Serving Fragrance Love: Two Scents for The Tennis Season

With the Wimbledon tournament starting on Monday and temperatures rocketing into the high twenties, what better time to change up your early summer fragrance wardrobe?

Murdock Renshaw British Cologne

Launching last summer,  Renshaw by Murdock London honours the great British traditions of tennis, croquet and the sporting games of the well-manicured lawn. Murdock themselves boast Renshaw being a nod to the legendary Wimbledon cup.

Top Notes
Garden Mint, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Sicilian Bergamot

Middle Notes
Violet, Gardenia, Lily of the Valley, Strawberry, Jasmine Blossom, Green Peppercorn, Watercress

Base Notes
Musk, White Woods

Renshaw in action

Renshaw starts off very green and almost a little aquatic with that sparkling Bergamot and Mint. The Gardenia, Lily of the Valley follow through with winks and nods to the Violet and Strawberry. The most prominent base notes are the white woods, which give it a little depth, but this is a cologne rather than an EDT. Renshaw is light, friendly, celebratory yet distinguished. Worn over linen, this is a fabulous summer cologne and a word to the wise, that top note of bergamot will keep the little biting beasties away. Strawberries and cream anyone?

Murdock Renshaw is available in a 100ml cologne for £90 and a 50-hour glass candle with solid metal lid for £35.

Lacoste L.12.12 Jaune Yellow

This was a total surprise as for me, Lacoste fragrances have never really shone out from the crowd of those lining the walls of Duty Free or Boots. Lacoste Jaune Yellow on the other hand is really quite delicious.

Top Notes
Tonic Water, Pink Pepper, Grapefruit

Middle Notes
Golden Apple, Coriander

Base Notes
Cypress, Amber, Vetiver

Lacoste Jaune Yellow in action

Lacoste Jaune Yellow immediately starts off with that common alcohol and apple/grapefuit blast that you find with so many men’s scents, but wait! A few moments later it dries down to an almost creamy yet juicy and bright accord with a smooth cypress and amber base. Lacoste Yellow is bright, fresh, delicious and sporty yet seductively smooth; this is definitely one for your hand luggage this summer.
