25TH ANNIVERSARY SABON
2022 marks an especially meaningful milestone for SABON, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. The celebrations will begin right at the start of the year, with the January launch of a festive Collector’s Edition of SABON’s signature fragrance since 1997, Patchouli Lavender Vanilla, designed in collaboration with young Israeli illustrator Gabriella Barouch.
“An unexpected blend” - The Iconic Patchouli Lavender Vanilla Fragrance
Patchouli Lavender Vanilla is the signature SABON fragrance that has accompanied and defined SABON for its entire 25-year history. Created in 1997, the fragrance was immediately recognized as a breakthrough in the perfumery market – an original, enchanting, and enveloping scent inspired by a magnificent voyage through nature’s wonders.
“For me, creating a perfume is all about telling a story, eliciting emotion through fragrance. I love Patchouli Lavender Vanilla because it takes you by surprise. It’s composed of three emblematic scents from the world of perfumery, and these three complementary ingredients reveal a beautiful fragrance as simple as it is complex and authentic. This fragrance is worn like a precious jewel, the ultimate feminine accessory.”
- Laurence Leon, Patchouli Lavender Vanilla fragrance creator (Grasse, France)
Patchouli Lavender Vanilla is unprecedented in many ways. It not only brings together three fine ingredients from three entirely different olfactive families, which was simply unheard of at the time, but also breaks free from the traditional constraints of a pyramid structure, composing the three scents in harmony, without distinguishing between top, heart, and base notes.
Patchouli conveys the essence of the fragrance – elegance, sophistication, and richness with herbal accents. Lavender brings freshness, natural light, purity, and a very feminine floral note. And vanilla evokes sensuality, oriental amber, and sweet musks, creating a sense of wellbeing.
It is therefore fitting that Patchouli Lavender Vanilla continues to evade easy definition. Some find it spicy, some find it sweet. It adapts to the wearer and the circumstances, yet retains its own singular identity. Most of all, it is a fragrance brimming with emotion and personality, embodying SABON’s holistic experience. Even after 25 years, Patchouli Lavender Vanilla is still spectacular and surprising, enticing, and inspirational.
