"The difference between the EDP and oil here feels like the difference between finding these flowers alive and on the vine versus having them cut and in the vase. Both are beautiful but only one feels alive.
If Sottile is the simplest of these six fragrances White Flowers is the complete opposite. Ms. Han goes “The Full Monty” and uses almost every white flower known to fragrance as she combines gardenia, tuberose, freesia, lilac, sweet pea, jasmine, violet, muguet, and narcissus. For those who love their white flowers and glory in the idea of being in an indolic cloud the opening moments of White Flowers is night paradise.I am one of those indole lovers and the slowly intensifying bouquet of white flowers allows this fragrance to feel as if Ms. Han is an olfactory florist adding sprigs of white flowers to an elegant vase. The intensity builds and builds throughout before turning beautifully green and woody in the final stages with the addition of petitgrain and fir which adds a clean frame to the floral arrangement. In the oil form this is almost too much of a good thing and is really only a fragrance for those who love their indoles. "// Cafleurebon
White Flowers is the essence of eternal love captured in a bouquet of all white flowers: gardenia, tuberose, freesia, lilac, sweet pea, and narcissus. Unlike other floral perfumes, this fragrance has a clean, green finish accomplished with hints of pettitgrain and Siberian fir. It’s a classic floral with modern finesse. Delicate, sophisticated, and elegant.
PERFUMER’S NOTES: White Flowers is a complex floral fragrance with a green finish. People often ask me what that means. It means that there are many white flowers in this fragrance but, unlike other floral fragrances, this perfume does not linger nor become sweet or cloying. Instead, it has a green finish, which is like a wine with a dry finish. When you smell this fragrance, you notice how complex the floral notes are and then notice that fresh finish. The fresh finish comes from the pettitgrain and Siberian fir, which give this fragrance the feeling of an immense bouquet of freshly picked flowers. My mother is a master of Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement. She would often talk about the balance in a composition, which isn’t just about the bloom of the flower but also the relationship of the flower to the stems and leaves, the vessel and space. This is the idea I used to compose White Flowers. I originally created this scent to honor the white flowers in a wedding bouquet, but it has become much more than that. When you wear this fragrance, you might feel transported outdoors. There’s a natural aromaticquality to it that smells great on men. You might think it would be too floral, but, on men, the green notes come forward and the floral notes fall back. It’s wonderfully fresh, but also complex and sophisticated. I fall in love with this fragrance over and over again because it never fails to surprise me.
