A Perfect Parisian Apartment + Grandiflora Perfume

Carla Coulson Paris Grandiflora perfume launch

You may remember I posted the launch of Grandiflora Magnolia perfume a couple of months ago in a fabulous Parisian apartment in Place des Vosges???

Well the great news is Grandiflora is on the market!!! Woohoo..So for all you lovers of Magnolia a little French moment again..

Who could resist an invitation from the fabulous Australian florist Saskia Havekes of Grandiflora to her signature perfume launch in Paris in a knock-out apartment in Place des Vosges. Not me..

I have been dying to meet the divine Saskia for years as she is not only one of the world’s most talented florists she is a darling friend of my publisher and has made some of the most beautiful books on the planet, Grandiflora Arrangements and Grandiflora Celebrations.

So on an glorious Parisian day I mounted the stone steps with a lot of  inner ‘oohh la la’s’ in the beautiful Places des Vosges to be greeted by the innovative work of Saskia, the beautiful Saskia and her amazing perfume.

For someone who loves flowers and perfume as much as I do this was the perfect invitation. Beautiful details everywhere including the wonderful Magnolia, the inspiration for the perfume.

  • We have a young friend who works for Saskia and she often regales us with stories of their latest creations. She’s also inspired by Saskia’s approach to her floral work, employing artists from different disciplines. Truly an artist. It’s fitting she has her own scent. Beautifully captured Carla.

  • We have a young friend who works with Saskia and she regales us with stories of their latest creations. I love the fact that she employs people from different artistic disciplines, not just floristry. As a designer I find that really inspiring. It’s fitting that she now has her own scent. You’ve captured it beautifully Carla.
