Last week I met with Rodrigo Flores-Roux, the nose behind
two distinct takes on jasmine composed by the Master of white flowers. Each one creates a singular mood; one is bright and solar, a morning blooming jasmine with magnolia, citrus, vetiver and patchouli. The other, a simmering night-blooming jasmine with suede and the coumarin hay scent of flouveodorante. Both contain FRASSAÏ’s signature ingredient: maté absolute, lifting and supporting the floralcy with grace.
We had a wonderful #smellsession and are already planning our next perfume, so keep an eye and your nose out!👃🏼
Crema de vainilla. Cuero. Narciso. Whisky añejado. Roble. Tabaco
Cerrá los ojos. Encendé Marlene en tu mente.
El espacio entre los pensamientos, esa marea que moja la costa de las ideas.
Es libre y danza sin ataduras.
Hace lo que quiere. Ama y “desama”. Marlene es pasión, la pasión del cuero, la contradicción del tabaco, el desenfado del whisky y la libertad inocente de la crema de vainilla. Alma de niña, cuerpo de gigante.
Llena de perfume sensual mi hogar. Entre la inocencia y la nocturna sabiduría de la vida.
To celebrate International Woman's Day, I thought I'd share some of the women who inspire me on a daily basis. We all shine brighter when we lift each other up. Who inspires you?
Christine is a lifestyle coach and the founder of ana-hob beauty along with her sister Kim. She has the most uplifting smile I have ever seen! She is always looking to support and enlighten other women. And with her new coaching practice she is doing this more than ever!
Christine wears Verano Porteño & Tian Di and lights up Ada in her sunny Tampa home.
From Utah to Paris with a long layover in New York, Roxanne has relentlessly pursued her dream of becoming a nose. From our days smelling raw materials together in New York to collaborating on a candle collection, we have seen each other's journeys evolve. We are now developing a very special fragrance together that will be launching later this year (you heard it first!)
Roxanne burns Marlene, Clifford and Ada, three of her candle creations for FRASSAÏ.
Although she is modeling Frassaï's Nüwa collection, Irina is actually a nose. We first met in the perfumery world over a decade ago. She is incredibly generous and profoundly talented. A true gem of a mother, professional and friend.
When not wearing one of her own perfume creations, Irina wears Tian Di. She also burns Ada candles in her adopted Hong Kong (and always has a snuffer around because her son loves putting candles out!). She can often be seen walking around with many our jewelry pieces.
Who inspires you?
When I met Lisa from The Style Theory, I knew we would collaborate together. We had the best time at the #TSTCPopUp - The Future is Female - last October 7th. We unveiled our new eau de parfum collection! Here are some photos from the event in case you missed it (or were there with us and want to relive the fun!).

Champagne bottles and flowers are overplayed. Why not go for something more personal when choosing a gift for your host or hostess. Scented candles and home accessories are our go-to choices. Find out why below...
It's less difficult than you think to choose a great candle for your host/hostess. You may already know what kind of scents the person likes, in which case you can pick up a fragrance with tons of personality, like Gustav (a fiery blend of spices and sensual notes) or Marlene (a masterful blend of leather, tobacco, vanilla cream and aged Scotch whisky).
If you are not sure, you can play it safe with soft floral notes, like in Bebel. This is our best-selling candle for self-gifting and is adored particularly by women. Although men love it too. What is not to love about Brazil? Bebel is inspired by exotic tropical ingredients and the sounds of bossa nova. Peonies, guava juice, watery pear and sandalwood will let you travel to paradise without leaving your house; or your host's! Since this is meant to be a gift... right?
A more classical approach to fragrance is Ada, where dewy green leaves softly caress the whitest gardenia. This is a sure way to prolong summer all year long. This floral candle will swoon any white flower lovers (gardenia, jasmine, white violets are the main fragrance notes).
If looking for something more masculine, like a smoky leather reminiscent of a jazz club, Clifford will do. Its notes of suede, incense and saffron will fill the room with delight even while it's not burning.
Candles are indeed a wonderful and thoughtful present that indicate you've actually made an effort. We love pairing any of our scents with home accessories that are beautiful and useful as well, like our copper candle wick trimmer and the chicest snuffer you'll ever see (put out your candle with style!).
A candleholder is the ultimate luxurious gift. When you are ready to take it up a notch, gift your host a hand-finished solid copper candleholder. The base of lenga wood will not only look pretty but will also protect the surface. After burning the candle, your host will appreciate filling the copper vessel with fresh flowers before replacing with a new candle scent.
Nüwa (nỳ wá; Chinese: 女媧), is a goddess in ancient Chinese mythology best known for creating mankind and repairing the pillar of heaven.
The new collection, inspired by the nurturing and transformative energy of the female goddess, is beautiful and mysterious. The shapes are delicate yet powerful, suggestive of the feminine figures bringing life into the world. Each form is highly auspicious, representing the renewing energy of the universe. Organic necklaces and earrings are paired with modern crown rings and graceful bracelets. Deeply intuitive and protective, the jewelry pieces will transport you to a world where myths are unveiled.
A relaxing weekend with Clifford, the ultimate woody incense scent accompanied by Bolero rings and our cult Fragrance Flacon necklace •
We are finding this color palette incredibly chic and inspiring as we get ready for the Spring season. The month of love invites us to stay home and spend quality time with loved ones. What color palette do you prefer for your space? Leave us a comment with hashtag #sensorialexperience
We were thrilled to be part of the Spring press preview in New York last week.
We had so much success with our initial Bolero collection that we have decided to grow it. The pieces are modern yet timeless, allowing for easy transition from season to season year after year.

Brave the change of seasons with ease. If you already own a few key pieces, but want stay up to date, follow the hottest Fall/Winter trends and flow into the new season a winner.
CHOKER TREND. Punk is not dead. Bring out your 90's self with the new version of the choker. Gorgeous metals with ribbons, velvet and suede. Thin and romantic or eye-catching, your choice!
LARGE CUFFS. Say goodbye to dainty bracelets. Instead, wear a statement cuff that will get you noticed. Take it a up a notch by wearing it over your sweater or gloves. Gold or silver as long as it's bold.
BROOCHES ARE BACK. Not just for grandma anymore. Now that they are worthy of millennials, dare to add a brooch over your buttoned up t-shirt or over a chunky sweater.
ASYMMETRIC AND SINGLE EARRINGS. Geometric or organic... Small or large... Follow your whim and be playful. If there is one trend you must try, this is it.
STATEMENT NECKLACES. Wear single or dare to layer. Long or short, the secret is to go bold. Mix edgy leather with refined chains or try a pendant that holds a secret vial of perfume...
