Christian Tortu


Christian Tortu is best known for single-handedly challenging the way the world sees flowers by mixing flowers, plants and vegetables in unique arrangements that strip away artifice and offer direct interpretations of nature.

The whole story of Christian Tortu, the man, the florist, and the designer, starts in the garden of his parents, farm in France’s Anjou region.

Upon arriving in Paris he realised how much real nature was lacking, in the very organised and planned parks, he wanted to offer a new look at the use of plants, a free almost wild look, the look of his childhood. 

This small range of home fragrances are so beautifully fresh. When we first opened, we sold out of Fortes diffusers in one day, people are memorised by the smell.
