Been desperate for the newly reopened Savoy to reveal news on its spa (which is has to be developing) for an age. As yet, no news. I can however reveal one little feel-good snippet, which is that the French trained British perfumer, Lyn Harris will be slipping into every one of its bathrooms, and wafting her magical scent through its sumptuous, Pierre Yves Rochon interior.
She has already snuck into a swathe of hotels across the world with a cologne specially developed for said hotels. It’s called Cologne 1888 and is a gentle, delectable, elegant thing with bitter orange, bergamot, Sicilian lemons. Decked with heavenly herbs marjoran, thyme, basil and rosemary. And with amber and musk as the underlying trail that makes it more serious than just cologne.
Now, with the Savoy part of the big, Fairmont hotel family, 1888 slips into the bathrooms’ soaps, shampoos and bubble baths. And just for the dear old Savoy arrives Cologne 1888 The Candle. It should also be making its way into Harris’s delightful shop, Miller Harris, which is at the Berkeley Square end of Conduit Street. So, if you feel like lacing your home with a touch of old school, Savoy glamour you know where to go.
