There are a lot of fragrance brands to choose from. However, not all have the mission of Sana Jardin.
The luxury perfume brand was founded by Amy, former social worker and fragrance enthusiast. She built Sana Jardin and positioned it as a vehicle for social change with the Beyond Sustainability Movement and started her own flower revolution.
The movement supports their female flower harvesters in Morocco, who handpick floral ingredients for Sana Jardin’s perfumes. They partnered with Nest, a non-profit, and piloted three micro-enterprises with female farmers. The farmers received mentorship and training on product pricing, brand development, and market analysis. The women are also the sole shareholders of the cooperative and they retain 100% of the proceeds from the products they sell, under their own brand called Annamaa. The fragrances from Sana Jardin are also #crueltyfree and are made without phthalates, artificial colorants, parabens, and formaldehydes.
The perfume they graciously sent me is the Revolution de Fleur inspired by a woman who loves to wander surrounded by tropical florals. The fragrance has notes of rose, frangipani, neroli, ylang-ylang, jasmine, vanilla bean extract, and sandalwood.
I’m trying to go out of my floral spectrum and decided to go a stronger route in terms of scent. At first spray, I easily detected the floral note with hints of sweetness but after a few seconds, the subtle powdery musk surfaces. It’s sweeter and stronger than most perfumes I go for but the name itself is the perfect description as to what I wanted – a floral revolution. I like wearing this if I have a big meeting or an important thing to do as the scent is empowering and lends a resilient mood. Also, it’s one of the longest lasting perfumes I have in my stash. It lasts for about six hours before I have to spritz again.
I really enjoyed this, both the scent and the brand’s mission of empowering women.
