About the Perfumer
La Fleur by Livvy was founded in the summer of 2013 by Olivia Larson aka Livvy in Colorado, USA who is a self taught Artisan perfume maker. Each perfume is hand crafted in small batches and are plant based natural perfumes.
Since the main ingredients are derived from flowers and plants, therefore, the name “La Fleur” or “The Flower”. "My love for flowers led me to create a fragrance line using what nature has to offer us. My fragrances are not intended to overwhelm the presence in the room. They are meant to accentuate but not take away from the wearer. They are soft, subtle and sensuous".
Where did the journey begin? What inspires you?
"Memories of my childhood in India: of Indian women in the market place with fragrant jasmine garlands in their hair. The scent of attar's, tuberoses, rose waters, and sandalwood incense sticks wafting through the air as they burn. The various flowers that bloomed at night, the smell of earth after it rained on a hot summer day. The smell of fresh mint leaves being crushed into juice at a vendor’s stall. The frangipani (plumeria) flowers which grew outside our home by my grandmother’s bedroom window. "
Our fragrances are about Journeys and Travel. The "Fleur" Collection is about a woman's journey in life, it's about her dreams and aspirations, her faith, innocence and seductiveness. It is the first series of perfumes that were created.
Our Logo represents the feminine goddess within each of us and mother earth's abundance in nature.
Whilst our primary focus is to offer our customers a complete 100% Botanial Line of Perfumes using the best raw ingredients.
We also realise that many fragrance lovers enjoy perfumes with more sillage and longevity. Whilst Mixed Media Perfumes are controversial for some; we are keeping our formulas to as high as possible within the 80-90% range of using the same botanical raw ingredients with a small percentage of synthetic and premium fragrance oils which are Phthalate & Paraben Free.
We do not use Animal Musks. We are Animal Cruelty Free.
