A new collection comprising eight precious fragrances. Inspired by the artistry of haute perfumery, innovation and contemporary design, each in the series is distinctive for its use of highly sought-after ingredients that harness the essential and mysterious beauty of nature.
This enveloping, delicate aromatic floral draws on the depiction of the Celtic rose as an asymmetrical knot which in turn inspires the Celtic rose compass, a universal symbol of protection, exploration and a traveller’s return home. The gentle scent of rain drenched rose petals is restorative, taking care of the heart, while spicy, peppery thorns protect and empower.
The red lily stands proud and invincible, its exuberant flower symbolic of ardour, self-confidence and passion. A spicy floral scent, the deep crimson of this tall plant’s petals is combined with peppery red pimento. Its narcotic and enveloping scent is blasted by gunpowder, by fiery emotion and intense heat. Blazing Lily is a modern declaration of power and love.
A nurturing armour of light, this intoxicating oriental plays on the shadows beneath the glow of the exotic fuchsia orchid. The vibrant shine of that magical bloom illuminates the warmth of roasted sesame, the bitter depth of coffee and the enveloping power of the Tonka bean. The beauty of darkness is enhanced by the radiance and strength of the orchid flower.
In the amber garden grow incense and benzoin trees. Golden drops of precious resin spring from their bark. An amber oriental, this soothing fragrance reconnects the spirit to the serenity of nature. A warm, soft, comforting scent, its allure is awakened by vibrant spices: cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon.
The flowers of the osmanthus tree exude an uplifting fragrance evocative of optimism, vitality and light. The transcendental qualities of this potent bloom are enhanced by the unique scent of the leaves of Lapsang Souchong tea resulting in a smoky, leathery floral. The pure fragrance of osmanthus petals, reminiscent of sun-ripened, pulpy apricot, combines with the sensual steam of this exotic infusion.
Beneath moss-covered fields that bore witness to ancient civilisations, slow-growing and protective vetiver spreads its tangled roots both absorbing and diffusing the smoky power of the earth. Orris root brings a softer strength, as tender as morning mist. Edges are blurred. A green woody chypre, Vetiver Moss evokes the tranquil sense of walking across windswept moors, surrounded by verdant shrubs and plants: the vibrancy of nature is captured at its most untamed.
Growing in the deep and saturated mud of the banks of the Nile, papyrus is a symbol of life itself and of the place from which all life came. To the Ancient Egyptians, the papyrus amulet was a source of protection and strength. Papyrus extract has a strong, earthy scent, redolent of existence at its most primal. Combined with juicy blackcurrant buds its untamed energy is evocative of vital armour. This spicy, woody floral fragrance embraces humanity’s earliest beliefs giving back an intense and powerful desire for new life.
Everlasting flowers grow wild and free, all year round and in even the most remote environments. Imagine mineral coasts and barren seashores, awash with driftwood and shrouded in mist that rises to reveal tangled plants dense with clusters of deep blue petals. An eternal dream of hope, enlightened by the salt-heavy breeze of the sea, this woody aquatic brings the colour back into life.
