Portlandia Ambient Spray is a new room spray by Spyros Drosopoulos of Baruti in partnership with The Red List Project, with the goal of sharing rare scents of plants on the verge of extinction. 100% of our sales proceeds go to the Red List Project, which you can read more about at www.theredlistproject.org. We are big fans of the organization and its founder, Peggy Fiedler, who we think of as the Jane Goodall of plants.
The Portlandia platantha tree is an IUCN Critically Endangered species in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) with deliciously fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers. These striking trees are currently known from only a single documented locality in Jamaica and the wild population is in steady decline. After studying Portlandia's tropical flowers in a botanical garden, Spyros reconstructed their scent in his laboratory in the Netherlands.
Portlandia flowers have a delicious scent reminiscent of gardenia but with more pronounced gourmand notes of coconut and vanilla.
This unique, hand-blended fragrance was designed to bring compelling scent safely and sustainably into your home.
500ml/16.9oz black glass bottle with trigger spray.
