Having nosed his way into acting, directing and writing, the iconic British actor Richard E Grant was encouraged to create a signature scent. The evolution of JACK perfume, has been one of the most intensely creative endeavours of his life.
I’ve been led by my nose all my life. Having aimed it at plates of food, linen, fruit, books, necks, fabric, flesh, flowers, cars and everything else in between, to finally have a perfume of my own, is the realisation of a boyhood dream. All my favourite ingredients are here – lime, mandarin, vetiver, pepper, cloves and gardenias. These earthy, citrus scents combine to conjure up the hypnotic and unisexy perfume I’ve imagined for so long. Our sense of smell is the shortest synaptic leap in the brain to our memory, and every one of these ingredients is like a sensory trigger. JACK is my ‘signature’ in scent.
