The White Essences

Hope Fragrance is a magnificent fusion of the most aromatic white flowers - including lily of the valley, jasmine, gardenia and tubersose - the most pure and delicate essences that lift our senses. A verdant note adds a lively layer of crisp freshness.

These four iconic white flowers have a special story behind each scent.

Gardenia

The Gardenia is a very fragrant creamy-white flower, that contrasts with dark-green, glossy leaves. Historically, it has been a symbol of purity and sweetness. Gardenias are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, southern Asia, and Australia.

Jasmine

The delicate jasmine flower has become very popular around the world, especially in the tropics, because of its unique intoxicating scent. Known in India as the “Queen of the Night,” its strong sweet-scented fragrance is released soon after sunset. Native to tropical and warm temperate regions, Jasmine symbolizes deep affection, happiness and elegance.

Lily-of-the-Valley

The dainty white bell-shaped buds of lily-of-the-valley are a favorite for weddings; Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly used the flower in their bridal bouquets. In France, these fragrant “muguets” are traditionally given as love tokens on May Day. The tiny flower symbolizes humility and chastity and is said to bring luck in love. It also means “the return to happiness.”

Tuberose

The Tuberose flower blooms at night, the only time of the day it is active. In the world of luxury perfume, its distinctive scent has made it unique and it has been grown in the south of France--the center of perfumery-- for centuries. The Tuberose fragrance represents voluptuousness and dangerous pleasure.
