Floris at British Polo Day Morocco

May 5, 2015

We are delighted to be working with our friends at British Polo Day, and to have had the honour to be in Marrakech for their recent event under the high patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI of Morocco, as part of the Royal Moroccan Polo Federation.

The event was for the benefit of The Eve Branson Foundation whose remarkable work continues to transform lives for countless women and young girls of Morocco and their families by helping them to live self sufficiently, and I am pleased that they were able to raise considerable much needed funds over the few days.

Having just missed the Moroccan Festival of Roses by a few days, I was still keen to experience the scent of the native flower for myself.

On the Friday I made the short journey to the stunning Beldi Country Club which I had been told had the most sensational scented rose gardens. I was truly captivated by the fabulous beauty and wonderful warm scent of the blooms as I arrived and was fortunate enough to be able to spend a couple of hours just wandering through the fields, smelling the many types of rose that were growing there.

The scent varied considerably from one rose variety to another and from colour to colour. Some roses had a fresh, clean sparkling citrus quality to them while others had a deep, yet delicate, almost what I can only describe as vintage and traditional scent to them, and there were a multitude of different variations in between. I took photographs of the roses that had the most exquisite scent in the hope of being able to find them again, and many pictures of the vibrantly coloured gardens themselves.

The British Polo Day event itself was nothing short of spectacular and I was extremely fortunate to be in such wonderful company, and make many new friends over many interesting conversations throughout the weekend. I very much look forward to returning to the beautiful country again soon.
