HOW IT WEARS
Grandiflora’s Saskia fragrance opens with the gorgeous headiness of Gardenia and this prominent note remains the entire wear of the fragrance. A full bodied fragrance with fresh green tones of Hyacinth and Water coming through in the top notes to brighten the creamy white floral tone make way to the rich depth of Ylang Ylang and Oakmoss to create a gorgeous and long lasting depth on the skin. We get around 7-8 hours wear with this fragrance usually.
This is the ultimate Gardenia for any Gardenia lovers out there. Like a hot day when the beautiful white flower is in full bloom and the intoxicating scent is overwhelming and almost addictive, Saskia delivers the heady, creamy, sexy Gardenia tones that we absolutely love in spades! This is the type of scent you can imagine wearing on a hot summers night as you saunter down the street leaving a trail of scent admirers.
ABOUT THE BRAND
The Grandiflora Fragrance Collection is the result of an intense love of flowers, particularly transient scented flowers. Those short lived blooms, whose flowers only live a short time. Opening her Flower Shop, Grandiflora in Potts Point Sydney in 1995, Saskia Havekes has a love for curating flowers. Collaborating with some of the world’s most respected perfumers to create her exquisite line, Grandiflora is made in Grasse. Yet the inspiration comes all the way from Sydney in the tiny little flower shop.
