London by Widian belongs to the sapphire collection that transcends the frontiers of perfumery. Each fragrance is a testament to different cities in the world. It is an invitation to a long-distance voyage into the imaginary- a luxurious experiment with urban scents. The journey is invigorating and mind opening.
London is a one of the few global destinations known for its true blend of traditions and absolute modernity. This unique atmosphere can be found in this singular sweet leather scented experience, one which could easily be mistaken for a refined, rare blend of tea.
The journey forges forward to London, a city of rich cultures and encounters. Time stands still in a refined English salon.
It is the most important time of the day in the purest of English traditions. In a warm, inviting tearoom dressed in mahogany, the light is dim and fine china is set over an immaculate white table cloth.
The clock’s ticking seems to have stopped at half past three. A delicate scent of timelessness floats in the air one could almost sense the touch of oud wood and violets that have been left behind by past guests who would share their tales of exotic travel while taking tea in this very room. A delicate steam, rich of lilies-of-the-valley and raspberries rises from the teapot that sits in the middle of the table. As the complexity of the tea continues to unveil itself as it steeps, an unexpected twist comes from something like leather or an exquisite amber. Finally, the nobility of the blend is proven when the flavours of wild musk, together with sweet vanilla, set the tempo as time slowly begins to tick once again.
