Reglisse Noire by 1000Flowers

Reglisse Noire by perfumer Jessica Buchanan at 1000Flowers arrived in the post today. It's an intriguing perfume, not least because of the credentials of the perfumer.

Jessica Buchanan grew up on the seashores and in the wilderness of western Canada. Following a childhood obsession with wild plants, she began the study of essential oils in 1991. After formal training and certification in the field of clinical aromatherapy, Jessica began to explore the art of natural perfumery.
After 4 years of work in her own lab, she moved to France to study at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery (Alumni). Here she found a depth of understanding of the perfumed art that was highly refining.
Following her education, she interned in two of the traditional perfume houses of the region (Robertet and Mane) which facilitated an enlightening inside view of the industry.
The city of Grasse and its history can be enchanting and Jessica found herself absorbed into its culture. She continues to spend most of her time there, exploring a creative fusion of her natural roots with the training she received in modern perfumery.

Reglisse Noir (meaning licorice) is made up of notes including white pepper, ozone, mint, shiso leaf (pictured), star anise, ginger, licorice, cocoa, patchouli, vanilla, vetiver and musk.

I'm looking forward to trying this perfume and will review it soon.
