The Creative Process: Liz Earle Botanical Essence No. 1 is the culmination of a 3-year journey, always taking the time to respect the art of perfumery. Their botanical ingredients have been carefully distilled and then blended by the expert nose and distinguished leading French perfumer, Jean Charles Niel. They gave him the time to indulge in this age old art, hand-crafting this complex scent with true passion:
“This creative process gave me the time and the opportunity to craft a fragrance working with the highest quality ingredients. Using the Instant Boost Skin Tonic as a starting point, I looked into the glamour of the brand and Liz’s image to create a vibrant sparkling floral with a beautiful rose at its heart translating into warmth and sensuality for the dry down.” Jean Charles Niel, Perfumer
