Slumberhouse launch Pear+Olive and discontinue Flou.
Portland, Oregan-based nicher perfumery Slumberhouse
have announced that their fragrance Flou
is to be discontinued. The reason they give
on their Twitter page is that "Givaudan has ceased production on quite a few of the raw materials it used". However, the company has recently launched Pear+Olive, which is a limited edition fragrance in a hand etched bottle.
Pear+Olive's notes include pear, cognac, chamomile, aglaia, olive, zdravets (Geranium oil from Bulgaria), massoia bark and calamus.
The perfumer said on the Slumberhouse blog
that "This was my first experience truly immersing myself into a perfume project, keeping fragments of pear meat and shaved pear skin along with glass tinctures of olive. I spent these days almost exclusively outside (many nights too), forgetting the familiar and absorbing the simplicity of what life really is - with good friends, ukeleles and a garden with multiple fountains."
The last remaining bottles of Flou are currently at Parfum1
(nine bottles left when we published this), and you can also pick up Pear+Olive from there too, as well as on the Slumberhouse shop
