Gri Gri Parfum - Tara Mantra
Gri Gri Tara Mantra unusually opens with a peppering of spicy top notes, more often found in the heart of a fragrance. Prized saffron and piquant cardamom twist with the earthy, slightly sweet notes of hing. At the middle of this sublime scent, a meditation on ancient philosophy and ritual, elegant patchouli is entwined with the thyme-like notes of ajowan. Equally unusually heady jasmine and lotus are found in the base of this scent where subtle oud notes of agarwood add a flourished finish to this highly accomplished fragrance.

Skin adornment occurs across cultures and across millennia, permanent dermal decorations confirming belonging and longing, love and loss; audacious displays of unity, strength and courage.
GRI GRI, the new collection by French nose Anaïs Biguine, takes these marks, these cultural identifiers, as the inspiration for a stunning new collection of three fragrances. Not only are the intricacies of the designs referenced but also the indigenous botanicals that themselves often influence the art.
The resulting scents are fresh and new, unbelievably wearable and a joyous celebration of human creativity.
Without exception GRI GRI are the type of fragrances that will have you finding yourself holding your wrist up against your nose; the truest testament of a good scent.
