What did you smell, see, hear and feel on your last visit to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney? Did you want to bottle up the aroma of the magnolia trees, the sweet scent of jasmine flowers or the fresh sea breeze from the harbour?
We are excited to announce our new partnership with the luxury fragrance house, Atelier LUMIRA, to create a limited edition scented candle FLORESCENCE so that you can now be transported back to the sanctuary of the Garden time and time again.
The Garden’s Director of Horticultural Management, Jimmy Turner said of the collaboration, “The core of our work is the conservation of plants - but we are also so much more than that.
The Garden is a sanctuary for people to disconnect from the busy bustle of day-to-day life and unplug. Green places speak to all of our senses; sight, touch, taste, sound and smell and this collaboration with LUMIRA elevates those senses by bringing a bit of that peace and serenity found at the Garden into your home."
Inspired by the Garden
A luxurious blend of tangerine and clove is elevated by magnolia, jasmine, gardenia and neroli and settles with earthy notes of patchouli, amber and sandalwood. FLORESCENCE combines the unique scent of the Garden - a subtropical green garden with over 30,000 plants including herbs, spices and flora's from around the world.
“I have fond memories of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, from a child right through to taking my own children there now. It’s an important part of Australian history and I was excited to be part of its story.
The scent was inspired by the lush, floral gardens and my intention is that people can take a little bit of the garden – and of Sydney – home with them”, said Atelier LUMIRA Founder and Creative Director, Almira Armstrong.
