?One day in the lab we were filtering six different fragrances at once. I tweeted,?I’m about to get in the E3 bus smelling like a tart’s boudoir??. The replies came back,?You should make it!???I’d like to smell that one???Can I buy some??? so the next day, I sat down and blended some versions of all six.?
It may have come to pass from an off-color joke, but as with most of Sarah McCartney’s more spontaneous sources of inspiration, the end results more than justify the concept. Tart’s Knicker Drawer, despite the name, is anything but overloaded- in fact, it presents the sophisticated, immaculately assembled feel of an elegant woman of the 1950s- fitted waist, hat, heels, perfect makeup, and full-bodied, expensive perfume. In other words, while there’s plenty of notes (as one might suspect from such a blend-intensive fragrance!), the result is both cohesive and surprisingly easy to wear. Indeed, Tart’s Knicker Drawer wears its tongue-in-cheek moniker as a badge of pride, reveling in the thick cloud of big, powdery florals and spices and musky, rich base notes with a seductive confidence. If you’re the type of person who can tell someone that you’re wearing a fragrance named Tart’s Knicker Drawer, then you’re also the type who can pull off something this big, beautiful and fun.
