Bentley BEYOND, The Collection: A Fragrant Voyage into Elegance

Bentley Motors has always been synonymous with exploration and travel. From the early age of 14, founder Walter Owen Bentley, fondly known as “W.O.,” embarked on a remarkable 209-kilometer bicycle journey from London to Norfolk in a single day. He later described the joy of travel as “one of man’s fundamental desires.”

Celebrating the brand’s exceptional heritage, Bentley BEYOND The Collection takes us on a sensory journey through extraordinary landscapes, infusing every adventure with olfactory emotion, and every fragrance with the spirit of travel.

Crafted by master perfumers, Bentley BEYOND The Collection unites exceptional ingredients with exotic destinations, offering a luxurious olfactory wardrobe that blends outstanding craftsmanship, high-quality materials, and originality. It caters to the most discerning clientele—for whom a perfume is more than an accessory; it’s a statement, an adventure.

After Acapulco in Mexico with Exotic Musk, Goa in India with Majestic Cashmere, and Java in Indonesia with Wild Vetiver, the latest creation transports us to Panama with a unique composition, warm, woody, and amber-toned: Magnetic Amber—a fragrance that embraces all perfume enthusiasts.

Beyond Trends. Beyond Borders. Beyond Time… A Liquid Emotion.

The Perfume

With Magnetic Amber, Master Perfumer Karine Dubreuil-Sereni, who also curates the women’s line of Beyond, The Collection, invites us on an olfactory journey to a land of contrasts inspired by one of Panama’s exotic treasures: mysterious white amber.

“When working on a project for Bentley, certain words immediately come to mind and are crucial for this collection: luxury, refinement, elegance, the use of the finest raw materials at their highest quality,” explains Karine Dubreuil-Sereni.

The fragrance opens with a cheerful blend of Italian bergamot, Moroccan rosemary, and the zesty lemony essence of cardamom—a spice with both cool and warm facets, as the perfumer notes. The enigmatic frankincense resin adds citrusy and subtly woody tones to this fresh composition.

The heart of the fragrance unfolds in a captivating, warm accord, harmonizing two South American treasures: a sensual, smoky vanilla (sourced from Madagascar in Magnetic Amber) and tonka bean with hints of almond and tobacco. Their delectable gourmand aromas meld into the velvety embrace of white amber, giving the fragrance its name. “The note is derived from Ambroxan, a raw material extracted from clary sage and therefore of natural origin,” explains Karine Dubreuil-Sereni. Salty, satiny like driftwood, evoking sun-kissed skin and amber, this addictive ingredient is almost a fragrance in itself—the key to the unique magnetism of the new creation.

In Magnetic Amber, this captivating note is enhanced by the resinous warmth of labdanum and underpinned by elegant Virginia cedar, creating a rich, powerful trail that seems to linger endlessly in the fragrant breezes of Panamanian nights.

The Bottle

The flacon and case of Bentley BEYOND The Collection, born from the expertise of Bentley Motors’ design studio, were created with the same unwavering commitment and attention to detail as the brand’s automobiles.

Designed in collaboration with Bentley Motors’ designers, the majestic, faceted flacon echoes the iconic headlights inspired by cut crystal glasses of the Continental GT. The stability of the weighty 400-gram bottle is ensured by a thick glass base, while the legendary “Winged B” logo is engraved on the silver metal shoulders of the flacon.

The enticing amber hue of the new fragrance mirrors its character: fascinating, delicious, addictive—a sumptuous journey through the olfactory secrets of South America: its smoky rums, fragrant woods, and delectable blossoms.

For the first time, with Magnetic Amber, the Collection introduces a new eco-responsible natural material echoing the natural elements used in the fragrance: wood. Wood is used for the ring encircling the bottle’s cap and the plate adorning the beige box, embellished with the “Winged B” logo and the collection’s name.

The bottle is a majestic reflection of the brand’s luxurious codes.

In Conclusion

Bentley BEYOND, The Collection eau de parfum, presented in a 100ml bottle, embodies the essence of Bentley’s legacy, encapsulating the spirit of exploration, travel, and elegance in each drop. It invites perfume enthusiasts to embark on a fragrant journey that transcends trends, borders, and time itself—a journey into the heart of exquisite craftsmanship and sensory delight.
