“I have never been a one for scents in bottles. The great Sufi poet Rumi wrote:

If anyone wants to know what "spirit" is, or what "God’s fragrance” means, lean your head toward him or her. Keep your face there close. Like this.

This is possibly my favourite poem of all time. It restores me like the smoke/rain/gingerbread/greenhouse my scent-sense is fed by. It is a poem about simplicity, about human-scaled miracles. About trust. About home.

In my fantasy there is a lost chapter of Alice in Wonderland – after the drink saying Drink Me, after the cake pleading Eat Me – where the adventuring, alien, Alice, way down the rabbit hole, far from the familiar and may be somewhat homesick - comes upon a modest glass with a ginger stem reaching down into a pale golden scent that humbly suggests: Like This.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Homely comforts This fragrance is almost the definition of a gourmand. In my mind I imagine a cosy kitchen in the middle of the Scottish countryside: red and yellow leaves are falling outside, there's a real log fire burning in the next room, there's the smell of gingerbread baking in the oven and carrot cake on the table, the window sill is lined with jars of homemade jam. This is my biggest comfort fragrance. It smells like an imaginary place where nothing ever changes or grows old, and everything tastes and smells good. This fragrance is like cuddling up in the winter cold by a roaring fire, wrapped in a tartan blanket and reading an old favourite book. I didn't realise fragrances could smell like this! Completely beautiful yet familiar. I can completely imagine that Tilda Swinton had a lot to do with the composition of this fragrance as it is so unique and joyful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect autumnal fragrance This is an incredibly beautiful and easy to wear perfume, ideal for autumn and winter: if it were a person it would have cold ears, but a warm smile, a cosy jumper, and arms full of pumpkins and gingerbread. I think Like This would also probably be a redhead, like me. As I've got older, I've made my peace with the term 'ginger' and this perfume has made me positively embrace it. Ginger-smelling and full of orange-coloured ingredients that smell friendly and delicious: a warm hug of a fragrance :)
