Serpentine - EdT 1.7oz

"The Serpentine" is a gallery situated in the heart of the Royal Park of Kensington Gardens in central London. The Serpentine Gallery and the newly opened Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, present world-renowned exhibitions of art, architecture and design.

The Eau de Toilette has been developed in response to the Serpentine Galleries’ unique setting in a historic park in a large city, a concept of ‘Green and City’, but not any green space in any city. The perfume is London specific, finding the best fresh and tender green notes from Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park and interplaying and juxtaposing them with the smells of London, the circulation of its traffic and its air. A fragrance that symbolizes Nature in a City. The result is a fresh, accessible yet deceivingly complex and light unisex scent composed of grass, leaves, pollen, oxygen, asphalt and a little bit of pollution.

Serpentine Galleries invited Tracey Emin to provide artwork for the bottle and box. Created in France during the summer of the artist’s 50th birthday, Emin’s drawing takes inspiration from a sculpture she purchased depicting a lovers’ embrace. The handwritten text for the bottle face reads: “The Grass, The Trees, The Lake, And You”.
