INSPIRATION

Introducing Herbe des rois¬ģ to the world of fragrance to create a¬†distortion of the classic foug√®re. This¬†endemic rare and calming¬†plant (Pterocaulon decurrens (L.) S. Moore) from¬†the Asteraceae family used to translate the bewitching¬†Lake Alaotra, territory of the¬†Sihanaka¬†(‚ÄúPeople of the Swamps‚ÄĚ)¬†known for¬†rice production and witchcraft.

JUICE

Our lakeside promenade starts with aquatic minty and fruity-green whiffs of eucalyptus, ravensara,¬†combava, lemongrass, lavender, gurjun, and buchu,¬†topped by pineapple-y woody green Herbe des rois¬ģ.

The sharp green gourmand burst softens up then into a heart of neroli in two phases: A green floral lactonic accord of geranium Bourbon, neroli and rice; An accord of sweet heady blue lotus, juicy green melon, vanilla and soft orris with violet-powdery-chocolatey tones. 

The deliciously green powdery aura becomes darker with a green earthy damp woody blend of calamus reed, hay absolute, carrot seed, driftwood and aged patchouli, remind of deforested areas overexploited for rice growing.

A distortion of the classic fougère, green and yummy sweet powdery yet dark and ominous, highlighting the over-consumption of rice as a major factor behind the destruction of the island’s forest cover.
