In spring 2015 fans of the British house of Penhaligon’s will be thrilled by the new fragrance Ostara inspired by daffodil flowers! Just like this floral scent which is one of the first signs of spring, fragrance Ostara carries bright yellow color and an optimistic composition full of character and cheerfulness. Characteristic style of perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour comes as the seal to the new edition reinterpreting ‘blooming of daffodils, from bud to full bloom’.
The fragrance is characterized by a modern version of strong flowers refreshed with aldehydes and luminous green notes. Composition of the fragrance Ostara opens with a blend of bergamot, clementine, juniper, red berries CO2, mint, currant buds CO2, violet leaf absolute, green leaves and aldehydes effect. The heart adds floral notes of daffodil, hyacinth, cyclamen, ylang-ylang, hawthorn and wisteria along with intense accords of beeswax. Base notes combine styrax resin, vanilla, benzoin, musk, amber and blond wood. “An iconic feature of the British countryside, the daffodil symbolises the optimism and revival of spring.
In 1802, the distinguished poet William Wordsworth wrote about a sea of daffodils in his poem, ‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’. Excerpts have been included on the outer packaging of the fragrance to reflect the radiance of the flower.” Perfume Ostara will be available from spring 2015 as 50ml and 100ml Eau de Toilette.
