Charabanc, a luxury fragrance automobile accessory inspired by the golden age of travel will launch next week at the Goodwood Revival Festival (7th – 9th September) and is available exclusively at Harrods. The distinctive product is comprised of a finely handcrafted, stenciled-steel pomander encased in leather and five fragrance ‘journeys’ inspired by the world’s most iconic drives; Across Pennine Fells, Along the Plain of Castellucio, The Golden Road to Samarqand, Journey to Tai Mo Shan and Monument Valley Drive.
The luxury brand is rooted in the halcyon days of travel and named after ‘Charabanc’, one of the first motorized vehicles that took the aristocracy out on the shoot and on trips to the country and seaside. Charabanc’s fragrances have been curated by one of the most globally-renowned perfume houses and are inspired by the flora and fauna of some of the world’s most awe-inspiring drives. Each scent has an additional note of leather and wood to evoke the olfactory microcosm of a vintage car, creating a fragrance journey.
Its pomander shells are handcrafted by a team of highly-skilled specialist Metal Spinners in the heart of Portsmouth. The leather lid and lanyard are made using traditional methods passed down from generations of skilled craftsmen.
Available in London Tan, Racing Green and Orient Black, the luxury fragrance must-have has been thoughtfully engineered to hang free from a rear-view mirror, fit neatly into the a/c unit or rest snugly in a coffee cup holder.
