This perfume is breathtaking! A gorgeous tuberose, heady and narcotic. Roses come in and mix with the indolic white florals and a touch of rich vanilla. It's a very complex and intoxicating fragrance with amazing longevity. I love it. Excellent customer service as well, always a joy!

Fantastic customer service and a lovely perfume that smells just like an earthy fresh honeycomb. The bottle and dark juice is beautiful.

About

Finding The Poetry in Fragrance

I am always asked why and how I create fragrance. I think it is quite a mystery to many. It begins with a certain olfactory awareness- taking the time to smell a flowering tree on your way down a crowded NYC street. Taking the time to smell the metal of cars and busses, the asphalt, the sugared peanuts roasting in tiny pushcarts...
This for me, is the beginning of the olfactory poem. It is the balance of notes all around us that captures my imagination . The cacophony of smells can be harnessed and trained into a composition, an idea, an emotion captured in a bottle. This is where the creation happens- in the sourcing of notes that will recreate the idea. I procure oils from all around the world; some very rare, that I will use to compose a fragrance, and my hope is to create a certain poetry within each bottle. Every scent has it's story. Some tell tales of love and loss, others of far away places, others of a beloved passage of a song or book. This is the power of fragrance..to evoke emotion and memory, and stir the heart into beating just a little bit faster.
