Liz Earle’s debut scent: truly botanical

the Antidote to... powdery fragrances

Renowned for her skincare ranges, Liz Earle has added to them with this lovely scent, her first foray into the fragrance arena. And how. The eau de parfum opens with juicy top notes of blackcurrant bud, complemented by crisp bergamot and vibrant red ginger. Beyond, a heart of velvety rich osmanthus is offset by the exoticism of damask rose and smooth patchouli created around a base of woody oakmoss and Haitian vetiver, all enveloped within the warmth of vanilla.
