Doe in the Snow was made for a special occasion one January, for a very special customer. It’s inspired by the fruity chypre fragrances of the 1960s and 70s, but with a layer of frost. Citrus fruits, flowers and woods, stirred with an icicle. Imagine a tall, elegant woman, dressed in red and white velvet, but at ground level, she’s wearing her wellington boots so her feet don’t get cold and wet. Graceful, yet practical. Doe in the Snow turns out to be the perfect refreshing spritz for hot summer days.

When the final version arrived, it was the most special smell, which Sarah describes as ‘citrus fruits, flowers and woods, stirred with an icicle’. I sprayed it all over the (faux) fur coat I borrowed from my mum on my wedding day – the same coat she’d worn for her own wedding.
