Wisteria Blue

I love the NEST fragrances, especially their candles. To quote:
NEST Fragrances, a leading designer and manufacturer of exceptionally crafted fine and home fragrances, today announced the debut of Wisteria Blue, an aquatic floral eau de parfum launching exclusively this week at Sephora. It is the eleventh eau de parfum created for the NEST Fine Fragrances Collection.

“I was inspired to create Wisteria Blue while walking through the Historic District in Charleston, S.C.,” said Laura Slatkin, Founder of NEST Fragrances. “I came across a home that was covered in wisteria blossoms in the most extraordinary shades of lavender, blue and white; it was right then and there that I knew I had to create a wisteria fragrance.”

Upon returning to New York, Slatkin knew immediately she wanted to collaborate with Givaudan senior perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux to develop the fragrance. “He is legendary in the fragrance industry, but I had not yet had the pleasure of working with him,” said Slatkin. “When I got to his lab, Rodrigo shared with me an essence of wisteria. He said this rare essence was extracted from wisteria blooms adorning Petit Trianon, Marie Antoinette’s home at Versailles. It was pure perfection.”
Slatkin continued, “To complete Wisteria Blue, we added imperial jasmine and Bulgarian rose – notes Rodrigo calls the ‘king and queen of any important floral fragrance’ – and fresh watery nuances. The end result is an exquisite fine fragrance that captures the ethereal beauty and artistry of wisteria.” As with all of her previous creations for the NEST Fine Fragrances Collection, Slatkin worked closely with widely respect Russian artist Alexander Solodukho, who painstakingly sketched and painted the original botanical artwork for Wisteria Blue’s packaging.
