Penhaligon Introduces Ostara, The New Spring Time Scent

This spring, Penhaligon’s will launch Ostara, a luminous solar floral created by Master Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour

Inspired by the daffodil, the fragrance is a modern interpretation of this delicate and incandescent flower. An olfactory journey – from bulb to bud to bloom. An iconic feature of the British countryside, the daffodil symbolises the optimism and revival of spring.

In 1802, the distinguished poet William Wordsworth wrote about a sea of daffodils in his poem, ‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.’ Excerpts have been included on the outer packaging of the fragrance to reflect the radiance of the flower.

Ostara opens in an affirming burst of green and yellow: Juniper, Violet Leaf Absolute and Spearmint are layered against vibrant notes of Aldehydes, Blackcurrant and Clementine.

Narcissus Absolute leads the sun-drenched floral bouquet, gathered with Hyacinth, Hawthorn, and Cyclamen, which are given depth by the humming warmth of beeswax. The fragrance then settles into a powdered, resinous base of Benzoin, Vanilla, Styrax, Amber and White Wood effects.
