At the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg lay the eighth wonder of the world. A chamber lined entirely with amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirror, it covered 55 sq metres and contained 6 tonnes of amber! It literally glowed in the candlelight of the eighteenth Century, designed to ‘trap sunshine all night long’. Stolen by the Nazis, it is thought that the original was destroyed by fire in 1945 – the room was re-created and re-opened in 2003.
Inspired by those times, this fragrance is an effusive, glittering bergamot that leaps from the bottle – fresh and energising as it slips effortlessly into a spicy, vivid Turkish Rose, the most sensual of all the roses. The queen of flowers sits atop a heady Amber, as dazzling as its inspiration, smoky and warm. £145/ 50ml, available from Selfridges.
