Cocktail time, March 1930, London.

A group of architects gather for cocktails at Mayfair’s smartest Art Deco smoking room. As they settle in the warm interior of dark woods, leather and velvet, London’s bright young things burst in, frosted martinis in hand, surrounded by a cloud of laughter, white smoke and fine vanilla.

- The Architects Club was inspired upon reading the story of Claridge’s renovation in the late 1920’s by two famous Art Deco architects, Oswald Milne and Basil Ionides. By 1930, it contained some of the city’s most brilliant Art Deco interiors.

- The perfume focuses on the contrast between the Victorian exterior and the new, sparkly interiors. As the renovation work finished, architects would gather for a drink and a smoke and admire the stylish design of velvet, leather panel walls, exotic woods and frosted glass panels. The sudden irruption of the city’s fashionable youth, with gin martinis, and vanilla cigarettes in hand, adds zing and freshness to the composition.

- Serious and fun, young and mature, bright and moody, crisp and warm, academic and playful, universal and elegant.
