Tommi Sooni's latest offering

I am very proud to announce that my good friend Steven Broadhurst, the creative director behind Tommi Sooni has chosen Peony to launch his second Eau de Parfum 'Jinx'.
Jinx is a gorgeous Soft Floral with classically balanced notes:

Head Notes: Ripe Fig, Green Vine Leaves, Grapefruit, Basil, Aldehydes
Heart Notes: Muguet, Rose Wardia, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine
Base Notes: Crystallised Ginger, Vetiver, White Moss, Cistus Labdanum, Ambergris, White Musk

The Jinx perfume story:

Artists fall on the inspiration of a muse to create beauty with passion. Original, striking, alluring: Jinx the eau de parfum by Tommi Sooni, created for celebrated designer Vanessa Layjonhelm. Vanessa traces her bloodlines back to the islands of Greece, the land of ancient myths where Jinx the perfume was born. A light touch of Jinx on your skin opens with the full and bursting fruits of a fig tree under the clear Grecian sky. Shaded afternoon breezes drift through the green vine leaves and carry their scent to the sea. Fragrant traces of crushed basil on the palms of an adoring father as he embraces Vanessa, his precious child. A scented arrangement of flowers for our muse, and you to embrace: jasmine, muguet, rose and ylang ylang. For depth and strength of character we introduce moss, vetiver, rock rose and white musk. The flashes of genius we see in Vanessa's creations are here too in the use of crystallised ginger.

Jinx is simply a must try when you are next visiting Peony. Congratulations Steven, Jinx is superb!!

50ml Eau de Parfum - $180
