‘Eau de gentleman’
Exactly what happens when two Jermyn Street institutions join forces? 71/72 EDP ..that’s what! The fragrant love child of perfumer Floris and bespoke tailor Turnbull & Asser is here, and it certainly packs an olfactory punch! Having been a year in gestation, this new fragrance is designed to evoke the experience of stepping inside the veteran shirtmaker’s boutique. I does just that. by combining woody, masculine aromas, with a fresher and more energising notes of Mandarin and Bergamot.
Opening with punchy Juniper and Citrus notes of Mandarin and Bergamot, the scent is further balanced by Sandalwood and Frankincense, which offer earthy and spicy undertones which develop further as the fragrance settles. Heady florals of Jasmine and Lavender are also infused to soften the spritz. Sophistication of this level doesn’t come cheap (for some £160 may prove eye watering) but here at grooming towers we reckon that it’s worth getting your hands on a flacon. One spritz, will be enough to transform you from city chav… to urban gentleman!
