“I was thrilled to be asked to create this fragrance by Her Excellency, and immediately knew that I would use the natural environment as my muse,” says Stephen, who trained in both the UK and Switzerland before returning to Malta. “It wasn’t difficult to be inspired by the beautiful gardens here at the Palace.

“It is also wonderful to know that this collection will help the valuable work that the MCCFF contributes to on a daily basis, and I am also so honoured that Her Excellency’s guests will be using the San Anton during their stay in Malta,” he adds.
