The overall experience of Blenheim is of piney citrus fragrance. It is resilient, soft and mildly spiced. The fragrance starts with lemon and the pine makes its entry thereafter. This fragrance continues to stay on the skin until it fades away. The citrus is not invigorating, but a quietly uplifting one. This fragrance is extremely well balanced.
- Top notes are lavender, lime and amalfi lemon.
- Blenheim Bouquet does not have middle notes.
- Base notes are black pepper, musk and pine.
