"Created in 2003, Endymion is a sensual fusion of citrus, spices and leather. It opens with a burst of sweetened mandarin wrapped gently in sage and lavender, then settles and smoothes gently into a dark coffee heart. As it warms up, mysterious resins rise up with hints of creamy nutmeg, cardamom and the softest leather. Spicy and fresh, it is a fragrance of contrasts, a seductive night time fragrance. Endymion was a mortal who was so loved by the Goddess of the Moon that she put him to sleep forever so she alone could visit him every night. Perfumer: Steve de MercadoNot forgetting the final spray of the finest Eau de toilette.
A Renaissance of a ‘Bay Rum’ preparation from the archives. Rediscovered in the pages of Time. The spice (black pepper, cardamom) of life (mandarin, tangerine) brings panache to the lemongrass and musk-patchouli that characterises this energetic scent.
So it’s hats off to the archives, and in particular the 16th century sailors who conceived of ‘Bay Rum’. Indeed, who better to take Caribbean bay leaves and soak them in rum as a rudimentary perfume. Need is indeed the mother of invention…
The final touch? Soothing lavender & moss, musk and amber-patchouli.
The firm favourites of gentlemen (and sailors)"
Running late with an anniversary gift and the scent I wanted sold out in numerous retail outlets. Service was great! Even got a phone call to confirm that it was the correct product as the barcode had changed. Gift turned up quickly and beautifully wrapped!
