South-Africa based perfume house Frazer Parfum will inaugurate a pop up perfumery at Hawksmoor Antiques from 15 December 2009 to 15 February 2010 in Cape Town.
The house is an all-natural perfumery seeking inspiration in travels made to the sources of raw materials and recounted in Chapters. They also source their own ingredients locally aiming to incorporate the South-African botanical heritage...
The house will launch its new Parfum Solide range "housed in in a hand carved sustainable African Blackwood pincushion compact illustrated by Heather Moore of Cape Town. Both the perfume and the wood appreciate with age."
Two sorts of Parfums Solides are available. One is called Haute Parfum Solide and is destined to the European market at 76€. The other kind is called Commercial Parfum Solide meant to be sold in the US market and priced at $40.
Founder of the brand Tammy Frazer comes from a family of chemists and beauty industry veterans. Her grand-father Graham Wulff is the inventor of Oil of Olay. Her father worked for Givaudan.
An upcoming composition is Swiss Stone inspired by the "physical reaction" that is Swiss moutain water melted from the snow caps and running over rocks and pebbles.
