The words of the

“This floral fragrance is an ode to a rural landscape captured in the early morning. Characterised by a delicate green facet, lime blossoms structure the composition. Lemon leaves at the top add a fresh and floral dimension. Acacia wood and beeswax absolute give the fragrance an almost palpable softness that one would like to wrap oneself in. A nod to this snapshot, the cut hay recalls this raw and wild nature.”

Olivia Giacobetti



Of Love

In its tiny, sweet voice, “Vouloir être ailleurs” transports us back to heady, carefree times. Linden flower, Honey and Freshly-Cut Hay take us back to when we were 15. Almost adults yet cradled by the perfumes of our childhood. Little did we know then, that in just a few days, we would be grown up for good. A radiant interlude.
