The magical and enchanting story of Blue Tea stems from Marco Polo’s extensive travels to China in 1265, to meet with the legendary Mongol emperor, Kublai Khan. Following the emperor’s instructions, Marco Polo and his men returned to Venice in 1269 with a message for the Pope. In 1271, they set off again to China to take the Pope’s reply back to Kublai Khan. Their journey took them three and a half years along the fabled Silk Road, an ancient network of trade routes that connected the East and West. And now we have Blue Tea. Exploring the richness of regenerating tea, the fragrance evolves around a poetic accord of blue tea and floral bouquet of rose, magnolia and neroli.

New research commissioned by Philips reveals that modern British men have many faces, with the majority agreeing that they juggle an average of four roles each day, yet the traits they value may not be aligned with the more stereotypical traits they believe society expects. To bring Many Faces to life, Philips has collaborated with five ambassadors from different walks of life – from models, mentors, fathers, leaders and artists. Among them is musician, dancer and author Harry Judd, who said, “I myself swing between numerous roles, one as a father as well as a drummer, dancer, husband and friend, so I know from personal experience that men are multi-dimensional. I also have sensitive skin, both figuratively and physically, and believe it’s important to overcome stereotypes in today’s society.’’ Live painting artist Guglielmo Alfarone will create unique portraits of all of the Philips ambassadors. Alfarone thrives on revealing depth and dimension in his portraiture and is excited to realise the nuances of modern British men. Alongside a live portrait session, the artwork will be showcased at Mayfair Gallery on 5 September. Read more
