Sherlock Holmes, A Case of Identity (1892) – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Last year Eve turned me on to a new series on Masterpiece Mystery theater simply titled Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman (the new Bilbo Baggins) as Watson. This adaptation is set in modern day and quite brilliant, I highly recommend it. Here’s a few clips:
In honor of this blessed day I’ve decided to begin working on a tribute fragrance to Sherlock as part of the Literarium series of my botanical natural perfumes. Eve and I have come up with a few ideas to begin the formulation:
~ English smells
~ Tea: Lapsang Souchong (tincture and infusion)
~ Old wood for the Violin
Leave a comment on this post or send me your thoughts via e-mail (roxana at illuminatedperfume.com) and I will enter you in a draw for a sample of the first draft of the fragrance. Also, feel free to give me suggestions for a title.
