Inspired by and dedicated to the Moon Flower, the Queen of the Night, a rare and exquisite night blooming desert flower that blooms for only one night each year. One of the most unique plants of the desert, the Night-blooming Cereus, also known as the Moon flower or Queen of the Night is a member of the Cactus Family that resembles nothing more than a dead bush most of the year. It is rarely seen in the wild because of its inconspicuousness. But for one midsummer's night each year, its exqusitely scented flower opens as night falls, then closes forever with the first rays of the morning sun.
Night Queen is a deliciously complex and masterful floriental fragrance Absolutely delicious straight from the bottle. At first sniff, it smells very much like a mixture of velvety peaches and orange flowers. It smells warm and very edible. Extremely cosy like a drowsy Sunday morning in a bottle. Lemony-peony-peach flowers, and earthiness combined with an aromatic accord that is brilliantly cheerful and luxurious. As time progresses, the fragrance developes into a powderiness that identifies itself as a warm sweet spicy sultry woods, peony, gardenia and tuberose type accord that bloom together like white flowers in a dense, dark night. The florals are as bright as a full white moon on a black sea. Long hours later, after the perfume has calmed down, a fresh and tender green earthiness rises to a soft sensual vanilla and light woods finish and the perfume becomes very sophisticated, very "night out," and strangest of all, it becomes comforting.
