From seed to bottle

The key ingredients for all Parterre Fragrances are grown and distilled at Keyneston Mill in Dorset. The skilled team oversee the production process from seeds and seedlings, through planting in the crop fields, to harvest and distillation. The intensity of fragrance is achieved through care and nurturing of the plants, and picking at the optimum moment. Its knowing what to grow and when to grow – but also when to harvest, distill and refine. Once ready materials are inspected and blended by a master perfumer. The three original Parterre fragrances were formulated by Jacque Charbert (who also put together Guerlain's Samsara among his other creations). 

Each year Parterre experiment with new crops and more perfumes will be coming out depending on which plant thrives. At the moment they are working on a grass that smells like tonka and if it takes off, we might see a beautiful coumarinic fougere next year.
