THE FUTURE OF FRAGRANCE

Fiole have joined in partnership with Fortnum & Mason with their collaborative pop-up experience, THE FUTURE OF FRAGRANCE.

FORTNUM & MASON X fiole”

From experience choosing a fragrance is a deeply personal experience so make your generous gift a thoughtful one, by giving your loved one the opportunity to discover their perfect fragrance in the Fiole Experience.

And all it takes is just 3 steps to finding your ideal fragrance from the comfort of your own home with Fiole.

Handmade to match your personal taste. Discover your fragrance personality and build your Custom Fiole Box.

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

Samuel Gearing and Josh Carter the Founders of Fiole have spent the past 10 years working as fragrance specialist for a variety of luxury brands in store while training under some of the world’s most prestigious perfumery’s. Fiole is the realisation of an idea they had after seeing the fragrance industry come to a halt in the wake of Covid-19. The biggest problem was the obvious that you can’t try a fragrance through a device. So, after what has been the largest professional undertaking both Josh and Samuel have ever done, they have built what they believe to be the missing link for choosing your ideal fragrance online.

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

“Using a blind test, your custom Fiole Box will teach you a simple specialist method to analyse your 6 personal recommendations. Discover your fragrance personality or gift the experience now they’ll never forget.”

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

FIND A FRAGRANCE AS INDIVIDUAL AS YOU ARE

Discover your fragrance personality or gift the experience and unlock a world of scents that are built to match your style and no one else’s

Each Fiole Box is individually customised to your personal taste by using the virtual consultant, The Fiole Fragrance Finder to Discover your Fragrance Personality and receive yours.

When it arrives in the post your box comes with 6 recommendations from a variety of top-quality brands that are accurately matched to your Fragrance Personality and guide you how to analyze them in the same way a specialist would. Did you know, once you’ve found your favourite, you can collect a full size via the website and redeem the cost of your Fiole box.

And when you build your custom Fiole Box through the Fiole Fragrance Finder, you can rest assured that each of your 6 personal recommendations come from a selection of the finest luxury fragrance houses in the world. Give it try for yourself!

How It Work’s

Fiole is designed to do all the hard work for you. With Fiole, you don’t have to have any prior knowledge to be able to find your ideal fragrance. The Fiole Fragrance Finder Virtual Consultant will ask you a series of questions that will vary depending on your choices, to determine your personal taste. It will then translate that into 6 recommendations that will suit your style.

The genius of the Fiole algorithm is that whilst it feels simple its astonishingly accurate. It’s designed to put your choices at the centre readjusting itself with every question to find you the perfect set of recommendations. This way, when your custom Fiole box arrives in the post, the question is not “Which do I like?’ But ‘Which fragrance do I like the most?’

Make Your Gift Feel Unique & Personalised

When it comes to fragrance everyone is different. Don’t risk disappointment by choosing it for them. Instead gift the Fiole experience so your loved one can explore their personality and find something perfect for them, thanks to your generosity.

Fiole Gift Cards themselves come as e-gifts or as lovely made sustainable card booklets. You can gift the Fiole experience on it’s own, or if you’re feeling super generous add a budget for a full size once they’ve found their favourite.

Exclusivity & Traditional Family Heritage

Championing independent brands is hugely important to Fiole. Even all the brands available through Fiole are meticulously curated with passion and integrity as many are family run and from grassroots backgrounds. Not forgetting purchasing through Fiole means supporting independent perfumery houses in the world.

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

Why not let Samuel and Josh give you an introduction to the first online mechanism that can take you through a full, personalised fragrance consultation, just like the one you would get like they’re with you in person is also available by booking an appointment on 2nd Floor Fiole Pop-Up Boutique at Fortnum & Mason London.

But, I strongly advise not to leave it too late because you have until the end of May ‘2022’ Fiole will be transforming part of Fortnum’s famous ‘Scent Room’ with a cutting-edge installation that uses their popular Digital technology to take customers on a sensorial journey of discovery like no other. My favourite Fragrance amongst them all had to be the scent included in my Fiole Discovery Scent Box that’s actually inspired by the Smoking Room at Claridges Hotel in London would you believe it or not. I’ll leave that thought with you to decide and make up your own mind about it. Can you guess which one it is?

THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION COOKING WITH HEROES CHARITY COOKBOOK

THE NEW COOKBOOK CELEBRATES 100 YEARS OF THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2min read993 views

The Royal British Legion

Earlier this month St Jame’s House and the Royal British Legion hosted the official launch of ‘Cooking with Heroes’ as part of the centenary celebrations for the Legion. With over 350 guests gathered in the elegant setting of Claridges Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, the event was a great success.

The Royal British Legion Centenary Cookbook, Cooking with Heroes is on Sale Now #RBL100

Cooking with Heroes focuses on 100 regions in which the British Legion has been active over the past century, presenting 100 delicious recipes as well as profiles of 100 military heroes specific to each region including that of Odette Halllowes.

Odette Hallowes (nee Brailly, then Sansom) volunteered to help with the war effort in 1939. As a native French speaker with a knowledge of the country, she was recruited as a special agent in 1942, assisting the French Resistance. Odette was arrested by the Germans in April 1943 facing interrogation and torture at the hands of the concentration camp guards before the camp was liberated by the Allies. For her remarkable bravery she received a George Cross, a Legion of Honour and an MBE.
