Imagine my surprise when I opened a recent package from Natalia Outeda of Frassai and discovered that one of her two latest fragrances Frassai Teisenddu by Roxanne Kirkpatrick of Givaudan (and A Fuego Lento by Rodrigo Flores-Roux) revolved around an aromatic historical skein linking Wales and Patagonia! Words fail. The further I delved into the story, the more astounded I became. The icing on the cake: this perfume is marvelous, and it bears in its wake a perfumer with whom I am unfamiliar. First and foremost, let’s look at the relationship which evolved between Natalia and young perfumer Roxanne Kirkpatrick. Back in her New York office, for Frassai Teisenddu Natalia and Roxanne Kirkpatrick of Givaudan used to explore fragrant materials together. Roxanne commenced her career as a lab technician for Olivier Gillotin (the perfumer who created Frassaï Tían Di) – and then went on to graduate from perfumery school in France. Natalia intuitively felt that her native Utah roots provided the perfumer with an appreciation “of ‘rural’ knowledge needed to translate the Welsh odyssey to Patagonia”. It only augmented Natalia’s pleasure that here was her first collaboration with Roxanne Kirkpatrick of Givaudan with who happened to be a woman Thanks to the largesse of Frassaï, we have a draw for one registered reader anywhere in the world for a 50 ml bottle of Frassai Teisenddu by Roxanne Kirkpatrick of Givaudan.
