The founder of Intime Artisan de Parfum, Angel Cheung, has the great privilege to be invited as the Fragrance Curator for The Peninsula Hong Kong, to create a bespoke fragrance for the new guest room amenity set, narrating the legendary story of the Hotel.
“In creating this exclusive scent, I have strived to honour the heritage and timeless glamour of both The Peninsula Hong Kong and its home city,” said Angel Cheung, the hotel’s Fragrance Curator. “I hope hotel guests will find the fragrance captivating and unforgettable.”
This fragrance’s delicate floral note of jasmine is enhanced by the potent essence of agarwood – a native Hong Kong wood used to make the world’s most prized incense. The warm and sweet oriental note of amber blends with the soft powdery scent of musk, combined with the citrusy and peaceful charm of bergamot and green tea, adding delicate layers and creating a captivating and full-bodied, yet fresh aroma.
The aromatic components of the fragrance all pay tribute to the particular culture and history of Hong Kong. The city’s name, a translation of the Cantonese phrase “fragrant harbour,” refers to its long legacy as a trading hub for incense such as agarwood, the King of Incense. Jasmine, the King of Flower, is to symbolise the hotel’s Asian elegance. While the oriental note of amber resonates with the hotel’s heritage as the oldest hotel in Hong Kong.
“It’s my greatest honour to be invited to create a bespoke fragrance for The Peninsula Hong Kong. As a Hongkonger, I have a strong sense of connection to this iconic hotel, and great respect for its long heritage and acclaimed service. It is a privilege to narrate the story of the property with an exquisite scent.” Says Angel Cheung
