Grossmith Sylvan Song ~ new fragrance

Grossmith Sylvan Song

Niche line Grossmith has launched Sylvan Song, a new fragrance exclusive to Fortnum & Mason in London.

Grossmith's first ever exclusive perfume for Fortnum's, Sylvan Song is a quintessentially English fragrance with an oriental twist.

An opening of peppery bergamot provides a lovely initial freshness, leading into a heart of flowers including rose, jasmine and ylang ylang. The bouquet melts into a sweet and woody base of tonka bean, patchouli, vetiver, Guaiac wood, benzoin and musk.

Presented in a old-embossed black and eau de nil gift box.

Grossmith Sylvan Song is available at Fortnum & Mason, £195 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.

    How much?! Might pop into Fortnum’s when I’m in London in December for a sniff, but have no intention buying – mind you, as was mentioned the other day, this seems to be the way things are going, if the article about Roja Dove’s product for Bergdorf Goodman & its ridiculous cost is another indicator for the future of fragrance.

    I’d love to try this, but I was shocked a couple weeks ago, while wearing Phul-Nana from a decant, to discover in my records that my 100ml bottle of Shem-el-Nessim cost me LESS THAN $160 shipped from the UK in January 2010. Unbelievable. I really don’t like where the perfume market has gone.

      Yeah. It’s bothering me lately. You would think all these companies were using more expensive natural materials, but of course it’s the opposite…they’re using less natural materials all the time.
