The Heart of Passion tells a story of seduction, temptation, and sensuality. It’s irresistible like the most delicious, ripe piece of fruit. Sweet but not too sweet, it strikes the perfect balance, and as it wears becomes velvety, smooth and completely intoxicating on the skin.
A nod to the founder Sarah’s childhood in New Zealand, this fragrance features the Feijoa fruit, also known as the guavasteen or pineapple guava. This sweet, green, tart fruit paired with colourful spices and carnal florals makes for an explosive, exhilarating scent.

HOW IT WEARS
The Red Heart opens with a juicy, luscious cocktail of fruits, then settles into a soft and smooth fragrance on the skin. The soft spices, florals and woods create depth and balance the sweet fruitiness perfectly. This perfume wears close to the skin as it settles, it gives great longevity, generally around 8 hours.
The Red Heart is just like a passionate love affair. It has an explosive, bright opening like a first, long-awaited kiss with a new lover, then settles down to reveal its smooth, velvety, sensual base. Soft and warm, its sweetness is delicious but not overwhelming. We love this for a night out… or in!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Born in Australia, made in France, Map of the Heart was conceived by partners Sarah Blair and Jeffrey Darling. Sarah a film producer and Jeffrey a film director, the brand was formed using film methodology, with a focus on the potent imagery fragrance can elicit. After calling in a team of experts to formulate the scents, the seven-part line came to life.
Each Map of the Heart fragrance comes straight from the heart, taking the wearer on a journey of emotion, memory, and sensation. From pure joy, to lightness, love or aching darkness and desire – our heart is our essence. By mapping it with scent and colour, we can explore what it is that makes our heart beat.
Created by renowned designer Pierre Dinand, the anatomical heart bottles aim to convey the notion that everything that comes from the heart is true and unique. This is the real heart, not a pretty, romanticised heart.
From the heart of freedom, to the heart of darkness, to the heart of love, Map of the Heart takes us on an olfactory journey unlike any other.
