My Favourite London Scent Haunts - Bertrand Duchaufour

For the first in the "My Favourite London Scent Haunts" series we sat together with the two perfumers behind our latest Forage launch.


“I was really surprised by the huge number of parks, squares and other green spaces you can find in the capital and the different scents you can find there. I recently discovered the herb cow parsley. It grows everywhere in the city and could seem so insignificant, but as soon as you scratch the leaf, it releases a stunning odour – reminiscent of the citrusy floral effect of bergamot and the green spicy note of parsley, mixed with a green, earthy touch of galbanum. And there’s the Thames of course, with its dirty petrol-like notes and smoky, rubber accents, all mixed with an ineffable aqueous note.”
