CLASSIC ENGINEERING. TIMELESS DESIGN.

Comprised of a finely hand-crafted, stencilled-steel pomander encased in London leather, Charabanc is an exquisitely tangible, beautifully manufactured piece of British design.

As covetable as a treasured pocket watch. As desirable as a vintage perfume bottle. And as meticulously engineered as a DB5.

THE ENGINEERING STORY

FRAGRANCE JOURNEYS INSPIRED BY THE WORLD'S MOST ICONIC DRIVES

Charabanc car fragrances take you on journeys over the fells of Pennine Britain, onto the plains of Umbria, letting you climb the summits of East Asia and explore the heady aromas of the Silk Road.

THE FRAGRANCE JOURNEYS

Across PENNINE FELLS

“Released by spring showers, a resinous Scots Pine suffuses the breeze along with limestone and leaves. And beyond the moss, the dry-stone walls and the hedgerows, a highway to a craggier landscape beckons, glowering and mysterious.”

[Leafy, Freshly-Cut Grass, Resinous Pine, Sage, Lavender, Mint, Fir Balsam, Cedarwood]

EXPLORE THE FELLS OF PENNINE BRITAIN

Along THE PLAIN of CASTELLUCIO

“Alongside a mosaic of flowering ochre, violet and vermilion, no Grand Tourer of Italy can remain immune to the bouquet of cypress and spring meadow lavender that rises up from the roadside. Nor to the delight of towns clinging perilously to Umbrian hillsides.”

[Lavender, Sage, Calabrian Bergamot, Iris Pallida, Amber, Cacao, Vetiver, Patchouli, Leather]

EXPLORE THE PLAIN OF CASTELLUCIO

JOURNEY to TAI MO SHAN

“Guided by temple bells in the bright morning after the monsoon, we drove on, twisting upwards towards the volcano’s hidden summit, tracing waterfalls and meandering streams, intoxicated by the incense and the mountain mists.”


[Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Incense, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Leather]

The GOLDEN ROAD to SAMARQAND

“Further East to Uzbekistan we ventured, our tyre tracks tracing chariot trails of Tamburlaine and ancient threads of Silk Road. In the desert dusk, the hot, musky air became drenched with pink pepper and exotic spices that made one’s senses swoon.”


[Pink Pepper, Green Coffee, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Oud Smoke, Amber, Leather]

EXPLORE THE GOLDEN ROAD TO SAMARQAND

MONUMENT VALLEY DRIVE

“Without warning, the highway ribbons out to the horizon and there you are: beneath a Big Country Sky teeming with cumulus and eye-widening mesa. The raspberry blush of sunset and sandstone shimmering in the saffron air: The United States of Drama.”


[Raspberry, Violet Leaves, Thyme, Cypress Oil, Saffron, Jasmine, Amber, Black Leather, Mate]
