GALLIVANT Bukhara Eau de Parfum - 100ml
A woody, floral orris perfume, composed with star perfumer Ralf Schwieger 'Perfume Extraordinaire' Finalist at the Fragrance Foundation Awards 2021.
A fairytale Uzbek city on the Silk Road. Fruits and spices – sophistication and adventure. A journey into Central Asia. Bukhara is an earthy perfume, composed around the enigmatic orris – one of perfumery’s most prized (and expensive) raw materials. Spicy, fruity and sparkling in the opening with caraway, pear, coriander and bergamot. A floral heart with iris and a touch of jasmine. Clove and apricot enrich the colours and textures. And a base of benzoin resin, saffron, amber, wood and cotton-soft musks. Made in Great Britain.

Where are Gallivant products made? Gallivant make their fragrance oil (or concentrate, as they call it) in a magical place in the hills above Grasse, in the south of France. They then bring this to our manufacturer in the Cotswolds, England, where it's mixed with fermentation grade non-synthetic alcohol, bottled, and assembled into its outer packaging (which is made by a small family-owned printer in Kent). It's a genuinely small-batch, artisan production. There's a lot of hands-on attention and genuine care and respect for the materials Gallivant work with.
Are Gallivant perfumes animal tested? That's a definite 'no.' Gallivant is a cruelty-free brand.
I'm vegan, or vegetarian - can I wear Gallivant perfumes? Yes; Gallivant perfumes are vegan-friendly - they do not use animal products in their formulations. And they do not test on animals.
Are Gallivant products 'clean' or 'non-toxic'? There are a lot of buzzwords around and many are poorly defined. At worst, there is some ill-informed scaremongering. Gallivant is not about marketing gimmicks. The founder and creator of Gallivant Nick Steward, as someone with years of experience in perfume-making, explains that Gallivant take this incredibly seriously, and go into a lot of detail with their formulations. Nick develops Gallivant's fragrances on his own skin, in the confidence that he investigates every single ingredient they use in their perfumes. Gallivant take pride in the materials they use, and how they work with them - they work within a small-batch production ethos. Gallivant is also strictly regulated by European Cosmetic & Perfume rules, and they respect and follow the International Fragrance Association rules too - designed to preserve and protect materials.
Gallivant do not add silicones, parabens, harsh sulfates (like SLS, SLES, ALS), ethanolamine, formaldehydes (or formaldehyde releasers), phthalates, PEGs, or chemical SPFs. So that would make their perfumes 'clean.' The alcohol Gallivant use is a non-synthetic fermentation grade. And on the topic of buzzwords, Gallivant also work in an ethical and sustainable way (like paying their partners on time! and taking the time to get to know the people they work with) so it's not just about making ‘good’ products or 'corporate responsibility marketing' claims and labels, it's about behaving intelligently, positively and with good manners. Above all, Gallivant choose to work in a slow and thoughtful way.
