The smell that reminds me of Jermyn Street is the Stilton wafting down the road from Paxton & Whitfield.
Any fans of Bel Ami? I loved how late in the day I'd catch a note of it, like an old friend, realizing that over the course of the day it had changed but was still recognizably there.
I do like the names of some older perfumes, refreshingly daft or (now) anachronistic -- The Third Man, Fracas, Snuff, Bandit, Escrimeur ("Fencer"), Yatagan (a peculiar type of sword from the Islamic world)...
Patricia di Nicolai does excellent perfumes and candles in Paris. Curious also if anyone uses her stuff.
Nowadays I just stick to the shampoo and toiletries from Taylors -- sandalwood.
