Seven Floral Fragrances
Belgravia’s poised perfection conjures up visions of grand stucco fronted terraces and the elegance of its verdant squares. In private residents’ gardens, the setting for so many memorable summer garden parties, imposing Magnolia trees are underplanted with rambling garden Roses and seasonal florals. Capturing the essence of these memorable midsummer nights, Belgravia combines the complexity of Rose entwined with bewitching notes of Amber, Musk, Magnolia and Patchouli.
