#44 Noctiflorous Perfume
• Plant Extract Fine Fragrance •
Noctiflorous ~ (Adj) Flowering at night.
Feral Florals • Honeyed Tobacco • Spice
Fascinating flowers that bloom only at night such as phlox, moonflower, jasmine, brugmansia, nicotana, cactus & evening primrose deploy scents like siren calls verging on the narcotic.
Night bloomers are beacons, their moonlight reflecting blossoms making a theater for moths & in turn their predators, bats, who do the necessary deed of collecting and scattering pollen to keep the plants alive.
These enchanting blossoms offer to the darkness a dusty white floral aroma with a soft spicy undertone, honey-tobacco & vanilla that combines the rich clove smell of dianthus, emitting a strong, sweet jasmine.
Plants that unfurl their petals only in darkness unleashing drama & poetry of their blossoming, exuding a heavy-lidded fragrance of sweetness teetering on decay.
This dance in the dark is nature taking its power back; it’s a quiet, secret thing, reminding us that nothing lasts.
Plant extract natural perfume is a work of art that will hold differing aromas upon each individual’s flesh throughout each aspect of the scent. From the opening top note to the final dry down, it is best experienced on the skin, opposed to solely sniffing the bottle, allowing the perfume to be truly embraced, understood & appreciated.
Welcome to our perfume library! Years in the making, inspired by beautiful, unique words, this new collection of natural perfume has been created for one to layer, merge together, apply ritually, creating their own unique signature scent.
Our own smell is personal to us, and completely unique. How we smell is predetermined, and comes from the same genes which determine our body’s tissue type. We all have our ‘scent blind spots’, smells which we cannot pick up. This means that we all smell things differently, and the scents we enjoy are entirely unique to us.
Since time immemorial, people have approached fragrance ritualistically, layering on multiple oils, or attars. To have the most surprising effect, it’s important to blend fragrances that have diverse facets. Some scents that you can’t put together in the same bottle or formula, because they’re too extreme and turn out smelling horrible, are actually wonderful when you blend them in a layering process. Perfume layering is the best way to explore new aromas, merging untraditional ingredients to create one’s personal story upon the flesh.
