When many of you asked us to create an uplifting fragrance, we began an exciting three-year journey working with master perfumer Jean-Charles Niel to develop our first fine fragrance, Botanical Essence™ No.1 Eau de Parfum − a fresh citrus scent with an exquisite floral heart inspired by our iconic Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic, and featuring Liz's favourite botanical, rose-scented geranium.
For our second fine fragrance, Botanical Essence™ No.15 Eau de Parfum, our customers requested something a little more sensual and seductive for the evenings. Working alongside award-winning perfumer Alienor Massenet, we blended fifteen of the world's most precious botanicals to create an entirely new fragrance category − the fresh oriental − with notes of exotic spice and a Damask rose heart.
Our third fine fragrance, Botanical Essence™ No.100 Eau de Parfum, was created as a result of a truly special collaboration with The Royal Horticultural Society, honouring the 100th anniversary of The Chelsea Flower Show – Liz's favourite annual event. This enchanting floral captures the sublime, uplifting joy of entering a British florist’s shop and complements the rest of our collection, combining rose-scented geranium and Damask rose with fresh white florals.
Our fourth, and most recent, fine fragrance marks our 20th anniversary as a Great British brand. To celebrate, we’ve returned to our original inspiration collaborating with Grasse-based perfumer, Domitille Bertier, to make Damask rose the hero of our fresh, spicy floriental − Botanical Essence™ No.20 Eau de Parfum.
All our fine fragrances have been sourced using the finest quality ingredients from around the world and are handcrafted by leading French perfumers.
Botanical Essence™ No.20 Eau de Parfum
To celebrate our 20th birthday, we’ve collaborated with Grasse-based perfumer Domitille Bertier to make Damask rose the hero of our spicy floriental Botanical Essence™ No.20 Eau de Parfum. Infused with beautiful, feminine sophistication, our newest fragrance is over 87% derived from natural ingredients and resonates with sandalwood and a heart of Damask rose – the most opulent and quintessentially beautiful of all flowers. Make every day a celebration with this sparkling rose garden in a bottle.
Botanical Essence™ No.100 Eau de Parfum
Our fresh floral fragrance, Botanical Essence™ No.100, has also been created by Alienor Massenet and is over 90% derived from natural ingredients. Experience the blossoming notes of Damask rose, orange flower and Indian jasmine, gently entwined with the subtle sensuality of cypress, sandalwood and Bourbon vanilla, finished by the light, transcendent clarity of mandarin and bergamot.
Botanical Essence™ No.15 Eau de Parfum
Fifteen precious botanicals from around the globe including pink pepper, bergamot and sandalwood have been carefully selected and handcrafted by one of the world's leading female perfumers to create Botanical Essence™ No.15 Eau de Parfum. With over 90% directly derived from natural ingredients, this fresh spicy oriental scent is synonymous with feeling seductive and elegant.
We've been very fortunate to work with an award-winning French female perfumer, Alienor Massenet, to create this sensual, feminine eau de parfum.
It's unusual to work with such a high spend per kilo – it meant we could choose ingredients of a very high quality. I felt like a chef who gets to play with all the special ingredients!.Alienor Massenet
Botanical Essence™ No.1 Eau de Parfum
Over 98% directly derived from natural ingredients, this sparkling, vibrant scent is a complex blend of botanicals. Some, such as mandarin orange, are new to us, but others like high-altitude lavender you may already recognise from our Hand Repair™, Superskin™ Concentrate for Night and Superbalm™.
