There's a 'fume fan’ who's a fragrance friend of Sarah’s, Maximilian Heusler. She and Max got talking online about his ideal fragrance and it was the most amazing idea, inspired by his former wild times. (These days his vices are entirely fragrance related.) He told her about the kind of night out in New York that involves cocktails, marijuana cigars, hookers and passing out. She knew what cocktails smell like; the rest? Sarah has a good imagination. So this is one intense scent: rum, coconut and lime, tobacco, coffee and cannabis essential oil, a handful of vintage style musks, a generous dash of vanilla, a drop of cumin and woods. Max was astonished with the result; it’s exactly the smell of his Ferragamo leather jacket from 2003.

Here, Sarah McCartney, master that she is, has created one of the most evocative scents I've ever laid nose on (she does that quite often, actually), at the behest of a longtime fan/friend of hers, to mimic the smell of a crazy night out in New York. And she nailed it. With that inspiration in mind, suddenly all of the notes make perfect sense...This is refreshing, bright and boozy, spicy, rich and funky (in a way that I love!!) all at the same time... and I can't get enough of it, when the mood strikes to wear it!
