THE ALCHEMIST'S GARDEN
The Eaux De Parfum
A pastiche of reference points guided the creation of seven eau de parfum which champion a hero ingredient for each scent: rose, oud, amber, violet, woods, iris and mimosa. The perfumes are contained in a decorative porcelain bottle, with whimsical illustrations and evocative names. ‘A Song for the Rose’ is an expression of absolute femininity and features notes of rose with musk and woods.

The Acque Profumate
Revealing the House’s pink rose print, the Acque Profumate bottles are crafted from white lacquered glass, each celebrating a single note in modern compositions. ‘Fading Autumn’ has a fragrance of bois modern, ‘A Winter Melody’ features a note of cypress and ‘Moonlight Serenade’ lavender.
The Perfumed Oils
Sage green toned lacquered glass bottles for the perfumed oils reveal a touche Oreille. The glass pipette style applicator is a vintage way to apply the scents blended with previous raw materials: rose in ‘A Forgotten Rose’, oud in ‘Nocturnal Reverie’, violet in ‘The Violet Kiss’ and bois modern in ‘Ode on Melancholy’.
The Scented Candle
‘The Virgin Violet’ is a delicate composition of musk and iris petals, and violet extract emits a soft, powdery fragrance.
