Inspired by the timeless elegance and romance of Saigon, Cochine founder, Kate Crofton-Atkins has created a range of scents, based on a love of the unusual botany of Vietnam and special moments experienced there, such as the scent of Champa Jasmine on an early morning bicycle ride to the warm breeze of dusky evenings under the ancient fig trees in grand gardens. Kate talks us through the highlights of the last twelve months.
TUBEROSE & WILD FIG - A NEW FRAGRANCE
Recently launched, inspired by the magical moment when dusk falls, the air still warm from the sun, this new fragrance contains pure Tuberose Absolute oil from Southern France combined with the richness of Wild Fig, blended with citrus notes of Vetiver, Sicilian Lemon and Bergamot. These ingredients come together to create a scent that is dark and romantic, yet wonderfully crisp.

THE COCHINE STORY
Kate Crofton-Atkins founded Vietnam's first luxury fragrance brand. After leaving London and her job at L'Oréal and moving to Saigon nine years ago, Kate was instantly overcome by the city's special style, elegance and set about designing a range of fragrances that could capture Saigon's charm. Partnering with an international fragrance house based in New York, and producers in France, Kate spent many years working with essential oils harvested from Vietnamese plants and tree to produce sophisticated scents and luxurious skincare.
