FRAGRANCE - John Richmond Launches Perfume
John Richmond has launched a fresh female fragrance. John Richmond has been designing clothes since 1982 and added menswear, eyewear, footwear, swimwear and more to his designs. This is the first time he has embarked upon a fragrance and rumour has it there will be a range of watches coming soon too.
Although it is marketed as feminine, I thought it was quite a masculine fragrance and youthful. Not really classic or elegant, but more of an everyday scent that has longevity for a lasting aroma.
Top notes are grapefruit, pear and dewberry while amber and sandalwood make up the base. Overall a fruity, floral scent but not overtly girly. There's also a bath range to compliment the fragrance. You can expect to pay around £34 for 30mls up to around £65 for 100mls. From the smell, I had expected it to be cheaper to be honest but it would make a nice gift for Christmas.
It's an exclusive for Harvey Nichols stores from 1 October.
