Beaufort London Lignum Vitae EDP

I just adore Beaufort London's Coeur de Noir EDP (which I first tried in my Bloom Perfumery September 2015 sample pack) and quickly fell for it. I also mentioned it HERE.

Latest launch in the niche line is Lignum Vitae EDP which you can buy as a sample (and get a fiver off a full size) or full size 50ml - £95.

I'm such a fan of this new launch. It's mellower and sweeter than Coeur de Noir and is "inspired by the innovative use of materials that allowed 18th Century clockmakers to construct the first truly accurate marine chronometers. Lignum Vitae combines wood, metal and salt to produce a truly unique, transportive fragrance".

With top notes of Black Pepper, Red Berries, Madeleine cake accord, Marine note, Mandarin, Winter Lemon, Bergamot, Juniper, Ginger, Lime, Frankincense and Carmel notes. First spritz brings a spicy sweet cake note to the fore, with a burst of citrus before the woody spiced heart notes appear. With base notes of Sand accord, Sea Salt accord, Amber, Frankincense resin, Moss, Musk and Vanilla which gives the perfume a woody, slightly green, salty sea breeze feel.

I love how throughout the day you catch different notes and the perfume keeps evolving and changing. It's on the wishlist for sure!  Have you tried any scents from Beaufort London? If so, what's your favourite?
