How do we obtain our fragrances?
Our fragrances contain two types of ingredients: natural essential oils, and what experts call "absolute".
In order to obtain high quality essential oils, our perfumers use a process called Hydrodistillation.
First, the stems and flowers are placed in a bowl of water, and boiled. Whilst boiling, a vapour is produced that contains essential oils. Through a decanting process (solid molecules are separated from liquid ones), solid molecules are extracted from the essential oils. Thus, no solvent is used: just flowers, stems and water.
In order to obtain the "absolute", a cold extraction is carried out. First, the molecules that provide the essence of the fragrance are separated and purified using a renewable solvent to eliminate any residue. This brings out the most profound and intense olfactory notes.
