A Perfect Parisian Apartment + Grandiflora Perfume
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.
More heavenly white..
A beautiful stone fireplace and big vases of flowers.
Sculptural leaves and berries.
A visual masterpiece..
And all of this before I opened the box… A little pack of beautiful magnolia cards..
Possibly the most beautiful perfume box ever made..

If you have ever stood underneath a magnolia tree in bloom it is one of the most sensual experiences, now it comes in a beautiful bottle..

I grew up with magnolia’s, love them! Her Flowers are divine. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com
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.
Superb images and lucky owner!
You’ve inspired me so much with this post. 🙂 I’m going to go outside and collect my own hodgepodge of beauty for a vase. 🙂
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.
Congratulations Saskia. I so look forward to smelling your perfume…..I tooooo love this flower! Devine!!!! How beautiful to launch your fragrance in Paris.x
Simply stunning Carla, the photos (naturally) and the ambience of this place. I can only imagine the scent – wish I was a florist:)
Happy day to you sweets,
