Description

Aedes de Venustas - Cierge de Lune

The Rose might be the queen of flowers - but as night begins to draw in and the rose begins to close her petals against the darkness of night, it is the turn of another Queen to reign.  Cierge or Selenicereus in Latin means cactus flower in English, but we prefer the French name for her - "Reines-de-la-Nuit", or Queen of the Night. A white, spiky bloom of incomparable beauty, she proves the central inspiration for Cierge de Lune. A firm favorite of the French Queen, Marie-Antoinette, her legions of admirers would often bring her a clutch of these flowers when paying court to her. Such was her love of these flowers that she allowed the greatest botanical illustrator of all time, Pierre-Joseph Redouté, into her private gardens to paint the flower. The renowned artist captured the tender but brilliant beauty of the cactus flower and preserved it for all eternity. Selenicereus grandiflorus – the latin name refers to the nobility of the bloom itself, but does not mention its divine scent. Ah, the scent of the cactus flower! As cool and clear as the night air itself – as sensual and velvety as the cloudless night sky in the desert. This Queen of the Night no longer reigns in the gardens of Versailles but instead now raises her scepter over the southeastern United States and Mexico.
 
Cierge de Lune is a fragrance that exposes hitherto unknown facets of vanilla - aromatic and aphrodisiac sides of the bean that enchant but also leave us with a taste of danger. Madagascan absolute was used in the place of the regular Tahitian vanilla to lend a smoky, almost incensey character to the fragrance and to insert an unsettling feeling of darkness and mystery. A smattering of hot pink pepper lifts the woody, leathery vanilla like a spackle of stardust across a dark night sky, the spicy, nose-tickling effect underlined even further with a sprinkle of black pepper. A dense carpet of interwoven animalic notes such as amber, suede, musk, and incense form the base of the fragrance and gives it a depth that contrasts perfectly with the powdery and sparkling spice notes in the top. An exciting fragrance as well as a soothing one, this is a must try for those who adore spicy vanillas and creamy orientals. Bravo!
