A WORLD of Scent

world of scent Yasmine

Instalment three of Nothing smells as good as the person you love! Especially if they bought their fragrance from WORLD

First up and pictured above we have Penhaligon’s Portraits Yasmine, an enchanting scent for brides far and wide.

Yasmine’s sights are set on London – and a suitable match. Her oriental fragrance is a voluptuous affair: jasmine, incense, oud. A celebration of all that is gloriously sensual. Who could resist?

Top notes: Jasmine. Heart notes: Incense. Base notes: Oud.

Juliette Has A Gun

“Beauty is women’s best revenge” – Serge Gainsbourg. Perfumer Romano Ricci introduced this cult fragrance in December 2006. The ‘gun’ is a metaphor, symbolising the weapon of seduction – sometimes with an aftertaste of revenge. Expect top notes of Vanilla and Jasmine with Tonka Bean and Neroli Essence at its heart…

Juliette Has a Gun

An original name for an original concept. This onomatopoeia reminds us of something delicious, might it be gourmand or sensual…

Top notes: Vanilla, Jasmine. Heart Notes: Neroli Essence, Tonka Bean. Base notes: Ambroxan.

Juliette Has A Gun Lady Vengeance

The darker of the two fragrances, marrying thorny bulgarian rose and patchouli to create a contemporary scent.

Lady Vengeance is a perfume with a rich and sophisticated trail. The expression of undeniable femininity, confident and divinely sensual. The fragrance of a Lady for whom the art of seduction bares no secret. You can smell, you can dream but the rest lies in her hands. We at Libertine simply can’t recommend this fragrance enough – it’s both a store and staff favourite.

Marc-Antoine Barrois Ganymede

Named after the rocky satellite of Jupiter discovered in 1610 by Galileo, this scent is rooted in Akigalawood with Mandarina from Italy at its heart.

The entire composition plays with contrasts and oppositions. The notes answer one another in a permanent conversation drawing a new olfactory map on the skin, on the revers of a cashmere jacket, or even right there, next to the buttons of the sleeves, on the wrist.

Marc-Antoine Barrois Paris

Top notes: Mandarina from Italy. Heart notes: Violet, Chinese Osmanthus Absolute Orpur. Base notes: Akigalawood, Immortelle Absolute.
