The birth of Blue Lotus oriental amber perfume:- At a lovely dinner party one night, our guests Anthony and Dei spoke about their amazing ylang ylang tree (Cananga Odorata) which was flowering more prolifically than they had ever previously experienced. I sighed… ‘how heavenly. If I had a ylang ylang tree I would tincture its blossoms and make a marvelous perfume base’. ‘Really?’ they asked, ‘and how do you do that?’ A couple of months later they presented me with a litre of black tincture bursting with the wonderful aromas of that very tree. I set to with a fragrance plan.
The beautiful Blue Lotus oriental amber is an intensely erotic, spicy oriental featuring hand-tinctured Ylang Ylang, Amyris, Amber accord, Cardamon, hand-tinctured Bourbon Vanilla beans (another magical story about another wonderful friend named Wolfgang in PNG who sent me 2 kilograms of the best Planifolia vanilla beans I’ve ever seen), Ambrette seed, Mysore Sandalwood and of course, the seductive mastery of Blue Lotus absolute from Egypt. Just divine.
50ml in vintage French crystal.
