Sandrine Videault, the fragrance composer, describes the composition of this parfum as a symphony of chords. The top notes are bracing: citrus, grapefruit and pepper. The middle is clean and meditative, with chords of greenery and dry wood and then the bottom note, expanding and enveloping the senses fuses elements of musk and marine, ocean and tree, petal and sky. Sandrine Videault spent her first four years as a perfumer under the guidance of Edmond Roudnitska. He always said, “A beautiful perfume is one which gives us a shock: a sensory one followed by a psychological one” a belief Sandrine held close to her heart. She was a firm believer that perfume composition should be unique, much like a musical score.

In 1995 Saskia Havekes opened a small flower shop, Grandiflora, in Sydney’s Pott’s Point. Today, while the shop still flourishes its founder has an International reputation, not only as a florist but as an author and now a creator of fragrances.
The Grandiflora aesthetic has influenced interior styling, hospitality, fashion, editorial and even the modern rituals of giving and displaying flowers. Saskia Havekes does not arrange flowers, she curates them. Drama and scale are her signatures. From an artful posy to a full-scale installation, Saskia is always searching for the chance to sculpt beauty out of the bounty of nature and the mutability of the seasons. Her first two fragrances were launched in Paris, France, in 2013.
