Juniper berry oil
Wood from Paraguay
An aromatic, powdery amber inspired by the plush and ever so posh Fumoir Bar, the inspiring locale behind The Architects Club.
March 1930. Midnight in a Mayfair smoking room, London.
The elegant imprint of The Architects Club in Mayfair’s smartest Art Deco bar: Spilled gin martinis on velvet banquettes, and clouds of vanilla and blond tobacco smoke all mingle in the cosy interior.
Developed with Nicole Mancini and Yann Vasnier.
- ART DECO VELVET was inspired after several wonderful visits to the smartest of Mayfair smoking rooms and cocktail bars. The exotic wood and leather panelled walls, the Lalique glass detailing and the velvet banquettes have soaked in years of redolent smoke and powdery, ambery rich perfumes. The most comfortable, elegant cocoon of a space.
- The scent’s irreverent aromatic and citrusy notes of a gin martini contrast with the soft vanilla, blond tobacco and woody background that is perfect for any ambiance.
- Bring the splendor of The Architects Club’s to your home, inspired by the original Mayfair Fumoir bar and capturing the feel of the Art Deco movement in the 1930s.
