PAPILLON DE NUIT | Botanical Perfume - white florals, ambrette, sandalwood
Determinism stitched in wings
That, t’wards beloved, soar through air
The cordial tug of the sweet thing
Sets fire to moth’s wing-spanned hair.
Drape yourself in the fluttering expanse of finespun wings and lunar opalescence, inspired by the secret world of moonbeams, night-blooming flowers, and their delicate nocturnal pollinators.
Like butterflies, papillons de nuit (french for "night butterflies", — moths) are indispensable pollinators, gorged on nectar and saddled with pollen. Because of their poor sense of sight, these fragile creatures rely on the potent fragrance of nocturnal blooms to find them, as well as on the milky-white, moon-reflecting surface of their petals.
