This extrait de parfum captures the romance and innocence of the first blooms of spring, weaving rare, spring-blooming jonquille (Narcissus poeticus) and French violets with green lime and mandarin. Osmanthus from the Valley of Osmanthus in China and orris butter imbue this parfum with spring’s promise as the earth comes to life once more.
Narcissus Poeticus is set in a rich base of rare sandalwoods, including Tamil Nadu from India. I purchased it nearly 20 years ago, Tamil Nadu is known for its exquisite warmth and a terroir that will never be available again. Narcissus Poeticus also includes a tinctured benzoin resin organic alcohol.
I have created this first limited edition parfum nearly a decade ago and I just have two precious bottles of this vintage in stock. Narcissus Poeticus extrait de parfum is packaged in a Verrieres Brosse crystal bottle and tucked into a dupioni silk pouch. The finishing touch is a Victorian scent card that captures the spirit of a time when even the advertisements were little works of art.
Notes: Jonquille, French violets, black currant bud, green lime, mandarin, osmanthus, orris butter, sandalwood.
