Creating Honeysuckle & Davana
The inside story on capturing the scent of this quintessentially English flower, from our Global Head of Fragrance Development, Celine Roux and Master Perfumer Anne Flipo.
What was the inspiration for this scent?
Celine: Honeysuckle is a quintessential English flower, and it’s not a flower we talk about a lot in perfumery. In England, it’s very rare to not have a story about honeysuckle. It always brings you back to a happy moment. It grows wild and almost surprises you. With a rose, you go to smell it in your garden. With honeysuckle it surprises you on your walk.
“Honeysuckle is such a special English flower, and we really wanted to work with it for this fragrance.”
– CELINE ROUX
How did you capture the English countryside in this scent?
Anne: It was very important for me to capture the bucolic feeling – that pleasant feeling of countryside life – as well as all the facets of the honeysuckle flower. Honeysuckle is a complex, particular flower, there are a lot of facets, and it’s the creamy, addictive part of the honeysuckle that we use.
