Jamie Frater, Perfumer & Creative Director:
When I was a student at the Royal College of Music in London, I would regularly attend Mass at the Brompton Oratory, a large neo-classical church in Knightsbridge. The priest's whispered intonation of Latin prayers and the smoke of incense in the midst of such a magnificent building was influential in my later love of the classical world.
The heart of that world was Rome, and the heart of Rome was the Palatine hill, home to the ancient aristocracy and later the Emperors who would rule for five hundred years. It was in this place that I would find inspiration for Palatine, a perfume of imperial Iris and sweet fruits. The iris is the most regal of flowers, and the subtle earthiness of its roots has long excited the imagination of perfumers.
