NadiaZ is involved in research on the specific phytotherapeutic properties of indigenous plants, however perfumes enter in the cosmetic category and not in the medicinal one, which is why legislation do not make it possible to describe those on this website or the brand documentations.

Seaweed: Nadia personally extracts some of the properties from a variety of green and red seaweed, such as fucus, dulse, kelp, sourced from oceans and coasts. Seaweeds are naturally rich in minerals and trace elements and are a source of Iodine and Bromine. The preservation and sustainable exploitation of oceanic kelp forests is a priority as they are the most productive and dynamic ecosystems on Earth yet are under critical pressure from human activity, especially from overfishing and climate change.
Mushrooms: Nadia and her father personally collect edible wild Swiss mushrooms, some highly prized for their gustative properties and others which are largely ignored. She also procures them from continental Europe, among other places, to prepare exclusive extracts through her bespoke production techniques. Mushroom availability varies immensely between the seasons by and year, thus the proportion used in perfumes can vary.
Yuzu (Citrus junos): This special species of Japanese lemon, used traditionally for bathing since the 18th century, has a subtle sweet citrus aroma.
Narcissus (Narcissus poeticus): Known since times of the Ancient Greeks and revered in literature, Narcissus Absolute, a rare ingredient, is mainly produced in Europe and is highly prized for its enigmatic, crisp, green, oral scent.
Mate (Ilex paraguariensis): Mate leaves were first used by indigenous communities in Brazil, before European colonization. Although traditionally a drink for rituals in Latin America, as a scent it is complex and sophisticated, reminiscent of green tea.
Kewra (Pandanus odoratissimus): The Pandanus tree and flowers are of great cultural and economic importance in India and the Pacific Islands and highly valued for their health benefits. The penetrative and distinctive scent of the Kewra extract is very rare in Western perfumery.
Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera): Used in Ayurveda practice, the Lotus is considered sacred by many cultures. The Lotus was used as far back as in Ancient Egypt and it is also a component in Hindu sacred perfumes. A symbol of enlightenment, this delicate flower, unspoiled by the muddy waters, is cultivated widely in India and Uganda.
Ucuuba (Virola surinamensis): The Ucuuba is a tree native to the floodplains throughout the Amazonian region. Ucuuba butter is extracted from seeds. Using tree seeds is a muc
