Floris for Spencer Hart – Palm Springs

by Katie on January 13, 2012

I discovered the sophisticated world of Spencer Hart at the end of last year when I attended the launch of his ultra smooth architected store filled with rows of expensive suits for smooth, laid back architect types. I also discovered that bastion of Englishness, Floris, had created a number of custom fragrances for the designer – quite a feather in his sartorial cap. 

One of the most alluring Floris for Spencer Hart fragrances is undoubtedly Palm Springs. It reeks of sexy mellowness with the louchness of a re-born 1950s Rat Pack member, all tanned and sharp suited and oozing sex appeal and self confidence under the Californian sunshine en route to Las Vegas. It is deeply sexy and manages to combine a sprinkling of lavender tinged freshness with a dry, smoky sandalwood and musk undercurrent that billows and catches your nose like the scents swept up in the dry Santa Ana winds.

Palm Springs commands your attention like Bogart and seduces with the sweet voice of Sinatra. It breathes of maturity, confidence and style. I’d be a sucker for anyone wearing this. If he happened to wander by in a sharply cut Spencer Hart threads, it’d be fatal.
For added devastation, Nick Hart’s ‘Palm Springs’ collection contains denims, chinos, underwear, luggage, shoes and the eponymous fragrance. 

Discerning ladies, I’d advise sighting the Spencer Hart man by holing yourself up in the bar at Claridges and imbibing a cocktail or two while stalking your pray at the Spencer Hart store opposite. Just don’t gatecrash my window seat.

Spencer Hart Palm Springs Fragrance 100ml (RRP £110) is available from Spencer Hart’s flagship store at 62-64 Brook Street, London W1K 5DX and Floris
