a journey of the senses by FLACONNEUR
The combined efforts of two friends, Solomon and Yinka, and their love of perfumery, turned out a company known today as Signature Fragrances London. This friendly team produces only pure parfum-strength products, known for delivering great longevity and the best in value to their wearers. It is no coincidence that the phrase “a little goes a long way” certainly pertains here. This company isn’t afraid to say “your perfume has the right to be smelt by others” and is more than a declaration from Soloman and Yinka. It’s there motto.
Signature Fragrances is very cognizant of their impact on the planet. They choose to act responsibly by using recyclable packaging and sourcing products from environmentally-aware partners. They also take many other factors into consideration with regard to their business dealings in general. They use they following criteria: they like to ensure that products are being sourced from safe facilities where workers are treated fairly and paid adequately, all of their products ingredients are free from phthalates, phosphates, parabens and sulphates, and, finally, they assure that any of their products are free of animal testing. Signature Fragrances is a participant in the 3 “R” system, recycle, reuse and reduce by using sustainable packaging in their products. They also use recycled and recyclable materials such as glass and polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
Signature Fragrances is very conscious of their product and use little or no alcohol in their perfumes. This is a popular concept, since some consider alcohol bad for the skin. Quality is not restricted solely to the bottle’s contents. The bottle designs themselves are artistic and a beautiful means of presentation.
Each of Signature Fragrances bottles are made from some of the clearest glass around and beautifully cut, mimicking Baccarat and Lalique cut crystal bottles from perfume’s golden age. Their fanciful bottles include a stopper for dabbing perfume on the wrist or neck. This is considered the best and perhaps only logical way to deliver this precious commodity. The presentation continues with a simple, black, hand-pleated ribbon hanging from which an oval tag describes the bottle’s contents. Each bottle is wrapped in matte black paper, and placed into extravagant black boxes. Their ‘Signature’ emblem is placed carefully across the box, and is a direct reflection of their fragrances. No detail is spared when creating a beautiful presentation for their perfumes.
The following comprehensive list of Signature Fragrances’ offerings for men and women cover the scope of floral, fresh, sweet, Oriental wood and, of course, oud.
