AUSTRALIA - SOUTHERN PART OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA

(Santalum spicatum)

After waiting 10-15 years for each tree to mature, perfumers use steam distillation, a 50-hour 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, who was 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 to the harvesters. Explore the full collection here.

BULGARIA - ROSE VALLEY

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

This source of rose absolute is part of our partner Givaudan’s responsible sourcing program, whereby 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.

COMOROS - THE ISLAND OF MOHELI

COMOROS

(Cananga Odorata)

Much loved by perfumers for its lively, solar, and rich tones, ylang ylang lends a floral, jasmine-like, powdery facet with overtones of fruit and spice to the fragrance. The yellow flowers, richer in essential oil than green flowers, are handpicked early in the morning and immediately distilled to keep their purest scent.

Our partner, Givaudan, works to sustain the purest quality of the essential oil by supporting the upgrading of distillation equiptment to improve energy efficiency, and lowering the impact on the local environment by replanting trees used as fuelwood for distillation, while also supporting local education with school supplies.

This luxurious lavender comes from the breath-taking fields of France, where generation after generation of farmer has passed their precious knowledge down the family tree for hundreds of years. We adore lavender oil for its soft, flowery, and fruity notes that round off with sweet balsamic notes.

A woody dry 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 vetiver.

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 program includes paying farmers a premium and pouring profits back into community development projects like roads, better access to health care, sanitation, and electricity.
