Saddell Castle, Mull of Kintyre, is one of the most magical places! I stayed just nearby in the fisherman's cottage in the early autumn and have set myself the challenge of creating the scent of that spot. Mellow chill frisson of the mist, mild warm seashore and seaweed popping on the rocks, hints of mulchy leaves, wet grass, salt on the air, and of course the depth and warmth of that slight peat scent hovering above an evening whisky. What a delight to be able to capture all this in a fragrance. My winter's work ahead! . .
Saddell Castle, and an array of other cottages and house that hug the bay made famous by Paul McCartney, all belong to @landmarktrust and can be rented out. I am already booking my return so I can gauge how well my olfactory senses remember the air there.
