Our ‘Ask The Expert’ Series Continues with Gallivant Founder, Nick
For the next in our ‘Ask the Expert’ series we turned to ‘Best Niche Fragrance’ winner of the year 2020, Nick Steward Founder and Creator of Gallivant perfumes.

Our Berlin perfume is inspired by the nature and lakes on the edge of the German capital. Fresh zesty notes are married with elegant green and woody notes – and the famously smoky vetiver (a grass grown on Haiti.) Perfect for the transition from summer into autumn …
