AMOUAGE INVITES YOU TO REDISCOVER ITS SECRET GARDEN WITH LATEST CREATION, LOVE DELIGHT

The universe of Amouage has always encompassed a breathtaking variety of landscapes. From the boundary-pushing territory of the Library Collection, to the complex realm of the Exceptional Extraits, each facet of the House’s creativity has reflected the numerous possibilities offered by the art of perfumery. The Secret Garden Collection occupies a singular position in this rarefied space. Since its inception in 2016, it has been an invitation to enter the uniqueness of the Amouage fragrance aesthetic. With warmth and openness, the perfumes of the Collection have captured the true spirit of femininity in the modern woman. Now, having formed a distinct stylistic profile, Amouage’s Secret Garden has been re-imagined, ready to embark on further journeys of creative exploration. To mark the occasion, a brand new composition, Love Delight, joins the Collection – a delicious creation that adds an alluring dimension to the quartet’s expression of womanhood. 

The Temptation of Love Delight

From the moment they emerged, the aim of the Secret Garden scents has been clear — each Eau de Parfum has explored a facet of contemporary femininity by pairing a tantalizingly flavoursome accord with a distinctive floral note. “In the case of Love Delight, I absolutely knew I wanted to stay faithful to the idea at the core of all the Secret Garden perfumes,” explains Chief Creative Officer, Renaud Salmon, “but I wanted to push the olfactory vocabulary into areas we had not really explored before.”

To meet this challenge, Salmon turned to renowned Vice President Senior Perfumer Pascal Gaurin. Taking his cue from the richness of Arabian sweets — which layer generous quantities of crumbly pastry alongside nuts, orange blossom and rose water — Gaurin created an almost impossibly appetising accord that he and Salmon came to call ‘Honey Glazed Pastry’. Shimmering with golden temptation, and calling to mind the gleam and texture of mouth-watering treats, it is exuberant and refined without ever resorting to simplistic sugariness. For the floral facet of Love Delight’s personality, Gaurin turned to Heliotrope. With its aroma of warm almond, as well as its suggestion of ripe cherries, it was a perfect fit with the addictiveness of the Honey Glazed Pastry accord. The result is the most enigmatically lustrous member of the Secret Garden Collection.

When the scent first reveals its optimistic personality, Ginger and Cinnamon project an effervescent insouciance – a glittering sparkle of joy. Adding to the light-filled effect is tender Rose Water, a material being used for the first time in an Amouage creation. As the perfume offers up further charms, the florals in its heart – Heliotrope, Jasmine and Rose – cast a knowing smile across the brightness of the opening. Finally, three precious absolutes, Vanilla Bean, Cocoa and Rum, unite themselves to Cypriol and the Honey Glazed Pastry accord to add an air of languorous ease, balancing the dazzling, solar elements. 

Free-spirited and spontaneous, but also generous and open-hearted, Love Delight is an irrepressible tribute to the woman who seeks and finds all the pleasures life has to offer. It is, as its name suggests, a creation that is both full of love and full of delight. 

A Garden Redesigned

All four Secret Garden Eaux de Parfum are now presented in re-imagined flacons, featuring a colour palette that emphasises a sense of the enigmatic without losing any of the Collection’s vitality. The bottles’ soft-touch ceramic coating adds an enchantingly tactile dimension to the ritual of applying the scent. Their texture calls to mind a fine, leafy down, making it feel familiar, inviting and confidently contemporary.

Love Delight joins the three existing Secret Garden Eaux de Parfum to add a new chapter to Amouage’s story of the modern woman. It takes its place alongside the powdery elegance of Lilac Love, which mixes Cocoa Bean with Lilac to explore the idea of classical femininity in today’s world, as well as the nectar-like seductiveness of Blossom Love, in which Amaretto and Cherry Blossom burst forth with unashamed romanticism, and the creamy headiness of Love Tuberose, where Chantilly and Tuberose conjure a distinctly female aura of heightened sensuality. While their presentation has been updated, the fragrances of these three existing creations remain unchanged.

Dramatic Visuals for a Return to a Garden of Mysteries

Shot by Charles Negre, under the artistic direction of Jade Lombard, the new visuals for the Collection find inspiration in the work of Joan Miró. A mix of organic and structural shapes against an all-black background, the compositions are an arresting array of textures and colours – a deceptive landscape where proportions are impossible to gauge, compelling the viewer to be drawn into the images. Encapsulating the Collection’s combination of the carefree with the mysterious, the visuals reflect the mysteries at the heart of the Secret Garden, as well as the varied, contrasting forms of femininity itself.

FRAGRANCE STORIES:

GOLDEN NECTAR

This floral gourmand fragrance blends the warmth of golden orchid and sueded amber with notes of rich vanilla and velvety musk to create a seductive symphony for the senses.

Laura Slatkin was inspired to create this alluring fragrance after reading a story about Cleopatra. Ever the temptress, she is said to have dipped her sails in perfume to gently scent the wind, enticing her suitors before she even stepped foot upon shore. With its irresistible aroma, Golden Nectar captures the essence of this ultimate seduction.

