French niche line Neela Vermeire Créations will launch Niral, a new fragrance.
The fragrance NIRAL (unique, calm, serene) is a perfume inspired by an interesting and unique relationship between British sericulture expert, author, printing-dyeing industrialist Sir Thomas Wardle (1831-1909) and India, celebrating his immense contribution to the promotion of Indian wild silk trade from Bengal and Kashmir to Europe.
[...] Wardle perfected the technique for natural dyeing of the textured “tussar” silk, achieving stunning jewel toned colours reflected in our new box. His wife, Lady Elizabeth Wardle, founded the Leek Embroidery Society working on artistic needlework projects with tussar silk.
NIRAL, through its blend of rich raw materials is an ode to this quietly forceful silk ambassador. The perfume opens with iris, tea and liqueur notes weaving an intricate pattern with floral notes and spices akin to the textural delight of a piece of tussar silk, and symbolizing a unique relationship between two countries linked by a common heritage.
Niral was developed by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour. Additional notes include pink pepper, rose, lie de vin verte, cabreuva, angelica seed, ambrette seed, cardamom, leather, magnolia, jasmine, sandalwood and cedar.
Neela Vermeire Créations Niral will be available in 60 ml Eau de Parfum.
