PARTERRE: FROM SEED TO BOTTLE

Deep down in Dorset, a brand new British fragrance house has quietly been changing the face of perfumery… and now they’re ready to reveal all at this extra special Perfume Society event.

A while back we visited a beautiful Botanic Gardens in Dorset called Keyneston Mill, where some very exciting things were afoot, including the creation of a brand new English fragrance house: Parterre. But Parterre is unlike most perfume houses, in that all of their fragrances' key ingredients are grown on British soil – including some experimental crops never before grown in this country!

We are delighted to invite you to an evening exploring this captivating fragrance house, their unique ingredients and fascinating distillation methods. An extremely rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of perfumery, join us at Rakesprogress to experience their garden installation, as Parterre bring a piece of their Dorset oasis to Covent Garden.

Our co-founder Jo Fairley will be in conversation with their fragrance consultant, Virginie Daniau, touching on British ingredients, exotic crops and the incredible innovation happening down at Keyneston Mill.

Ever wondered how fragrance distillation works? They will be live distilling ingredients in the space, so you'll have the amazing chance to see this first-hand. You'll also have the opportunity to smell English Vetiver (the first ever grown in this country, and we can tell you, it smells quite remarkable!) as well as a host of other special ingredients from Parterre's palette.

Founders Julia and David Bridger worked with Master Perfumer Jacques Chabert to bottle the wonder of their gardens, and there'll be the chance to smell their three limited edition fragrances, which are captivating and enchanting in their own ways. From A Tribute to Edith; a charming ode to (La Vie en) rose, to Run of the River; a uplifting and zingy blend with bergamot mint, each is a wonderful showcase of untypical ingredients.

We so look forward to having you at this very exciting experiential event with a British fragrance house that's bursting with innovation.
