Penhaligon’s Fragrances “Roaming the British Shores and Moors”

Penhaligon’s London introduces two new fragrances Blasted Heath and Blasted Bloom composed by Master perfumer Alberto Morillas of Firmenich that conjure images of the wild British country side and rocky shores.
When I read the marketing copy and story behind M Morillas’ preparation for creating both Eau de Parfums, I imagine Heathcliff of Wuthering Heights wandering the moors, Rebecca’s Max de Winter long brooding walks by the sea, the dark secret of Manderly and Jane Eyre roaming the countryside lost and abandoned. »


Blasted Heath
“Blasted Heath evokes the moment where the Land meets the Sea and energy explodes. A wave of aquatic freshness is enriched with salty seaweed and aromatic clary sage crashes into crunchy green leaves and the surprising transparent woodiness of Clearwood™. The earthy elegance of vetiver is textured by tobacco and whisky, atop an authoritative woody signature of patchouli, cedarwood and gaiacwood”.

Blasted Bloom
“Blasted Bloom captures a free-spirited landscape where the energy and majesty of the Sea meets the natural richness of the Land. The mineral purity of an aquatic accord meets the fruity sparkle of wild berries and the sensation of hand-crushed green leaves. Wild floral heart of eglantine rose and hawthorn is tinted with pink pepper. A whisper of Clearwood™ is enveloped in balmy cedarwood, on a smooth bed of moss and musks”.

# Clearwood: « novel raw material created by Firmenich using white biotechnology. Sugarcane is fermented with bioengineered yeast. The resulting product is then distilled, creating a contrasting natural material. Smelling at once of light, creamy amber and the dark woodiness of patchouli, yet without the earthy quality, it is both sheer and textured, providing a back-bone to a perfume’s structure as well as addictive and modern chypre elements.
