Bulgakov natural perfume was inspired by my favourite book – The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. (Ма́стер и Маргари́та).
The most startling of political satires, The Master and Margarita reflects Bulgakov’s controversial views on the stridently atheist politics of Stalin’s regime, and is considered one of the greatest novels of the 20th century.
This fragrant labour-of-love merely sought to fit into the story. At once referencing the gloom and struggle faced by Russian writers and poets in the 1930s, Bulgakov natural perfume also draws back the plush velvet curtains on some very strange passions and human desires. It flashes and glints with hidden luxuries of faded opulence, small comforts and the hushed and hallowed halls of privilege. Step into the past to a marvelous pageant of simmering passions, madness, desire, brilliance, comedy and tragedy. The homely notes of lemon and aniseed open the story, but be prepared for a grand and mysterious adventure to unfold where the transformation to dry-down will enrapture your soul.
Aniseed, Lemon, Iris, Rose Damascena, Narcissus, Jasmine Grandiflorum, Cypriol, Oakmoss, Galbanum, Labdanum, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Sandalwood.
