OUR OSMANTHUS INGREDIENT
For the NEW Osmanthus Collection, it was a collaborative effort between Producers, Perfumers and an Illustrator. We support our Osmanthus Producers and pride ourselves on our responsibly sourced Osmanthus Flower.
Our Osmanthus Producer
Our main supplier for the Osmanthus Flower is Mr Tang Guo Yong, from ShaoShui Town, TangKou Village in China. Mr Tang started business in 2005, after finding out that Miss Xiao, owner of the Company TOP which produces Osmanthus and wanted to build her network. Currently, Mr. Tang owns 10 ha land, knowing that 1.3 ha is growing Osmanthus with about 1000 mature trees. With the continuous support from Miss Xiao, Mr. Tang was able to upgrade his transport vehicle, warehouse and the house he is staying.
Currently Mr. Tang is the village committee member, focusing on alleviating poverty in the community. Many local people in community value education, as they would like their descendants to take over, improve and keep their current business sustainable. Mr. Tang's wife, Mrs Tang Zhong Hua fully supports her husband with Osmanthus growing.

"When I smell this creation, I have the sensation of a Ray of Moon touching Osmanthus to let us see through their velvety petals of its flowers. Their authentic charm, their natural elegance, their inner delicacy are revealed with the light, and the fragrance Osmantus captures this beauty as a whole. It is the scent of happiness and peacefulness at the same time" - Marypierre Julien.
“The fragrance Osmanthus is like a contemplation of a beautiful starry sky as a reminder of plenty flourishing Osmanthus stars. It refers to this serenity we can feel when we are in contact with the nature. Also, the brightness and joyful colour of the Osmanthus echoes the Magical Golden Moon in the sky.” - Michel Girard.
