"In May 1969, I was 12 years old and flew from Swaziland to London on a trip with my parents," offers Jack Perfumes brand owner, actor Richard E. Grant. "Emerging from Piccadilly Circus tube station, I was wide eyed in wonderment seeing the Eros statue and fountain, whose steps were people-crammed with Patchouli perfumed hippies."
"The combination of Patchouli oil and petrol from all the traffic, proved an indelible inhalation! Earl Grey Tea at Fortnum and Mason on Piccadilly with it’s bergamot base, and it’s well worn leather chairs, proved to be a scent complimentary mix. Seeing the ground breaking musical Hair at the Shaftesbury theatre, featuring full frontal nudity and catching sight of people in see-through clothing in Soho ignited an hormonal ‘rocket’ storm, topped off when Neil Armstrong stepped down from a real one onto the Moon that July."
"In 1986, I was cast in Withnail & I which was set in London 1969. Patchouli oil was my character’s scent. I have bottled these heady memories combining patchouli, bergamot, petrol, ginger and leather into Piccadilly '69."
