Oliver says he takes inspiration from all these formative smells. On show for the first time was a new candle in a beautifully carved marble container. “My father had a business carving marble, he wasn’t famous, but he was very well known in Andalusia. Sometimes when I was a child he used to invite me to come with him to learn about the business. In his workshop he used this special glue when he needed to stick marble together. It smells like styrax. It’s a really special smell. This candle is about that memory.”
Three new perfumes have been launched for the Pitti fair described as:
(Notes include: Labdanum, Styrax, Vetiver, Ambergris, Musk, Osmanthus, Orange peel, Clove Bud.)
(Tolu, Elemi, Myrrh, Labdanum, Opoponax, Jasmine Sambac, Somali Incense, Benzoin Siam, Coffee Latte, Australian Fire Tree, Rooibos, Mace, Tonka Bean, Star Anise.)
