We invite you along on a sophisticated and romantic period of art and harmony, celebrating eclectic decadence from an era through exquisite perfumes, from floral explosions in VII Queen Anne, to aphrodisiac notes of vanilla and bold orientals in XXI Art Deco
A winter perfume is so much more than a holiday or party fragrance. The palette of perfumes opens up to welcome in the warm and striking notes that complement the season. Seasonal ingredients from rich and resinous ambers, suede and leather accords, sweet spices, intoxicating vanilla and earthy moss and woods.

As the name suggests woody fragrances are distinctive by their opulent woody character with notes coming from woods materials like trees, resin, moss, bark, pine cones and bushes but also roots. Grasses and leaves can have an intensely earthy, woody character.

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION
Perfume and the practice of perfuming is thousands of years old. The first actual “factory” dedicated to the production of perfumed oils dates back 4000 years on the island of Cyprus. In the 19th century synthetic aroma chemicals, called aldehydes, were first discovered and the fragrance industry became what we know it to be today – a great spectrum of different and diverse scents and not just for royalty and nobility as it had been in the past. Over 1000 new fragrances are launched every year.
Fougere means ‘fern-like’ in French and describes one of the main fragrance families that also include Floral, Oriental, Woody, Chypre, Gourmand, Fruity and Citrus. Fragrance families are ‘parent groups’ of scents that have been categorised based on their scent. Fragrances are classified by their dominant accord, which gives them their principal character, and then further subdivides their more nuanced components.
