St Kilda:

Often called the Grand Boulevard of Melbourne, St Kilda Road begins at Flinders St and spans the Yarra River crossing at Princes Bridge, running for 6kms ending at Carlisle St, St Kilda.

Divided into 30m frontages in 1860, the land was used for gentlemen's residences only, during which some of Melbourne's most influential families built their stately homes along the road. The most elegant home – decorated with Grecian motifs – is "Rathgael", built-in 1890 for bookmaker Leon Cohen as a 16-room brick home.

Known as the Millionaire's road, St Kilda Rd was known for its wealth and grand homes oozing of the prestigious fragrance of Blood Orange, Nutmeg & Clove – three things only the wealthy could afford at the time.

Blood Orange, Nutmeg & Clove:

A luxurious masculine aroma headlining blood orange and the spice of nutmeg and clove with a bold leather and woody base notes, often only the wealthy could afford these extraordinary things in life.

Fragrance Notes:

Top Notes: Blood Orange, Grapefruit
Middle Notes: Nutmeg, Clove
Base Notes: Leather, White Wood
