At the house of Persolaise, as we gather for breakfast, even the marmalade is created by a perfumer : Marmalade by Perfumer H.


Lyn Harris’s morningtime confection is made of the darkest and bitterest oranges from Seville, at just the right edge of sweetness, infused with unexpected (but judicious) additions of aromatic  lavender and bergamot.



Intriguing, and delicious.

    How FABULOUS. I’ve been meaning to go back to Perfumer H and that would be a good excuse.

    I was in Selfridges yesterday evening and thought I’d see if the Hermès boutique had the new ones, but it’s gone! Will have to try Harrods. I think I’m probably too chicken for a standalone boutique. Though the Selfridges SAs varied from lovely to quite rude in the past.

      Actually I went to the boutique near Marble Arch once and they were fine, even when I dropped a tester of Galop (only a couple of inches). And most of the Selfridges ones were lovely.

    So THAT’S where all the marmalade went! 😂


    Hi Neil, What a fabulous blog! I would love to invite you to visit Ormonde Jayne’s newly opened perfumery in Old Bond Street while you are in London.
