    Henri Rousseau, The Snake Charmer, 1907

    Nuit Noir
    Exquisite leather and deepest orange liqueur;
    a swirl of woods and dark delight.
    Dancing, running, into dangerous night.
    Animals; cunning, strong and still loving,
    the smooth blackness of the ancient trees.

    Middle Notes
    Oliban, Cinnamon, Tuberose, Sandalwood,
