The inspiration for this aromatic dry woods fragrance is the story of a beautiful love triangle. Normally, this expression has negative connotations of lies and infidelity. But in this case, between the Russian Klavdia Novikova, the Japanese Yasaburo Hachiya and his wife Hisako, it only means love and sacrifice. 

During the Second World War, Yasaburo and Hisako flee to Korea where they had two children. Once the war finished in Europe, Russia and Japan went to war, invading Korea among others. Like many other Japanese, Yasaburo was wrongly condemned to 10 years in the Soviet gulag due to espionage. In that labour camp he met Klavdia, also condemned. When they both finished their sentences, they find themselves alone. Yasaburo wasn’t able to go back to Japan because of a paper’s mistake, and Klavdia’s husband had left. So, after a while,  friendship become love, and they got married at Progresso town where they lived happily together for 37 years. In the 90’s with the collapse of the URSS,  the openness to the foreign trade would change again their lives. Two Japanese merchants learnt the story of Yasaburo and managed it to put him in contact with his brother. He told him that his wife Hisako was still alive and loyally waiting for him after 51 years, with their daughter, in Japan. Yasaburo was extremely confused, so Klavdia took a decision for him. The toughest one she ever took. She spent their savings in having a passport and a flight ticket, and she divorced him. “I felt I had torn away half of my heart when I let him go”. After Yasaburo’s return, they used to talk on the phone every Saturday, even with Hisako, who was grateful to the Russian woman. They thought they would never see each other again, but thanks to a Japanese film based on their story, the Japanese society collected the money to bring Klavdia…and the reencounter occurred! She died on 2014, almost unnoticed in Russia, but not in Japan where she became a symbol of love and sacrifice. 


Grâce de Klavdia has a fresh agrestic top of lavender, bergamot and neroli, inspired on the rural Progress town (Amur) where Klavdia and Yasaburo shared their unconditional love. The contrast is given by the balmy and woody heart of Klavdia and her relationship with the Japanese culture; a warm hug of grey amber, sandal, cedar and patchouli. The base notes are a tribute to that man who sincerely loved two women because of the destiny’s desire. The precious masculine character is emphasised by spicy and tobacco: mace, bay, pink pepper and saffron.
