Jamie Frater, Perfumer & Creative Director:
In New Zealand, Christmastime falls in summer, but the nation's colonial heritage is apparent in the edible wintry delights of the holiday. Wild cherries, warm spices and dried fruits are baked into plum-puddings while festive cakes are dredged in aromatic wines before being crowned with golden marzipan. I wanted to create a fragrance that captures all of the wonder and delight of this time of year particularly as experienced in my youth.
Cherry Pop melds these toothsome treats of the holy season with luxurious East Indian sandalwood—so precious it might have been a gift to the Christ child had there been a fourth wise man. Fragrant blossoms of the sweet acacia tree, the scent of wind-borne jasmine and creamy heliotrope join the gourmand notes of Bourbon vanilla and tonka bean to anchor the whole.
With many family members now gone and my exuberance for the feast day tempered by passing years, Cherry Pop serves as a reminder of the jubilation of childhood. Cherry Pop always elicits in me a smile. It is my joyful perfume.
