Grandiflora, the Sydney floral design studio of Saskia Havekes, has launched their debut fragrances, Magnolia Grandiflora Sandrine and Magnolia Grandiflora Michel. The two interpretations of magnolia, reportedly Ms. Havekes' favorite flower, were developed by perfumers Sandrine Videault and Michel Roudnitska respectively.
Magnolia Grandiflora Sandrine ~ developed by the late Sandrine Videault, also known for LesNEZ Manoumalia. With citrus, grapefruit, pepper, dry woods, fresh garden accord, marine notes and musk.
Magnolia Grandiflora Michel ~ developed by Michel Roudnitska. I will update with notes when I can. [Update: "While Sandrine’s magnolia is fresh and shimmering, Michel’s interpretation expresses the flower in its full bloom, with its lush waxy petals. As spectacular as a blossom-heavy magnolia tree, with a dark woody undercurrent boosting the heady floral bouquet. An exceptional and truly special offering." With lemon, bergamot, grapefruit, jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose, magnolia, vetiver, patchouli and musk. Via Luckyscent]
Grandiflora Magnolia Grandiflora Sandrine and Magnolia Grandiflora Michel can be found now for pre-order at Colette in Paris, in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
