Bentley Infinite, the iconic British car manufacturer has a brand selling perfumes that encapsulate the Bentley design and character. Sounds unlikely? On the contrary, this is very real. And recently Bentley introduced a new fragrance, Infinite.
I was lucky enough to attend their press day in London. This took place at the Sky Garden in London which has an amazing view, as you would expect from a skyscraper. It is really refreshing to see nature at that level. Ironically, the Walkie Talkie skyscraper that houses the Sky Garden made the news in 2013 for emitting a solar glare that melted several high-end cars parked on the street below.
But back to the fragrance launch, Bentley Infinite offers an amazing scent. The top notes are cedrat, lavendin and cedar leaf; heart notes are bourbon pepper, geranium bourbon and violet leaves and the base notes are patchouli, vetiver from Haiti and ambergris accord.
If these notes do not mean anything to you, I’ll simplify: Bentley Infinite smells amazing and unlike other car branded perfumes, Bentley has managed to balance its motoring soul with a touch of fashion. You would never expect Infinite to originate from a car company. However, the Bentley DNA is definitely apparent with the heavy glass bottle and metal finishes that resemble Bentley’s control knobs.
If Infinite appeals to your nose, I would highly suggest opting for the Eau de Parfum. The price gap between the Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum is really close, so go for the Parfum. I mean, if you are buying a luxury brand like Bentley, Parfum should be the natural choice.
