The specialist artisanal techniques utilised to layer ingredients and compose fragrances have a long and distinguished history at GRAHAM & POTT; parfums are sublimed using a variety of delicate layering and subtle enhancements, enriching the beauty and brilliance of our masterpieces, and ensuring the precision, longevity, and sillage of a GRAHAM & POTT fragrance.
Amber – the colour of life, an intense celestial orange, that is transformed depending on the angle of the light. The smoked finish is obtained using a masterful frosting technique, reinforcing the strength of the flacon, while delivering unparalleled luminosity.
Flacon-making heritage – a centuries-old artisanal technique is used to create the frosted amber upon which the brass plates are applied by hand. The process exemplifies how fine flacon-making skills work harmoniously with state-of-the-art instruments at GRAHAM & POTT.
THE BENCHMARK OF EXCELLENCE
Selecting from only the finest calfskin for a tight grain and magnificent sheen, the signature GRAHAM & POTT Leather Collier is tanned for nine months in a blend of oak, spruce and mimosa barks for incomparable lustre, then hand-stitched to perfection.
The grace and finesse of the polished plate exemplifies the standard of excellence of the hand-finishing techniques employed by the artisans at GRAHAM & POTT, where great dexterity is required to preserve its flawless beauty.
Excellence has a scent all of its own. Situated in the heart of a fragrance, artful execution plays a key role in the delicate harmony of a parfum creation. Along with its heart notes, the mastery in the layering of the top notes is a key element that determines the vigour and sillage of a GRAHAM & POTT fragrance.
In its unyielding drive to attain olfactory excellence, GRAHAM & POTT has been at the very forefront of innovation within the fragrance-making craft. The House distinguishes itself through its unique approach in the execution of its parfums creations; a striking yet harmonious blend of passion, creativity, and flair.
THE HOUSE CYPHER
A Glorious Emblem for a Superlative Parfum
For over a century, a graphic cypher associated with the name GRAHAM & POTT has been inspiring enthusiasts and connoisseurs of high-end fragrance-making artistry to dream. It is the GRAHAM & POTT House Cypher that the distinguished House features within its Great Seal, the use of which first began in January of 1894, as the Official House Cypher and identifying element for GRAHAM & POTT.
A Symbol of Perpetual Splendour
A fine motive that may have convinced the House of GRAHAM & POTT to adopt its Cypher in 1894 was its graphically ornamental quality and its centuries-old tradition. It is an aesthetically graceful feature whose splendour remains entirely unaffected by the ever changing vagaries of fashion and trend. Hence, it is the prototypical symbol to express the core tenets and values of GRAHAM & POTT and the long-term scope of its House philosophy.
In this day and age, the House Cypher also has another meaning at GRAHAM & POTT; it symbolises a collection of superlative parfums that stand out with understated grace and a timeless elegance.
