  • 10ml black glass bottle of LVNEA's Papillon de Nuit natural roll on perfume oil on black background

PAPILLON DE NUIT | Parfum Botanique - white florals, ambrette, sandalwood

  • $50.00
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. 

Notes:
 palo santo* · magnolia · white champaca · botanical white musk accord · tonka bean · sandalwood 

Aspects: buttery floral · white musk · soft wood dry-down 

The Ritual: Roll the desired amount onto pulse points (wrists, crooks of the arms, neck, décolletage, etc) and allow to air dry. Store in cool, dry areas or within its case after use.

Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Coconut Oil, Fractionated), Natural Fragrance/Parfum (Essential Oils, Absolutes, CO2s, Plant Extracts, and Natural Isolates).

Choose between a 10ml or 20ml black amethyst bottle with roller ball applicator, presented in a portable matte black tube.

Angelic mission

I have to write another review. I like all your fragrances but this one and saffron rouge are affecting directly my psyche. Wearing this, it feels like being on secret misson on the earth and wearing the other one, my heart becomes light, very light. So I want to have these two by my side. Beautiful, thank you!

Palo Santo Wings

Reformulated!? I am really curious how you'll do it, because this scent is all about palo santo. A lot of cacao, some buddha wood and Juniper will work wonders, but it won't be "Papillon de Nuit". I think I'll buy the reformulated scent. You've stimulated my curiosity.

Amazing Scent

This scent is really hard to describe, but it is my favorite and truly hope it can be reformulated due to the issue with Palo Santo oil. I would agree with the other reviewer that said it's both calming and arousing.

Best scent I’ve ever worn

I’m obsessed with Papillon De Nuit. It transports me to a quiet and sensual place that is uplifting while also moody and deep. I originally had a sample of it and bought it to wear during my handfasting ritual. Now, I just have to wear it everyday because I literally feel like I can’t live without it. Thank you for capturing this delicious aroma that is calming, while also arousing.
