THOUGHTS BEHIND THE PRODUCT
We find the project «Lingua Planta» by Merle Bergers fascinating idea – which is why we got in contact with her soon after we have seen her work at Object Rotterdam. To research how plants communicate and translate this findings into a perfume with the same intentions, to us, is a very loving result. The smell of the combination of these pure natural extracts do literally resemble nature. Depending on the fragrance, your senses dive into a flower garden on an early spring day, or into a cool forest floor in autumn. We are grateful for this work to be here.
