FIRST TIMER: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare, the British company known for its botanical-based products, is breaking into a new product category and will launch its first fragrance in October. Botanical Essence Eau de Parfum No. 1 will launch in the U.K. on Oct. 12, and a U.S. rollout will follow, most likely in the spring, according to Liz Earle. “One of the most common requests from our customers was for a fragrance,” she said. The fresh, zippy fragrance has top notes including bergamot and mandarin, middle notes of rose absolute and lavender and base notes of cedar wood and tonka bean absolute. Ninety-eight percent is directly derived from natural ingredients, said Earle, adding the scent was developed in-house with perfumer Jean Charles Niel at the Laboratoire Monique Rémy in Grasse, France. The fragrance is priced at 39.50 pounds, or $64.80 at current exchange, for a 50-ml. bottle.
