For a perfumer as prolifically creative as Sarah McCartney, saying Saltburn Driftwood is one of the best she’s ever made isn’t a statement we make lightly. McCartney took us to the North Sea coastline once before in 2013 with What I Did on my Holidays. Nine years later, she’s brought us back there with Saltburn Driftwood.
It’s an olfactory postcard from that last bittersweet day on holiday, sitting on the beach gazing at the last slivers of sunlight as they slip beneath the descending night sky. It smells of the chill, briney evening breeze and sand-smoothed dried woods. McCartney revisits her mineral-laced rock pool accord which she used in What I Did on my Holidays; however, where What I Did on my Holidays was a scented storytelling of the day itself, Saltburn Driftwood wears more like the memory of it.
Prior to this, if we’d been asked to describe McCartney’s style of perfumery, we’d have described the bold lashings of colour demonstrated in her work. Fruits that glow with a neon hum, rich and jammy, alongside the sort of florals and resinous ambers that existed before mobile phones. Saltburn Driftwood, with its ghostly transparency, feels like exciting new territory for her, and one she’s navigating with style.
