Ovando To Expands Its Souvenirs de Paris Candle Collection With Chantilly & Marche aux Fleurs
New York, NY—Ovando a full—scale design and production company returns to the olfactory arts with Chantilly and Marche aux Fleurs, the highly anticipated extension of their home fragrance collection, Souvenirs de Paris.
Founder, Sandra de Ovando’s passion for flowers began not only with their aesthetic beauty, but also with their exquisite scents. Souvenirs de Paris is the second chapter in her fragrance dialog and captures the romance and joie de vivre of her young adult life in Paris where her grandmother exposed her to the world and culture of the City of Lights.
The fragrances in Souvenirs de Paris are just that, olfactive souvenirs encapsulating all of de Ovando’s most cherished memories from Paris. The collection takes you on a sensory journey, combining purity and luxury.
One of Sandra’s all-time favorite treats, Chantilly crème is light in texture and sweet in taste. Delicious, decadent, and desired amongst all Parisians, it’s the most heavenly fragrance of violet blended with fresh tonka beans, topped with notes of pink grapefruit and papyrus leaves, whipped to perfection every time. Indulge in a guilty pleasure.
MARCHE AUX FLEURS
This is the most beautiful and desirable place for Sandra de Ovando. It’s where she first discovered her obsession for flowers. With playful notes of osmanthus blended with buoyant gardenia, magnolia and musk, finished with hints of pink pepper and plum, the Marche aux Fleurs’ unique aromas and complex textures painted a romantic portrait, making Sandra’s trips to the market an olfactive journey with she treasured. Immerse yourself in fresh flowers and whimsical gardens.
In 2012, Ovando added home fragrance to their portfolio with the launch of Recuerdos de Mexico and Souvenirs de Paris, two-luxury candle collections inspired by Sandra de Ovando’s youth. Award-winning master perfumer, Jérôme Epinette of Robertet, and Sandra de Ovando exquisitely created each fragrance to take you on a journey through time past. Each 10oz candle is made in the USA and is hand-poured in small batches. The masterfully designed frosted glass is specifically created for peaceful illuminance. Individual candles from the Souvenirs de Paris collection retail for $60.00 and are available at Barneys New York, Space NK, Ovando boutiques and www.OvandoNY.com
