Introducing Mutant Flowers, Oliver Valverde's New Fragrance Collection Via Crowdfunding
It's been a while since we've heard news about new launches from the talented Spanish perfumer Oliver Valverde. But in fact, as we already announced back in July, there is a lot to tell, and this shall be updated and talked about here on Fragrantica very soon. First of all, his collection of fragrances, Oliver & Co. is now renamed Avant Garden Lab. And he is also coming up with a crowdfunding project for the upcoming collection, Mutant Flowers.
"For those who know my work as a perfumer you may have noticed how much I love the use of pure natural ingredients combined with extraordinary man-made aroma molecules. This collection is not an exception. Each of these 4 new fragrance formulas include heavy doses of flower absolutes such as tuberose absolute, jasmine sambac absolute, jasmine grandiflorum absolute, cassie flower absolute, and one of the most loved raw materials for any perfumer: orris butter.
"We artisan perfumers, artists, and small brands are now living in very difficult times due to the global pandemic. This is why I need financial support for the production and launching of this collection. By supporting this, you will help me to make these fragrances come alive," says Oliver Valverde.
If you want to support Oliver and see these fragrances come alive, please visit the Crowdfunding Page and discover the different options. You can also learn a little about the compositions and find out what the perks of being one of the supporters are.
Here are the four future floral perfumes from Avant-Garden Lab:
IR1S x TROP1C4L
TUB3ROSE x F1G
JASM1N3 x CAL4MUS
C4SS1E x AMB3RNYL
As of the moment this article is being written, the crowdfunding is reaching 13% of the €16,000 flexible goal, and there are 27 days left to enter the project. If you donate now, you will get your products by December 2020. For everyone else, the perfumes will be available at regular price from February 2021.
