In 1982, Antonia began working with the chief perfumer of one of the country's finest essential oil houses. "It had to be a fresh, feminine bouquet...with a signature note of freesia." Antonia's artistry with flowers had at last blossomed into an exciting new perfume.
Antonia's Flowers was first introduced as an Eau de Toilette in 1985. Along with Floret which was introduced in 1995 and Tiempe Passate in 1999, Antonia's Flowers has ranked in the top ten of both Barneys and Bergdorf's since its original launch. Bowing to the pressures of motherhood and a burgeoning fragrance business, Antonia retired her flower shop in 1990.
"Creating this fragrance was a natural progression for me, having been surrounded by flowers for so long. I'd like every woman to remember their favorite garden when they wear Antonia's Flowers."
