King of Perfume

A fun Twitter marketing scheme by Aqua Design Group caught my attention yesterday: the general idea is each week the twitter community are given 12 hours to self nominate for "King of" or "Queen of" their industry - those selected are announced as winners at the end of the period.  As it happened when I spotted it I was just in the process of preparing for the launch of two new fragrances in the 1953 range by Pell Wall , which are based on coronation oil.  That evidently struck a chord and I won!  So now I'm officially:
The above badge is an original design by Aqua for the purpose too: how cool is that?  So if you think you're King of your business, look up #KingOf on Twitter and join in.

Green Carnation by Pell Wall

Green Carnation
                        Eau de Parfum
Green Carnation by Pell Wall

Top-notes of cut grass, green mandarin and clove are fresh and clean.
 Quickly followed by a soft, powdery carnation scent with green notes of galbanum. 
The base notes are a very complex amber and floral musk blend with olibanum and a prominent note of oakmoss.
Capturing the concept of the carnation more than imitating the scent it is immediately recognisable nevertheless.
A great fragrance to bring out the wit and bon vivant in you.

The only way to deal with a temptation is to yeild to it

Orange Spice by Pell Wall

Orange Spice

This is a bright, clean, long-lasting fragrance suited to both men and women.  
It opens with the orangy-citrus you’d expect supported with precious neroli, mandarin and tangerine.  
At its heart are exotic spices, dark orange flower, petitgrain and a lasting fruity orange note.
The base notes are a sophisticated blend of ambergris, frankincense, sandalwood and vetiver with a subtle note of leathery castoreum bolstering the dry-down.

Haiku - a hypoallergenic fragrance by Pell Wall

Hypoallergenic Fragrances 

Some of the materials used in perfume can cause allergic or sensitising reactions in a small number of people. For those who suffer with such allergy wearing a perfume can be difficult, so I've set out to design perfumes with the minimum allergen content. It is of course impossible to be certain that any material will not cause a reaction in someone, but this is designed to give the minimum possible risk. 
Haiku by Pell Wall


My first hypoallergenic perfume is also an unusual and interesting scent. Rich with tropical fruit and precious woods it is as distinctive as it is useful. 

Haiku is designed to provide a light, fresh, clean and lasting, unisex scent with dominant fruity and woody notes and enough complexity to maintain interest without including ingredients liable to cause skin irritation even in those with very sensitive skins. 

A scent for those who usually can't wear cologne or perfume.
