“When I was a child, my parents would drive us overnight from London to their holiday house in Provence in a battered Peugeot 205. As we arrived, after the 13-hour drive, we would open the car windows to let in the morning heat, hear the crunch of the pebbles on the drive, and breathe in the tantalisingly fresh smell of the passing gorse bushes. The holiday had begun.”
Laboratory Perfume's second scent owes its existence to a gorse-lined driveway in Provence. Captivated by the coconut-infused air surrounding the yellow flowers of the gorse bushes, Laboratory Perfumes master fragrance-makers set about creating a scent that captured the essence of summer in the countryside.
The result is a fresh, crisp fragrance that transports the wearer to sun-kissed heathlands along the coast. Opening with an invigorating top note of citrus, and of course, the delightful coconut hit of the gorse flower, the scent is given a spicy depth by the suggestion of cardamom beneath.
“Gorse is an olfactory snapshot of a summer evening on seaside moorland covered in heather, and it's achieved with a mix of citrus and spicy notes.”
