Organic eau de parfum twice aged and bottled in Somerset, England. 32ml.
There is a tree much-prized in China. It grows in almost every garden, and in the eighth month of the year it blooms - in time for the Harvest Festival and its bright full moon. This tree has slender branching limbs and pointed leaves like its cousin, the olive. Among them nestle tiny yellow flowers, the size of a grain of rice. In Chinese mythology it is self-healing, a magical tree that grows on the moon. If you chop it down, it grows again.
For many Chinese, osmanthus is the most evocative scent in the world - much more than the sum of its parts. This heady fragrance calls to mind the sweet, animalic note of apricots, the syrupy freshness of peach, a delicate hint of tea - opening up into the smooth creamy comfort of milk, with even a dash of violet. But osmanthus also summons memories of a time of year, its stories and gatherings.
Though in China osmanthus blossom comes in autumn, for us its stone fruit, tea-like scent is evocative of late summer in Europe. We used it for the first time in Winter 23 as a gentle accent. But for Summer 23 we wanted to celebrate its full-bodied beauty, that slightly musky scent that comes with the early harvest.
We have perfected the base for our Summer fragrances over several years - a squeeze of citrus, a blush of florals and a hot, dry sprinkle of spices and amber.
For this year, Summer 23, we played with this formula to create a fragrance that evokes the ache of the end of the season - the final days of summer, their twilit hours, their peach-coloured skies.
Just to say how much I am enjoying my first Ffern experience, Summer 23. Everything from the packaging, to the teabags but especially the scent. Beautiful.
Thank you so much. I received my Summer 23 perfume today. I have many perfumes. I was looking for something special and different, Summer 23 is amazing. I am so impressed and will definitely recommend it.
First and foremost, let me commend your team for crafting such a unique and exceptional fragrance.
The attention to detail in the packaging, from the delicate wrapping to the personalised note, spoke volumes about the dedication and passion behind your brand. It was evident that each element had been carefully curated to provide an unforgettable experience.
I’ve tried a lot of perfumes over the years, but Ffern has by far been my favourite one. Their Summer ‘23 scent was amazing. 12/10! I’ve had so many people compliment me and ask where I got it. Highly recommend it!
A lovely & unique concept - I love everything about Ffern. The Summer 2023 perfume is delightful and the little touches like a summer tea blend and a perfume disc makes receiving the seasonal box a joy. The podcasts are best enjoyed in a peaceful setting with a cup of the summer tea - in a China cup of course.
Thank goodness I found Ffern the whole experience from start to finish was the best from being put onto the ledger to the arrival of the package and what a package the little extras from the teas to the info on the fragrance to the terracotta stone - I can't wait for the next fragrance if its as gorgeous as Summer 23 it's going to be amazing just like my whole experience with Ffern.
Simply Stunning ~ Summer in a fragrance. From the minute my Ffern bottle arrived to spritzing, I was captivated by the attention detail and summer nostalgia fragrances. So impressed with Ffern, something very unique and special about this wonderful creative business!! Can’t wait to receive my winter one.
My new treat for myself. Times are tighter and I’ve cancelled all my beauty box subscriptions and even stopped buying mainstream known perfume brands. Ffern’s seasonal subscription of scents offers a unique magic that gives you something new and sensational each time. What makes the decision to continue each season is the companies sustainability, organic ingredients and the spiritual healing treats you get each season too.
I cannot wait for autumn 23, especially as its my birth season and one I resonate with most.
First scent and I'm hooked. My first scent with Ffern was Summer 23 and I adored it, a little spicier than I expected but it was still such a nice scent, the matching tea was an extraordinary surprise!
I’m beyond impressed with Ffern. It’s not just any other fragrance brand, the smell it’s so heavenly and unique which embodies the season, that I can’t wait to smell the next seasons to come. And on top of that, the customer service has been remarkable. Communication was elegant and impecable and the fastest shipment I have ever experienced. I’m very pleased to have found Ffern.
The perfect summer fragrance. Not heavy, but not too light that it disappears during the day. Subtle, clean notes of citrus are beautifully combined with other elements to make my favourite summer fragrance EVER. This scent is amazingly addictive!
