New for autumn 2020, the latest fragrance additions to ‘Bentley Beyond - The Collection’ capture three distinct floral personalities for women: Vibrant Hibiscus, Radiant Osmanthus and Mellow Heliotrope.
The ‘For Her’ fragrances follow on from the travel-inspired unisex collection: a trip to Acapulco with Exotic Musk, a voyage to Goa with Majestic Cashmere, an odyssey in Java with Wild Vetiver and a journey through Havana with Rich Pimento.
Flamboyant in style and with an exuberant aroma, Vibrant Hibiscus is for the woman who likes to stand out. Opening with top notes of cassis and Italian mandarin, the scent exudes floral undertones of scarlet peony, crimson Turkish rose and a pink hibiscus accord, with jasmine as an enticing contrast to the fiery palette. Once the scent settles on your skin, the warm, exotic aromas of sandalwood and Indonesian patchouli further enhance the fragrance’s appeal.
A magical orange bloom from Asia comprises the scent of Radiant Osmanthus - a sweet, uplifting fragrance designed for the woman who sparks joy everywhere she goes. In the top notes, sparkling mandarin and bright orange blossom give the scent its magical zest, whilst the ruby flesh of blood peach enhances the osmanthus heart of the fragrance. In contrast, the sweet, airy aroma of wild jasmine perfectly complements the base notes of creamy sandalwood, white amber and musks.
If a quote could describe the scent of Mellow Heliotrope, it would be, "A flower does not think of competing with a flower next to it. It just blooms." Subtle yet captivating, the fragrance opens with crisp blackcurrant bud, accented with pink pepper. A playful strawberry heart introduces romantic undertones of violet and heliotrope, whilst a touch of vanilla and praline enhance the fragrance’s gourmand appeal.
The new floral fragrances also boast the familiar elegant glass bottle and hand-stitched cap (this time in suede), which is reminiscent of the interior of a Bentley car.
The idea behind these distinctive fragrances wouldn’t have come to fruition if it wasn’t for the remarkable heritage of two ingenious Bentley women - Diana Barnato-Walker and Dorothy Paget. Diana - the daughter of famed 'Bentley Boy' Woolf Barnato - was a pioneering English aviator and was the first British woman to break the sound barrier in 1963. Dorothy - the heiress and race-horse owner - was the financier behind the iconic 'Bentley Blowers' in the late 1920s.
Effortlessly elegant and meticulously crafted, these brand new floral fragrances are available to buy online now through the Bentley website.
