The 1871 series scents evoke hues of musk dipped in bourbon, wrapped in the resinous mahogany and santal, saturated in cloves of cinnamon, and whispering hints of bergamot soaked with the splendour of tobacco and patchouli. This series is inspired by the era of pioneers and prospectors. 1871 is when BC joined Confederation.
