About Ostara Eau de Toilette:
A radiant floral inspired by the ultimate sign of spring, the daffodil. Master Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour created Ostara (named after the Goddess of Spring), delving into his childhood memories of abundant, sweet narcissus flowers in Auvergne.

Unbeatably optimistic, this sunny scent delivers renewal at any time of year. Ostara represents resurgence, from bulb to bud to bloom. Immediately, the floral nature of this fragrance is discernible, but distilled through an unexpectedly aromatic opening.

Juniper's bittersweet, juicy cool buoys a particularly piquant violet leaf absolute, so that violet leaf floats and then glides straight through a bubbling sea of aldehydes.

Aldehydic sea foam savors strongly of spearmint which, when it comes into contact with juniper, seems to generate the navy-purple potent tang of black currant.

Clementine hangs in the sky, a dew obscured sun that radiates sweetness through the herbal din. Slowly, clementine's acidity builds up strength and begins to permeate this minty mist.

Narcissus emerges, the spring beyond winter, thrusting up and out of the aldehydic water like a seasonal Excalibur. As narcissus absolute grounds this transition, other florals soon appear of its intrepid stalk; hyacinth bursts up, its silvery soprano rippling outward, while hawthorn's sweet, slightly rosy solidity is matched by cyclamen's aqueous energy.

Beeswax gilds this hydra-headed lily, a sure sign of (re)productivity and an increase in temperature. As beeswax polishes sprouting florals, the cool, bittersweet of Ostara's opening notes dries down into a solid, glimmering warmth.

Benzoin sparkles atop cool vanilla, while styrax imitates a fiery stream of sunlight. Amber and white woods reconstruct a shoreline, kissed by warmth.

A scent that transforms in seconds, Ostara precisely replicates the overnight, long awaited arrival of spring. When you can't enjoy the real, narcissus-laden thing, rely on a Duchafor's magic to melt the frost

About Penhaligon's:

Fragrance is liquid emotion. It unlocks memories and opens doors; it can stop us in our tracks, lost somewhere for a moment in time. Recollections triggered by a dusting of iris, a whisper of clove, a burst of juicy nectarine, a trail of smoky incense, a creamy lick of vanilla. For more than 135 years, Penhaligon's has understood the emotive power of scent. Their fragrant adventure began in the Edwardian era of decadence and carries into the future as they continually create original scents for the discerning eccentrics of today - true modern dandies and bold women who are proud to go their own way. Today, their scents are still made in England using the finest rare ingredients - from hand squeezed bergamot, to jasmine at twice the price of gold.
