What's in our fragrance?

What’s in our fragrance?

Our fragrances start with a perfume. It’s usually called a parfum (French for perfume) as people think that sounds more sophisticated. The parfum is the ‘character’ of the fragrance. It’s built up through a series of scent ‘notes’.

Each has various things added to it, including water and alcohol, which make the difference as to whether it is an eau de parfum, which is quite strong and will last for a long time, or an eau de toilette, less strong, or an eau de cologne which is the weakest. We offer an eau de toilette, which will normally last a good few hours.

Honor

The freshest of our four perfumes, Honor has citrus-based top notes of bergamot, orange and grapefruit, which give it a zesty vibe right from the start. This is then accentuated with the brightness of eucalyptus, jasmine and rose wood before being beautifully balanced with warming base notes of patchouli, cedarwood and amber.

Grace

If you love floral scents then give Grace a try. With invigorating top notes of lemon, mint and honey, muddled with delicate middle notes of rose water, violet leaf, Bulgarian rose and cyclamen, this unique scent is finished off with vibrant base notes of pine and musk. One spritz of this ethereal fragrance will make you feel like you’ve opened the doors onto a beautiful summer garden.

Maya

Celebrate each day with a scent that smells good enough to eat. With exotic top notes of green mandarin, sweet orange, lush pear and aquatic notes leading to a complex heart of water jasmin and hot gingerlily, the final base notes of creamy salted vanilla, dry fruits and velvet woods make this a really exciting option.

Aspen

Deep, dark and reminiscent of the earthy scent of secret forests, this is the woodiest perfume in the collection. With a top note of rich cedarwood leading to a middle note of slightly spiced sandalwood and a base note of rich dark amber, it’s a perfume for those who love a little bit of mystery.


Fragrance Facts

Perfume’s been loved practically for ever. It has been around for a lot longer than you and me—we hear of it being used in ancient Egypt!

Spritz yourself happy! Wearing a perfume you like makes you feel good.

Practice makes perfect. The more you practise trying out different smells, the better you will get at identifying what you like.

Make it last. If you put unscented moisturiser on before applying scent, the scent will last longer.

It’s a brain thing. Your nose does the smelling but your brain works out how you feel about that smell.

Your sense of smell can feel overloaded after trying three or four scents. If your nose and brain are confused by too many smells, clear your head by getting some fresh air or sniffing some coffee beans.

Women smell better! Men and women smell things differently—and there’s a biological reason for that—women apparently have more cells in the part of the brain that deals with analysing smells.

Perfume can go off. To minimise that, keep it cool and out of direct sunlight.
