Gracing the Dawn natural organic perfume is abundant in exotic florals artfully woven together as a violet chypre fragrance. One of the highlighted essences is Cestrum nocturnum, night queen, from South India which is paired with notes of jasmine, fern, leather, violet, mimosa and wood. The fragrance has the aroma of the color purple and a distinct vintage. One perfumista finds the aroma like the original Magic Noir perfume by Lancome.

This listing is for the glass vial containing 1 gram by weight of pure liquid perfume (1 gram is .036 ounces.) The vial is about 1 and 1/4 inch / 4mm tall.

The fragrance and inspired image is called Gracing the Dawn, a reference to the Three Graces from Greek mythology. Fantastical butterflies sit on the bough of a tree with freshly opened blossoms just as the first light of dawn illuminates the sky.

The perfume is ethereal, velvety and sultry evoking a vintage from days long gone or perhaps an alternate dimension where we glimpse luminous winged sprites on a wet, black bough.

The main notes in this botanical medley include resin, mimosa, wood, and Italian bergamot. The final composition of this first edition features a tincture of violets I made with flowers from my mothers garden in Organic grain alcohol. The medley of note in this bouquet includes some of the most expensive aromatics found on planet Earth.

I have labeled this perfume as "natural" instead of botanical because there is a microscopic amount of Africa stone in the base accord. Africa stone is the fossilized droppings of a small animal from Africa which has been distilled. Since it is an animal product, I use the term natural. There is less than 1% contained in the final perfume.

The perfume is part of a series titled Flowers of Fortune associated with artwork by my award winning husband Greg Spalenka. Artwork and image debuted at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con. The butterfly image is ©GregSpalenka, it is a cropped version of the original image. See more of Greg's work on his website and here at Etsy:
