Botanical Essence™ No.9 captures the unique energy that you feel, moments after a rainstorm, as the clouds part and the sun begins to warm the forest floor. Our latest eau de parfum takes the wearer on a mysterious olfactive journey right to the fragrant heart of a lush and verdant landscape, laden with the scent of ripened berries.

This evocative modern scent contrasts the warmth of a traditional chypre with the rich succulence of dark forest fruits. Juicy top notes of blackcurrant bud are complemented by crisp bergamot and vibrant red ginger. Beyond, a heart of velvety rich osmanthus is offset by the intense exoticism of Damask rose and smooth patchouli. Created around a base of woody oakmoss and Haitian vetiver, enveloped within the warmth of vanilla. Over 90% derived from natural ingredients.

What is a chypre?

Chypre is the name of a family of perfumes characterised by the contrast between fresh, citrus accords and deep woody notes. Modern chypres fall into many classes, from exotic and floral, to leathers and fruits.
