PULO Project is a series of installations and experiences dedicated to the art and culture of the Philippines through contemporary fashion, design, and multisensory events.

Inspired by the diverse landscapes and flora of the 7,600+ islands that form the Philippine archipelago, aromatic curators Barratt Riley & Co have conceived a series of limited-edition scents composed of botanical extracts and essential oils. Within the exhibition, patrons are invited to learn about the selected botanicals along with their aromatic properties and geo-cultural significance.

MANILA

palmarosa, labdanum, cedarwood

The country’s capital and economic center for over 400 years, Manila is located on the island of Luzon and spreads along the eastern shore of Manila Bay at the mouth of the Pasig River. The city was originally named after the nilad plant, a flowering shrub that once grew plentifully along the river. The bustling industrial and cultural hub, replete with pedestrians and street food vendors, is ornamented with palms, banyans, acacias, bamboo, and other tropical trees throughout the city.

The signature PULO scent is complimented with zesty palmarosa as well as woody, resinous notes of cedar and labdanum to produce an alluring, incense-like accord.

Scented with 100% pure essential oils.

KALAMANSI

citrus, basil, elemi

This piquant citrus, balsamic composition is an homage to the popular ingredient in traditional Filipino cuisine, which also plays an important role in the country’s economy.

Citrofortunella microcarpa, known commonly as Philippine lime, calamondin or calamansi (spelled kalamansi in native Tagalog orthography), is a hybrid of kumquat and mandarin orange. Available year-round in the Philippines, the world’s only major producer of this fragrant citrus, its sour peel and sweet-tasting fruit have a wide range of uses in cooking and also boast numerous health benefits.

Scented with 100% pure essential oils.

SAMPAGUITA

jasminum sambac, honeysuckle, white musk

Adopted as the national flower of the Philippines in 1934, the Jasminum sambac was brought to the Philippines in the 17th century from the Himalayas. It was first described by Linnæus in 1753 as Nyctanthes sambac in the first edition of Systema Naturæ and reclassified to the genus Jasminum by William Aiton in 1789.

Sampaguita is a Spanish term that originated from the Filipino words “sumpa kita,” meaning “I promise you,” and serves as a symbol of divine hope, purity, simplicity, fidelity, humility, strength, devotion, and dedication.

With flowers that open at night and wilt during the day, the plant has many uses. In addition to being cultivated for its essential oil that is used in perfumery and medicine, its flowers are often strung into leis, corsages, and garlands that bestow honor and veneration.

Scented with botanical essential oils and perfume grade fragrance.
