It’s like a very original note of hashish
Forget everything you already knew about lavender!
“21 Conduit St”, revisits a great classic of English perfumery while giving it a new, intriguing and decidedly modern twist. Whether the memory conjures dried flowers from Norfolk tucked into ornate sachets, or the fragrance of a bottle of authentic British Eau de Cologne, lavender is to English perfumery what scones are to teatime.
The result of a creative tandem, 21 Conduit St gives the scent of lavender a singular brightness. The accord comes from a formula by Oli Marlow, whose fascination with this aromatic note goes back to his childhood. He dreamt of giving it greater contrast, making it more multi- facetted upping the tangy, fruity freshness and warming it through with resinous notes.
In Paris, his meeting with the perfumer Marie Schnirer (Maelstrom) opened the door to a new world of raw materials, most notably a quality of Javanese Vetiver that enriches the ensemble with a whorl of smoky, earthy notes.
“It’s like a very original note of hashish” Marie Schnirer observes.
