SINGAPORE — A scent can be very personal, as it evokes memories and stories just by a whiff. With this in mind, Burberry Bespoke has ambitiously entered the market with their first standalone counter at Level 1, Takashimaya Mall, Singapore.
Defying the shaky retail landscape, the counter is designed reminiscence of an English bar set in a gentleman’s club, with green coloured marble top and brass steels, for that refined look. There is a collection of nine exclusive fragrances created by renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. Inspired by British landscapes, each perfume comes with varying concentration to suit the wearer’s olfactory receptors.
“For each fragrance, the concentration has been carefully chosen to offer customers the perfect blend possible. It allows the same fragrance to tell us a different translation of a story,” Francis shared.
The fragrances are:
A fragrance inspired by a classic Bloomsbury garden. Fragrant Bulgarian rose layered with memorable Italian lemon oil. Exquisite vetiver adds a delicate finish.
British coastal settings and the sea at high tide are instilled in this fragrance. Crisp and green marine notes swim with oak moss absolute. The scent settles with a wash of clean and superbly fresh jasmine.
A fresh yet comforting floral fragrance inspired by a countryside landscape awash with the early signs of spring. Orris and violet balance musk and patchouli, whilst settling with delicate jasmine.
Motivated by British history and the symbolic
unison of the rose, a shimmering scent of harmonic Bulgarian Damask rose and Mary rose. Characterful patchouli and ambergris accord.
Imbued with a vibrant and shimmering Scottish heath. Lush, evergreen leaves and galbanum oil delicately blanket floral notes with uplifting rosy and geranium leaf.
A fragrant masterpiece inspired by the legacy of British boatyards. Captivating oud and sensual leather. Earthy, refined saffron and ever- woody papyrus.
Emboldened by a warm dusk light with golden
vanilla and patchouli. Romantic and atmospheric, a modern amber scent with undertones of ambergris accord.
A fragrance inspired by lush forests, a rich labyrinth of wet and potent ivy-tangled bark and sparkling mineral streams. A sensual musk with animalic notes and a salty accord, Ivy Musk enhances the woody, floral and creamy musk.
Inspired by the British countryside of Sussex, with its fields of clary sage. The heady fragrance explores the aromatic facets of the soft, woody amber sage with fresh and herbal notes reminiscent of a vast pastoral landscape.
Each bottle can be personalised with up to three monogrammed initials on the spot at the counter, with the wearer’s choice of leather ribbon, selected from 16 complementary shades.
