Imagine yourself amongst the historical seats of Parliament with this sensually masculine fragrance. Intoxicating leathery base notes, teamed with black pepper and amber create a warm smokey aroma. Lightened with clean notes of rosemary and subtle lemon, this scent is engagingly unique.
Westminster is an area of Central London which has been the seat of the English and British government for almost a thousand years. The historic core of Westminster is the former Thorney Island on which the Abbey was built. Benedictine monks first came to this site in the middle of the tenth century, establishing a tradition of daily worship which continues today. Since 1066 all English sovereigns have been coronated at Westminster Abbey, and seventeen historical monarchs have been laid to rest there. Additional famous English figures buried in the Abbey include Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens and Laurence Olivier.
The Palace of Westminster was built in the eleventh century, and was the primary London residence of the Kings of England until a fire destroyed much of the complex in 1512. Since then it has become known as the Houses of Parliament, which have been meeting there since the thirteenth century. It is known in history as the target of the infamous Gunpowder plot in 1605. With 150 years of English history resonating with every chime, the palace's statuesque Clock Tower fondly known as 'Big Ben' is instantly recognisable as an iconic London landmark and one of the most popular attractions in the city. When parliament is in session, a light shines above the clock face.
