What will survive of us

Common scents

I love scent and aromatherapy. I got rather obsessed with it in my 30s – trying to copy great English colognes by Czech & Speak and Floris. Here is a cologne I made in 2020 – sorry you can’t smell it. It contains oakmoss, elemi, lavender, geranium and mandarin. Scent can survive us in different ways. I had a dear friend you had his cologne made for him in Jermyn Street. Years after his death I catch a smell and think ‘that’s just like Michael’.
