An Evening With Grandiflora Scent Soirée - May 10th
Join us for an evening of champagne and canapes as niche perfume expert Lucy Borland leads us through an exploration of the newly launched Grandiflora Fragrances at Sweet Fern.
In 1995 Saskia Havekes opened a small flower shop, Grandiflora, in Sydney’s Pott’s Point. Today, while the shop still flourishes its founder has an International reputation, not only as a florist but as an author and now a creator of fragrances.
The Grandiflora aesthetic has influenced interior styling, hospitality, fashion, editorial and even the modern rituals of giving and displaying flowers. Saskia Havekes does not arrange flowers, she curates them. Drama and scale are her signatures. From an artful posy to a full-scale installation Saskia is always searching for the chance to sculpt beauty out of the bounty of nature and the mutability of the seasons.
Havekes has shared her passion for flowers in the publication of four books, GRANDIFLORA (Viking, 1999), GRANDIFLORA ARRANGEMENTS (Penguin, 2007), GRANDIFLORA CELEBRATIONS (Penguin, Lantern 2011), and FLOWER ADDICT (Penguin, Lantern 2015).
Accenting natural beauty, highlighting remarkable events or cleverly suggesting wilder ways to arrange flowers and foliage, each book reveals a rich insight into the Grandiflora vision. 2013 saw the Paris launch of her first two fragrances MAGNOLIA GRANDIFLORA SANDRINE and MAGNOLIA GRANDIFLORA MICHEL. 2015 MADAGASCAN JASMINE launched in the beautiful store Fenwick in London.
In 2016 QUEEN OF THE NIGHT was launched under a rare pink moon in the historic Roudnitska family garden, Cabris, France and 2017 saw launch of her 5th fragrance, BORONIA, at Pitti Fragranze in Florence, Italy.
This interactive event will be an engaging chat and opportunity to explore raw perfumery ingredients whilst learning more about this incredible Australian brand by Potts Point florist extraordinaire Saskia Havekes.
Your $45 booking fee is fully redeemable on a bottle of fragrance on the night and we will also have signed copies of Saskias book available to purchase.
Find a beautiful scent for Mother’s Day, bring your mum, daughter, son, friend or treasured colleague.
A must for those curious about perfumery, floristry and the beauty of both!
