Honey, frangipani and green tea - all rather sophisticated
Centrepiece is a smooth, sophisticated fragrance that blends its elements so that no particular one stands out. If you try, you'll detect the honey, frangipani flowers and cedarwood, with a light, green tea freshness.
It made its UK debut at Fortnum & Mason on Piccadilly, and in UK shops it's exclusively available at their wonderful new perfume salon. In the US you can find it at Olfactif.com.
It came into being after a trip to F&M's ice cream parlour, and a stroll around the perfumery. There we met a perfume connoisseur who dropped into the studio a couple of months later, and picked out his favourite materials: green tea, our honey accord, frangipani absolute and cedarwood. Sarah took those and added ice cream fragrances: vanilla, citrus sorbets, a hint of chocolate.
This is the extrait version, the perfume strength which has an added dollop of honey scent.
When we all sat around the lab benches sniffing it it gave us a gentle feeling of peace, of finding our calm centre in a busy world. So it became Centrepiece.
