Anaïs Biguine is the creator and nose behind the rather lovely Jardin d’Écrivains perfume house. The three Gri Gri fragrances are her latest creations. I have been wearing them for the last couple of weeks and feel them well worthy of some attention. The stand stood out beautifully at the Esxence. The ladies were professional, knowledgeable and extremely friendly.
Gri Gri Fragrances: Esxence 2016 Discovery
Eau de Parfum for Tattooed Skin by Anaïs Biguine 2016
There are three perfumes in the collection. They each take inspiration from the long history of and geographically diverse art of tattooing. Ink as an art form, across cultures and through the ages.
I am not familiar enough with each perfume yet to go into any depth but the following will give you an idea of what Anaïs Biguine has created.
MOKO MAORI EdP
Tussock grass. New Zealand Flax.
Fern. Kowhai. Manuka.
TARA MANTRA EdP
Saffron. Cardamom. Hing.
Lotus. Jasmine. Agarwood.
Genmaicha. Yuzu. Aralia.
Daphné. Green tea.
Each perfume succeeds at representing the different artistic style, and master skills of tattooing. From needles to bamboo. Spiritual, theatrical and peaceful.

I have a samples of each fragrance, the ladies at Gri Gri were very kind. I know how annoying it is to feel attracted to a perfume that you can not get hold.
I will pop a sample of one of the collection in the post to three different APJ peeps.
