On November 14, flora & henri introduces two signature, artisanal fragrances to their lifestyle brand. The gorgeous Pioneer Square-based boutique is known for timeless collections of clothing for women and children, unique gifts, lifestyle products and men’s accessories. The new fragrances, Alcazar Palace and Isle of May, have been a long time in the making, and are deeply personal for owner and designer Jane Hedreen.
“Fragrance should both transport you and bring you home,” says Hedreen. “It should remind you of your most exotic travels while being exactly the fragrance of cozying up at home with fresh flowers from your garden. Your perfume should be the scent of your graceful grandmother, the reminder of adventure, a night out with your love and the persistent whisper that life is truly beautiful! It is something you should never be without.”
The fragrances were developed in collaboration with Chelsey Owen of Atelier Madrona, and the label artwork was created by artist Kyler Martz. Each eau de parfum will be available in three sizes: 5ml for $30, 50 ml for $140, and 100ml for $250.
Opening with the signature of orange blossoms—a rich orange citrus on top of a beautiful white flower—this fragrance is sunny and warm, sweet and elegant. The Tunisian orange blossom blends with violet for a soft and clean impression. This scent stays bright and lively, thanks to a Peruvian amber note that adds dimension but not weight.
A powdery, olfactive embrace, Isle of May is a combination of rich red roses and fruity purple violets, with a base of vanilla-amber and musk. Top notes of Spanish lemon oil and violet enhance the fragrance’s Turkish and Bulgarian rose notes. It starts powdery, but broadens once vetiver lends its earthy note. Raspberry emerges in the dry down, and it saturates the base with a sweet glow.
Flora and Henri celebrates with a launch party on Tuesday, November 14, welcoming guests in for bites and bubbles from 11am – 4pm.
