Gorgeously deep magenta plums are hand pressed to release their luscious liquids as they fall onto strands of crimson saffron threads. Opulent and warm, they are mixed thoroughly with fuzzy suede, the intoxicating petals of golden Osmanthus, and the floral night bloomers of Angel’s Trumpet and Midnight Candy (night phlox). Overall, a beautifully amber-woody-based floral that has a sheerness to it that keeps it soft and approachable. Heavenly spiced and slightly sweet with just the right amount of golden sparkle, it transitions gently into a slightly dry wooded base atop layers of worn leather.
Notes include gold osmanthus, plum, angel’s trumpet, saffron, cinnamon bark, midnight candy, leather, and wood.
