Size Os
Cool and limpid as moonlit desert air. Velvety and sensuous as the midnight sky... Like the flower's namesake - the Queen of the Night in Mozart's Magic Flute - Cierge de Lune spans a thrilling range, from crystalline high notes to a deep nocturnal purr. Inspired by the fragrance of the night-blooming cereus - spicy vanilla laced with wisps of incense - Fabrice Pellegrin unveils the dark side of vanilla with an outstanding Madagascan absolute. Woodier and more ambery than its Tahitian counterpart with a tinge of tawny leather, it forms the heart of the composition. An airy waft of hedione transmutes the delectable pod into a cactus blossom, its pristine petals fleshed out by ylang-ylang. To add vibrancy and brightness, twinkling pink pepper shoots glints of moonlight into the velvety blend, while black pepper runs an intriguing thread, from mineral, incense-like effects - a nod to the olfactory theme of AEDES DE VENUSTAS' first offerings - to resinous, smoky, dark chocolate notes... Then, in a final metamorphosis, musky Ambrox, underscored by a downy suede accord, turns the nocturnal bloom into a dusky second skin... 3.4 fl oz/100ml EDP
