This gorgeous trio forms a narrative of the seasons, from summer through to winter. They are dynamic and each very different from each other.
Sitting on the grass, feeling at one with the summer heat, the sun touches your face with a vibrant caress. Blue sky, edging into a warm glow, gives you contentment in cathedral cloisters. The effervescence of champagne and the birds gliding soundlessly above succumb to a setting sun whilst musical notes float through the air on the evening breeze. On days like these, you are soothed by their Summer Serenade.
This aromatic citrus fragrance takes its lead from an invigorating blend of bitter orange, pink grapefruit, mandarin and bergamot. The combination of sweet and tart aromas is accented by a wonderfully green neroli before the finest jasmine joins an evocative geranium, which also provides the merest hint of lavender.
The crispness of autumn, melancholic in its rich and varied colours, hides the beauty of what nature has planned for seasons ahead. The brown leaves underfoot and the hint of rain in the air create a familiarity as you take in the scents and sounds of the forest. You walk together, hand in hand, and yet separate as you enjoy the fern-like woodiness that September offers us. This is your Keahia, this is your very own gift from above.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately…” (Henry David Thoreau)
This crisp, woody, earthy fragrance places the wonderfully evocative vetiver in its very heart, where it is given an addictive powderiness from the exquisite iris. An elegant blend of cedarwood and sandalwood sits proudly alongside a patchouli-touched oudh before a dry hint of almond completes the scent.
Excitement surrounds you as you head into the night for an evening of luxurious decadence. Through windows you glimpse the flicker of candles and a fire warming the heart of a home. The air is cold and crisp with a jewelled bite but it is invisible against the anticipation of the opulent fabrics and deep colours that await you. From the theatre, the ballet, and the opera, rousing music echoes the sensual enveloping feeling of Crushed Velvet.
This rich, sensuous, oriental fragrance combines ylang ylang’s exotic qualities, geranium’s earthy androgynous edge, and tuberose’s heady extravagance. The pairing of Bulgarian and Moroccan rose contrasts the fruity with the spicy but the wonderfully smooth sandalwood and earthy patchouli is both elegant yet challenging.
About Sarah Ireland
I'd never visited the New Forest before meeting Sarah. Sarah had just launched her perfume range and I couldn't wait to meet her. Her surroundings were amazing. Thick forest with wild horses roaming everywhere.
We sat in a little shop and talked. I loved Sarah's story. It was full of life and truth. When I left, Sarah gave me some perfumes to take away with me.
Before leaving the beauty of the forest I decided to go on a walk. Putting on one of her fragrances, I set out. The experience of wearing Sarah Ireland Perfume on that walk changed my outlook of perfume, and has since shaped Bare&Bond as a company. The perfume Sarah had given me added a whole new sensory dimension to my walk. It was incredible.
I'm so excited for you all to try Sarah's perfume. Enjoy!
