The avant-garde bouquets of these sophisticated scents are based on the ancient recipes and traditions of Grasse, but have also been inspired by an amazing natural wonder.
In 1947, an awe-inspiring shower of meteorites fell to earth in Russia. It was a still, frosty, almost cloudless morning of February 12, 1947 in Eastern Siberia, when at 10:38 local time a glow appeared in the sky, clearly visible in a full sunlight.
It initially looked as a bright star, but soon turned into a dazzling fireball, which became slightly elongated. The meteorite rapidly crossed the sky from north to south, leaving behind it a boiling dusty trail of the meteorite particles. Then it passed out of sight behind the hills in sikhote-alin mountains…
Each of the shooting stars scents is named after a location that experienced a unique meteoric event. Shooting stars is an inspiring collection that makes you believe that stars can be closer than we think.
Each fragrance in the Shooting Stars collection has been chosen to reflect the special nature of this event and tiny meteorite pieces from this event have been used to adorn the neck collar of the crystal bottle; which is crowned with a hand crafted bronze stopper. Fittingly, the art deco style brass plaque depicts a falling star.
Presented in an opulent lacquered wooden box, each fragrance is accompanied by a certificate that guarantees the origin and preciousness of the meteorite pieces.
