LONDON VIA SICHUAN

Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea

Our latest travels have brought us to Sichuan, China and its breath-taking mountains and azure lakes. The new floral 
collection is blended with this exquisite region's intoxicating honeysuckle and rare white tea. The legend of the 
goddess Semo that inspired the scent pays homage to China's centuries-old tradition of storytelling.

THE STORY

Legend has it that the Sichuan goddess Semo was 
presented with a magical mirror by a love-struck 
mountain deity. While admiring herself, it slipped 
from her hands, shattering to create 114 lakes.

Mirror Lake was the most beautiful of them all – 
still and pure as white tea; floating, delicate petals 
of jasmine and overhanging trees adorned with 
unfurled honeysuckle blossoms.

THE LEAD SCENTS

We chose two of Sichuan's most beloved and precious 
ingredients.

HONEYSUCKLE

There are approximately 180 
species of honeysuckle across 
the world, and 100 of these 
originate in China. In the late 
afternoon, when honeysuckle 
is at its most narcotic, the 
light around Mirror Lake has 
the same soft lilac hue as our 
new collection.

WHITE TEA

Revered within the Chinese 
Song Dynasty's royal court's 
tea ceremony, only the finest 
tea buds are handpicked in 
early spring. This gentle white 
tea leaf exquisitely balances 
the honeysuckle notes.
