opulence.
Winning Team – Sandalwood, Tobacco & Oud Candle
A rich and intoxicating chypre woody accord where we experience dry dusty notes of tobacco, soft bergamot and sun sweetened mandarin. Hints of rock rose, dry black pepper and roasted nutmeg are supported by a heart of patchouli and gentle tobacco flower, leading us to a rich base of sandalwood, sensual amber, leather and musks.

BALLANTINES B7 BOURBON FINISH
Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Finish is the newest addition to the Ballantine’s family. A new blended Scotch whiskey, aged for 7 years before being finished in bourbon barrels all the way from the USA for some extra layers of creamy sweetness. Our favourite way to enjoy Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Finish is in an Old Fashioned, with a couple of dashes of orange bitters to complement the sweet notes of the whisky. But, we also know it’s great neat or on the rocks, or with a premium cola for extra refreshment.
