The Body Shop has launched a collection of five eau de parfum, inspired by some of the planet's most precious natural scents. The essence of each botanical is recreated without harm, allowing the plant to live on.

Headspace technology involves cocooning the plant, flower or wood in a glass sphere, and creating a vacuum where the fragrance compound emitted by the plant can be sampled. The essence is then recreated and incorporated into a bottled fragrance, leaving nature untouched, while recreating the scents of some of the rarest plant species that are blended with natural essences and extracts.

BOWHANTI Bowhanti, the scent created from the Wacapou tree is combined with a blend of patchouli and incense to produce a spicy fragrance inspired by the French Guianan tropical rainforest in Amazonia.

SWIETENIA Mahogany flower combined with orange flower and bigarade leaf result in a scent inspired by Bangalore, India.

WIDDRINGTONIA This scent combines Clanwilliam cedarwood, sage and vetiver inspired by Cederberg Mountain range in the Western Cape, South Africa.

NIGRITELLA Nigritella, the fragrance from The Apls, Switzerland, is a fusion of Red Vanilla Orchid, tuberose and vanilla.

KAHAIA The Kahaia flower inspired the Bora Bora, Polynesia scent, and is combined with Jasmine Sambac and Benzoin. The Kahaia bush only emits its scent at night.
