October Scent of the Month: Portobello

portobello candles reeds

Welcome the coming autumn with our delightful newest luxury fragrance, Portobello.

Imagine a stroll through the bustling market stalls of our beloved Portobello Market in London. Sweet pomegranate and fresh raspberries mingle with dried roses to create rich, floral top notes that will add an air of luxury to your living space.

Delve deeper and you’ll find earthy midtones of patchouli and oak, grounding the scent with sensual warmth. As you immerse yourself in Portobello, these notes begin to reveal their magic.

Patchouli brings a mystical warmth to the blend, while fresh raspberries mingle delightfully with the heavier ingredients to create playful vibrancy. Oak delivers a reassuring foundation with its sturdy, woody essence.

At the base of Portobello, a luxurious trio of amber, pink pepper, and vetiver gracefully take the stage. Amber provides a rich, resinous underpinning while adding a subtle sweetness to the mix.

Pink pepper adds a dash of spirited spice, a gentle kick that tantalizes the senses. Vetiver anchors this luxury fragrance with woody undertones; a soft presence that lasts long after the first flicker.

This harmony of scents ensures that Portobello will bring an air of luxury to your space, evoking the spirited charm of the famed London market with every gentle waft.

With its enchanting blend of fruits, florals, and rich earthy notes, Portobello can transform any space of your home into a rich, vibrant refuge, reflective of its namesake.

Let the top notes of pomegranate and raspberry accompany lively conversation in your living room. Embrace the seductive mid-notes of patchouli and oak in the bedroom to create a relaxing and reflective mood. Morph your bathroom into a spa with the help of the lush, deep notes of amber and vetiver.

Versatility with decoration

When it comes to decor, Portobello is versatile, blending seamlessly with a range of styles and preferences.

Much like the varied stalls of Portobello Market, an eclectic decor style with vintage touches—perhaps in the form of antique lamps and retro furnishings—will complement the timelessness of the scent.

If it’s a luxurious feel you’re after—perhaps punctuated by velvet cushions and metallic accents—then Portobello’s spicy, resinous undertones will go far to elevate the opulence of your space.

Employ these colours and decorations to allow Portobello to dance into the tapestry of your space, creating a holistic experience that is both enchanting and cohesive.
