Today my wife and I attended our UK Citizenship ceremony in Maidstone, Kent's county town.
I won't bore you with the details of our journey to becoming British citizens (but it has been quite a long process), but it is a proud moment in our lives.
In keeping with being British, today I wore a perfume from a quintessentially British perfume House, Sartorial by Penhaligons. It's a very masculine perfume, with plenty of lavender, musk, woods and a hint of leather. Some people would perhaps call it a bit old-fashioned, suited to an older gentleman, and while this is a thoroughly modern creation, I can see why some may think that. It is essentially a modern take on that staple of men's perfumery, the fougere. Call me fanciful, but I could see this being the choice of a modern James Bond (Daniel Craig).
