There are women who blossom even in the most adverse situations. They become even stronger and more beautiful with every challenge they may face. The kind of woman who creates poetry with every word, who fills dark corners with colour and empty moments with happiness.
These are delicate yet strong women; women that open up new pathways. These strong women, tender so as to understand a child, then rising to take down even giants. Women who interconnect with life, who serve as a link between lives. These women are desert flowers, beautiful and delicate in a harsh terrain. It is an honour to be before them.
“Desert Flowers” is a collection of fragrances created as a tribute to these women.
Each fragrance from the “Desert Flowers” collection has been inspired by a special flower as well as certain qualities these women possess.
“Peony”, “Dahlia” and “Lily” are the first three fragrances. In each of these perfumes, the delicacy of these flowers comes together with certain qualities of these emblematic women’s personality; desert flowers that inspire admiration in every culture throughout the world.
This delicate flower originally grew naturally throughout Asia and has since become widespread in temperate regions all over the world. The peony, which appears to be a fragile flower, in fact has been able to adapt to all latitudes and conditions.
