Last year I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful and talented Lena Korres, who unveiled the debut collection of glorious fragrances.
All four perfumes are free from synthetics and inspired by nature, each developed with a different leading perfume house and named simply for its dominant notes.
As part of an ongoing effort to eliminate potential exposure to polycyclic-musk (PCM), nitro-musk and phthalates, Korres has opted for a fragrance that is free of these synthetic non-biodegradable compounds that are widely used as fragrance fixatives and are known to cause irritations and bioaccumulation; Korres developed instead a formula, preserved with a natural food-grade antioxidant - Rosmarinus officinalis [rosemary].
My favourite is PEONIA/VANILLA/AMBER/PEAR.
EAU DE TOILETTE [NATURAL SPRAY/ VAPORISATEUR 50ml] RRP : £24.00
PEONIA / VANILLA / AMBER / PEAR
TOP NOTES: pear, apple, bergamot
HEART NOTES: peony, jasmine, rose, patchouli, sage, peach
DRY OUT: amber, musk, sandalwood, vanilla
CHARACTER: intensely feminine, distinct character
Peony blossoms were believed to be the Olympian gods’ gift to Healers and were adored by mortals as a panacea.
The concise aura of the peony scent unveils a yet to be tamed character, reminiscent of the high mountains where this beautiful flower grows.
Derived from tropical climbing orchids, the vanilla pod is believed to awaken the senses and induce dreams of love.
A sublime ingredient with a distinctively sweet and seducing aroma.
Pear trees, heavy with sunborn juicy fruits and scents of joy; fruits that lose their rich taste as they ripen, yet become even more fragrant, releasing a long lasting aroma.
Also in the range of KORRES first fragrance collection;
WHITE TEA / BERGAMOT / FREESIA
SAFFRON / AMBER / AGARWOOD / CARDAMOM
PEPPER / JASMINE / GAIAC WOOD / PASSION FRUIT
The KORRES fragrances are available from March 1st and is sold in Liberty's and online at http://www.zuneta.com/.
