The legendary olfactory magician, Serge Lutens, leaves Orient and takes us on a journey to England. Five O’Clock Au Gingembre, inspired by the afternoon tea ritual, is truly Old World in its effortless elegance and luxuriousness. Bergamot and candied ginger strike a mouthwatering note and pose an alluring contrast with pepper and patchouli. A touch of honey rounds the composition, giving it a cozy, comforting feel. Never one to be satisfied with conventionally pretty fragrances and never predictable, Lutens gives the composition a darkly gourmand twist with the bitter cocoa note. Traditions and quirkiness, how very English and how irresistible!
