The Heavenly Gingerlily Collection

Tahiti - the island inspiration for the Heavenly Gingerlily story, which brings to life a beautiful love poem by English travel writer and poet, Rupert Brooke.

THE STORY

The Heavenly Gingerlily story is inspired by Rupert Brooke's 1914 love poem 'Tiare Tahiti', written for a native Tahitian, Taatamata, whom he fell in love with on his South Pacific travels.

Our story focuses on Taatamata as she reflects on the poem after Brooke returns to England. An intimate set of moments on her island paradise that perfectly captures the wanderlust, escapist nature of Heavenly Gingerlily.

The palms, and sunlight, and the south;
Love shall be; For hearts, Immutability;
dawns of pearl and gold and red,
the whispering scents that stray
About the idle warm lagoon.

Oh, Heaven’s Heaven!

A poem inspired by Rupert Brooke's 'Tiare Tahiti'

Tahiti - heaven on earth

A jewel in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia.

Surrounded by crystal blue lagoons and famous for its black sand beaches (the exfoliating grains of which are in our Heavenly Gingerlily Body Polisher), Tahiti is one of the world's most idyllic and remote settings.
