Hæckels Richborough / GPS 19’ 51”E Fragrance
A winding country path, overlooked by a single apple tree and a large bush of Elder, leads up to the crumbling walls and grasses ditches of an old Roman fort. The scent of this secluded lane is blown up by the wind from the rolling farm land beyond; the scent of poppies, spearmint, bindweed and wild parsley is met with elderflower, apple and grass to create one of our most intrinsically English fragrances and locations.
