The Muse: The Queen of the Night
The French call it cierge de lune – “moon altar candle”, a literal translation of the Latin Selenicereus grandiflorus. Since its spectacular flower only opens after dark and wilts as the sun rises, the New World cactus species is also known as night-blooming cereus or queen of the night… It is said that Queen Marie-Antoinette summoned the botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté at midnight to capture its poignantly fleeting beauty. Today, AEDES DE VENUSTAS and the perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin capture the suave scent of this glamorous, elusive muse.
The Scent: Cierge de Lune
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… at midnight to capture its poignantly fleeting beauty.
Top Notes: Crystalline accord
Heart Notess: Vanilla absolute from Madagascar, pink pepper, black pepper, ylang ylang
Base Notes: Suede accord, incense, amber, musk
Perfumer: Fabrice Pellegrin
