Flora is a celebration of the intoxicating white petals of beautiful Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Neroli and Bitter Orange and the beautiful Summer Season.
Legend has it that the sails of Cleopatra’s boat were coated with jasmine fragrance before she set off to sea. The fragrance was diffused through the air, reaching the shore before Cleopatra would. Shakespeare wrote of Cleopatra, saying “Purple the sails, and so perfumed that the winds were lovesick with them.” The idea behind this was to seduce Mark Antony with her arrival before he even caught sight of her.
