Sandalwood chips

Sandalwood

Australia - Southern part of Western Australia

(Santalum spicatum)

After waiting 10–15 years for each tree to mature, perfumers use a 50-hour steam distillation process to extract sandalwood’s precious essential oil, which exudes a resinous top note reminiscent of myrrh that evolves into creamy, exotic and woody balsamic notes.

We source this ingredient from our partner, Givaudan; they were the first fragrance house to secure a sustainable source of sandalwood from Australia. Their sourcing programme promotes a specific grade of sandalwood oil that is harvested by Aboriginal communities. A premium is paid for the supply of the indigenous grade oil, which is passed on to the harvesters.


Pile of roses

Rose

Bulgaria - Rose Valley

Bulgaria - Rose Valley

(Rosa damascena)

Our rose absolute comes from roses grown in the breath-taking Rose Valley of Bulgaria. The flowers are hand-picked in the morning and the petals are quickly processed to ensure a pure, pristine fragrance. The resulting rose absolute exudes a rich, warm floral note which is much more honey-like than oil.

This rose absolute is sourced though our partner Givaudan and is obtained via their responsible sourcing programme, where they collaborate with local producers to enhance supply chain transparency and to achieve high standards in health and safety, social, environmental and business integrity practices.


Ylang Ylang Flowers

Ylang ylang

Comoros - The island of Moheli

Comoros

(Cananga odorata)

Much loved by perfumers for its lively, rich, sunny tones, ylang ylang gives fragrances a floral, jasmine-like, powdery note with overtones of fruit and spice. The yellow flowers, richer in essential oil than green flowers, are hand-picked early in the morning and immediately distilled to retain their purest scent.

Our partner, Givaudan, works to sustain the purest quality of this essential oil by upgrading distillation equipment to improve energy efficiency and lowering the impact on the local environment by replanting trees used as firewood for the distillation process. Furthermore, the company also supports local education by purchasing school supplies.


Lavender flowers

Lavender

France - Drôme provençale region

France - Drôme provençale region

(Lavandula angustifolia)

This luxurious lavender comes from the breath-taking fields of France, where generation after generation of farmers have passed their precious knowledge down through their families for hundreds of years. We adore lavender oil for its soft, flowery and fruity notes that culminate in sweet balsamic notes.

However, the problem is that lavender isn't the hardiest plant out there and is susceptible to disease and insects. That’s why our partner, Givaudan, supports research aiming at protecting this precious flower from pests and disease.


Vetiver plant

Vetiver

LBP Vetiver

Haiti - Les Cayes region

(Vetiveria zizanioides)

A dry, woody vetiver with earthy, smoky and nut inflections. Vetiver can be sourced from different parts of the world, but Haitian vetiver is considered by perfumers as the most refined and best-balanced variety.

Our partner, Givaudan, collaborates with a local cooperative in Haiti of over 260 vetiver farmers across three villages in the area of Les Cayes. A major part of this programme includes paying farmers a premium and pouring profits back into community development projects such as roads, better access to health care, sanitation and electricity.


Mimosa flower

Mimosa flower

Morocco - region of Khemisset

Morocco – Khemisset region

(Acacia decurrens)

The powerful, rich, and long-lasting green floral mimosa scent is reminiscent of aspects of Indian jasmine and is bolstered by a distinctive powdery cinnamic-honey background and a fruity cassis raspberry note.

Mimosa flowers are hand-picked from the branches of the mimosa plant. The mimosa flower absolute is obtained by extracting the heart notes of the flower petals whereas classic mimosa absolutes are made of flowers, leaves and branches.

We source our mimosa absolute through Givaudan’s responsible sourcing programme, where they collaborate with local producers to enhance supply chain transparency and to achieve high standards in health and safety, social, environmental and business integrity practices.
