Save The Rainforest
The Earth’s oldest living ecosystems are rainforests, with some that are 70 million years old. They are astonishingly diverse with flora & fauna and we were very clear early in the design process that florals were an important scent note.
A tropical forest with fruits, flowers and greenery featured strongly in our mood boards and this is the path we followed for Rainforest.
The top notes of this fragrance are not high up in the forest canopy but at a human scale, where deliciously sweet and juicy fruits are growing within reach.
Rather than going for a naturalistic interpretation of a specific fruit, we created a quince accord and added African ginger and peach - so altogether you find a delicious mouth watering, but also tart, mystery fruit.
Our perfumer had watched a documentary about the discovery of a species of orchid in the rainforest, thought to be extinct. He had an idea early on in the design process about the scent of a lone orchid, the last one in existence, meandering through the other notes. Orchids are amongst the most endangered species in the rainforests and an accord was placed respectfully at the heart of this blend. Paired with Ylang Ylang and Gardenia which rest on a base of soft musks.
