Last night we partnered with WORLD Brand to host a magical event to celebrate the launch of the latest fragrance Boronia created by the world-renowned florist, author and fragrance creator Saskia Havekes of Grandiflora.
We have been longtime followers and fans of Saskia, our Editor has followed Saskias floral work for a number of years and we first interviewed Saskia about her fragrances for issue four of Together Journal. To finally meet and be able to work with and interview Saskia in person was an inspiring experience. Saskia’s journey and the story of her path to date is beautifully emotive and intriguing. There is no other fragrance creator quite like her. Saskia’s depth of experience in the world of floristry, knowledge of botanicals and the time she spends every day working hands-on with transient varieties of flowers has given her a unique set of skills that have made her very desirable in the world of fragrance and she has worked with the very best modern masters of scent in the world to create her stable of floral based Eau De Parfums. We will be bringing you more on the story of Grandiflora along with fragrance and floral tips for weddings and occasions in issue twelve. In the meantime, you can experience all five Grandiflora scents at WORLD stores throughout New Zealand. All fragrances are also available online. Below is a collection of images from last nights event, Saskias floral installation will be in-store at WORLD Britomart this week should you like to experience it in person, which we would highly recommend.
