Matthew Williamson The Collection & Matthew Williamson Sheer

This month, Matthew Williamson will introduce The Collection, a set of four travel-inspired fragrances. Each scent focuses on notes from the original Matthew Williamson fragrance.

Lotus is meant to recall a summer evening in Bali, for example, and has notes of magnolia, cassis and bergamot, plus a lotus flower accord. Warm Sand was created to evoke Morocco and features notes of ginger lily, musk and sandalwood. Ibiza-inspired Jasmine Sambac includes jasmine sambac notes, while Incense, an homage to the mountains of western India, has frankincense, patchouli and labdanum notes. The juices were concocted by International Flavors & Fragrances perfumer Clement Gavarry.

Also coming soon, Matthew Williamson Sheer, a lighter take on the original fragrance, with notes of lime oil, green tea, bergamot, ginger, jasmine, magnolia, lily of the valley, Easter lily, sandalwood, benzoin, amber and musk.
