Hidden pleasures

Hidden pleasures

Our latest scent, Chiswick Herb, is inspired by one of our favourite places, West London’s Chiswick House. It’s an appreciation of how even in the chaos and noise of the city, we can find sweet sanctuary and uplifting scents. Here we celebrate some of our favourite inner-city hideaways in the world…

Gardens by the Bay, Singapore
In a city of nearly 6million, the attention to green space found in Singapore is wonderful. 101 hectares of public parkland, first opened in 2012, includes the towering 'super trees' which are illuminated at night. 

Conservatory garden, New York City
This is a hidden garden within the city's iconic Central Park. Enter on 5th Avenue between 104th and 105th and you'll find tiered hedges, a wisteria pergola and fountain probably all to yourself. 

Giardino delle Arance, Rome
The Orange Garden is one of Rome's most loved parks. A private garden with seclusion and calm within the citrus groves. It offers stunning views at dusk.

The Botanical Gardens, Glasgow
Kibble Palace is the centre piece of Glasgow’s popular park. The glasshouse houses a collection of ferns from Australia and New Zealand which date back over 120 years. The garden has a real sense of calm in a city known for its rambunctious residents! 

The POPOS of San Francisco
SF's financial district is littered with POPOS (privately owned public spaces) which are often hard to find. This guide helps find the well-hidden places of urban calm. Check out Redwood Park in the Transamerica building.
