In celebration of the launch of my collaboration with Harrods to create ‘H’ – The Exclusive Aoud – I was interviewed this morning by the lovely Health & Beauty Editor at Harrods Magazine, Jan Masters.
In a candid interview about the project, Jan asked me all about creating the scent, the lavish ingredients within it, and the story behind my 10 year working relationship with the store.
Held in my Haute Parfumerie on the 5th Floor of Harrods, the interview was a real pleasure, it’s never hard work to answer questions about my work with the store that remains close to my heart.
In celebration of a decade of collaboration between myself and Harrods, a store I refer to as the ‘Spiritual Home’ of my Perfume Brand, I present ‘H’ – The Exclusive Aoud.
‘H’ is the result of an invitation from the world’s most iconic department store. Like each and every fragrance I create, ‘H’ becomes a standard bearer for British excellence around the world, and hopefully an outstanding example of this country’s creative prowess.
I loved creating ‘H’ – The Exclusive Aoud- for Harrods. I have blended some of the rarest, richest and most exotic materials available to capture the spirit of the store itself – the finest in the world.
It was important to achieve the perfect presentation for ‘H’ to match the contents within. Each presentation box, handmade in England, features the custom Harrods green livery and the iconic Harrods ‘H’ monogram embossed in gold foil. The monogram is used for the first time in its history to denote, not only the store itself, but also the name is this unique and exclusive new fragrance while also referring to the unisex nature of the scent – for ‘Him, for ‘Her.
‘H’ – The Exclusive Aoud – is available now at Harrods, London.
