HomeBeautyAngela Flanders debuts new fragrance – Lawn Caroline Simpson April 19, 2018 Beauty, News LAWN a new fragrance from the independent British perfume company has launched – and it’s a perfect spring scent. It is also the first perfume from Angela Flanders’ daughter Kate Evans who now runs the company since her mother’s death, at the age of 88, in 2016. Lawn was inspired by Flanders’ love of fabrics (she was a noted costume designer before setting up her perfume company) and a poem by family friend, the journalist and poet, Vicci Bentley. Lawn evokes the dawn breaking and the sun gently warming the earth on an early summer day and features notes of bright bergamot opening onto a lush tuberose accompanied by black pepper, galbanum, patchouli, jasmine and lemon balm. This is a really gorgeous scent – multi-layered, dewy, loamy, sappy and bright.
