Pink Living Peony
Peony is sheer pink bliss: a beautifully sweet peek-a-boo between juicy wild berries and pink peonies, wrapped in sweet greens. Peony is a beautifully sweet amber floral perfume with wild berry top notes over a base of sophisticated amber and green resin. This living floral fragrance was captured from a Paeonia lactiflora that blooms late spring along the perennial garden walk at The New York Botanical Garden.
Top: wild berry
Middle: living floral peony
Base: sweet amber, green resin
In a creative collaboration with the master gardeners at the New York Botanical Garden and renowned perfumer Laurent Le Guernec, Caswell-Massey reimagined the authentic scent of the living honeysuckle that blooms at the New York Botanical Garden. Flowering in March and April, the vine grows wild along the pathways, often gracefully meandering onto rocky inclines at the edge of the gardens. The aroma is so vivid and the color so intense that it has become a favorite flower of visitors to identify at the Garden.
Now, with 21st-century fragrance technology, they can responsibly bring the experience of a living garden to you without harming or harvesting flowers using the 'living floral' technique. Applying the living floral fragrance-capture technology, the scent signatures of unharvested flowers can be identified (producing something akin to sheet music), enabling the team to recreate “nature-identical” scent molecules using sustainably-sourced materials (the instruments, to continue the metaphor), without damaging or harming the rare botanical species. These nature-identical molecules are then reimagined by perfumers (the conductors) to create perfumes and eau de toilettes (the finished symphonies) for Caswell Massey's Living Floral collection.
