Perfume has the power to take you to far-flung places and immerse you in a verdant sanctuary of blossom and blooms. Lisa Millard enjoys an olfactory journey
A blissful way to discover the ‘from botany to bottle’ fragrances from Dorset-based Partrerre which grows ferns, lavender and mosses, roses, jasmine and geranium in the Tarrent Valley. These four niche fragrances include A Tribute to Edith (sumptuously rich rose), Root of all Goodness (aromatic, warm and leathery), Run of the River (fresh, citrus and vibrant), and The Hour of Dusk and Gold (sensuous silk and spice).
