CEREMONIES AT THE HEART OF PERFUMES

To capture the spirit of haiku, Floraïku perfumers travel extensively in Asia, sourcing raw ingredients to create perfume collections rich in oriental allure.

The scented collections are interpreted as three ceremonies: Enigmatic Flowers for floral scents, Secret Teas and Spices for the tea-based fragrances, and Forbidden Incense, characterised by its distinct woody notes.

Each of them forms a distinct collection of fragrances, distinguished by the colour of the bottles that are either white, navy blue, and black. Unveiled in a box inspired by a Japanese bento box, each fragrance of 50ml is presented with its purse spray, which also serves as a cap. A refill of 10ml for the vaporizer completes this box. All perfumes and travel refills are refillable.

Secret Teas and Spices (O Cha): wind and memories, white rituals

First ceremony is Secret Teas and Spices
Wind and memories
White rituals

The Secret Teas & Spices collection draws its inspiration from the Ô Cha ceremony, the Japanese ritual of preparing and drinking their beloved matcha tea. This collection comes in a white bottle to represent the sacred gesture of the tea preparation and each of the four scents has tea as its key note, interpreted with a unique spice blend.

Enigmatic Flowers (Ikebana): the dark side of flowers

Second ceremony is Enigmatic Flowers
Each petal
Is indigo

The Engimatic Flowers collection is inspired by the Ikebana ceremony, the elegant art of arranging flowers, leaves and branches so as to create and express a new form of beauty. Each fragrance in this collection, presented in an indigo-coloured bottle, is distinguished by a key floral note.

Forbidden Incense (Kodo): black sacred gestures

Third ceremony is Forbidden Incense
Playing with your mind
Black sacred gestures

The Forbidden Incense collection is inspired the Kōdō ceremony, “the way of fragrance”, or the art of appreciating Japanese incense. Each scent in the collection is wood based to represent the long history of incense in Japan and presented in a black bottle to reflect the colour of the wood and the smoke when incense is burned.
