Knightsbridge by Piguet

Robert Piguet presented three new scents at Esxence: Knightsbridge, for Harrod's, Alameda, for Selfridge's, and Rose Perfection, which will be available at Harvey Nichols' store. These exclusives perfumes will be available in spring in UK. The perfume I liked the most of the three was Knightsbridge, created by Aurelien Guichard, Piguet's perfumer. He wanted to convey the image of Harrod's at 2AM at night, completely desert, but where you can smell luxury and leathery notes. It's starts off velvety, sweet and elegant with a mix of vanilla and leathery notes. The flowery notes are not powerful and feminine, but soft and elegant. A resinous note comes out after a bit, which keeps the nostrils active and excited, and they give a certain freshness to the whole scent. 
Alameda smells really clean. A green woody perfume.
Rose perfection is really feminine. A blast of rose in the opening that turns a little powdery with darker notes on the base.
