The scent of hope and optimism. For London 1969, I made three blends: Hyde Park, King's Road and Soho. Hyde Park is open, light, sunny, smooth and uses the new - at the time - synthetic "Hedione," named after hedonistic pleasure. King's Road is full of citrus fruits and Eastern influences. Soho is London's darker side, with animalic notes of ambergris and musk. Notes: Orange, lemongrass, grapefruit, mandarin, cedrat, Moroccan cedarwood, sandalwood, incense, lavender, violet, Indian patchouli, labdanum, musk

Smells like someone melted lemonheads candies (tart, sour, but still very sweet) over dry, warm woods notes. Simple and pleasant, but I don't find myself reaching for this one a lot.

I have been on the hunt for a citrus and sandalwood scent and ordered a few samples, including this one. London 1969 was exactly what I was looking for! It started out with an energizing blast of citrus and settled into a pretty, calming sandalwood scent, with a few floral twists and turns in between. Just lovely.

Happy juice has arrived! Spray a bit and you are tempted to spray more. Spray more! It is so real, like ripping off the actual peels of citrus and having the oils cling to you wherever they spatter. The dry down fades to a lovely lemon verbena. My only wish is that the scent would linger, alas, it is over too soon.