  • Fragrance Family: Floral-Gourmand
  • Key Notes: Golden Orchid, Amber, Musk

INDIGO

This exotic eau de parfum is an exploration of the Mediterranean with notes of Italian lemon, orange bergamot, Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, and wild figs from the South of France.

With Indigo, Laura Slatkin set out to create a fragrance that was different from everything else on the market. She was inspired by a visit to a tea shop on Bond Street in London where she experienced the most amazing Moroccan tea aroma. It was so exceptional that years later, it became the inspiration for this extraordinary fragrance.

  • Fragrance Family: Woody-Fruity
  • Key Notes: Moroccan Tea, Bergamot, Wild Fig

BLACK TULIP

This seductive chypre fragrance blends the sensuality of Japanese violet and Indonesian jasmine with the richness of patchouli and the freshness of pink peppercorn. Black amber plum and black cherry bring a dark fruity accord to create a sultry scent. 

The inspiration for Black Tulip began during a cruise along the Black Sea when NEST New York founder Laura Slatkin tasted delicious black cherries and dark plums that she discovered along the way in a Turkish market.

  • Fragrance Family: Oriental-Floral (Chypre)
  • Key Notes: Black Amber Plum, Japanese Violet, Pink Peppercorn

SUNKISSED HIBISCUS

Inspired by the allure of the Voodoo Queen hibiscus, this radiant solar floral eau de parfum taps into the warmth of golden amber to capture the luminosity of the sun. Layers of classic white florals and frangipani, a tropical floral with a creamy coconut accord, complete this fragrance that absolutely wraps you in bliss.

Laura Slatkin was inspired by the mesmerizing Voodoo Queen hibiscus that blooms in the garden of her Palm Beach home. Drawn to its striking colors reminiscent of a picturesque Palm Beach sunset, she discovered that the flower has an incredible relationship to the sun: its petals close when it sets and blossom as it rises.

  • Fragrance Family: Floral-Soliflore
  • Key Notes: Golden Amber, Frangipani, Creamy Coconut Accord

WILD POPPY

This spirited fruity floral eau de parfum captures the evolution of a poppy flower from bud to blossom by blending Rose de Grasse and hints of Himalayan jasmine with the luscious aromas of pear, raspberry, and apricot.

Laura Slatkin has always found inspiration in the flower market. One day she came across these very large buds that were so unattractive she had to ask what they were. She learned they were poppy buds. Week after week, she began to notice the evolution of this ugly bud to an extraordinary flower. This evolution became her inspiration to create Wild Poppy.

  • Fragrance Family: Fruity-Floral
  • Key Notes: Rose de Grasse, Himalayan Jasmine, Pear

WISTERIA BLUE

This ethereal floral eau de parfum is created by combining watery notes with the essence of French wisteria and the richness of Bulgarian rose and imperial jasmine.

During a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, founder Laura Slatkin was especially enamored with the delicate beauty of the wisteria trees. Seeing their cascading flowers adorn the city’s historic homes inspired her to create this gorgeous, uplifting fragrance.

  • Fragrance Family: Floral-Watery
  • Key Notes: French Wisteria, Bulgarian Rose, Imperial Jasmine

FRAGRANCE STORIES:

MADAGASCAR VANILLA PERFUME OIL

Capture the allure of Madagascar’s rich landscape with the warm essence of vanilla bean and the subtle floralcy of vanilla orchid combined with a hint of coconut. This gourmand perfume oil features Madagascar Vanilla, one of the most expensive crops in the world in part because of the elaborate care it needs all season long. The vanilla orchid must be hand pollinated by skilled harvesters, who then spend a year curing and drying each pod to perfection, giving dozens of local villages a source of livelihood.

 TURKISH ROSE PERFUME OIL

Wander through Turkey’s legendary rose fields with notes of dewy rose, black plum, and hints of saffron warmed by blonde woods. At the heart of this enveloping floral perfume oil is Rosa Damascena sourced from various family-owned farms in Turkey that have been perfecting the flower for generations. Harvested during May and June only, the rosebuds are handpicked at dawn when the flower is most fragrant.

 SEVILLE ORANGE PERFUME OIL

Seville’s vibrant spirit comes to life through notes of effervescent orange zest, tart pink grapefruit, and juicy mandarin with floral neroli and cedarwood. This citrus floral perfume oil bursts with the essence of the finest oranges harvested by fourth generation Spanish farmers so passionate about their craft that they are the only ones in the world to handpick each orange, skillfully reading its color, size, and shape for ripeness.

 INDIAN JASMINE PERFUME OIL

Immerse yourself in the lush jasmine fields of India with an intense jasmine absolute surrounded by bright red berries, sparkling bergamot, and spicy pink pepper. This rich floral perfume oil is blooming with precious jasmine, a sacred flower cultivated in India for centuries as a symbol of love, devotion, and purity. Its petals are picked by hand as the sun rises, with great respect—a testament to the deep connection the people of India have with the symbolic flower.

BALINESE COCONUT PERFUME OIL

Bask on the beach of Bali with notes of creamy coconut, tropical tiare blossom, and salted musk. This fresh solar perfume oil features the essence of fresh coconuts harvested from the islands of Southeast Asia. Using a special extraction method, the natural fragrance of the coconut is captured, from its rich milk and sundrenched husk to the salty air that settled on its surface.
