Floral Oriental A new Cinderella is born
DAMASCENA ROSE: Native to Turkey and Bulgaria, Damascena rose is used in the form of both essence and absolute. This mainstay of the perfumer’s palette can be found in the heart notes of Midnight Poison, J’adore extract and Eau de Dolce Vita.
PATCHOULI: Patchouli is a plant native to Indonesia and Malaysia. Indispensable to any perfumer, patchouli essence is obtained by steam distillation of the dried leaves. It is to be found in chypre, woody and oriental fragrances. This valued ingredient forms the dry-down of Miss Dior, Eau Fraîche, Dioressence, Eau de Dolce Vita, and the heart notes of Midnight Poison.
AMBER: This animal-derived ingredient lends depth and sensuality to fragrance. So rare was this precious substance that it cost its weight in gold. The amber note is now used in both men’s and women’s compositions, and it forms the mysterious facet of the dry-down of Midnight Poison.
