I asked him for it. For the blood, for the rust, for the sin. I didn’t want the pearls other girls talked about, or the fine marble of palaces, or even the roses in the mouth of servants.
I wanted pomegranates. I wanted darkness, I wanted him. So I grabbed my king and ran away to a land of death, where I reigned and people whispered that I’d been dragged.
l’Il tell you I’ve changed. l’Il tell you, the red on my lips isn’t wine. I hope you’ve heard of horns, but that isn’t half of it. Out of an entire kingdom he kneels only to me, calls me Queen, calls me Mercy.
Mama, Mama, I hope you get this. Know the bed is warm and our hearts are cold, know never have I been better than when I am here. Do not send flowers, we’ll throw them in the river.
‘Flowers are for the dead’ ‘least that’s what the mortals say. I’ll come back when he bores me, but Mama, not today. ~ Daniella Michalleni
Opening with a blast of black currant absolute, sweet hyraceum musk & tonka bean, this aroma almost immediately burrows into warm cinnamon, black hemlock & pomegranate upon the flesh.
Fiercely succulent, this aroma was created to embrace one’s inner Persephone.
*This animatic collection introduces hyraceum, which is the mineralized urine and faeces of the Kenyan Rock Hyrax, the only other animal related to the elephant.
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.
