A while a go at this event, I've met the 2 persons behind the brand Abel. Frances and dave, such a sweet people!
Unable (pun intented) to find an organic perfume that smelt and looked great, Amsterdam based New Zealander Frances Shoemack (with the help of her husband Dave) decided to create one.
Former winemaker frances collaborated with local and international experts to develop what is quite possibly the world's first 100% organic perfume.
From Sao Paulo-based master perfumer Isaac Sinclair to Amsterdam based wood artisan Jurre Slijkerman and many more.
United by a desire to do something different, better.
And so Abel was born, named with a nod to the Dutch adventurer Abel tasman- the first European to discover New Zealand in 1642.
Abel's two fragrances Vintage'13 and Tonic are both limited aditions and are now sold in selected stores across Europe and beyond.
About Tonic: "Lively, crisp and jaunty, Tonic by Abel is a mojito inpired fragrance with salty top notes of Lime, peppermint,bergamot, a backbone of classic vetiver
and a silky caramelised wood dry down."
