Lingua Planta is the language of scent, through and through. Its founder, Merle Bergers, experienced the the inter-connectedness of plants and trees, insects and bigger animals firsthand by growing up in a small forest in the east of the Netherlands. During her studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven she grew more and more fascinated by the possible reality of plant communication. Nourished through books by the likes of forester ecologist Peter Wohlleben and writer/biologist Robin Wall Kimmerer she went on a journey to dig deep into the matter of plants fragrant messages. Inspired by the volatiles plants use to communicate, Lingua Planta has its roots deep down in scientific research but found an aesthetic translation in perfumes. Lingua Planta is based in de Bilt, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Get to know Lingua Planta's creations with this sample set of 5 x 2 ml perfume spray bottles, including: Defend, Repel, Attract, Henosis, and Understory.

Attract:  a rosy, fresh perfume leads you deep into an empathetic understanding of the olfactory language of plants.

Repel: invoked by the invigorating scent of vetiver, bergamot, galbanum and citrus oils, you imagine yourself sitting underneath a lemon tree in a Sicilian vegetable garden in spring.

Defend: green broken stems, trampled grass and seeping tree resins reminisce a forest walk. Cedarwood, the smell of fresh cut grass, oakmoss and agarwood invite us to think about the regenerative aspects of a forest. This perfume is grounding and has anxiety relieving effects.

Henosis: a powerful, smokey scent where the odor of a smoldering forest fire is slowly wrapped in the soothing energy of cedarwood and frankincense. The warming fumes of resinous materials and ambrette seeds are known to be calming on human beings, the vetiver and oakmoss help us to ground.

Understory: while Attract, Repel and Defend are all about plants communicating above ground, Understory is about the intelligence, communication and collaboration underground between mycelium and trees. Translated into a wearable perfume that harnesses the scent of the undergrowth; mosses, pine, earthy notes of Patchouli and Vetiver, softened by amyris, tonka and lavender absolute. Our most intricate and layered scent.
