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.
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.
