Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) is a clove-scented, fringed flower that is bicolored in white/pink/red tones. It recently received some justified accolades when Kate Middleton included it in her bridal bouquet, presumably for both the lovely scent and the name. Ineke has created a Sweet William soliflore fragrance that is ensconced by rich wood notes.
The fragrance opens with a juicy peach note. The Sweet William floralcy is further warmed with cinnamon, clove and cumin essential oils. The dominant wood notes are a blend of cedarwood, sandalwood and patchouli, softened with Bourbon vanilla.
Ineke + Anthropologie Sweet William will be available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum, $68, or 15 ml travel spray, $28.
