Jason Atherton, Michelin-starred London restaurateur and Caterer Middle East's October 2014 cover star, has collaborated with Four magazine and Boadicea the Victorious to create Vetiver Imperiale, a citrus-based unisex fragrance, The Drinks Business reported.

The perfume is the first in a series of four limited edition fragrances released by the magazine, and offers a complex array of notes including vetiver, bergamot, Tunisian neroli, cedarwood, amber , Moroccan Rose, Egyptian geranium, patchouli and black, white and pink pepper.

“When Four first approached me to work on a fragrance I was surprised. My first thought was, ‘I’m a chef, what do I know about fragrances?’ But when Antioco [Piras, co-founder of FOUR magazine] explained the concept to me, I instantly knew I wanted to be involved,” Atherton said.

Vetiver Imperiale is currently on sale at Harrods.
