Grandiflora Saskia was launched in 2021, and is intended to be the last in the line. Created by Christophe Laudamiel, it is a gorgeous white floral inspired by the Sydney, Australia Flower Shop. It has notes of ginger, pink pepper, violet leaves, myrtle, water hyacinth, gardenia, flowershop accord, petrichor, ylang, boronia, immortelle, oakmoss and mimosa.
From Colognoisseur - "The opening of Saskia is this. Using the rainstorm ingredient of petrichor and violet leaves it creates that accord. Simultaneously baie rose and hyacinth drag my nose towards the flowers awaiting. And they are magnificent. The primary nucleus of the floral accord is gardenia given extra heft through boronia leaves. It is always there but the other flowers in the shop have their moment, too. A lush ylang-ylang and a shy mimosa are given a summer hillside twist through immortelle. It as if your nose encounters something new at every turn. Just as if you were in the shop."
From Fragrantica - "Radiantly beautiful fragrance and I am not a lover of Big White Florals generally. I do get the subtle ginger note and a the 'mushroom' sense during the evolution but it is all blended so well to read to me as a beautiful gardenia. Not animalic to me at all. Good sillage for the first hour and gradually softens to skin scent after about 4 hours on me."
