Our perfumes are fully conceived, designed and composed in New Zealand.
We focus on sustainable growing practices, ecological care, sustainable harvesting, and care of resources (using green technology where ethically or environmentally responsible).
Everything able to be done in New Zealand has been done here. We believe in harnessing local ideas and talent and supporting local employment.
All our parfum ingredients meet EU standards. Botanical ingredients are chosen with care to ensure their sustainability and traceability.
Our specialist parfum supplier is ISO 9001-2008-certified.
The parfum in three of our perfumes is 100 per cent natural Ecocert® (ecocert.com) . That in the fourth, for reasons of design and sustainability, is 50 per cent natural.
Native plant extracts are sustainably grown and harvested in New Zealand. The extracts are made using palm free glycerine and no preservatives.
