There is nothing more beautiful than fresh flowers and nothing more exceptional than fresh flowers expertly whipped up and twisted together to create incredible living art. One of those experts is Saskia Havekes of GRANDIFLORA fame. Yes, we are well catered for in Melbourne when it comes to our own homegrown florists, but Saskia has taken such beauty to a whole new level.
We are lucky enough to be carrying one of her heavenly fragrances for our Christmas season gift offering as well as her new publication Flower Addict. If you love fresh flowers, why not eternalise them with scents and serene images from each of these to products.
Blurb from GRANDIFLORA’s website: Sandrine Videault, the fragrance composer, describes the composition of this parfum as a symphony of chords. The top notes are bracing: citrus, grapefruit and pepper. The middle is clean and meditative, with chords of greenery and dry wood and then the bottom note, expanding and enveloping the senses fuses elements of musk and marine, ocean and tree, petal and sky. Sandrine Videault spent her first four years as a perfumer under the guidance of Edmond Roudnitska. He always said, “A beautiful perfume is one which gives us a shock: a sensory one followed by a psychological one” a belief Sandrine held close to her heart. She was a firm believer that perfume composition should be unique, much like a musical score.
