by-george1OFFICAL national tourism body VisitEngland has launched a signature scent to go accompany The Ashes cricket series.

As the press release states:

By George! features a symphony of the nation’s most evocative smells in an eminently wearable fragrance. The eclectic blend opens with a refreshing cup of camomile tea. The heart of the fragrance takes a journey through an English seaside garden with salty sea air notes mingling with damp earth, garden mint, carrots and beetroots and freshly cut grass. Woodland mosses and freshly cut flower stems of the compost heap sit alongside the sensual wafts of evening jasmine, whilst subtle exhaust fumes of the lawnmower break through the idyll.

Bonza, a rival scent issued by the visiting Australians smells of tears, regret and wet spectator*.

Of course, that might just be the smell of victory – it’s been a while…

* If sprayed in the eyes.
