The goddess of weddings, family and blessings, Hera possessed a majestic power. Here, she is celebrated in the opulence of orris and jasmine. Engulfed in flowers, you are invited by a burst of orange blossom, radiating a golden halo of warm white flowers. Delicate touches reveal a buttery, rich embrace. Rose de mai brings a whisper of drama and gentle musk offers a sensual caress for Gods and Goddesses alike. A bright and beautiful perfume, steeped in energetic luxury and effortless glamour.

"By Jasmine – This perfume was created for me by my Mother, Liz, to wear on my wedding day. I didn’t give much direction for the smell, but she captured past, present and future in Hera. When I was in my teens, I would steal her Shalimar before nights out. Back then, it was definitely a perfume that wore me, but I loved it anyway. Although I don’t wear it anymore, is it has become so beautifully nostalgic.

Hera captures that classic, vintage feel in a completely new way. On the day of my wedding, gold was a big feature; every detail had to be gold! Hera is a ‘gold’ perfume for me. Wearing it is like wearing a halo of warm light. I was married in the Autumn and I see Hera as a blaze of glowing autumn colours, but with the lingering flush of summer flowers still being lifted on the wind. And to the future. Hera is bright and optimistic. It feels understated but has an undeniable courage and confidence. Like the goddess herself, there is a rich but power to Hera. It does not have to shout for you to appreciate its importance but there is a whisper to it that promises a resilient and sure heart.

Hera is the perfume you need when you are ready to step into your power. Although I am biased, it is an instant and timeless classic. I hope it wraps you in the romance of a vintage film and sets you centre stage like a starlet – just like it did for me on my wedding day."
