Jamie Frater, Perfumer & Creative Director:

Since first reading the work of the little-known English writer Denton Welch, I find myself repeatedly returning to his books. One in particular, the autobiographical Maiden Voyage, describes his childhood in China during its transition from empire to republic. Welch describes “pillars and scarves of dust and sand” amidst “ruined and crumbling turrets and bastions.” His words conjure up a frightening fantasy world from the disintegrating landscape of imperial China as she gasps her dying breaths.

The boy, fascinated by the exotic antiques his father collects, curates his own crude cabinet of curiosities containing chipped porcelain, faded  silks and other relics of that place. It is in this sad collection of broken treasures that I drew inspiration for Feu D'Ambre — a fragrant remembrance of things past.
