The kelpie haunts a lochside sauna, hissing out a steamed-wood and pink-edged sour lotus haze.

Why you’ll love it
“Pony Boy” is indeed a misty, mischievous apparition, a sunray-through-the-fog of fresh rhubarb stem; indeed the siren song of a mythical creature preaching indulgence or ecstatic truth; indeed serene. Pink lotus can be “sour” but it can also glow like a nugget of rough pink crystal. Some people say it’s healing but if you don’t believe in that, this fragrance is still frank, refreshing, fruity and ultimately joyful, with rarely-seen ingredients that make you want to keep smelling, looking for clues. It can seem delicate but it can also seem invincible.
