A story about the quiet beauty of what was always there
Australia is the oldest continental landmass on Earth. It formed 100 million years ago when it broke away from Gondwanaland and its native plants have evolved, adapted and flourished ever since against one the hottest, driest and most severe climate regimes. Our fragrances draw on 100 million years of beauty and showcase Australia's extraordinary botanical heritage.
Our goal is not merely to work with the well known Australian native ingredients such as sandalwood, buddawood, white and blue cypress, boronia, lemon myrtle, the ironbarks and the gums - but also to shine a light on the lesser known such as mint bush, nerolina, niaouli and kunzea. And then there are those rare beauties that are completely unknown by the perfume world ~ such as our rare Kimberley heath and a recently discovered Byron Bay rose scented tee-tree.
Australia has over 18,000 unique native botanicals. And while not all of them have an essential oil or absolute that can be extracted, we are still discovering new plant species. Our goal is to help bring new fragrant oils to market and celebrate the rich botanical diversity of our landscape.
