Regent Leather Thameen for women and men
“Traditionally, Thameen selects a rare gemstone as the inspiration for each of its fragrances and it is only fitting that, for this project, they have chosen what is considered to be the finest diamond in the world – The Regent Diamond. Over 300 years old, the Regent Diamond is 141 carats, cushion-cut and its colour is ‘of the first water’ that is, perfectly white and virtually flawless.
The fragrance exudes luxury and privilege, opening with the daring juxtaposition of smooth vanilla and sharp lemon. At the heart, the perfumer has cleverly conjured a remarkable leather scent reminiscent of the interior of the Rolls Royce, a cocoon of craftsmanship that envelopes the wearer. The tone speaks of power and strong will, supported by spices and resins including a fine saffron and deep resinous labdanum. The base is glossy, a perfumed patina of elegant and timeless gurjum, cedar and patchouli. Regent Leather is hypnotic and has, in the manner of Rolls Royce, been ‘engineered’ – enabling the finest ingredients to revolve throughout the dry-down, thus the journey is both surprising and familiar by degree” — press release of the brand. Regent Leather was launched in 2016.

Smoky, warm and glowing, the heady amber, as seductive as its inspiration, is lit with Italian bergamot, sensual Turkish rose and warmed through with spices, cinnamon and cedar wood. Glowing” — press release of the brand. Amber Room was launched in 2013.
