Savile Row Scent Returns Following Break
British tailor Richard James has relaunched the fragrance arm of his business after pulling away from the market to restructure in 2012.
The menswear designer’s Savile Row scent was initially launched in 2003 but wound up production less than a decade later.
It features top notes of bergamot, mandarin, Chinese ginger, living green tea leaves and petitgrain citronnier along with Tunisian rosemary and Egyptian basil oil.
Heart notes include Guatemalan cardamom and coriander seed oils, tuberose, lily of the valley, Moroccan rose plus lavender.
Both sit on a base of leather, Indonesian patchouli, Indian sandalwood, tobacco absolute, amber, Haitian vetiver, musk and oak moss.
The fragrance was produced by perfumer Yves Cassar, who is also credited as the nose behind Calvin Klein Crave, Emporio Armani Night and Tom Ford for Men.
The original bottle remains unchanged, featuring an ergonomic design, dimpled exterior and glass base.
James said the decision end the sabbatical comes in response to global demand: “I was overwhelmed by the number of people who contacted me personally asking me if was going to reintroduce Richard James Savile Row and I’m now thrilled to have done so.”
A spokesperson for the brand also confirmed there are more products currently being developed, set for release in 2015.
Richard James Savile Row is available now via the designer’s transactional website and select retailers. RRP starts at £60 for a 50ml and £76 for a 100ml eau de toilette.
