This week, Fisher Island Club officially launched its new custom fragrance, “1936,” with a lavish garden party in the Vanderbilt Mansion courtyard. The name “1936” hearkens back to the days of the Vanderbilts on Fisher Island. Significantly, William K. Vanderbilt II began building his luxurious Mediterranean-style mansion, the cornerstone of his winter retreat and today the jewel of Fisher Island Club. Reflecting the opulence of this social icon and the playfulness of the Jazz Age, “1936” begins with bergamot, tea, orange blossom, coriander, jasmine, and rose. It is then blended with base notes of amber, musk, and sandlewood. This complex combination makes “1936” discriminating in its ever so discrete nature, a fragrance for those with the refinement of a Vanderbilt.
